We can learn to be more peaceful

Question from the Internet:

“Can human beings consciously choose more peaceful ways to live?”

Yes, more precisely we can consciously choose to learn how live more peacefully, as “peaceful living" is not programmed in us by default.

We are all born with an inherently self-serving, self-justifying, egocentric nature, that drives us towards ruthless competition, success, survival at each other’s expense. We can’t rest until we price to ourselves that we are higher, better, greater than others.

This inherent behaviour caused the helplessly recurring, vicious historic cycles and our present inability to solve problems, save ourselves in the face of the mounting, seemingly unsolvable global crisis.

More and more people feel the need of change, the need to build true peace instead of temporary agreements, ceasefires, fragile alliances.

And we have the ability to do so by enrolling into the right, unique, purposeful “peace education", that can first of all show us our true nature as “the enemy of peace", and then can give us the tools, ability to build true peace above, against our inherent nature.
