Working for peace in everyday life, how to do it?
All those who have peace wish to keep it daily, but especially to share it. For just like love, peace is multiplied by sharing it. And working for peace in everyday life is a long-term job, much easier said than done, but above all very rewarding for all. And it is this goal that makes everyone who works for peace every day among the happiest and most fulfilled beings.
But how do they manage and what can you do like them?
Help the most in need
Today, humanitarian aid is an essential development tool for poor and vulnerable communities. And helping others on a daily basis is a more than effective way to work for peace, just as Prem Rawat does.
By using your free time volunteering to help others, there are only benefits to you, to others, and to peace. If sometimes you have trouble making ends meet, know that there are often other whose situation is worse than yours. Volunteering can help fill the gap with this reality, and help the poor, with a simple smile, a hot meal, or an attentive ear.
Whether for peace, the poor, or education, volunteering will make you feel useful in your community, and for the cause you have chosen to defend. If you lack confidence in yourself, volunteering will also boost your self-esteem in the best conditions.
Fighting the inequalities of everyday life
Inequalities between gender, religion and skin color are always present in the daily lives of most people. At work, in the streets and even in some public institutions, inequality is one of the main undermining factors for peace. It therefore makes sense that fighting it on a daily basis is a work for peace. For that you need to:
- Denounce any form of inequality related to gender, ethnicity, and religion that you experience or witness around you. Because the practice of racism on all kinds f discrimination is all punished by the law.
- Educate mates, friends and family about the respect for each person, their choice of life, their work, their origins or their sexual orientation.
- Talk about inequalities around you. Inequalities and racism are often taboo themes in society. However, we must talk about it to fight it. As Prem Rawat for example, we must dare to speak to fight inequalities. Keeping silent is like accepting and being accomplices. Do not be afraid of judgments and share your experience to raise awareness around you.
Give away selflessly
Sometimes simple gestures in everyday life bring peace: listening to a friend who needs advice, or taking a weekend to drive an elderly loved one to visit his children, for example. By contributing to the peace of others, you will be able to help others, but above all to spread the message of peace that everyone must contribute to the peace of others.
It can start with your loved ones or with your family and then continue to the world. Giving of one's self can be difficult at first because you have to sacrifice your time, but stay focused on the goal as it works hard for peace.
