This will make us happy.We can move on from the old thinking of separation into the reality of the oneness of humanity, focussing on the wellbeing of others. After all, each of us 7 billion humans is the same in wanting happiness and in holding the seeds of infinite love and compassion.So let us know that this century can be peaceful. Let us work hard with courage, self confidence and optimism. And do our best with sincere motivation.
