“How Do We Achieve World Peace?”

I. “My religion is I take personal responsibility for my own thoughts, feelings, speech, writing and actions despite external situations or people.”

II. “I will not repay negativity for negativity.”

III. “What the other person does is a reflection of them. What I do is a reflection of me.” LightSun

Quote:
“If you want to awaken all of humanity, then awaken all of yourself. If you want to eliminate the suffering in the world, then eliminate all that is dark and negative in yourself. Truly, the greatest gift you have to give is that of your own self-transformation.” Lao Tzu

I. “My religion is I take personal responsibility for my own thoughts, feelings, speech, writing and actions despite external situations or people.”

II. “I will not repay negativity for negativity. Their speech, writing and actions are a reflection of them. If negative, it is their own thought distortions that they are unknowingly projecting unto me.

I will remain true to myself. I will be positive yet too realistic. I will be a voice for social Justice but I will stick to objective fact, reason, and rational thought.

I will not lose my head to emotional reasoning and pollute reality with my own unfinished business, unresolved conflicts, emotional baggage and unhealed psychic wound.

III. I acknowledge the truth that we are a projective species. I will take responsibility for my own state of mind.

IV. I acknowledge that if I have a negative emotion, then I am triggered. I will acknowledge that if I have a negative emotion, whatever the situation may be, that I am under the influence of thought distortions.

I will acknowledge the fact that in every negative emotion there are distortions of thought. The only amendment is if I am in a flight or flight scenario or if I am in extreme physical pain.

V.I will not succumb to triggers and react. Rather I will be mindful, correct my thought distortions and deal with the situation rationally.” LightSun

P.S. “I will not repay negativity for negativity. Another persons response is their reality. If they are negative then they are triggers and are projecting unconsciously unto me unfairly.

They are unknowingly projecting their own subjective opinions and it’s veiled with cognitive thought distortions

that hide their own unfinished business, unresolved conflict, emotional baggage and unhealed psychic wound. If they are cogent and express objective fact then I will dialogue with them.” LightSun

“Are you truly open minded, tolerant and respectful of others with dissimilar beliefs? Do you follow these precepts?

1. “Judge not sayeth the lord for judgment is mine.” “The measure you give is the measure you get.” Do you use labels, name calling and pejoratives with someone you disagree with? If you use negative subjective language on others, you are judging.

2. Do you truly turn the cheek? Do you argue when insulted? Or do you merely know this verse yet don’t practice it?

3. Jesus said to love thy neighbor. Personally this is too difficult. Do you at least keep a cool level objective head? Irregardless of the person even if you find them distasteful do you, yourself talk in a respectful manner?

4. Jesus said, “Blessed are the meek and the blessed are the peacemakers.” It is said that if one achieves inner peace, no one can rock your boat.

If triggered do you succumb to negative subjective language? Do you engage with put downs, denigrating language, and angry argumentative speech?

5. It’s well and fine to state your position on what you believe in.

Would people agree or disagree with the following philosophy? If someone states a dissimilar belief accept it and don’t argue. Are you able to let go?

Moreover you are being dogmatic and not allowing another to believe or not believe as they desire. If a person falls into a trap of trying to argue with a person in order to change their beliefs, it is an aspect of ego.

If you argue it is a pointless waste of time. It is a manifestation and reflection of psychological, emotional, and spiritual immaturity on your part

6. If you find yourself saying no to any of these questions you are not walking the talk nor practicing what you preach. Whether you are a Christian or have another belief, these are excellent guides to follow.

There are of course good Christians who at least put their best foot forward and try best as they are able to follow these.

There are too many lip servers who say they are Christian. They go to church and think that’s all they have to do to be saved. There are many that don’t put in the effort to follow Jesus example. In scripture Jesus will say, “I never knew you.

The reason I am making this post is that according to Professor Dyson 90% of people are religious. I scroll up and down Facebook and see people blasting each other with their own position.

7. Jesus said, “Why do you see the speck in your neighbors eye, but do not see the log in your own eye?”

This is the simple key to world peace. Everybody stay responsible for your own life, thoughts and feelings. When I see a religious, secular or new age quote which labels other people, it amounts to an is verses them approach.

