We cannot achieve world peace without first achieving peace within ourselves… Inner peace. In an atmosphere of hatred, anger, competition and violence, no lasting peace can be achieved. These negative and destructive forces must be overcome by compassion, love and altruism, which are the essential teaching at home through family relationships.
I suggest that world leaders meet about once a year in a beautiful place without any business, just to get to know each other as human beings. Then, later, they could meet to discuss mutual and global problems. I am sure many others share my wish that world leaders meet at the conference table in such an atmosphere of mutual respect and understanding of each other’s humanness.
