May all beings be happy.

May all beings be happy. May all beings be peaceful.

A call for true understanding and compassion between all human beings.

Peace is what every individual wishes to have at every moment. When suffering in one way or another comes to the mind it takes away the serenity of the individual and excites him/her to take all kinds of wrong action. However peace if it wasn’t so hard to acquire in our age today is what every individual would want for him or herself. I call you, the reader of this text, to attend to this clean desire of every human being and try to be equanimous with your judgments first and foremost.

The past couple of years have brought a lot of tension between people in our country. In what we used to call our shared heritage a ton of negativity has lurked in and taken all willingness to stop the suffering. One side seems to be winning temporarily but we all know that the victory of one side is only heralding the buried grudge in the other which will grow and take over in another time. From this common understanding I would like to call your attention into that pure desire that every  individual has for peace. If peace was imparted into everyone’s consciousness how loving a person would be and how he or she strives to replicate the peace on others too. However when there is no chance of peace in a person’s consciousness the person uses all power to replicate its own misery.

The only concern of a person who has been neglected and not listened to either by parents or society is to make others understand how his or her pain feels and does not understand how it has to be handled therefore strives to show his or her own suffering in any way possible. All the chaos and the chattering seems to be about land or ethnicity or something else but ultimately it’s about “listen to me, I am not feeling well inside myself”.

Where should we cut short this endless exchange of suffering and bring back sanity to this world. The only place to do that is inside myself. Let’s breathe and release the tension inside ourselves and start looking at our fellow brothers and sisters for exactly how they are. If someone is suffering and causing more suffering to others, let’s not hurry to point our fingers on him or her but make our ears wider and listen carefully to see if we can compassionately listen to that person until the end. Yes we have received our share of suffering, we have been hurt. But my pain, if I try to treat it with anger, vengeance and blaming will only worsen the situation.

May all beings be happy, may all beings come out of suffering. May peace dawn upon all things living and nonliving.
