Why peace is so important for all, now?
Because, as the Indian mystic Sufi Inayat Khan said, "All things pertaining to spiritual progress in life depend upon peace".
These wise words are particularly timely now, because we are experiencing a shift in universal consciousness as a prelude to a new era of higher vibrations for all. And promoting peace goes hand in hand with this shift. One feeds the other.
We are marching towards more cooperative models of interaction in our societies. This implies peace, since peace essentially means understanding, respect, and freedom for everyone to express their uniqueness, in a world of plenty and possibilities for all.
Peace is the ideal setting for humanity to evolve in a sustainable manner, in alignment with the laws of the universe and in respectful coexistence with the environment and mother Earth.
The human race tends to think always in terms of progress. But humanity cannot have real progress without peace. Peace entails sustainable development. Sustainable development is the one "that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs" (as defined by the Brundtland Report about Sustainability by the World Commission on Environment and Development in 1987).
So how can you live the way of peace?
As Deepak Chopra says, quoting the ancient Vedic texts: “You will know when you are living the way of peace when three things are present: Seva: Your actions harm no one and benefit everyone. Simran: You remember your true nature and your purpose for being here. Satsang: You belong in the community of peace and wisdom”.
We may have to figure out the best specific ways for each of us to carry out this peaceful way of living in our personal experiences. As an inspirational example, the famous quote by the American Indian leader Vine Deloria: “Only tribes will survive”, is being interpreted now as a reminder that more cooperative models of interaction in our societies may involve a new communitarian approach that also respects nature, the environment and spiritual wisdom.
As Gregory Bateson once said, "The major problems in the world are the result of the difference between how nature works and the way people think".
We owe peace to the world, to people, to nature and to future generations. But we also owe peace to ourselves. Your inner peace is of utmost importance for the global vibrations because, as numerologist Hans Decoz says, "in a universe of infinite dimensions, every point is the absolute center. You are such a point".

As your inner peace grows, you will feel more in communion with the universe. And your natural positive attitudes and EXPERIENCES will flow. As humanity needs peace to develop in a sustainable manner, you too need peace for your personal development to take place.
Ludwig van Beethoven said: "You have to listen to the voice speaking inside of you. Silence is the key...when that silence envelops you, then your soul can sing".
In other words, you need peace, quietness and silence in order to hear your own soul. And you need to hear your own soul to know where you are going and how you are going to get there in unequivocal terms. Your soul would not lie to you. It is your own source and essence that is aligned with the universe.
This is why you own peace to yourself. Because it will allow you to get directions from your own divine source. This will have a positive impact in your experiences, in your relationships and, since you will be vibrating at a higher level, your energy will have a positive influence on the highest good of all, too.
