Sometimes when I’m relaxed and then pictures of some past events of the Boko Haram insurgence begin to slip through my mind, I just wonder… I mean human beings with flesh and blood celebrating over the flow of blood they’ve caused. More painful is the fact these people who are being targetted are so innocent that they’ve always been taken unaware, unprepared with no weapons, just nothing except maybe the few plans they have in mind to accomplished for the day in an attempt to keep surviving. Too bad, but we can’t give up in making the little efforts we can to restore the Peace we so much desire in our hearts and in our communities or countries.
” This world is insane!” Have you ever thought that? You look around and see violence, greed, corruption, fear-mongering news, stories proclaiming threats of every kind; raucous demonstrations for and against every point of view;
conflict, conflict, everywhere.
And all you want to do is live peacefully with your family, friends, associates and neighbours, do some productive and satisfying work, and enjoy serenity or “peace of mind”.
The world seems at complete odds with this, and you wonder, “what’s going on here? Isn’t there more to life than these? What can I do?”
You can with a bit of effort, reside at Sanity Island.
Where is that?
It is nowhere and everywhere- it is within.
In Sanity Island, there is a different purpose for living than what we mostly see.
Lots of people have the effort, with a little assistance from a friend or two, and transformed their perspective, realizing that the outer world is but a reflection of the inner; that is when the conflict within is first understood and re-evaluated, then serenity and sanity can be the way of life. And knowing that, “not until enough people stop their internal warfare will there be peace on Earth.
