From Ceaseless Pursuits to Fruitful Quest: Achieving Perfect Peace
The human being is independent of body, mind complex. There is no color, caste, religion, culture and nationality. Such a pure being capable of transcending all these is truly a natural, open, dynamic and unlimited system which can adapt to change. Without these differences one is truly freed from all the delusion. Without this delusion one is naturally a conflict-free, peaceful, blissful being. This, is ones own true nature; But unfortunately the mind is excited in pursuing different color, caste, religion culture and nationality. It localizes and confines to a body, time, space and situation. The mind in excitement created and pursued the differences to the extent that it cannot cope with the differences and has got into a delusion. These differences have made the human being limited and insecure. The outcome of this insecurity is anxiety, worry, fear, anger, depression, confusion and conflict within and outside bringing eventual destruction. To protect oneself from the insecurity the human being has desperately been working on weapons of mass destruction in the name of security, defense, and peace and to root out terrorism. Mankind has resorted to war, killing and bloodshed for trivial gains. One is failing to realize that by destroying the environment, one has to live in the disturbed environment. A disturbed being is desperately searching for peace in the world outside. He runs from pillar to post in search of a solution to these in the world outside in vain. Various management proposals are mooted to bridge these differences and conflict. Alas, they can only offer temporary succor, not solutions. Instead of struggling in the world outside, we need to retreat into our own true being to enjoy freedom unlimited and perfect peace.
