Peace in the world?

As with everything in our lives, what we want to see on the outside, is what we must cultivate on the inside! These wise words by the Chinese philosopher Lao Tze Tung are worth pondering:

If there is to be peace in the world,
There must be peace in the nations.
If there is to be peace in the nations,
There must be peace in the cities.
If there is to be peace in the cities,
There must be peace between neighbors.
If there is to be peace between neighbors,
There must be peace in the home.
If there is to be peace in the home,
There must be peace in the heart.

Lao Tzu (570-490 B.C.)
