Successful Relationships Reading Corner
In this week’s blog and the season of desire for peace on earth, we wrote about how to spread peace through your relationship. Here are some words of wisdom about this very important subject.
A Human Approach to World Peace “The premise behind this idea of universal responsibility is the simple fact that, in general terms, all others’ desires are the same as mine. Every being wants happiness and does not want suffering. If we, as intelligent human beings, do not accept this fact, there will be more and more suffering on this planet. If we adopt a self-centred approach to life and constantly try to use others for our own self-interest, we may gain temporary benefits, but in the long run we will not succeed in achieving even personal happiness, and world peace will be completely out of the question.”
13 Practical Steps to Inner Peace “In a culture that venerates busyness and constant stimulation, you have to make peace a priority if you want to reap the benefits. Finding inner peace is more about being than doing. It’s about leaning toward rather than struggling against. It’s about being fully present and focused on the task at hand.”
World peace “World peace, or peace on Earth, is the concept of an ideal state of happiness, freedom and peace within and among all people and nations on Planet Earth. This idea of world nonviolence is one motivation for people and nations to willingly cooperate, either voluntarily or by virtue of a system of governance that has this objective. Different cultures, religions, philosophies and organisations have varying concepts on how such a state would come about.”
