We depend on each other for our survival. In terms of the threats we all face from climate change, national boundaries have no meaning. Looking at our small blue planet from space no such boundaries can be seen. This is the reality today. On this World Environment Day we have to think of the environment in terms of the welfare of the whole of humanity.

Protecting our environment is not a luxury we can choose to enjoy, but a simple matter of survival.

If human society loses the value of justice, the value of compassion, the value of honesty, the next generation will face greater difficulties and more suffering. Therefore, although bringing about inner change is difficult, it is absolutely worthwhile to try. What is important is to try our best. Even if we do not achieve what we want, at least we will have made the attempt on the basis of love and less selfishness.

So long as we are human we need compassion. Compassion brings inner peace and whatever else is going on, that peace of mind allows us to see the whole picture more clearly. So, in our education we need lessons about developing warmheartedness and finding inner peace. I’m convinced that today’s young people can achieve a more peaceful world if they cultivate that as their vision and begin to work towards it now.

A more peaceful world and a more peaceful century require that we rely not on weapons but on developing a widespread inner peace.

What is important is not so much how long you live as whether you live a meaningful life. This doesn’t mean accumulating money and fame, but being of service to your fellow human beings. It means helping others if you can, but even if you can’t do that, at least not harming them.
