“Reciprocity in Rights Respect To Promote Positive Peace” (RRR 2 PPP)

Posted October 2, 2018 from Cameroon

I am incredibly honored to be a peace builder. An opportunity to personally answer many questions related to conflicts, violence and Peace. Years ago, I observed a drastical change in many countries in the world today where Peaceful people became less peaceful people and their peaceful ways gradually became substituted by very violent actions. Yes! During the tough times when Peace seems not to be there the oppression and violence consumes the energy we need for inner work to build inner peace. One thing is clear; through the inner peace in ourselves we can possibly achieve inner peace in our own communities to promote positive peace. Sometimes I used to think that when people are not violent they are in peace but this is not always true because the well-being of the people comes from within and base on how they are perceived by their own society. There is need for inner peace.

The rights of people have always been a very vital key which they see as their entitlements especially the fundamental Human Rights. The practical question I keep on asking my self is “How do we realize Peace and justice in our everyday world if the Reciprocity in Rights Respects to Promote Positive Peace is absent”? The respect of rights of everyone is what makes human beings happy. Be it economic, social, cultural and Human Rights.  The rights are well written out in constitutions however we need to reciprocate and do more of mutual obligation exchange of the entitlements and privileges among us as peace practitioners.

Strong institutions and justice at all levels will promote positive peace. Strong collaboration from governing institutions in countries and citizens is vital to promote peace. Job creation, youths and civic engagement, ending violence against women and men, mutual respect of rights of people, indigenous people, refugees, irrespective of their cultural background is very essential to promote peace. It is true that conflicts will never end but what makes people feel happy is the way we deal with them so that conflicts will not take the place of peace but will rather promote Peace.

Personal or self-examination is also necessary to promote positive peace. We need to think of ourselves and our actions first before thinking of the reactions and responses of others. What we do with the rights of others should be a reflection always and will help us to have mutual respect of rights. Striving to respect the rights of other people means striving to have your own entitlements hence promoting the Right to peace, human rights for peace and positive peace. Giving more energy to build peace through our different communities and showing love to others around us still remains the key. Harmony, forgiveness and well-being leads to inner peace above all reciprocity in the respect of rights irrespective of the status of individuals will command the promotion of positive peace.

Welcome to World Pulse my darling sis Fri.So glad you are here finally.I love your passion!''We need to think of ourselves and our actions first before thinking of the reactions and responses of others"Powerful quote!I think this where we should begin.The reason the world is in chaos is because we often look at what is wrong with others and not with ourselves.We often want to fix others and not ourselves.
