“Love is the creative force of the Universe.
It is the fabric of all.
It is the essence of all.”

― Ashar, Pleiades. Channelled by Dawn Henderson in Starspeak

“Only by creating peace within our own mind and helping others to do the same can we hope to achieve peace in this world.”

“Without inner peace, outer peace is impossible. We all wish for world peace, but world peace will never be acheived unless we first establish peace within our own minds. We can send so-called ‘peacekeeping forces’ into areas of conflict, but peace cannot be oppossed from the outside with guns.”

― Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, from Modern Buddhism (link in right border)
This is one of my favourite quotes, because it brings the responsibility right back home to us.

“WWIII will be an interplanetary war”

(General Douglas MacArthur 1955, in his last speech to Congress, quoted by Dr. Stephen Greer).

Which seems like a bit of a jump from quotes on love n’peace; but holding the opposite minds of dislike and anger can easily become a slippery slope.
Isn’t this already a reality on this world?

The next world war will not started by aliens, (who aren’t at all hostile) but those who govern the Earth (who mostly are).
But whoever the governors are; hostilities only ever commence if people are numbed enough to believe their lies and follow their orders.

arms 4 war

In the perfect world, arms would only be used for hugs

And no war of any kind can happen if we, the people, reach out to each other with peaceful and loving minds instead.
Actions of loving kindness have a ripple effect that send energetic waves throughout the cosmos.
There is a power in this that can only come from love; because love is the fabric of the universe.

“I am not only a pacifist but a militant pacifist. I am willing to fight for peace. Nothing will end war unless the people themselves refuse to go to war.”

Politics and Religion Don’t Mix

I don’t tend do politics, especially not on this site.
But what started out as a brief post championing good moral values and Buddhist / spiritual beliefs in relation to politics, has spun off on a political tangent, with the bit of Buddhism I was going to expand on thrown in at the end.

I’m blaming the fireworks raging outside. It’s Bonfire Night here in England, the annual celebration of Guy Fawkes trying to blow up parliament. The mask of Anonymous and the Occupy Movement, is of course the face of Guy Fawkes, popularised the V for Vendetta graphic novel and movie.
Seems a good night to go on a political rant, doesn’t it?

Well, you’ve been warned…

But really, I don’t really think politics and religion mix that well.
Nagarjuna, a Buddhist master,  prayed never to reborn as a politician, because of the huge potential to create negative karma. Given how quickly even this post went askew, it’s easy to see how even with the best of intentions that can happen.

Gandhi would beg to differ though, saying that “in politics also we have to establish the kingdom of Heaven.” He considered “politics bereft of religion to be absolute dirt, ever to be shunned.”
