A new age of love and peace awaits us
All over the world, today, there is a cry for a new world order a new life For men and women, young and old are tired of the present order The cry comes from temples and churches, from factories and farms, from homes and offices, from souls seeking peace, and hearts full of aspirations for a better future
All over the world, today, there is a cry for a new world order; a new life. For men and women, young and old are tired of the present order. The cry comes from temples and churches, from factories and farms, from homes and offices, from souls seeking peace, and hearts full of aspirations for a better future.
But let me tell you there is hope for us all. I believe a new age is dawning, a new age in which love and peace will be established on this earth. I don’t merely believe, it, I can almost hear the new age knocking on the doors of our hearts. All we need are the blessed ones who will open the door to the new age.
I am convinced that we are standing on the threshold of a new age of love and peace that will see all nations and all people united by the bonds of brotherhood. Today, we have arrived at a stage where, nations, individuals alike must learn to understand one another to love one another, to dwell in peace with one another or perish. There is no other choice.
The very first note on the musical scale of peace is love. We must love all not merely our family and friends, our kith and kin we must love all creation. We must cultivate the fine art of friendship; we must make friends with all for the permanent peace plan can only be a friendship plan.
Therefore, we must go out and make friends with people belonging to different religions, different communities and nationalities. This is what friendship is all about; not just sticking to the people you know, your neighbours, your colleagues, the people you grew up with.
Let me ask you a question: When you go out for a walk, do you smile at the people whom you meet on the way? Some people will smile back at you; some people will not return your smile, but you have not lost anything. But you win new friends with your smile and that’s what the world needs: bridges of friendship between people, communities and nations.
Each one of us can become an ambassador of peace, a harbinger of peace, merely by smiling the smile of friendship. We can become smile millionaires if we keep on smiling, smiling, smiling...
On the bus, in the train, in the elevator, in the supermarket, at the lunch counter — smile at the people standing before you, behind you and next to you. You will have made at least four friends and paved the way to peace. So it is that George Elliot tells us: What sunshine is to flowers, smiles are to humanity.
They are but trifles, but when scattered along life’s pathway, the good they do is inconceivable...I often say to myself that the day on which I have not made a new friend is a lost day indeed. When all the people of the world become friends with each other, there will be no wars....Love blesses the one who offers it and the one who receives it. Love can keep you healthy and happy, and help you face the problems of daily life in the right spirit.
