Peace, not Conflict

Peace, not Conflict

Peace cannot be achieved by making war on the enemy. No one wins in a war. That period of cessation from war is not peace; it is a gap between conflicts. If we are to achieve real peace, we must, instead of making more and more weapons of warfare, as the scripture says, ‘beat our swords into ploughshares and our spears into pruning hooks.” The resources of Mother Earth must be used, not for destruction, but constructively and, as as a wise president Abraham Lincoln puts it, “Are we not destroying our enemies when we make them our friends?”. Friendship, with the power of Love, can free us from fear and anxiety, and bring the Peace which can make this earth a paradise.
