If people could achieve satisfaction without destruction, I believe they would. Millions of us want to live without destruction already. Now we are looking for a way to make our will and desire more powerful than war. Fortunately, that isnít complicated. According to the ancient Vedic texts, you will know you are living the way of peace when these three things are present:
Seva: Your actions harm no one and benefit everyone.
Simran: You remember your true nature and your purpose for being here.
Satang: You belong in the community of peace and wisdom.
Seva brings the joy of knowing that your daily actions support life as a whole. You become part of the planetís evolution, not its wholesale destruction.
Simran brings the satisfaction of expanded possibilities. You are not limited to being one individual lost in a sea of humanity. You find your authentic self and your authentic truth. A unique path to mastery is opened for you and you alone.
Satsang brings the satisfaction of having no enemies. You are at home in the world.
