Ten Points to Remember

for those Who Work for Peace and Justice

 

 

  1. Keep in mind your essential truths. Remember to explore constructive engagement and understand the forces of destructive engagement. Remember that all suffer in conflict, physically, emotionally or both, soldiers or civilians, innocent or guilty, babies or the elderly.

  2. Remember to keep the spirits up so that empowerment takes priority and not despair. Remember to love others and delight in good humour. There is still much to celebrate about life.

  3. Remember that all media reports of conflict are a version of events. It is the skilful resolution of suffering that matters.

  4. Try not get caught up in any blame, anger, and hate towards those who take an utterly different view. There is far too much negativity in the world already. Blame is the first step to the condoning of violence and war.

  5. Remember that all significant movements for major change started with small groups of thoughtful people meeting together to campaign. Stay committed. Remember to reflect on issues frequently and read in depth books to be well informed on your subject.

  6. We must walk our talk and talk our walk as much as possible in our own lives, family friends, community and organisations.

  7. Let us develop the power to make change and the profound significance of realising that everybody on earth is inter-connected. Let us see people not the labels employed to described them.

  8. Remember to mindfully breathe in and out under pressure. Don't give others power by being afraid of them.

  9. Keep in regular contact with like-minded people. We give strength to each other.

  10. Truth expresses itself as authentic and dedicated action. It cuts through the harmful and breaks with the painful past. There is one ethic – to stay with the power of Truth.Mindfulness
