It’s difficult to sheath our weapons and lay down our armor because we’re not only fighting each other, but also our own instinct to survive. If we view existence as a self-survivalist, “every man for himself”, “to the victor goes the spoils”, then inevitably this leads us down the path of self-destruction. Our only redemption here is to implant our sacred trust in another being without expectation of reciprocity. If this is impossibility, then the children of this earth shall never inherit the fruits of peace. Inversely, one maybe considered to be naive by the body cynics if they have the capacity for unconditional trust.
