War & Peace Resources

Are we born hardwired for war? Does teaching peace education prevent peace? These are just a few important questions to consider when understanding what creates war and prevents peace.

The importance of understanding what creates wars and prevents peace.

The impulse to fight is biologically and genetically built into us for survival — to protect ourselves from a person or group we believe is a threat to us. 

War has been going on for thousands of years. There are ongoing attempts to stop wars, yet they still go on.

The question we need to ask is: “What creates these wars? Is the cause of it outside ourselves – with the “enemy” – or does the battle begin in my brain?” When we see that we are the source of conflict we can make change.

The truth is that the only way to prevent wars is to begin inside ourselves – to see that our conditioned thinking is creating a war in our mind. Prejudicial images of the “enemy” creates war. Our conditioning comes from our brain’s reaction to feeling a threat to its survival.
