Let’s Take the Peace Train to Iran and Around the World

peace train coming to you soon

Like a lot of people, I am worried about the dire prospect of war in Iran.

Just what will it take to bring peace to the Middle East and the world?

Turn up your speakers, and check out these moving pictures of the other side of Iran – these are images of Tehran that we rarely see on our Western TV screens.

My sincere thanks to Lucas Gray for these images.

The words accompanying these images are from Yusuf Islam (Cat Stevens):-

Now Ive been happy lately, thinking about the good things to come
And I believe it could be, something good has begun

Oh Ive been smiling lately, dreaming about the world as one
And I believe it could be, some day its going to come

Cause out on the edge of darkness, there rides a peace train
Oh peace train take this country, come take me home again

Now Ive been smiling lately, thinking about the good things to come
And I believe it could be, something good has begun

Oh peace train sounding louder
Glide on the peace train
Come on now peace train
Yes, peace train holy roller

Everyone jump upon the peace train
Come on now peace train

Get your bags together, go bring your good friends too
Cause its getting nearer, it soon will be with you

Now come and join the living, its not so far from you
And its getting nearer, soon it will all be true

Now Ive been crying lately, thinking about the world as it is
Why must we go on hating, why cant we live in bliss

Cause out on the edge of darkness, there rides a peace train
Oh peace train take this country, come take me home again.

Just what will it take for us to take a Peace Train around the world?

time to start your own peace train?

  1. Hi Arvind!
    I love the idea of a Peace Train. I’m definitely on board!

    When we stop waging wars in our minds, we are boarding the Peace Train. When we replace unforgiving thoughts with love, we are boar the Peace Train. Let’s start with the peace inside and peace will surely flow into the world.

    Beautiful post! Loving blessings!

    As you say, lets allow our peace within to grow first and once it overflows into the world, peace will break out in the world.
