Peace from Knowledge
Continuing to Celebrate
The International Day of Peace
Knowledge is power, it is said. But true knowledge lends itself to a better understanding of what we think we know. Several questions come to mind. We invite you to explore them in your pursuit of truth, knowledge, and peace.
- Can we challenge ourselves to learn more about what Christ taught?
- Can we challenge ourselves to learn more about what Buddha taught, what Muhammad proclaimed, what the Indigenous Grandmothers reveal?
- Can we admit that our ability to learn is expansive?
- Can it lead to mutual appreciation of one another’s spiritual and religious experiences?
Heartfelt openness to others will help us to understand each other instead of tempting us to kill one another. Perhaps that is the power we really need to seek.
If you seek peace, be still
If you seek wisdom, be silent
If you seek love, be yourself
If you seek knowledge, be humble
If you seek others, be open
If you seek peace, find your heart
