If there is to be peace…

If there is to be peace in the cities, there must be peace between neighbors; if there is to be peace within neighbors, there must be peace in the home; if there is to be peace in the home, there must be peace in the heart. ~Lao Tzu

We all want to be happy and free from misery

As human beings we all want to be happy and free from misery.
We have learned that the key to happiness is inner peace.
The greatest obstacles to inner peace are disturbing emotions such as
anger and attachment, fear and suspicion,
while love and compassion, a sense of universal responsibility
are the sources of peace and happiness. ~Dalai Lama

One moral duty

Ultimately, we have just one moral duty: to reclaim large areas of peace in ourselves, more and more peace, and to reflect it towards others. And the more peace there is in us, the more peace there will also be in our troubled world.  — Etty Hillesum

Spirituality…

Spirituality is not to be learned by flight from the world, or by running away from things, or by turning solitary and going apart from the world. Rather, we must learn an inner solitude wherever or with whomsoever we may be. We must learn to penetrate things and find God there. -Meister Eckhart

You are left with peace

People say “I want peace.” If you remove I (ego), and your want (desire), you are left with peace. ~Satya Sai Baba
