A Pathway to Peace...

With today's globalisation, communities around the world are having deeper and stronger relation. But if globalisation has brought strong economic and touristic exchange, cultural dialogue has been left behind. Communities are therefore steeping themself on their own values to preserve their cultural identity leading in some extreme case to rejection and violence.

How could one maintain peace with this globalisation process?
Let listen to the wise of old:

Peace comes within the souls of men, when they realize their oneness with the Universe, when they realize it is really everywhere... it is within each one of us....

 

Black Elk, Native Americans


Vacuity, tranquillity, mellowness, quietness, and taking no action characterize the things of the universe at peace and represent the ultimate of Tao and virtue. Therefore rulers and sages abide in them.

 

Zhuangzi, Daoism




A man who is averse from harming
even the wind knows
the sorrow of all things living (…).
Those whose minds are at peace
and who are free from passions
do not desire to live
[at the expense of others].

 

Acaranga Sutra, Hinduism


Two paths seem to lead to peace. Two paths that are highly depending on each other:
· Inner peace: one at peace will not arm other
· Worldly peace: Knowing the other's values will replace fear (of the others) by respect and therefore help promoting peace.

Onelittleangel project aims at working on these two aspects by offering an area of cultural, religious and philosophical dialogue and understanding on the net about man's eternal quest (human nature, wisdom, paths to Inner Peace, etc.).

Biography of the Day
William Blake
English poet and artist, b. London. Although he exerted a great influence on English romanticism, Blake defies characterization by school, movement, or even period. At the same time no poet has been more sensitive or responsive to the realities of the human condition and of his time. 1 Early Life and Work Blake’s father, a prosperous hosier, encouraged young Blake’s artistic tastes and sent him to drawing school. At 14 he was apprenticed to James Basire, an engraver, with whom he stayed until 1778. After attending the Royal Academy, where he rebelled against the school’s stifling atmosphere, he set up as an engraver. In 1782 he married Catherine Boucher, whom he taught to read, write, and draw. She became his inseparable companion, assisting him in nearly all his work. 2 Blake’s ...

Quotes of the Day

This is love-to fly upward
toward the endless heavens.
To rend a hundred veils at every moment.
At the first breath, to give up life;
At the final step, to go without feet.
To see the world as a dream
and not as it appears.
