We, as human beings have the ability to change. It is difficult to do this and can take a tremendous amount of effort. One must be at peace within one's self in order to relate peace to others.
I agree that it is difficult to give of what one has not got. That is, it is difficult to impart peace when one does not have it.
However, one may have had peace before, and although not at peace at the present moment, one can still help others achieve that state.
This could also assist the giver to recover the peaceful state for him/her self as well.
That is correct. We do not always feel at peace all the time yet we can seek it. Thank you for your response.
I believe that when one works towards helping others attain peace & contentment, it flows back to the giver. Maybe not there and then, but it will inevitably bless the giver.
That is why peace needs many of us to hug it close, and if there are enough people who live in peace and spread it around them, then the world will inevitably become peaceful.
The peace I speak of is not the fluttery kind of happiness that we get when excited about something that we like, but the peace wihin that can withstand problems, unfair tactics by others, The ugly bits of life may make me sad at times, even make me cry uncontrollably. And I might get angry and want to hit back. But when I have calmed down some, then I can sit and reflect and realise that I am fortunate in so many ways, that I know better than to let one event affect me and my attitude to life. I don't want to be an angry, or envious, or mean person, and I won't let anyone else make me like that.
So I sit and work on pushing the nasty event out of my mind, and think of something I can do for someone else to wash away the bitter feeling - and it works!

How does a person form their belief systems in the first place? Why are people unwilling to change their beliefs when there is good reason their beliefs are false ie "I still believe anyway".Do belief systems rule our lives?

Why do those that follow pseudo-simetic beliefs, support the prolifferation of stupidity? They etify eachother and encourage misinformation, chalking reality up to caveman belief systems and shun reality as being the words of false prophets. And they call us crazy and evil, simply for not following...

What does the term 'After-life' mean to you?Is it a literal life after death, or maybe a new life on this earth, or is it just a made-up, fear-based idea that people use to make each other do good?

I normally pay no attention to religious discussions. Partially because people tend to loose their minds when the "R" word is mentioned. However, due to recent attention from the media on religious people who make fools of themselves by way of ridiculously over zealous beliefs that make...

I mean, what does it accomplish? I see so many different "belief" systems being argued and discussed on these pages. I haven't yet seen a single hardcore Christian being persuaded towards non-belief by an equally hardcore Atheist - or vice-versa. I'm not saying that it is idiotic to try...
