If you dedicate the merit of loving-kindness to others or offer any positive deeds toward others with loving-kindness, you will generate merit, positive karma, and bring future happiness for yourself. If you give away your...
The first step to bringing peace is not to try to eliminate all external hostile forces, which is impossible anyway, but rather, to work with our own mind. If we tame our mind, we will enjoy true peace, as if we have pacified the whole world. Shantideva writes, Untamed beings are as unlimited as space. You will never be able to overcome them all.
