Peace is not a word but an action
That doesn’t mean that we all have to fight on the barricades or that we all have to be involved in the Middle East conflict. Not at all
But first we have to sort out. which for a Swede is a confusing concept. Namely the word Peace. In English it means both;
1. Peace within (Swedish Frid)
2. Peace = absence of war (Swedish Fred)
(In Swedish it is just one vocal that differ those two. Very interesting , linguistically)
Here on iPeace it is most about peace within. But is that so wrong? No of course not since that peace is a big part of the source of Peace = absence of war.
These two concepts are very connected but it is a bit confusing with the same name. For two different things. no matter how associated they are psychologically.
Many misunderstandings comes from this confusion
When I say that Peace is not a word but an action I first of all think about Peace=absence of war. Peace within is a bit on the contrary. Here it is very much about words. To talk, to listen, to comfort, to support and to try to help with heeling in different ways. That can be done even on the Net. But even here you have to be active in your listening and in your caring
That is much what this network have been doing. That is great.
Peace = absence of war, you can not create in front of a computer, no matter how many blog-posts, groups or even whole networks you write about the Middle East conflict, Dalia Lama, Gandhi etc.
We say “Amen” to it all. That’s all that happens. We all think the same here. Who are you trying to convince
For this Peace, you have to be on the barricades , as politicians or as a peace workers on place, helping people. Changing attitudes is a really great instrument too , but no use in a forum where everyone thinks the same. Then you have to go out and meet people in the reality. Those whose lives have given them a totally different opinion, about right and wrong.
They are not here. It demands much actions to reach those
So what is there concretely to do with a peace network.?
First of all stop believing in your mantra; Love, Blessings and Peace. Those words have nowhere created peace and never will. Not peace within and not peace=absence of war . These words are just to make you feel good yourselves
But it is so much we can do. Keep an open attitude, so not only those who have found salvation,can come here and dare to stay. Listen to those who do not feel so good and do not use; Be happy, that‘s a slap in the face for those with an acing soul.
So “really” being here for each other make us in a way to peacemakers. Even if we all have to leave the computer to really contribute: We have to do something concrete in our society. Everyone, who has contributed to a happy childhood, for someone, for example, is a true peacemaker in my eyes
So Peace is not a word , but an action. That goes for both meanings of the word Peace.
So much more to say, but I’m looking forward to a discussion and I can say it there.
But that‘s the problem. There are no discussions nowhere on the net.
There are just Blessings, Wishes, Greetings and the outworn word Love.
How will we ever be capable to change anything?
Two days later.
I JUST HAVE TO ADD *smile*
It may seem as if I’m a pragmatic social worker, who sees life in just black or white , whiteout any more dimensions :)
Nothing is more wrong.
I believe in the power of thoughts
I‘m sure that we are all One. All twisted together in the web of universe
I believe that new discoveries are just rediscoveries of old wisdom
I believe we have a common collective unconscious, the roots of our beings
I believe their is a meaning behind it all
I believe in a cosmic intelligence ,where nothing was created by chance, where we all were meant to be and where we all had a purpose
But I also believe that I came to this earth to do something concrete with the life I was given. To make a different in someone’s reality, since after all it is here we live and work. No matter what my philosophical, new physics, mysticism and all the other interesting theories tells me.
I will develop these thoughts in another discussion…
