means something different for each one of us: contemplating a beautiful
landscape without noise or pollution, being surrounded by good friends
and family, living a moment without worries or stress , having enough
money to survive (freedom from want). However, although these images
of peace are different we think they all have elements in common: pleasure
in being together, harmony , balance and freedom.
is a state of mind which must start with you . You are in peace with
your body when you do not make it undergo unnecessary stress, if you
do not take drugs if you do not force it. You are in peace with your
mind when you act according to principles and values and do not hurt
or destroy others.One step towards peace is admitting you are just like
the others, neither superior, nor inferior, but a human being like anybody
else. Your social or economical status you obtain through your education
or heritage but they are not inherent to you.as a human being.
you are in peace with yourself you do not wage war against the others.
You go beyond human imperfections, you respect other people and try
to help those in need. If one of the elements for peace is not there,
this unbalance may harm it and violence erupts.
think TV and movies nowadays promote violence and war in a very frivolous
way, just to make money. The result is that we become more and more
insensitive to suffering and destruction, losing our humanness. After
some time, people just accept these things are normal and do not realize
the chaotic world we live in.
peaceful world is important because we do not want ourselves and the
next generations to be engulfed in violence, death and destruction.
