Peace is not the absence of conflict.

“Peace is not the absence of conflict, but the ability to cope with it.” – Unknown

This quote means that there will always be conflicting issues and only through how we deal with our everyday problems can we find true peace
Avoiding every problem is impossible. Eventually you will have to face them head on. Once you have effaced your issues, can you truly fin an inner sanctuary. It’s not entirely about facing your problems but infact how you deal with them. If somebody were to start an argument with you, sure you could argue back with yelling and make matters worse, or you could try and calm this person down. Understand their side of the story and try to explain yours, peacefully. There’s enough violence in this world alone. We don’t need to add to it

Peace Comes From Within

Inner peace is not dependent on circumstances or external situations. Inner peace comes from within you.

Often, after achieving something, finishing something, or solving a problem, you experience a brief moment of peace, but soon forget it, embarking on the next project, goal, task or problem. This sense of inner peace is of short duration, and is unstable.

In these situations, it seems as if inner peace is dependent on the accomplishment of some task, or goal, and can exist only after you do, get or achieve this or that. This is a completely erroneous assumption.

This erroneous assumption associates the state of inner peace with certain activities, or rather achieving, gaining or doing something. It seems as if external circumstances and certain actions are the cause of the sense of peace.

Peace In Peace Out

Peace Revolution is a project born in 2008 in Thailand aiming to promote the culture of peace through the practice of meditation and mindfulness.

Peace Revolution’s slogan, Peace In Peace Out (PIPO), stands for each individual’s choice to be the change they want to see in the world. We believe that world peace is achievable, but just if each individual works on developing his inner peace first. Hence, when improving our inner peace, we are contributing to develop a peaceful environment around us.

Thus, through individual mindful action, we can make sustainable world peace a tangible reality.

CHANGING THE WORLD IS POSSIBLE

One Thought. One Day. One individual at a time.

Pink For Peace

Friends Without Borders

Friends without borders

Welcome to a brand new approach to world peace.

All across India, tens of thousands of children have begun writing heartfelt letters to the students in Pakistan. All across Pakistan, tens of thousands of children are replying with heartfelt letters back. New connections are being made. New friendships are being formed.

Imagine if all the schools from both nations were to participate? What will happen when this generation grows up?

At Friends Without Borders, we are making this possible, and invite you and your school to take part in this historic heart-to-heart experiment.

Children have a natural instinct toward friendship and will jump to reach out and create new friends, when given the opportunity. The simple act of writing a letter leaves deep and lasting impressions that help to humanize ‘the other.’ These are the seeds that promise to mature into a safer, friendlier world.

You can get involved with Friends Without Borders by:

1. Encourage as many schools as possible to participate – especially your own.

2. Get all your friends and family involved – have them ask their schools.

3. Get the word out in the media about this new approach to peace!

 

I came across Friends without borders and was inspired by their passion and especially their approach to peace.  It has long been my belief that if the people of the world would openly communicate with each other that the perceived tensions between us would greatly lesson.  I am from the US and through out my life I have been told that we do not like Russia, They are our enemies. But on a number of occasions I have met People from Russia. Our interactions were fantastic and never did I have the thoughts that I did not like them JUST because they were from Russia. So I for one do not understand all the hate and problems we have with Russia and it’s wonderful people. Maybe I should get a pen pal from there. Hmmm!

Why Pink

     

We chose pink because it sparks happiness in people. Pink is a color that is hard to be mad around. Here is a good explanation of the color pink.

“Pink Color Meaning:

The color pink represents caring, compassion and love. The pink color stands for unconditional love and understanding, and is associated with giving and receiving care. Since pink is a combination of red and white, both colors add a little to its characteristics. It gets the lust for action from the red color, and the white color gives it an opportunity to achieve success and insight. Passion and power from the color red, softened with the purity and openness of the white color completes pink color meaning. The deeper the pink color, the more passion and energy it radiates.”

Bringing about a more peaceful world on the surface seems a daunting task.  But after a close look it actually comes down to the attitude of people. And something as simple as a color can have the effect of changing a mood from negative to positive.  The next time you feel the frustration building in your life. Take a moment and think about the color pink and see if a peaceful happy feeling does not start to change your mood and bring a new perspective to your life.
