has broken out again in the Middle East. The wartime casualties, desperation,
hatred, homeless refugees and heart-wrenching scenes that appear constantly
in the media strongly awaken our yearning for peace. At this moment,
one cannot help wondering: "Why do human beings make war? What
can we do to bring true peace to the world?" During the Kosovo
War in 1999, people in troubled Europe asked the same questions to Supreme
Master Ching Hai, Who compassionately offered answers in Her lectures.
These words of wisdom have been included in the book God's Direct
Contact - The Way to Reach Peace. The following are some wonderful
excerpts from the book, in which a true Messenger of God expounds on
the root cause of war and conveys to humanity God's message of Peace.
Come from Warlike Negativity
Why is there war in the world? And what can we do to stop war?
War exists because we have created some kind of warlike energy on
this planet. Every time we hate, every time we want to kill, every time
we don't love one another like God loves us, we create a warlike energy.
And when enough of this energy sticks together, it materializes into
envy, and all these kinds of negative feelings have energy, just like
love has energy. When someone loves you or when you're in love with
one another, you feel very blissful and happy. Even though you can't
touch this love and you can't explain it, you know it's there. You bathe
in this love, and you feel exalted.
when we hate one another, we feel very uncomfortable. We even feel sickened
sometimes because of it. Hatred, jealousy, possessiveness and ignorance
- all of these will make war at any time. That's why we have to take
care of what we think, what we do, and what we want in our daily lives.
is the only solution to all kinds of trouble in this world. God's love
is the only medicine for all kinds of disease on this planet.
