”Peace does not mean to stop wars, but also to stop oppression and injustice.”
— Tawakkol Karman
”To be one, to be united is a great thing. But to respect the right to be different is maybe even greater.”
“Peace is possible by living each day focused more on the virtues of humility, kindness and compassion and less on self. It is my view that this can lead one to personal happiness and peace and ultimately allow us to grow in love and compassion for those around us who are most in need of our care and attention. These are the keys to unlocking personal and global transformation of the heart and in making peace possible.
These three elements help lead us to the humanity of service. We all survive in dependence of one another. Serving others is the compass to finding joy in the midst of suffering. We should strive for peace not only for our generation but for future generations as this is what defines our own legacy. We can ignite unity by having the courage to meet each other with a smile in dialogue and openness, creating a culture of encounter. Openness and dialogue have the ability to unite us and can extinguish all hatred and division, opening up new pathways for peace.
This is the time when we need to reach out and be present for one another, in kinship and unity. We must complete each other with compassion and tolerance, particularly for those most in need who are on the margins of our society. It is after all, not us who change the world but those who we serve, enacting a change in us. Peace, is possible.”
Our mission is to cultivate a world where every person is inspired to act with peace, tolerance and compassion.
