    The Deeper War On Terror Lies Within

    Yesterday we heard from a very dear friend in Tokyo. Her apartment was broken into Saturday night. Three men entered through the window, they tied her up with duct tape and ransaked the apartment, looking for money or drugs. They cut open and ripped apart every possession she had...

    From "Being Peace"

    I just read this, this morning, and thought it would be a fitting follow up to MakingPeace's story...  "Many of us worry about the world situation.  We don't know when the bombs will explode.  We feel that we are on the edge of time.  As individuals, we...

    What Would the World Be Like If We Valued Wisdom More?

    Recently I've been talking with various people about some of the world's problems, and it seems to me like humans are complete idiots sometimes. (Note: I include myself in that assessment!). We do the most foolish self-destructive things, and the future for our children and all...
