Peace is a State of Mind: It is an emotion coming from the higher-self and has various tools to be found in human consciousness. I think peace is an ability that we all can develop; the taste of peace can help us, people, nation,and Mother Earth. People are ignorant; we forget about our emotion and focus too much on our external life. How about observing, analyzing and finding out how and why we are controlled by our mind. If we let go of our ego, and try to understand universal love, we can clearly see that all of us are not dependent or independent but interdependent, and then others become our brothers and sisters.
Peaceful Mind: It has a lot of influence on our external world…many ways to this powerful attitude like meditation, vegetarianism, organic farming, and changing our conception of ego, then we might be ready to live in peace. May all the alive being find peace!
Peace and Art: Art is an expression of our intuition, emotion and ideas; humans are creative creatures. By letting this creativity get out, I think we need to not focus on external world but on our inner divinity. Developing art is one of the tools we all have to walk on a peaceful path.
