INTERNATIONAL DAY OF PEACE, 21st SEPTEMBER, 2015.
THE DESIRE FOR A FULL LIFE
The General Assembly of the United Nations has declared today 21st of September, 2015 as a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, both within and among all nations and peoples. The theme of this year’s commemoration is “Partnerships for Peace – Dignity for All” which focus on the importance of all sectors of society to work together to strive for peace
It is very important to plant the seeds of peace within ourselves as we also pursue eternal world peace.
We should connect with the greatest power that emanates from within- the power of love, to create cultures of peace, justice and harmony. The sacredness of life expressed through the power of love and compassion for humanity can heal the world and bring dignity for all.
Peace, love and justice should shape our lives as human beings. Peacemaking, Peace building and Peace keeping is the work that so many of us have been engaged in for so long. It is a vital work on the pathway to peace. And in the face of so many external threats to life, religion, health, environment, economy, human rights, political stability, and regional and global aggression, it is reasonable that our focus would be drawn to the world around us. Our work should be focused on conceiving of nonviolent instrumental mechanisms of peace-building that engage these issues and create the conditions for peace and human security. This is an essential work, and only accomplished if we come together in one accord without permitting our religious, cultural and national differences to hinder our goal and see our diversity as strength rather than obstacle to our collective action.
On this International Day of Peace, may we be the peace for the advancement of true love and true life in the world.
