[Opinion] Ethiopia & HWPL Event


<Opinion> 
Ethiopia & HWPL Event

One of the important directions I realized from HWPL is the fact that 
it brings all religious people all over the world for peace.
On the 14th of March 2016, a great event took place in South Korea, Seoul, 
the ceremony of proclamation of declaration of cessations of war and achieving world peace.


Ethiopia: Ignorant of Belonging to Each Other!
<opinion>

There are so many wars in every corner of the glob but no peace around it. 
Every morning whatever you browse, read, watch or listen to the media, 
you only encounter with news of wars and conflicts.

The people must ask when will the media, supposed to be the watchdog of the people, set peace agendas. 
Should they have to wait until peace will thrive? 
Or should they work for peace in collaboration with the peace loving people all over the world?

In fact, they need to adjust their media agenda settings in line with the efforts to end war and conflicts as well as enhance peace throughout the world. World peace advocate Man Hee Lee while speaking to international media has emphasized, "If media does not inform the country of these peace works, most people cannot realize how the world itself is changed in the name of peace. So I hope you can join in our peace movement continuously as a representative of media in your country".

HWPL ☞ http://hwpl.kr/


Nowadays, there is no peace across the Middle East, Africa, Asia, and the likes. The glob is full of turmoil. These have direct or indirect impact to the countries even with a relatively better situation.

It is time to think a new approach in bringing peace to the world other than the approach the international community has been utilizing so far to bring and maintain peace. There is need to have a binding law that could help for the cessations of war and achieving world peace.

The world should cooperate for a binding law that could bring all peace stakeholders: religious people, the youth, women and others, together for the same vision. What if we Africans and the rest of the world look at what has been taking on in South Korea by Heavenly Culture, World Peace Restoration of Light? It has been working hard to bring lasting peace to the world. Based in South Korea, the organization has been working for the cessation of wars.

One of the important directions I realized from HWPL is the fact that it brings all religious people all over the world for peace. Besides, it managed to mobilize all religions, the youth, women and media for peace.

HWPL Site ☞ http://hwpl.kr/
Man Hee Lee of HWPL is delivering the keynote address

All kinds of wars should be ended and leave the space for peace to thrive. On the 14th of March 2016, a great event took place in South Korea, Seoul, the ceremony of proclamation of declaration of cessations of war and achieving world peace.

The Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War comprises ten major Articles: Prohibition of threat or use of force, War potential, Friendly relations and the prohibition of acts of aggression, State boundaries, Self determination, Dispute settlement, right to self defence, Freedom of religion, Religion, ethnic identity and peace as well as spreading a culture of peace.

This proclamation may not significantly differ from what is already mentioned in other laws and conventions. However, the approach is quite different from what has attempted so far. This is just bringing the efforts of the youth, women, religious people, media practitioners and politicians together.

It is working to mobilize the entire people to stand for peace and influence groups who have been attempting to destabilize the world and maintained such unstable situation to cease from their ill-activities.

http://allafrica.com/stories/201604181075.html

If this is the case, bringing all religions together for peace is so crucial in attaining lasting peace in the world. It is therefore mandatory to mobilize the youth, women, media parishioners political leaders and religious fathers to work in collaboration for the end of wars and the thieve of world peace. Religions should come together to work for peace to end wars that have been devastatingly affect the lives of mankind. As Buddha put, "Better than a thousand hollow words, is one word that brings peace".

Harmony and peace through dialogue of scriptures


Zimbabwe opens the way for inter-religious harmony and peace through dialogue of scriptures

The 2nd Zimbabwe 
HWPL WARP Office


Discussing the unity of religions and 
how one can reconnect and understand God



Zimbabwe - Heavenly Culture, World Peace, Restoration of Light (HWPL)

The Zimbabwe branch worked together with religious leaders to host the 2nd HWPL WARP (World Alliance of Religions’ Peace) Office on April 21, 2016. 

HWPL WARP Office was initiated as a practical solution to the achievement of peace by the Chairman Mr. Man Hee Lee of HWPL at the WARP Summit in September 2014. 

At present, 142 WARP Offices in 70 countries are being held every month, where various religious leaders contrast and compare their scriptures for a better mutual-understanding.

Members from a vast group of religions were represented at the scene, namely, Father Ron Bennett representing the Catholic Church, Mr. Paradza Kuyakwenzara from the Christian Science, Janita Hargoven from Brahma Kumaris, Ras Mweli Mabhikwa from Rastafarian.

When asked what role religious leaders can play to make sure there are no conflicts because of religion Mr. Ras Mweli Mabhikwa said “Religious leaders must stick to the truth especially the Christians. They must not twist the Bible to suit what they need especially for monetary gain because religious leaders are supposed to be spiritual leader. They must speak the truth boldly."

Reverend Mathias Tsine also said “People must tolerate one another for peaceful co-existence and religious leaders must learn to tolerate one another and accept other religions.”

Under the theme “Understanding Religion” religious leaders talked about “Who is the founder of your religion, when was it founded and where is its place of origin?” and “Through what event did it begin and how will it end?” In addition, they also had an open discussion about how one can reconnect and understand God.

