World Peace

Today it’s Monday and I am sitting in my office at home with one of my cats at my feet. I feel totally relaxed and at peace and I feel deeply grateful for this experience. How many people experience true peace in their lives?
I was watching the news a few days ago and I saw updates regarding the current situations in Israel, Ukraine and Syria. Whatever your political views the loss of life on all sides is horrendous. When we see or hear about war we often think why can’t they just along? Why can’t they just be at peace? The secret to peace is that it must come from each and every one of us. If each of us acts in a kind and compassionate way towards others then the world would be a much better, safer, happier place. Each of us must act and treat others in the way we wish to be treated. It is only when we feel that we have been wronged or threatened that we become angry, defiant and destructive. By treating others with respect and compassion our own lives will become that much richer, as we develop a sense of deep compassion in our hearts.
Please remember the words that I have written today and practice respect and compassion for your fellow human beings as well as the animals and wildlife around us.
