    I am so in alignment with everything you say here, Kalpanaa. You’ve also drawn parallels to current events so well and explored the idea of peace so evocatively. Plus you quoted my idols of peace too 🙂

    I’d love to think it’s an achievable task in my lifetime, but unfortunately I don’t think I’ll ever see it. A great concept though.

    Kalpaana, a wonderfully-thought out essay. I have no argument with your arguments. Fresh in my mind and I’m sure in other’s, is the horrific suicide bombing of little children in Aleppo. ‘Give peace a chance’ for sure.
    Thanks for sharing this with WEP and the A-Z.

    Denise 🙂

  4. Sadly peace is not profitable.
    I long for the day when we realise the world is (or should be) a community. No us and them, but only us…

    Peace is such an important concept in our world that seems to have gone mad with meglomaniacs launching missiles and using chemical warfare. I always think of the bible quote “the peace of God which passes all understanding be with you now and forever” – just beautiful.

    The song Let There Be Peace On Earth was one of the first songs that I learned to play on my piano and it was also one of the first songs I learned to sing. To hear it song this morning by the many before the Pope was a highlight for my day.
    Thank you.

  11. Hi Kalpana, this is a very profound post. You have researched a lot on peace to write this article. Great to know such concepts about peace. best wishes.

    Enjoyed your essay and the paean to peace. Especially liked the bit about the Andean Aymaras, beautiful philosophy!

    The army in any democracy only follows orders though, they don’t determine policies. Being ill-prepared has cost India territory and personnel in the past.

    Best wishes,

    Thanks, Kalpanaa, for sharing such a wonderful piece on peace. Didn’t know about seven types of peace. I found that it’s easier to feel peace than to express it in words.

  14. Gwynn Rogers says:

    I LOVE the wise words you have posted here. I wish the leaders of the world would listen.

  15. What a beautiful and inspiring post! I’d not heard of the seven types of peace before, but what a powerful way to look at it.

  16. Mandy says:

    I didn’t know about the 7 different types of peace. How interesting. Thanks for sharing. 🙂

    With Love,

    Peace is most certainly not cliche. Although, sometimes the price is too steep. The sacrifices one must make to maintain peace for the sake of peace itself can be oppressive in some cases.

  18. Lovely! Well done, and yes, peace starts with the individual. But in the climb for success in business or politics it is often forgotten or trampled underfoot. Being a peacemaker is also a journey of immense sorrow!

    Thank you, Kalpana

  19. That’s a lot to think about. It did give me an idea. What if we joined a march on Washington to circle the White House and everyone stood there and smiled. Then those in front could hold ups signs, one at a time, with various quote in regard to peach. Would it make a difference? I’d like to think so.

  20. Donna L Hole says:

    A well written essay on peace. There is no profit in Peace, so I doubt we’ll be seeing world peace soon. Such a shame. You’ve expanded beautifully on these famous sentiments.

    Someday, maybe. Hopefully.

  21. A very interesting read, well thought out. I particularly like the seven types of peace, it’s something we should all try to achieve.

  22. Very nice post, specially loved the concept of seven types of peace.

  23. ANITA SABAT says:

    Peace needs intention & action.
    May there be peace.We all deserve it.
    Agree with the 7 points of Peace- that’ll surely ensure total peace!

    I feel like I should toss in some quote like, “The meek shall inherit the Earth, not the war lords.” Or a link to the old song “War” by Edwin Starr.
    Wisdom is more progressive than war.
    Great post.
