Presence

Causeless joy, imperturbable peace, love that knows no opposite, and freedom at the heart of all experience...this is our ever-present nature under all circumstances.

Presence

Our self, aware presence, knows no resistance to any appearance and, as such, is happiness itself; like the empty space of a room, it cannot be disturbed and is, therefore, peace itself; like this page, it is intimately one with whatever appears on it and is thus love itself; and like water that is not affected by the shape of a wave, it is pure freedom. Causeless joy, imperturbable peace, love that knows no opposite, and freedom at the heart of all experience this is our ever-present nature under all circumstances."

The Art of Peace

Sun Tzu, author of 'The Art of War', believed that the acme of leadership consists in figuring out how to subdue the enemy with the least amount of fightinga fact that America's Founders also understood, and practiced with astonishing success. For it to work, however, a people must possess both the ability and the willingness to use all available instruments of power in peace as much as in war. US foreign policy has increasingly neglected the instruments of civilian power and become overly dependent on lethal solutions to conflict. The steep rise in unconventional conflict has increased the need for diplomatic and other non-hard power tools of statecraft. The United States can no longer afford to sit on the proverbial three-legged national security stool ("military, diplomacy, development"), where one leg is a lot longer than either of the other two, almost forgetting altogether the fourth leginformation, especially strategic communication and public diplomacy. The United States isn't so much becoming militarized as DE civilianized. According to Sun Tzu, self-knowledge is as important as knowledge of one's enemy: "if you know neither yourself nor the enemy, you will succumb in every battle." Alarmingly, the United States is deficient on both counts. And though we can stand to lose a few battles, the stakes of losing the war itself in this age of nuclear proliferation are too high to contemplate.

Learning the right lessons from history illustrate the importance of peacebuilding and the need for the US Military to study beyond the art of war and to learn the art of peace.

The Art of Peace

As a career soldier, I have studied the art of war, yet, most of what I learned from the great warriors of history did not prepare me for the reality that I had faced in Afghanistan and Iraq. My deployed experiences taught me that I had trained for victory in combat, but they did not prepare me for the challenges of maneuvering through the quagmire of building peace. I now realize that building peace is the required means to accomplish the strategic end. My experience has taught me that disabling enemy networks is only a fraction of the problem, and that more time, energy and effort should be placed on enabling friendly networks. A singular security focus will often enable enemy networks through disenfranchising the populace. To accomplish the strategic aim of building a stable Government of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan (GIROA) the United States should apply the appropriate strategic means. Learning the right lessons from history illustrate the importance of peacebuilding and the need for the US Military to study beyond the art of war and to learn the art of peace.

The Glorious Art of Peace

Human progress and prosperity depend on a peaceful environment, and most people have always sought to live in peace, yet our perception of the past is dominated too often by a narrative that is obsessed with war. In this ground breaking study, former Guardian journalist John Gittings demolishes the myth that peace is dull and that war is in our genes, and opens an alternative window on history to show the strength of the case for peace which has been argued from ancient times onwards. Beginning with a new analysis of the treatment of peace in Homer's Iliad, he explores the powerful arguments against war made by classical Chinese and Greek thinkers, and by the early Christians. Gittings urges us to pay more attention to Erasmus on the Art of Peace, and less to Machiavelli on the Art of War. The significant shift in Shakespeare's later plays towards a more peace-oriented view is also explored. Gittings traces the growth of the international movement for peace from the Enlightenment to the present day, and assesses the inspirational role of Tolstoy and Gandhi in advocating non-violence. Bringing the story into the twentieth century, he shows how the League of Nations in spite of its "failure" led to high hopes for a stronger United Nations, but that real chances for peace were missed in the early years of the cold war. And today, as we approach the centenary of the First World War, Gittings argues that, instead of being obsessed by a new war on terror, we should be focusing our energies on seeking peaceful solutions to the challenges of nuclear proliferation, conflict and extremism, poverty and inequality, and climate change.

The Art of War and Peace

What marries the Art of War and Peace is the concept that armed conflict should be avoided as expressed in the words of Sung Tzu, "The superior person wins his battles without fighting".

The Art of War and Peace

Conflict resolution. Strategy for success. Contemplation. What is most interesting about the discussion of the Art of War and Peace (AWP) is the necessity of establishing a basic understanding of the title. If the understanding of name is not comprehended, the reason for the composition becomes unclear. It is my intention is for the reader to understand that the rules governing the Art of War are the same rule that govern the Art of Peace. The aims that govern one, govern the other and it is logically essential that to understand one, we must understand the other. We can only understand the nature of conflict resolution if we understand the causes of conflict. What marries the Art of War and Peace is the concept that armed conflict should be avoided as expressed in the words of Sung Tzu, "The superior person wins his battles without fighting." The reality of The Art of War and the Art of Peace is that conflict is inevitable. Therefore we should prepare ourselves for this reality. The resolution of conflict comes from our own ability to overcome it by knowledge of the rules of engagement. Conflict survives because of doctrines of attrition. Attrition extends our reasons to commit to conflict, limiting our sight and vision that are necessary to continue forward. The Art of War and Peace is a training guide that is essential to those who wish to create a greater meaning of what we do. The words and meaning will be out of reach to those who are orthodox in their understanding. The reality is, "We are only limited by the beliefs we have." If our beliefs are expandable, we will understand well the art.
