It seems daily we wake up to more news of continued upheaval, war, injustice, and senseless violence everywhere. Despite the many initiatives put forth and strategies employed, a lasting solution for global peace remains elusive. In a world teeming with turmoil and unrest, people yearn for changes that will bring peace.

If only I didn’t have this problem or that hardship, I’d be at peace.
But are changes in our circumstances alone the way to inner peace?
