Global Peace on the Move 6

Aya

"I would like to say to the world to start with themselves. If you want to be happy, if you want to make people happy, be happy yourself. If you want to forgive people, forgive yourself first. Don’t blame people for things but look at your mistakes first. So inner peace means that it starts with you. Once you make yourself a better person, you can make the world better."

Suha

"Truly, I want everyone to have meditation, to close their eyes. Because when I tried meditation, inner peace and inner balance, I felt that I wanted to create an interest in the community and the people around me. Having meditation as a tool to achieve stillness, if you are able to comprehend it, it will make you see things differently."

Behaylu

"I got a lot of things like basic meditation skills, self-development and discipline in myself. Especially the five acts of discipline which potentially transformed my life. Before I had no time for myself, I didn't meditate but when I started the 42 day self-development program I started to give myself at least 30 min a day for myself, my interaction with people has developed and I now have smooth interactions with people."

Udochukwu

"I learned so many good things and some good habits. Actually I am usually a quick tempered person. I learned that it is always good to tolerate some people and tolerate any other actions and always try to see something good from every criticism or acts against you."

Andreea

"When I went back I had to meet different people from my real life, I realized that I was different. It was much easier to let go of small things, like when I had to deal with people before, I would get angry. Afterwards I surprised myself acting differently and I didn't realize it during the retreat but I understood afterwards."

Helen

"I mean even though I’m 33 and I should know how to act, there are just situations that you go through, like being abroad you deal with new people and new cultures. With the 42-day program it was good that they were repeating certain things, so one thing that was important was talking with nice speech, complimenting people, being polite. And that’s hard to do when you’re in a competitive environment in academics, or in a workplace, so it’s a good reminder."

FATMATA

"I am a student and I only knew about the theoretical aspect, of what the peace scholars have been talking about. This is a deeper continuation of the discourse on peace"

Muhammad

"I didn't believe in meditation because I never practised it. Whenever I would be unhappy, I would think I need to go out and fix the thing physically. I've never thought of fixing the thing in your heart inside you. Meditation really helps me."
