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, Human Rights, Our Shrinking Freedom
What must we overcome to achieve peace?
L'ignorance est la base du problème selon moi. On fait du mal, on fait la guerre par ignorance, on s'abandonne à la colère par ignorance, on désire posséder toujours davantage par ignorance, on est malheureux par ignorance, etc. Nous avons des formations mentales erronées. La paix est notre état d'esprit naturel, lorsque nous l'avons nettoyé de toutes ses formations mentales accumulées. La paix est une pratique, un entraînement. Ça commence par nous-même. L'ignorance nous fait privilégier la chérissement de soi (source de souffrance), au détriment du chérissement des autres (source de bonheur). (sorry, I don't know how to translate my last sentence... Hope you speak french...)
The ignorance seems to be the basic of the problem.We hurt or do war because of it, we hate or we always want to possess more, we are unhappy because of it, etc. We have wrong mental formations. Sorry for my bad english . The peace is our natural state of mind, when we have washed it from all wrong mental formations. Peace is an exercise, a practice of each moment. It begins with ourself
Can we change the world?

A small Green Sea Turtle was found along a rock wall
near the Dive In dive center in Key Largo,
completely covered with thick, black oil.
The baby turtle was rescued, using mayonnaise
(which dissolves the oil without harming the turtle)
she is now named.... exxon...
Immeasurable beauty lives where dolphins swim free...
We are so blessed to experience life
on such a beautiful planet...
Although, blind to her beauty....
industrial giants profit as they destroy
the loving whales alive...
and dolphins now swim in their toxic cocktails...
If we do not defend the Living Oceans
from the industrial profiteers,

hello Isabelle, i love what you have said here.... "The peace is our natural state of mind..." i also believe that peace and kindness are our most natural ways to be... "our natural state of mind..." and that "loving one another" is the most healthy state of being we can experience... this desire is always within us... too often overshadowed by the forces outside of us that manipulate the young populations into becoming mass consumption sheep... or going into wars to accomplish the financial goals of the power hungry elite who we will never even talk to... so... living with our loving Spirit radiating from within becomes the truest path we can walk... to become the beautiful human beings.... we already are.... the truth is... i love you... and i know you love me... knowing this truth... i choose not to believe in the unkind words of anyone... knowing they have simply lost their balance... and they will regain their balance when they choose to... love is like riding a bicycle... no one can do it for you... and living in love is the only way to learn balance.. only this Action of living the path with love alive "right now" will create a life of aliveness... that leads us to the awareness of who we are... loving beings... peaceful Spirits alive in a material universe... who's greatest joy is in sharing everything we love.... it's only natural... sometimes we are blind to the real beauty... yet only love can open our eyes again... there is an ancient American Indian technique for awakening our Spirit... with every breath.... at the moment your breath stops... at the moment of each full inhale... and full exhale... pause... and touch your Spirit... do this until it reverses... in other wards... until you realize you are the Spirit... touching the physical body... you always were... and always will be... we are so blessed to Live in an infinite universe made of stardust... energized by our loving Spirit...
