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 Twelve

by CAH

As far as my answer to goes, the reason that the 6.9 billion people on this Earth have such a hard time and cannot achieve total, complete peace is because (I believe) of two things:  the first is a lack of focus on the things that matter like peace.  You cannot promote peace with other people other races, cultures, or nations, if you do not have peace within yourself.  Also, God, belief in God, plays a very important, if not the most important, part in achieving real, lasting peace.  When you do not believe in God, an all powerful omnipotent Being then it is easier to believe that real and lasting peace, change, can never happen.  So, to me, it comes down to focus and belief in God as well as faith in oneself as well as in one’s fellow man.
