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.).

John Ruusbroec
Surnamed the Admirable Doctor, and the Divine Doctor, undoubtedly the foremost of the Flemish mystics, b. at Ruysbroeck, near Brussels, 1293; d. at Groenendael, 2 Dec., 1381. He was blessed with a devout mother, who trained him from infancy in the ways of piety and holiness. Of his father we know nothing; John's only family name, van Ruysbroeck, is taken from his native hamlet. At the age of eleven he forsook his mother, departing without leave or warning, to place himself under the guidance and tuition of his uncle, John Hinckaert, a saintly priest and a canon of St. Gudule's, Brussels, who with a fellow-canon of like mind, Francis van Coudenberg, was following a manner of life modelled on the simplicity and fervour of Apostolic days. This uncle provided for Ruysbroeck's education with a ...

Quotes of the Day

alih always taught his disciples, 'Who knocks at the door of someone constantly, one day the door must be opened to him.' Rabia one day heard it and said, "Salih, how long will you go on preaching thus, using the future tense, saying, 'will be opened'?
Was the door ever dosed?" Salih bowed in submission to her.
