An End To War by John Cali

Flag of Peace

How many of us have asked “Will there ever be an end to war?” I have many times, and you probably have too. I know the ultimate answer is “Yes.” But will we see it in our lifetimes?

Harry Patch, the last surviving British soldier from World War 1, died a few years ago, on July 25, 2009. He was 111 years old.

Harry once said “War is organised murder, and nothing else.”

Here’s Spirit.


You often talk about peace on earth, and have for centuries. Yet you’ve never experienced it, except for short intervals.

So what’s the answer? How can humans create real, lasting peace on earth?

Our answer is short and simple: Create peace in your hearts first. Then you will have peace on earth. Then you will have an end to war.

There is no such thing as a country creating peace. Why? Because no single country can create peace. You will never find a country who will be the world’s peacemaker. The government may say it wants peace. But until all its citizens want peace it won’t happen.

World peace can be created only one individual at a time. When the mass of humans want peace your world will finally be on the real path to peace on earth. Until then peace will remain elusive.

The “bottom line” here is this: Each of you, individually and separately, must focus on creating peace in your own hearts, in your own personal lives. You can create peace only one person at a time.

Then you will begin to know peace on earth. Then you will know an end to war.

    I have no doubt that peace in our hearts is the beginning. I also love that Pete Seeger song with the video. It shows what it might be like for there to be a permanent peace declared on earth. I suspect it will happen sooner than we might reasonably expect.

    The following may be a bit off the subject yet it contains an important connection – when you share your turth fully and openly there are no secrets so the element of Fear has no wind to blow it sails. There is also Peace in your heart/soul for there is nothing tugging you away from your center. War is no longer a consideration.
    Here is what I am referencing:

    Probably many of you, like me, think social media [Facebook, etc] is a waste of our time and just a new form of gossip. I never looked deeper to try and find any value to its’ purpose until a friend of mine shared information about an upcoming book titled Faces Behind the Pages That Inspire . Here is the ‘higher’ awareness that her email imparted: for generations mankind has been taught to sparingly share information about ourselves , even with your closest friends and relatives, because ‘anything you say can and will be used against you’ at some future point. What this did was it caused us to bottle up our truths, emotions and even creativity. It created an underlying subtle fear both to sharing and interaction, especially with strangers.

    We are now in the new era of Oneness. There can be no more secrets if we are to achieve Oneness completely, and without secrets the ‘fear factor’ in the world will drop dramatically – [remember Fear is the most powerful (control) weapon used on earth]. So all this sharing of information truly does have a huge benefit in raising the level of awareness/consciousness. Yes there is a lot of fluff shared on social media, but like the pearl that lies deep beneath the sea, pearls of wisdom are there to be found and they are increasing in number every day as people open up by letting their truths all hang out for all to see.

    Yes, social media may still not be for you but at least you now have a reason to give it your positive energy when it comes to you attention, and that’s a good thing!

      Thank you very much, Joseph! Well-said. I participate in social media, especially Twitter. Facebook too, but someone manages that account for me. As you said, there are negatives and positives with social media, as with everything else. I think your suggestion to send positive energy is excellent.

      Thanks again,

    Yes I have always felt that at the individual level and through our evolution that will end ‘the war … Love and understanding in our hearts … And so it’ ..
