Yesterday was the 70th anniversary of the first use of a nuclear bomb in war, at Hiroshima. Today we take a moment to reflect on the meaning of that event and the implications for our lives.
One thing is clear: All-out war between nations has become obsolete. It’s just too dangerous. It could wipe out both “sides” and even all life on earth.
It’s time to replace war with a better option.
We now have the means to do it. We can replace war – and all the causes of war – by shifting to a whole new way of thinking, feeling, and acting. How? People all over the world can learn and practice making this shift by playing a new kind of game – a game called RT Everyday.
As we play RT Everyday, we learn to bring out the best qualities in ourselves and each other – the qualities that throughout history have been called the human Virtues.
We also learn a new way of talking and listening to each other called RT Conversation: instead of trying to win arguments, we respectfully build on each other’s ideas to increase shared understanding, and generate new possibilities beyond what any of us could have envisioned alone.
And we learn how to replace the experience that our lives are controlled by our circumstances and by forces outside us with experiencing our own inner power to Create Our World – any world we choose – “From the Inside Out.”
All kinds of people are involved in this worldwide project – educated and uneducated, rich and poor, people who think of themselves as spiritual and people who don’t, people of all ages, races, and widely varying cultural backgrounds, people of differing beliefs, customs, nationalities and languages.
We practice what we are learning everyday in our own lives, by supporting each other in replacing bad habits that don’t work for us with better habits that do work – knowing that not only are we transforming our own day-to-day existence, but together we are also transforming our communities and nations and even the whole world.
As we reach out to others and share with them this wonderful new possibility, we are bringing this transformation to all humanity. We are eliminating the very causes of war and at the same time sharing better ways of living and interacting – building a whole new civilization for all of us.
We ARE replacing war with a better option!
