I came across an interesting theory on how to achieve world peace: Be sexually fulfilled. And part of me thinks there is some truth to this. If you are part of loving and fulfilling relationships, whether they are of a sexual nature or not, I would imagine you would have no desire to jepordise your happiness, the happiness of your loved ones or the happiness of others in similar situations. that's what gets me. What could be more important than love? I imagine it would take a lot more energy to be in a state of conflict with others than it would be to focus on your life and the lives of your loved ones.
We will never get there as long as man believes the only way to solve our differences with another is to kill, maim, destroy and blow up the people and the posessions of those who disagree with us. Until so called "civilised" can come up with a way of resolving our differences without shedding blood there will never be peace. And that makes me incredibly sad.
Someone very wise and who I respect a lot once told me that the reason why there is so much violence in the world is because we hate others MORE than we love our close ones. I think there is value in this observation. If our love for our close ones is so large that there is no room to hate, we will stop meddling into other peoples' affairs. Perhaps there is a secret key to world peace in this statement.
