Ending Hostility - Sutta Nipata 4.15

The Buddha Gotama said, there is no security or safety from arming one's self, only fear. If arming one's self protected one from attack, or aided in one's defense, there would not be so many people presently fighting each other, having fought each other for so long. Hostility is the cause of fighting, or insecurity, of weapon-taking. Like a painful sting or thorn whose pain causes a person to run about and rave insanely, only when hostility is taken out is there an opportunity to settle down; only when hostility is removed is there an opportunity for peace. To remove hostility, one must no longer grieve, one must no longer mourn. To become beyond grief, beyond mourning, you must become dis-attached, let go of the past, and sacrifice all that is yours. All that has gone before. And all that is to come - have no hope for it. Have no fear of it.  Courage!  In sacrificing your weapon, in sacrificing your safety, in sacrificing everything.
