When it comes to peace, how would you describe yourself?
I feel the pain in the world
What do you believe are the 'burning issues' today?
War, Hunger, Poverty, Education, Our Planet, Violence
What must we overcome to achieve peace?
Greed
More
Greed is that unbridled desire to have it (be it power or resources) all whether it belongs to another or whether or not one already possesses an excess. Greed manipulates hate, prejudice, fear. Greed preys on ignorance and many other human foibles to feed it's desires. Religion in my opinion is just another factor that is manipulated by greed. Religion/belief/faith appears to be simply another tool of manipulation in the hands of greedy misguided leaders. War and violence are the cancers that erupt when greed has tangled commonsense up.
Can we change the world?
Definitely

Positively Giraffe, is another online forum where I seek to bring about stronger more peaceful communities.

Yes

What Does It Mean to Humble One's Self ?

Posted on March 8, 2009 at 5:48pm 0 Comments

The search for an answer to my question has taken me through scores of responses. I have come to the following conclusion: Humbling one's self means recognizing and accepting that everyone is of equal value; recognizing and accepting that no one is more worthy or more significant than another. This includes a true respect for one's self and for all others whether we perceive them as weaker or stronger. Humbling one's self is understanding and accepting one's rightful place or position in… Continue

“It is often easier to become outraged by injustice half a world away than by oppression and discrimination half a block from home.” -- Carl T. Rowan



Can fear of a people result in peace? I for one, doubt this very much. Collective fear of a people builds walls that further separate people, deepens suspicions and fuels hatred. For the width of a rabbit's hair, I hesitated to write this moment's blog, but I know that understanding and perspective taking help people know each other… Continue

“Promise me you'll always remember: You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. Christopher Robin to Pooh” -- A. A. Milne



The world can be such a scary place sometimes. Everyone seems to be searching for something. Some search with such fierce intensity, uncaring and desperation; it is scary. I continue to be most grateful for those who in their search are respectful and reasonably considerate of others.



Interesting how these… Continue

Star Bright Star Light - Words That Guide My Head and Feet

Posted on February 2, 2009 at 8:00pm 0 Comments

Here are some quotes that serve me well. I treasure them and thank the one who raised me and who provided the framework for my thinking in those crucial formative years. I intend to keep adding to them over time.



"People mistakedly assume that their thinking is done by their head; it is actually done by the heart which first dictates the conclusion, then commands the head to provide the reasoning that will defend it."

... Anthony De Mello



"The highest reward for a… Continue

A Place Where I Belong

Posted on January 24, 2009 at 11:00pm 0 Comments

It's amazing how many children walk on this earth living in pain that is not of their own making, yet feeling the pain of others so intensely that they just seem so odd and so different. We wonder why they always seem to be in pain; why they never seem to feel like they have a place to call their own in this world. We wonder why they are always aloof; always standing apart; always standing away from the boisterous crowd; always so ready to leave the earth space to into which they've been born.… Continue
