Once a devotee asked a living master, Paramahamsa Nithyananda (fondly known as Swamiji) a question in 2011.
She asked: “Why is there no peace in the world?”
Master replied: “There is no peace in you; that is why you are looking at that part in the world. Bring peace in your heart and you will simply see that part of the world which is living in peace.”
Many of us ask for global peace but how can we experience global peace when we are still carrying so much pain within us? The truth is we are all a part of the collective consciousness. Our inability to experience peace within us is due to the pain patterns from the past hangovers. Unless we complete with these pain patterns, we can never experience inner peace. Till inner peace is experienced by more and more individuals, there can never be global peace. Fundamentally, to spread global peace, we have to help humanity to be relieved of their pain patterns.
