10 Steps to World Peace
World peace. It’s such a big topic that most people chastise its conceivability. “How,” they ask, “can I possibly contribute to it and how can we possibly achieve it?”
There is an anonymous story of a man who came upon a meditating sage. The sage looked so peaceful and serene that the man had to know his secret. After a brief conversation, the man said to the sage, “I wish I had your faith so that I could live as you do.”
The old sage smiled and said, “Ah, if you lived as I live, you would have my faith.”
