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
Saint Catherine of Siena
Dominican Tertiary, born at Siena, 25 March, 1347; died at Rome, 29 April, 1380. She was the youngest but one of a very large family. Her father, Giacomo di Benincasa, was a dyer; her mother, Lapa, the daughter of a local poet. They belonged to the lower middle-class faction of tradesmen and petty notaries, known as "the Party of the Twelve", which between one revolution and another ruled the Republic of Siena from 1355 to 1368. From her earliest childhood Catherine began to see visions and to practise extreme austerities. At the age of seven she consecrated her virginity to Christ; in her sixteenth year she took the habit of the Dominican Tertiaries, and renewed the life of the anchorites of the desert in a little room in her father's house. After three years of celestial visitations ...

Quotes of the Day

The sage has no fixed (personal) ideas.
He regards the people's ideas as his own.
I treat those who are good with goodness,
And I also treat those who are not good with goodness.
Thus goodness is attained .
I am honest to those who are honest,
And I am also honest to those who are not honest.
Thus honesty is attained.
