What is Peace and Nonviolence?
Peace means to be free from war....a state of serenity, harmony and calm. The absence of violence.
I understood Mahatma Ghandi to say that nonviolence refers to our natural state of compassion when violence has subsided from the heart. His grandson, Arun Ghandi states, "Nonviolence means allowing the positive within you to emerge. Be dominated by love, respect, understanding, appreciation, compassion and concerns for others rather than the self-centered and selfish, greedy, hateful, prejudiced, suspicious and aggressive attitudes that dominate our thinking."
Peace begins right here within our own mind and heart. When we create it for our own self, then we can be it for the world.
