When I am angry it is difficult to be at peace.
War is necessary, but practicing nonviolence during war is the surest way to peace.
Nonviolence practice is more difficult than being violent.
The difference for me is like putting something together is harder than taking something apart.
I believe it only takes half a mind to be violent, but a whole mind to be at peace.
Nonviolence is learnt and needs to be a lifelong practice and commitment.
I am a lifelong learner and this is one of my favorite subjects.
As a man I need to practice nonviolence for biological reasons: I believe we are all hard wired for peace.
I studied many sources, but I recommend “The Art Of Happiness in a Troubled World” by His Holiness The Dalai Lama and Howard C. Cutler, MD. And “M.K. Gandhi An Autobiography Or The Story Of My Experiments With Truth”, Translated from the original Gujarati by Mahadev Desai With an Introduction by Sunil Khilnani
And I believe all people need to practice nonviolence to become a better civilization.
