Completion brings compassion and inner peace in a child

Last evening, my 15- years-old son came to share with me about an incident which disturbed his inner space as he felt certain heaviness in his heart. This incident happened yesterday afternoon, he went for a Geography team project discussion with a couple of boys from his school. After the project meeting, the three boys decided to visit the games arcade in the shopping mall for some entertainment.

The moment one of his friends, namely Yee tried to show off his skills by taking out a special professional member card to start the game machine, my son immediately recognized it was his card which he had lost 4 months ago. Through his awakened third eye, he saw that his friend stole his card and he had to confront him. Yee immediately lied by saying it was his card as he had earned it using his playing skills. My son, with ferociousness, took the card away from him and Yee tried to snatch it away. In the struggle, my son cornered him to speak the truth! Finally, he admitted that the card belonged to my son but then came the second lie, he said that my son left it in the machine the last time they played together. My son was clear that this didn’t happen and again pushed him to speak the truth. Finally, out came the truth – Yee stole the card from my son’s wallet as they used to sit next to each other in the class. Seeing my son’s ferociousness, finally Yee apologised to my son for stealing his card. My son, after having satisfied with the truth, decided to give that card to his friend and then left him.

She asked: “Why is there no peace in the world?”

Master replied: “There is no peace in you; that is why you are looking at that part in the world. Bring peace in your heart and you will simply see that part of the world which is living in peace.”

Many of us ask for global peace but how can we experience global peace when we are still carrying so much pain within us? The truth is we are all a part of the collective consciousness. Our inability to experience peace within us is due to the pain patterns from the past hangovers. Unless we complete with these pain patterns, we can never experience inner peace. Till inner peace is experienced by more and more individuals, there can never be global peace. Fundamentally, to spread global peace, we have to help humanity to be relieved of their pain patterns.
