Scientists are producing findings to show that basic human nature is positive and compassionate, but unfortunately modern education is inadequate when it comes to developing it. Too little attention is paid to inner values.
World peace can only be based on inner peace. If we ask what destroys our inner peace, it’s not weapons and external threats, but our own inner flaws like anger. When you meet someone you don’t like, or someone says something unpleasant to you, it’s your own response that disturbs your inner peace. What’s more, constant fear and anger undermine our immune system. This is one of the reasons why love and compassion are important, because they strengthen us. This is a source of hope.
