Such people feel a responsibility to respond to all people's needs and tribulations, and do not feel any responsibility to be at peace and serene. They do not view serenity and being at peace as an essential part of a life of integrity. They do not pray for integrity in a serene way which is characterized by peace. They feel that they must first earn the right to be at peace with themselves, earn the right to serenity through the stress of good works and the accomplishment of all possible problem solving. It is dangerous to assume responsibility for other people's peace and serenity. It is dangerous to assume that it is our responsibility to solve all of other people's problems before we can enjoy peace and serenity ourselves. The way to help other people enjoy peace and serenity includes us being at peace and serene ourselves. If we are not at peace and serene ourselves, we are troubled, and we likely to be a trouble to other people who are disturbed by our being agitated. We may be agitated and agitate them in attempting to solve their problems for them. In trying to solve other people's problems for them we may destroy their peace and serenity. They may not appreciate our efforts to solve their problems. We may violate their rights in our attempts to be helpful. We may violate their privacy. We may force ourselves upon them, when they do not want to be helped. We may assume that they desire for themselves, what we desire for ourselves and/or them; and be wrong in that assumption. Some people seem unable to be at peace until they are in full control of all circumstances that they can be aware of. They believe that the essence of peace and serenity is being in control. Such people destroy much in their effort to achieve peace for themselves. In their efforts to be in control they violate many people's rights through many coercive (and often violent) acts. The way to peace involves fulfilling the responsibility to be serene and at peace on the way. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