8. I. My religion is I take personal responsibility for my own thoughts, feelings, speech, writing and actions despite external situations or people.”

II. “I will not repay negativity for negativity. Their speech, writing and actions are a reflection of them. If negative, it is their own thought distortions that they are unknowingly projecting unto me.

What I’ve just shared is the key to world peace. If you can’t even just take self responsibility for your self but condemn others, then you are part of the problem.

Only it is not a secret. It’s been shared by every religious and secular philosophers since the beginning of recorded history. I’ve just synthesized it. This is the blueprint to actually having world peace.

That sounds high and mighty, no it’s not. It is simple really, just start following what you purport to believe in and don’t practice. The saying is, “I can’t hear you because your actions are so loud.” LightSun

If only more people would follow this more closely. I know they are just ideals, and most of us will fall short. Too often, the human reflex is to blame rather than to see our own role in a problem and try to find a remedy or improvement.

I’ve written a lot on this subject on Facebook. I can’t stand hypocrisy. I have said learning all the religious as well secular quotes will not make you wise.

When push comes to shove, people when triggered will revert to their primitive base emotional nature., One can not teach wisdom.

@Coriolis my wife and I come from a counseling field. I greatly admire Carl Jung. He was a very insightful man. Many of his insightful wisdoms I have discovered myself.

I don’t believe society will evolve until we learn the dynamics of the unconscious. Carl. Jung said that until we make the unconscious conscious, we will never evolve.

Plato too with his philosopher kings (An. archaic term) become lovers of wisdom, society will not evolve and move forward.,

Our technology has grown. We really have not evolved psychologically, emotionally, or spiritually. I can’t substantiate this, what I am about to share.

This. Is metaphorical. We seem to have values that have been appeared to us in countless times and cultures.

When I have an insight I will not drink, eat or go the bathroom until that insight has been fleshed out. When I write, I reach a mental plateau. I feel a heightened state of consciousness and am in an endorphin ‘Flow’ state.

I’ve written when I seek to gain an insight, I go down into the depths of an Ocean of consciousness. I search for ever illusive truths.

When I grasp an insight I rise from the depths of my unconscious to the surface. I then share my insights with my Soul Brothers and Soul Sisters.

Coriolis as I’ve grown with the gift of insight, my perception of reality has grown in depth and breadth of understanding of myself, others and the world we live in.

Nobody becomes fully enlightened. However with my insights I have added missing pieces of the puzzle, mosaic or painting becoming more clear.
I know the dynamics of the unconscious.

Be well, Coriolis.

“How are 1, Triggers 2. Cognitive Dissonance 3. Cognitive Distortions 4. Projections 5. Judgment and possibly 6. Arguments all interrelated?

I want to stress the importance of this. Understanding these dynamics can help people from falling into a pit led by their emotions.

Remember if you experience a negative emotion because what I have said or anyone else for that matter, you are caught in a cycle.

These principles are from is both CBT (Cognitive Behavior Therapy) and REBT (Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy).

If I experience a negative emotion, there are cognitive distortions or irrational beliefs in your thought process.

The only amendments would be:

I. if I am in great physical pain
2. I am in a fight or flight scenario.
3. I find someone so anti-ethical to all I stand for.

For me an example would be Donald Trump. He offends me. It is important though that I not act on it or allow him to get under my skin. Rather deal with him in a rational and objective way. Don’t vote for him, simple.”

Quotation:
“If you want to awaken all of humanity, then awaken all of yourself. If you want to eliminate the suffering in the world, then eliminate all that is dark and negative in yourself. Truly, the greatest gift you have to give is that of your own self-transformation.” Lao Tzu

If you want peace in the world i vow:

I. I am responsible for my own thoughts, feelings, speech, writing and actions irregardless of the situation or the person.

II. I will not repay negative energy with more negative energy. I will take the high road. I will walk the path least trodden upon because it is difficult.

III. How I act is a reflection of me. How they act is a reflection of them.” LightSun
