 Since the state of the world is a manifestation and reflection of the minds of its inhabitants,​ the achievement of a permanent universal peace would require nothing short of a radical and widespread transformation in the minds of these inhabitants — a beautiful but unrealistic fantasy. What lies within the scope of real possibility is the attainment of a lasting individual peace within ourselves, a peace that comes with the fulfillment of the Buddha'​s threefold training. This internal peace, however, will not remain locked up in our hearts. Overflowing its source, it will radiate outward, exercising a gentle and uplifting influence upon the lives of those who come within its range. As the old Indian adage says, one can never make the earth safe for one's feet by sweeping away all thorns and gravel, but if one wears a pair of shoes one's feet will be comfortable everywhere. One can never be free from enmity by eliminating all one's foes, but if one strikes down one thing — the thought of hate — one will see no enemies anywhere. Since the state of the world is a manifestation and reflection of the minds of its inhabitants,​ the achievement of a permanent universal peace would require nothing short of a radical and widespread transformation in the minds of these inhabitants — a beautiful but unrealistic fantasy.
