Quote 5 - 29 - 12

Peace is not a relationship of nations. It is a condition of mind brought about by a serenity of soul. Peace is not merely the absence of war. It is also a state of mind. Lasting peace can come only to peaceful people.

Jawaharlal Nehru

True! I have often wondered about people that seem to want War. They speak of Freedom, Love of Country, etc. But they really seem to want to fight about Something, no matter what.

It's always been that way. Even in peaceful neighborhoods, you can find those that want to fight about property lines, right of way, who-can-do-what, you name it. They will fight. I don't think they have ever known Peace. It's just not their State of Mind.

Why? what makes them so war-like?

Seems to me that it is a leftover primeveal conditioning. No mater which religion, race, sagas and ancient remnants, war and fighting are at the core of it.
