Why Prayers, Meditations, Wishes, and Any Such Don’t Help to Establish a Lasting Peace in the World.

February 28, 2014

It is a safe assumption that ever since humans started experiencing the horrors of warfare, they also started to wish to live in peace that would not end with a war again.

Humans in great numbers have been wishing, praying, meditating for peace since time immemorial, but, so far, with no lasting results. Why should this be so?

The answer might be that the very reason that wars always come back is precisely because we do want to live in peace!–we don’t experience a lasting peace, because our ideas of what peace should be differ from each other so greatly, that we go to war to settle our differences again and over again.

A lasting world peace is possible, of course–it is within human capabilities to effect this–but since our ideas of what such a peace should look like are so diverse, we have to learn how to resolve our differences peacefully, instead of ultimately choosing war every time we feel the desire for peace.

This is what I feel should be done:
All of us who pray, meditate, wish, and etc., for a lasting peace in the world have to get together one way or another, and come up with one unified design of a world we would like to live in. A design in which it would be possible to see how we all are to live together in one world in as small detail as possible. Differences that normally would get resolved in real life with often damaging results would be resolved harmlessly in a model during the process of hammering out of a design in which all of us would find an optimal place in.
More on how this could be done is presented at ModelEarthhttp://www.ModelEarth.Org .

The idea on how to create a lasting Peace in the world is also presented in a different form at: Designing a Lasting Peacehttp://www.ModelEarth.Org/peace.html .

O Bodhisattvas!

December 29, 2013

Please help!

One thing in every Bodhisattva’s practice these days stands out: no matter how hard we practice, so that all beings–all beings without an exception–benefit, the conditions for life in this world continue to deteriorate at ever increasing pace.

What can be going wrong? Why isn’t the quality of life for all beings here and now improving?

The reason that things in this world generally are going from bad to worse is that we don’t have a clear idea, a clear thought in our minds of how should all life in this world be accommodated optimally, so that each being exists in harmony with all others.

Or, perhaps, we, individually, do have ideas of what the ideal state of this world should be, but not a single one of our ideas is identical with the ideas of others, and we might not even be aware of this, since there is no proper way to compare our ideas that we might have on the subject with each other, and therefore we all direct our efforts towards sometimes even fundamentally divergent objectives, and, in the end, due to our working towards different objectives (because there is no clearly defined idea of what this world should be like at its optimum), there is no chance for conditions for all life here and now to become optimal ever.

What needs to be done is that we all agree (by what-so-ever expedient and skillful means) on what actually the optimal conditions for all life on Earth should be. Then, while we work towards the same, by all of us agreed upon goal, not anymore sorting out our differences in real life (which is very costly in time, resources, and lives), we stand a much better chance of seeing the tide turning, and seeing the conditions for all life on Earth starting, actually, improving.

That all beings (with no exception) benefit optimally fully here and now is very important, because here and now is forever in all three times and all directions of space. If all beings don’t benefit by our actions here and now, they never will. Here and now is all we have ever. All beings have to benefit fully here and now!

Bodhisattvas! What kind of a world should the Earth be to accommodate all life optimally? How shall we unify, harmonize all our individual ideas about what this world should be like ideally so that we all work towards one clearly defined objective?

Some ideas how this could be done are presented at http://www.ModelEarth.Org .

May all differences, all controversies, all conflicts, and all complaints that there are in this world among all beings be resolved peacefully without any delays! May all these be prevented from ever arising by using what-so-ever expedient, skillful, effective, appropriate, and wholesome means! May this come to pass by the power of all true Bodhisattvas ever merit!

!OmManiPadmeHum!

May all beings, without an exception, benefit to the utmost by this action in all ways possible, spiritually and materially alike, starting with all beings that there are here and now.

May humans become fully and truly forever transparently sustainable for their own good and for the benefit of all beings!
