When it comes to peace, how would you describe yourself?
I'm just a peaceful person
What do you believe are the 'burning issues' today?
War, Hunger, Poverty, Education, Our Planet, Violence, Inflation, Human Rights, Our Shrinking Freedom, Other
What must we overcome to achieve peace?
In my (humble) opinion, one of the obstacles to peace is the human mind and it's attachment to fear, hate, greed, power - the human mind has a lot to answer for! The mind is a wonderful tool if used correctly, if used for ultimate goodness for all living beings. It's time now for the human heart's crusty conditioned shell to be smashed to allow the love and gratitude for all things to shine out!
I think each and every person has an energy that emits itself into the world's atmosphere and immediate surroundings (and beyond depending on what you believe) and therefore this energy forms a collective energy which can either have a positive effect or a negative effect.
I think that the end to war and violence, fear, hate and greed the need for more, can be erraticated by looking within our own selves, at our own lives.. first. I think we need to start with ourself first. We need to be mindful of our actions, speech, thoughts and desires.
Each individual is a powerful entity in itself which forms part of the collective whole. When we look at the problems of the world today, and from the past, they are SO huge that it can seem an impossible task to make any sort of difference. But, WE ARE the world, we are the ones who are making decisions every day. WE are everyone on this earth, including the big "decision makers" politicians and corporates... at the end of the day we are all just ordinary people, made of the same blood, the same heart, we all are born, we live, we all die. I think it's just a matter of reminding ourselves and others of this, so that people's ego's (no matter who they be in society) are put into check regularly and shown that underneath all the ego stuff is a loving heart that just wants to be loved as well... and... love back.
Ahh, it's such a big complex topic to talk about, but something simple I do believe is that LOVE will ALWAYS be more powerful than hate. Hate has a louder chaotic voice, but LOVE is such a huge light, that no fragments of the dark can exists in that light, if the light of love is set free within, nurtured, given and shared.
Can we change the world?

SLIDE SHOW OF PHOTOS FROM RECENT TOUR IN BELGIUM & UK!
A person living a dream
is not waging a nightmare.
A person playing music
is not committing murder.
A person writing a poem
is not killing anyone.
A person reading a book
is not discharging a weapon.
A person painting a picture
is not spilling blood.
Somebody sculpting stone
is not polluting the earth
with another premature corpse.
To plant a garden
is not to practice rape.
To pray at dawn
is not a crime against creation.
Turn aside and look into your soul.
Not into the darkness
you have inherited from history,
but into the light coming your way
from the love of God. To humbly bow down
in the posture of mystical weeping
is to vanquish the phantoms of hatred and fear.
Everything involves a holiness in the heart;
everyone is involved in making choices.
What a difference
between the pornographers of aggression
and the artists of compassion!
Go to the place
where life embraces otherness;
enter the dialogue of becoming human.
Have you even considered
how healing the wounds of a stranger
creates laughter in children
and orchards in angels?
A person reading these words
feels like a summer cloud
floating without effort on the mirror of a river.
Tell the truth now:
Isn’t that good?
deep into the ecology of blessing
remembers the taste of wild honey
while protesting the politics of war.
Tell the truth
now: Isn’t it better to create
than to destroy?
When the DreamMaker first
introduced the DNA of dreaming
it was called Eden.
Naming took place
in the ecstasy of love.
Now tell the truth:
Isn’t peace the most
What is more defining
than the compassion of our vulnerability?
PeaceMaker – tell me:
What is your name?
