Creating Peace

I was asked today, what I believe gets in the way of peace.

Here is my answer:

Thoughts. As I am becoming more and more aware of the power of our thoughts, I am also more aware of the responsibility this power comes with. By thinking in a default way, people have created war and destruction in their lives, and the lives of others, who by default are interested in peace, but are unaware how to achieve peace.
One can not stop a war, by fighting a war, but by promoting peace.
One can not end world hunger, by fighting world hunger, but by sharing what we have.
It is every one's individual choice, and the thought that we lack, the thought, that there is not enough, if we stop fighting, is what keeps people fighting.
There is enough, if we let abundance flow, all of us. The more we become at peace with the power within us, the more peaceful our surroundings will be. If we look for the alternative, the togetherness, we will find it. We have the power to think, to create, to embrace.
Each one of us.
The need to control only exists in people, because of the fear to not have. War, religion, fights are an extension of that fear.

Peace and Love
