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
Ibn 'Arabi
Ibn 'Arabi was born in Murcia in Spain, and his family moved to Seville when he was eight. He experienced an extraordinary mystical "unveiling" (kashf) or "opening" (fotuh) at about the age of fifteen; this is mentioned in his famous account of his meeting with Averroes (Addas, pp. 53-58; Chittick, 1989, pp. xiii-xiv). Only after this original divine "attraction" (jadhba) did he begin disciplined Sufi practice (soluk), perhaps at the age of twenty (Addas, p. 53; Chittick, 1989, pp. 383-84). Ibn 'Arabi studied the traditional sciences, Hadith in particular, with many masters; he mentions about ninety of these in an autobiographical note (Badawi). In 597/1200 he left Spain for good, with the intention of making the hajj.

Quotes of the Day

ow there are certain people who turn from things out of love, but who still have great regard for what they have left. But those who understand in truth that even when they have given themselves up and have abandoned all things, this is still absolutely nothing -- those who live in this way, truly possess all things.

Visitors Quotes of the Day
alking stick.

I was sitting alone on a bench in the park
Waiting for the summer skies to go dark.
My soul was hanging between the trees and the stars
As my heart was beating steadily and fast.


I watched a child play with a dog
A couple rolling in the grass,
An old woman knitting and talking to God
A man dwelling over his past.

Humans gathered in a big garden
Strangers moving on surreal ground,
Each with his story, his home, his name
All so different yet all the same.

An old granddad suddenly appeared
Asked me whether he could sit next to me,
And as he sat and overcame his fear
I smiled feeling safe, free to be me.