Through the meeting, each religious leaders cleared misinterpretation of different religions and were led to a deeper acceptance of each religion’s standards and teachings which steer towards the accomplishment of peace.

With the support from participants, HWPL WARP Offices are being operated all over the world. The ultimate goal of the office is solve the conflicts caused by the difference of religion, which make up more than 80% of the whole conflicts

While, on the 14th of March, HWPL International Law Peace Committee proclaimed ‘The Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War’ in Seoul, South Korea. Through its 10 articles such as fostering religious freedom, promoting peaceful coexistence amongst religious and ethnic groups, and spreading a culture of peace, it presents the practical way to achieve peace.

HWPL, Work of Peace Building


Heavenly Culture 
World Peace 
Restoration of Light
(HWPL),
The Work of Peace Building

Heavenly Culture, World Peace, Restoration of Light(HWPL) is a non-profit non-governmental international organ
zization registered under the Korean Ministry of Foreign Affairs and operating out


Honoring Veterans 
& 
Peace building 


As we reflect on the freedoms and opportunities offered to us today, HWPL recognizes the courageous service of patriots before us that gave their lives for the hope of peace. 

Across the world, HWPL has held commemoration events and memorials in Ethiopia to the United States at the Dodger Stadium to immortalize the courage of the soldiers that fought during the Korean War. 

Today, HWPL’s vision and mission statement exists to fulfill the work of peace that their sacrifices began. 

As proclaimed in our Declaration of Peace, the preservation of human life and peace is the greatest legacy we can leave in our veterans’ honor. 

Declaration of World Peace
Officially proclaimed at 5.25 Peace Walk at the Peace Gate, the Declaration of World Peace is HWPL’s vision for sustainable peace
"The Heavens and the Earth formed by the hands of the Creator have been given to humanity as an inheritance.  In all the universe, life in its vast splendour exists only on our world. 
The life that grows on the earth is sustained from above - by light, by the rain, and by the air they provide unconditionally to all living beings.We have received the precious gift of life from above, let us give glory to heaven, and live in peace on earth.
 
This is the truest teaching of heaven. 
With this eternal gift - the grace and life we have received - are we entitled to fight, kill and destroy one another?We cannot claim to desire peace and continue to provoke one another, causing conflict for the sake of valuing our own national interests above those of others.
 
This will only take the lives of the youth, wasting them in the futility of war.This is not a legacy we can leave to future generations. 
Of what use is a young life, born in our day and age, if it is thrown away in this manner - thrown away without having had a chance to bloom?What price can compensate for the loss of a life?Do these young souls have another chance at life? 
As emissaries of World Peace; as people who are working towards the restoration of humanity through a new and heavenly culture, we declare the following: 
We call on the heads of state of every country to sign an international agreement - a commitment to bringing all wars to an end.We ask them to do this from a spirit of deep-seated love for the people of their country. 
We call on all youth to unite in an effort to stop wars and pursue the restoration of peace by agreeing not to fight one another. For World Peace to become a reality, this is the duty of all youth, everywhere. 
The only way to stop the fighting and pointless, tragic deaths, is to stop fighting.Nobody can ask for anything greater than this, and know that your efforts - the efforts of the young people of the world today in pursuit of peace - will remain as a never fading light of life for all future generations. 

Furthermore, we call on every person, every man, woman, and child in the world, to pick up the mantle of peace. In whatever way you can, we ask that you work to further the cause of world peace and restoration,making it a reality in your direct environments. Lastly, we call on the media to report responsibly and promote a message of peace to the world. 
World peace and restoration has begun at the same time this declaration is proclaimed. 
Thank you.

As a Result of the Paris Peace Conference


League of Nations: 
As a Result of the 
Paris Peace Conference


The League of Nations is founded as a result of the Paris Peace Conference.



The Organization of the League


▣ Membership of League of Nations

  •  As a general association of nations, the League depended on the commitment of its members. Questions of membership thus were fundamental, and were addressed in the League Covenant’s first substantive provision, Art. 1 (International Organizations or Institutions, Membership). The provision drew a distinction between original members of the League, and other entities admitted subsequently. Art. 1 (1) League Covenant confined original membership to the victorious signatories of the Peace Treaties of Versailles, St. Germain, Trianon, and Neuilly and 13 named neutral States, all listed in an Annex to the Covenant (Neutrality, Concept and General Rules). While the number of victorious signatory States was 27, one of them, the ‘British Empire’, was considered to comprise not only the United Kingdom (‘UK’), but also five additional units—Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, and India—all of which became League members in their own right. Of these potential 45 League members, three failed to ratify the Peace Treaty of Versailles and to take up membership: the US, the Hedjaz (an independent kingdom later to become part of Saudi Arabia), and Ecuador.

