Every time we turn on the news we see violence, suffering, and injustice happening on our planet. Sometimes we are silent, sometimes we speak out and take action.
World peace, or peace on Earth, is the concept of an ideal state of happiness, freedom and peace within and among all people and nations on earth. This idea of world non-violence is one motivation for people and nations to willingly cooperate, either voluntarily or by virtue of a system of governance that objects it will be solved by love and peace. Different cultures, religions, philosophies and organisations have varying concepts on how such a state would come about.
Various religious and secular organisations have the stated aim of achieving world peace through addressing human rights, technology, education, engineering, medicine or diplomacy used as an end to all forms of fighting.
The dominant paradigm of the most powerful civilizations has been one of materialism, conquest, greed, militarism, war, injustice, inequality, violence, and dualistic thinking. We can all be a part of something new that is more in tune with the ways of Nature, more balanced, holistic, compassionate, creative, loving and wise.
