When it comes to peace, how would you describe yourself?
I am a born activist
What do you believe are the 'burning issues' today?
War, Hunger, Poverty, Education, Our Planet, Violence, Human Rights, Our Shrinking Freedom
So what is it?
What is the most burning issue? human rights - if we were to put human rights as the top importance we would not have war, hunger, poverty, or shrinking freedoms
What must we overcome to achieve peace?
Fear caused by ignorance. Ignorance of people and religions that are different than what one may know. Fear drives people to hate the things they do not understand. In some respects you could say that fear drives greed and the desire for power, by fearing that by ourselves we are not enough, by thinking that we need "things" to make us important or worthy.
Can we change the world?
More about me
I think each of us plays a major part in creating a peaceful world. Even the smallest action can be the catalyst to a big change in the awareness of others toward a peaceful world.
I believe religions and spiritual practices seek to teach us to become more loving and compassionate people, to strive to become better than we may be at present. They all have value and all should be respected. We each have a right to choose our own paths and we should be respectful of each other’s choices, even if they are not our own. They are of equal value and should never be dismissed or devalued. Mutual respect is necessary for Peace of any kind. Tolerance is led by compassion and is the path to understanding.
I find my own peace connecting with nature. I hike in the wilderness of Arizona as frequently as I can. I find the beauty and quite simplicity being in the middle of nowhere the most peaceful times for meditating and connecting with our world.
