Global Cooperation


The Secret to Global Peace

The working-presumption of prior unity—rather than the search for unity—is the right and true context for all human exchanges. If there is the working presumption of prior unity, then ego-surrendering cooperation and tolerance make perpetual human peace. . .

Not-Two Is Peace by Adi Da

Writing pacifist words does not produce peace. Making pacifist speeches does not produce peace. Peace marches and meetings do not produce peace. Big peace events do not produce peace. Praying for peace does not produce peace.

All those things are good, but if they could produce peace, we would already have it. Why don’t all the good things produce peace?

Because they are based on an all-pervading error in consciousness.

What is that error? It’s the error that humankind has been making for thousands of years. It’s the presumption of separation—the old consciousness that presumed that basically we are all separate.

What is the truth? The truth is that basically—even scientifically established—we are one, we are in the state of prior unity—inherently one before any act or feeling of separation.

The great secret is that the billions of humankind actually already has the power to take control and make global peace our reality. What is required to realize peace is an all-pervading change of consciousness–the force and integrity of everybody, resonating with the truth of our inherent unity.
