from the Introduction
by Masami Saionji
It is indeed true that peace begins in each human heart. Yet, for the majority of people in the world today, the creation of world peace seems like too large a task to be attempted by average, individual citizens. We always think that the world’s problems were caused by governments, or people holding special authority. Likewise, we feel that the responsibility for creating peace also belongs to some force outside us: politicians, world leaders, or people who are greater, stronger, more learned, or more experienced than we. It never occurs to us that our own daily thoughts, words, and actions have an impact on the world scene, nor do we think that we are in any way responsible for creating global peace and harmony.

Why do people feel this way? Why do so many of us believe that our own power is insignificant, or that we lack the potential to make a real contribution to world peace? I think it is because, although we are living in the 21st century, our minds are still locked into 20th century values.

If we continue to live with 20th century values, humanity will not be able to survive in the 21st century. What the world needs now, more than anything else, is a total revolution in consciousness. It is time for us to shift our focus from a belief in what is external, short-term, and ephemeral, to an exploration of what is internal, lasting, and essential. My hope is for the 21st century to be an ‘age of the individual,’ an age in which each of us inquires deeply into to our intrinsic nature and potential.
