Conversations with Humanity

In one of his latest books, “The Storm before the Calm”, Neale Walsch describes what he believes is happening in 2012 and the new world we could be creating.  He suggests we start a <Conversation with Humanity> in order to decide what this new world will look like.  To start this conversation, he asks some questions,  the first of which was answered by members of a discussion group who happens to be incarcerated at this time. 

The first question is this:  “How is it possible that 6.9 billion people can all claim to want the same thing (peace, security, opportunity, prosperity, happiness, and love) and be singularly unable to get it?”

Here are some of the answers this group gave.  Please join in this conversation.

  Question One-Anwer Three

I think that most people of the world expect their individual peace, security, love, happiness, etc. to be provided for them by sources outside of themselves, such as governments and other individuals.  Because those people fail to realize that the peace, security, love, happiness, etc, must first come from within, they are unable to truly have such things.  And because I am speaking of the majority of the world, the majority’s expectations re-infect new generations creating a vicious cycle.  If every individual were to realize that peace, security, love, happiness, etc. must first come from within, so that human and moral conscience is their guide, rather than outside “parental” life commandments (laws), then their peace, security, love, happiness, etc. would come naturally, as that would be the incidental result, which would consequently spread into future generations, for each generation is, naturally, the teacher and/or inspiration of the next.
