“The well-being of mankind, its peace and security, are unattainable unless and until
its unity is firmly established.”
Bahá’u’lláh, Gleanings from the Writings of Bahá’u’lláh, p. 286
Highlighting the crying need for peace, especially for our children, is this quote from OneWorld.Net’s article, “International Efforts ‘Still Failing’ Child Soldiers.“
“Existing strategies have not had the desired impact. If further progress is to be made, it must be recognized that child soldiers are not only an issue for the child rights specialists, but should be on the agendas of all those involved in conflict prevention and resolution, peace-building and development,”
In spite of the dire circumstances affecting our hearts and minds, there is a deep and lasting hope that’s much more than a pipe dream:
“The Great Peace towards which people of good will throughout the centuries have inclined their hearts, of which seers and poets for countless generations have expressed their vision, and for which from age to age the sacred scriptures of mankind have constantly held the promise, is now at long last within the reach of the nations. For the first time in history it is possible for everyone to view the entire planet, with all its myriad diversified peoples, in one perspective. World peace is not only possible but inevitable. It is the next stage in the evolution of this planet—in the words of one great thinker, “the planetization of mankind”.
“Whether peace is to be reached only after unimaginable horrors precipitated by humanity’s stubborn clinging to old patterns of behaviour, or is to be embraced now by an act of consultative will, is the choice before all who inhabit the earth. At this critical juncture when the intractable problems confronting nations have been fused into one common concern for the whole world, failure to stem the tide of conflict and disorder would be unconscionably irresponsible.”

“If the learned and worldly-wise men of this age were to allow mankind to inhale the fragrance of fellowship and love, every understanding heart would apprehend the meaning of true liberty, and discover the secret of undisturbed peace and absolute composure.”
The quotes offered here are extremely powerful. I believe that the awakening is happening and will continue to become stronger and stronger – I know that there are still a lot and I mean a lot of people tied to old conditioned patterns of action and thought, but I know that the essence of our being will eventually shine through so that “our kids” will enjoy a more evolved world in which they can experience life at its fullest!
Dr Taylor teaches us how to attain deep inner peace – easily, simply, without drugs, anytime we want it. Forgive me for doing everything I can to be sure everyone reads this book and sees this video, but I think all of us benefit and in the larger sense, if everyone reads this, our world will benefit in a very large way.
