Peace Begins With Me

 

World peace is us...We are each walking agents of the vision of peace we carry inside us - Kathleen Vande Kieft

Add Action

 

The "Peace Begins with Me" program is built around the simple notion that lasting peace begins in the hearts and minds of us all. It is simple mathematics to realize that peace in our thoughts, prayers and meditations translates into peace in the world. While there is still anger and hate within and between us, then somewhere it will have to be vented, and so there is conflict and war.

By taking personal responsibility for war we stop laying blame and getting angry (contributing to more war!) and accept that we are all accountable to start changing the world consciousness beginning with ourselves. Our childlike conclusion is that each peaceful action makes a lasting change for peace in the world, and eventually government leaders and lasting political change will follow.

"Peace Begins with Me" is the opportunity for you to register your or your group's actions for peace. No matter how small, your efforts are a step for each of us and you will be surprised how the smallest action makes the largest statement. Gandhi's spoon of salt was the beginning of the end for England's colonialism. You need to be a member of the World Peace Society first, and we ask that each action will have at least a one minute meditation for peace.

Berkeley Primary School in Wollongong recently explored how "Peace Begins With Me". Learning about the horrible events of Hiroshima encouraged students to then focus on how they as individuals could make a difference for peace. Click here for the full story.

Jayendra  Non-violence, find peace - World Peace Society of Australia I strongly recommend everyone to read the book Non-violent Communicaiton by Marshall Rosenberg. Reading that book and understanding the concept of non-vioment communication and then putting those principles in practice is great way to spread peace. If one communicates non-violently, it is guranteed that he or she will always act non-violently. Remember thinking is communication with the self and all actions begin from thinking. I have been recommending everyone I know to read this book.   Wednesday, October 24, 2012

danielle  Non-violence, find peace - World Peace Society of Australia I believe that many people need to broaden their horizons to gain a clearer perspective of life. Our society does not make it any easier but together we can change. In rebuilding our lives, we need to start working from the ground up. So, I have taken it into my own hands to begin supporting a project in attempts to conquer further discrimination and judgement on those settled in rural communities. Current housing developments are under construction and need to continually be updated to better suite families that are struggling. This does not give others the right to think one deserves less because they cannot afford to provide for themselves. Love does not carry a price tag. I can only imagine what may happen after a child is given the gift of a new and stable home. Some of us have been so fortunate and yet never fully comprehend how truly blessed they really are. I hope to continue building to a better tomorrow as I reach towards a brighter future. I pray that many will follow and help us all stay positive and live happy as one. Jah bless!  Sunday, September 04, 2011

Jehanzeb   Non-violence, find peace - World Peace Society of Australia "You don't make peace by talking to your friends; you have to make peace with your enemies'." Nelson Mandela. After reading Mandela's quote I thought a lot about my strength and my role and at last it’s gave me the impression to become a peace worker. The situation is getting worst everywhere in the world and no one is secure. No one is thinking why????? I did thought about it and started practical work and I found it really encouraging. We are the world and we can change the world in a positive way. Here most of the people are professionals and we have the capabilities to do astonishing work. I am young motivated professional and want to work for my country and for people anywhere in the world. I worked in Pakistan and Afghanistan in the humanitarian sector I got the impression that the people at the grass roots level are not involved in the planning and of course in implementation. Our people are our strength and we have to encourage them in this sector through participatory approaches.  Thursday, November 05, 2009

Agilhard  Non-violence, find peace - World Peace Society of Australia Greetings from Norway After more than 10 years of work I think that I have found the only possible way to create lasting world peace. Your saying: “Peace begins with me!” is true. Peace begins in the minds of humans, and that means a different way of thinking have to be developed. That is just what I am trying to do, even if it seems impossible at present time. Peace can only be achieved by use of peaceful means, is my saying. I am a native Norwegian and so far I have been working alone along a path that no one has gone before. Some 10 years ago I decided to find out about the world religions, tales, myths and legends in the world. I feel strongly that if people of all believe and not believes start studying the Bible as a history book with a simple formula or code, they will find the lost knowledge that all humans are looking for. Only knowledge can replace all kind of beliefs in the world. Only knowledge will break the circle of evil in the world. Only knowledge will replace the world of thoughts that you were born in too and eventually give you a true understanding of a different global government system that is the only possible way to lasting World Peace. The present ruling system with many national states, a global capitalistic system and all the religions in the world have to be replaced with a global system of government with only one set of laws and living rules for the whole world population. It includes the building of a new Motherland as the base for a number of representatives from every people in the world. The new global system of government is taken from the Bible. It is done by removing the camouflage of religion.

Gautam  Non-violence, find peace - World Peace Society of Australia While we are speaking about Peace I am thinking only about our family. I strongly believe that a good family may build a peaceful society up and the society may build a peaceful world up. In this case we have the main responsibility to make a good family. So every one should think good one and teach family member the same thing. We must be careful not to do anything that might endanger our neighbor. I think we carry all time the magic stick of our Peace. Just utilize it and make a real peaceful world. Gautam Kumar Saha   Monday, July 07, 2008

David  Non-violence, find peace - World Peace Society of Australia I found a computer-grade level puzzle in the book of Matthew. Being of the family of David on paper on my mother's side, and seeing how the world looks like what "Revelations" looks like, I took the high road and have attempted to fulfill the role of the very last Jewish Prophet, for I think I did this right for all persons on Planet Earth. To see if I did this right, please go to the following link http://www.mameworld.info/ubbthreads/showthreaded.php?Number=112025 and read my post "Decoding the family secret." I posted but did not participate in the discussion group so as to set a time and date stamp on this post. Peace, in 24 hours with your own hands. David Brager  Sunday, August 12, 2007
