“Heed the injustices of the events in the world around you as you watch the news, read the paper, listen to all that is said of the goings on around you. Contemplate this for a moment. Reflect on how this makes you feel, and how you have felt in the past about such news.
“Now I ask you to look deeper inside yourself, to know that these worries of the world’s struggles are also your own struggles, simply because these same wars, these same struggles, go on inside you, daily. They are simply struggles of a different nature as your mind argues with your heart. The mind constantly goes to battle and conducts war against the true wants and desires of the heart. You fight against yourself, just as the world fights against itself.
“When you think of world peace, how calming and wonderful that would be, know too, that you can have this peace within when you stop the raging war against yourself. There is a great need to accept and understand that the inner battle is only prolonged when you continue to dislike or even hate yourself for all your perceived faults.
Know that there are no faults within you. There is a purpose to everything within your experiences; that you be continuously guided to find the truth within, to the path that is your journey -- one of constant pleasure, not of pain.