  •  As regards new members, Art. 1 (2) League Covenant declared membership to be open to ‘any fully self-governing State, Dominion or Colony’ (State; Protectorates and Protected States). New members had to give effective guarantees of their sincere intention to observe their international obligations as well as specific regulations with respect to its forces and armaments (Guarantee). Their admission had to be approved by two-thirds of the League Assembly. Between 1920 and 1937, 21 new members were admitted under this provision. They included the former enemy States Austria and Bulgaria, admitted in 1920, Hungary, admitted in 1922, Germany, admitted in 1926, and Turkey, which was admitted in 1932. Further, in 1934, the Soviet Union, which had not participated in the Peace Conference, and, in 1932, at least one former mandate territory, Iraq, became members (Mandates). One original Member State, the Kingdom of Yugoslavia, was re-admitted in 1944 after having left the League in 1941 (see also Yugoslavia, Dissolution of).

  •  In two provisions, the League Covenant addressed the termination of membership. In Art. 1 (3) League Covenant, express provision was made for the withdrawal of membership. Withdrawal depended upon two years’ notice by the member and the fulfillment of all its existing obligations including those under the League Covenant. Art. 16 (4) League Covenant allowed for the expulsion of members that were in breach of their obligations under the League Covenant. While the provision—unlike many other expulsion clauses—did not qualify the types of breaches that could give rise to expulsion, it required a unanimous vote of the League Council, in which the member concerned was not however entitled to participate (International Organizations or Institutions, Voting Rules and Procedures). Between 1920 and 1942, no fewer than 20 members left the League. Of these, two States ceased to be members when they lost their independence—Austria and Albania. The Soviet Union was expelled in December 1939 following its attack on Finland. Furthermore, 17 members withdrew pursuant to Art. 1 (3) League Covenant. The most prominent instances were the cases of Japan, in 1933, after the League had criticized the invasion of Manchuria; Germany, in 1933, using the failure of the World Disarmament Conference as a pretext (Disarmament); and Italy, in 1937, following the League’s condemnation of its invasion of Abyssinia, In terms of sheer numbers, the successive withdrawal of 11 out of the original 20 Latin American members was more relevant; it signaled a general feeling of dissatisfaction with the League’s work in general and its involvement in Latin American conflicts in particular (International Law, Regional Developments: Latin America). Membership in the League was thus subject to much fluctuation. While few recognized States completely abstained from it, the circle of members was never static, which complicated the League’s work considerably.

[HWPL WARP Office] Religious Leaders Find Common Ground in Scriptures



[HWPL WARP Office] 
Religious Leaders Find Common Ground 
in Scriptures Despite Differences



HWPL Hosts the World Alliance of Religions’ Peace, WARP Office 
with the Topic of Animals


To the monthly gathering, 8 religious members from the Hindu, Jain, and Christian faiths used their religious texts as a background to talk about "Animals." 



NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK (TIP): To this monthly gathering, 8 religious members from the Hindu, Jain, and Christian faiths used their religious texts as a background to talk about “Animals.”

When asked about animals in the scriptures, one of the Hindu representative stated that, “In the scriptures there are two things, the body and the soul. The real thing is the soul, the body is temporary. Animals are not looked down upon but is worshipped if the god is with it.” The representative from the Jain faith quoted, “We don’t have animals in our scriptures. But we treat them as equal because we believe in karma.”

Another Hindu representative added, “There are many animals in our scriptures. But rather than worshipping the animal, we are showing respect. We do not worship the animal but we worship the divine god. There is a difference between worship, praise, and respect.” He further added, “There are also animals in our scriptures that are not real, like a seven headed snake.” The Christian representative explained that their scripture contains animals but is used to figuratively express the spiritual world. He mentioned that the Bible also contains a seven headed beast. The Hindu and Christian faith leaders both were able to find common grounds through their scriptures.

This supports the quote made by Mr. Yongmin Shin, U.S. East Coast Director, “In the WARP Office, each religious leader talks about a certain topic, not through their own opinion, but rather through their respective religious text.” He further added, Every religion emphasizes peace. Our goal is to emphasize the common ground, not differences, so that we can build a peaceful community.

In conjunction to the WARP Offices, current and former heads of state, chief justices and politicians are working diligently to create an international legal instrument for peace and the cessation of war that root from religious conflict. Last week on March 14, HWPL held its Proclamation Ceremony of the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War and presented the ten articles of the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War with the members of the HWPL International Law Peace Committee, chief justices of the Supreme Court, and ministers of justice from 16 nations in Seoul, South Korea.

Abraham Lincoln Quotes & Urge Peace


Abraham Lincoln Quotes 
& Urge Peace





Truth is generally the best vindication against slander.
-Abraham Lincoln

We are not enemies but friends. We must not be enemies. Though passion may have strained it must not break our bonds of affection. The mystic cords of memory shall swell when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of nature.
-Abraham Lincoln


To sin by silence when they should protest makes cowards of men.
-Abraham Lincoln



I think that Presidents, lawmakers, journalists, artists, celebrities, and all people will have to pour out peace with great expression and passion for world peace!

Let's not be a coward for promoting peace.
Let's not act like a coward of peace.

Through that person’s thoughts and actions, one can know.

Let's be by participating in the substantial movement of peace!
Let's become a family of peace!!
