THE ONLY HOPE WE HAVE FOR WORLD PEACE is recognizing the essence of ourselves as
(1) the source of personal happiness and peace within ourselves and
(2) resolution of conflicts between ourselves, individual nations and the world.
Two mortal enemies face to face glaring at each other with vitriol and hate.
Their thoughts fly out of control as they sport a plastic smile and feign affection.
A successfully carried out missile attack upon the other would titillate either more.
And yet, at their innermost core they’re in love with each other.
It’s in there. Simultaneously. As they stare, looking for the other’s undoing. Exists the greatest tenderness and heartfelt loving-kindness ready to explode!
But they’re both grossly unaware.
These enemies hold the safety of the world in their grasp.
The professors, philosophers, psychologists and soothsayers on both sides study and advise, advise and study.
But alas it never occurs to anyone to look within.
Not merely to the outer reaches of their hearts
But deep enough to approach the place where awareness resides.
You think you know what awareness entails, but you don’t.
It’s not another mentalism, with a nod from a sleepy heart.
It’s that space between two side-by-side thoughts,
The world leader at his most private, intimate knowing
Not the thoughts he thinks he holds but the holder himself
Conscious of who or what it is that is thinking his thoughts.
Everyone yearns for one thing only … in a word … happiness.
Enemy A wants it and Enemy B does as well.
But they’re both going in the wrong direction to find it.
They reach out, out and farther out to no avail, not knowing
THEY SHARE THE SELFSAME BE-ING.
They’re madly in love with each other without the slightest inkling
In the SO-CALLED here and now!
