Our nations will not be at peace until we are at peace. Laying down the sword is a good first step, but peace is a positive emotion, not simply the lack of negative emotions. When peace is present, all thoughts of conflict are nonexistent, because we finally realize there is nothing and no one causing conflict but ourselves. When peace arrives we understand the only one who needed to change was ourselves, and when we change and welcome peace into our lives, peace spreads naturally to our world.
One of the biggest conflicts to peace stems from religious organizations and their belief they have a monopoly on Truth. Setting down the religious sword proves almost impossible because of this one consistent belief — spoken or unspoken — that our way is the right way and the only way to reach life after death.
Peace will only come when we release the thought that we are “chosen,” as the only children of The Divine, and that everyone must conform to our way of faith. Even the belief that we are special promotes the idea that we have a lock on the right and only path Home. We are all special. Everyone can find a path that will take them Home. No one has to die to prove that their way is the only way.
