We can't sit quietly in a room for twenty minutes. We become restless, we panic. We check the phone messages, watch tv, read a book, chat with friends. We can't even find peace with ourselves.
Yet we want world peace.
We become the judge and jury, and declare that certain individuals (or nations, religions) are destroying the world. Were it not for them, life would be beautiful. Or so we think. Hypocrisy? Certainly.
Worse yet, it is born of a self-righteous attitude - that one is better than the rest.
Less judging, more understanding.
What we need is humility, not the arrogance of a self-righteous mind.
This too is Buddhism.
