Promote Peace and Prosper

… Every human being has the right to peace, and the experience of peace is an achievable goal.

When individuals value and understand peace they enjoy better lives.

When nations value and promote peace, they truly prosper

Peace Comes from the Heart

… It is in the minds of men that wars are created.
It is from the hearts of human beings that peace will be created.

If every individual were to value and feel at peace with themselves there would be no wars.

There is something essentially good in every human being, when we find it, nurture it and live consciously, peace becomes a reality …

Peace is a Fundamental Experience

… Some say peace is the absence of war; some say peace is when you are free from all the problems of the world.

Peace is more than political peace.

Peace is a fundamental experience of existence within every single human being …
