Hello Anthony- I think you are hurting yourself unnecessarily with this line of thought Anthony. I'm sorry for that, I don't like to see people suffer.
Again, a look into history will show you that there is NOTHING that can ensure peace. Lots and lots of things have been tried through the ages and peace has never come. It is very ironic, people are willing to go to war, to kill and be killed over whose "morality" is the "right" one. It's a hard pill to swallow, I know, but the plain truth is that peace isn't the nature of most human beings. Or most human beings cannot see their buddha-nature. The only thing left is to create a peaceful place within yourself. There are many ways to do that, zazen, other forms of meditation, certain therapies, etc. I don't think anyone can find peace in the world without finding it within themselves first.

I have trouble accepting 'just it'. Or Buddha nature, which not everybody follows. You can say everybody has Buddha nature, but when it comes to performance, the opposite is frequently true. > > Regards, > Anthony ------------------------------------ Current Book Discussion: any Zen book that you recently have read or are reading!
