From inner peace to world peace

Question from the Internet:

“How does inner peace contribute to world peace?”

Inner peace contributes to world peace because it is our inner, inherently “warmongering”, ruthlessly competitive, exploitative nature that is causing all the external conflicts and wars that destroy us all.

We are all born with a 100% egocentric, subjective, proudly and fiercely individualistic nature and knowingly, unknowingly we all succeed at the expense of others and Nature.

This is the sole reason for the helplessly recurring vicious historic cycles and for all the crisis situations, conflicts and wars from the level of the family to international relations.

Only when we willingly, consciously and purposefully learn how to neutralize, harness the “warring”, explosive forces, desires, inclination in ourselves, rising above the blind, instinctive “humanoid” to become “truly Human” — controlling both the inherent negative and acquired positive forces, desires, intentions in us — then we will be able to make “external peace” around us with others who also fight and succeed in the same “inner war”.
