World peace is the ideal state of happiness, peace, and freedom within and among all the people and nations on the planet earth. It is a pernicious myth that attaining world peace is unattainable. That’s not true. World peace can be achieved when people give others freedom of speech and freedom of religion. It is highly essential to give rights to other people. People don’t let others live as per their wishes. Peace and tolerance can only be attained when you establish a framework in which the rights of others can flourish. Let’s make the planet earth a peaceful place for the generations to come.
Importance of world peace:
Peace is vital in everyone’s life, but unfortunately, it is something that has been eluded us for years in the world. The disagreements and conflicts in humans have resulted in wars. People are now in a deplorable physical and emotional state. As a result, there is no peace around. You might have heard the proverb “you destroy your enemies when you make peace with them.”
Everyone talks about bringing peace in the world, but no one understands that he needs to bring peace in himself first. If there is a disagreement among colleagues, siblings or friends, they might continue it on a much larger scale.
Small conflicts if not checked can spark wars and even more battles in the world. So no matter from which sphere of life you belong to you need to work hard to make earth a peaceful planet.
How can world peace be achieved?
Let’s check how you can play a significant role in bringing peace and tolerance in the world:
- Personal commitment:
You see the news of wars and people brutally killing each other on Television. Every time you hear or read such sad news you ask why people do this. To make the world peaceful, you should make a personal commitment to nonviolence. If someone disagrees with you, you do not need to fight. Accept the fact that not everyone can think alike.
- Help others:
Someone needs help don’t stop yourself from helping him/her just because you don’t know the person. It actually has become a norm these days that if someone falls, needs help, is confused or upset people act like they have not seen. If you can provide assistance, then go ahead.
- Speak up:
Speak up against prejudice and discrimination. Prejudice is one of the reasons that causes anger and then anger results in violence. Stop considering yourself superior to others. Treat everyone equally. If someone does not agree with your thoughts, do not misuse your powers to take revenge on that person. If you see any discrimination in your personal or work life then instead of keeping your mouth shut, speak up against it.
- Maintain a peaceful nature:
It is a fact that you get hurt by people. You should not take it to your heart. If someone hurts you, regard him/her as your teacher who has taught you how you can maintain a peaceful in nature. Peace is ruined when you start a circle of revenge when someone hurts your feelings.
- Promote peace through religion:
First of all, everyone must understand that no religion promotes violence. Every religion instructs us to be kind to others. No matter what religion you belong to you should take part in promoting peace through your religion. Everyone has the freedom to follow his religion so, give people the freedom of religion if you want to spread peace.
Smile whenever you meet people on the street. Say hello to them and be kind to everyone around you. Be generous with your smile and spread happiness everywhere.
