Too few of us consider that PEACE starts with each separate individual as Spinoza did when he said, “PEACE” is not an absence of war; it is a virtue, a state of mind, a disposition for benevolence, confidence and justice. We can say today that man is far too clever to be able to survive without wisdom.  No one is really working for PEACE unless he is primarily working for the restoration of WISDOM. PEACEFUL INDIVIDUALS CREATE A PEACEFUL SOCIETY SPECIAL FOOD FOR THOUGHT: In Hawaii, we have something called "Aloha Spirit" which is the foundation to World Peace. "Aloha" is a word we use not only in parting, but also in greeting and to express love. It is appropriate in all these situations. The word "ALOHA" is made up of three Hawaiian root words: a - lo - and ha. "A" means that which enables one to see. "Lo" means of the earth, and "Ha" means the life force. When I say "Aloha" to you, I am saying "I can see the life force within your earthly form." And when you say "Aloha" to me, you are saying, "I can see the life force in your earthly form." This is a gift that Hawaii can give to the World.
