All of us in the world are seeking peace. But are we serious?

Sadhguru : Before looking at how the world should be, you should look at how you should be within yourself. If you can’t keep yourself peaceful, keeping the world peaceful is just empty talk. Young people, who have their life ahead of them, should first invest a certain amount of time on their inner wellbeing. How you should be within yourself should be a primary concern.

Today, it is entertainment for people to talk about world peace. I
have been to a number of international conferences and what I see is, people simply enjoy talking, they are not serious about what they want to do. Ninety percent of the people seem to be happy that they got a ticket to travel, they are staying in some big hotel, and that’s it! I don’t see the seriousness in people – that they are there because they are interested in creating peace.

This is because violence has its investment and conflict has its benefits. Someone is benefiting from the whole thing and it is a charade that is kept up. Many people have not suffered the pain of conflict, they do not know what it means to really be hit by these things. They only see it on television, as some kind of excitement, seeing bombs blow up and body parts fly all over the place. These kinds of movies are popular. And now, you don’t have to see any movies because it is on the news every day. Somehow, people are not serious about peace, except those who are really hit by its absence.

If this has to change, the first thing a human being has to learn is to be peaceful within himself. As there is a science and technology to create external wellbeing, there is a science and technology to create inner wellbeing.
