'Peace does not drop from the sky' - Dalai Lama

“ Peace does not drop from the sky” says Dalai Lama.

In a chat with journalists during his recent trip to Canada Dalai Lama said in a response ,“ Peace does not drop from the sky!” Then he lets go his trademark giggly laugh , making that statement sound simple, down to earth and a matter of fact. For a cynical world grown apathetic to hearing solemn or profound statements delivered even more solemnly Dalai Lama is a godsend. He would make profound statements sound so utterly down to earth or simple. Stripped off the veneer of profoundness they are more palatable.

Of course “Peace does not drop down from the sky”!.

Yes, one needs to work for it .

Such statements in the everyday life , where you are searching for solutions” to resolve conflicts or avoid conflicts make you sound like a “softie” or even worse “Gandhian”.

In normal business processes or technical world it is true that “ solution does not drop down from sky”. One is forced look for solutions. And the innovative ones “find solutions”. That of course is normal . An approach that is so normal in business and technical world seems sounds so unreal in the conflict ridden day to day life .

Some times we are hit by an event that throws us off our comfortable perch, we get stunned into an immovable posture without realizing that “ solution does not drop down from the sky “.

We may be so stunned into inaction, that we may not even realize the consequences of our inaction. An inaction may result in “peace passing us by !”
