Spoken by Supreme Master Ching Hai
Singapore, March 8, 1993
(Originally in English)
Q: Why can't God prevent wars?
M: Why should Hes interfere with our game? Wars are caused by us human beings. As long as we don't realize that others and all creatures are ourselves, we will still have wars. Until we are bored, we are hurt, or others are hurt, we will not get enlightened. Eventually, we will long, from inside, to search for the Truth. We will understand that wars are useless. We should have peace. We should love others as we love ourselves.
This is our lesson, so God lets us learn this lesson. Hes does not prevent wars. Hes could terminate wars, but that will not do us any good because then we would not learn our lesson. We should prevent wars by ourselves. We should get together and end all wars. Only then will we truly understand what true eternal peace is.
~ The Supreme Master Ching Hai
If everyone in this world would share with others what they have in excess, then peace and happiness would reign in the world. There would be no more war or theft.
