HONG KONG youths are encouraged to 'get in touch with themselves spiritually', find their hidden potential and focus their energy on developing these talents. At a recent celebration of the 50th anniversary of the United Nations, Raja Yoga Centre's Richard Green told Young Post that sometimes children should 'learn as well as unlearn' some of the things imposed on them. 'Children have their own emotions and values even though they won't think about them on their own,' he said. 'With guidance, their values can be emphasised and such behaviour will turn them into more creative human-beings.' Christopher Drake, who compiled the latest Chinese version of a peace message-filled book, Vision For A Better World, put it this way. 'It's like there are a lot of light bulbs in a room, scattered everywhere. If you put the light bulbs together, the light will be more powerful. Then if you focus that energy in a positive direction, you can achieve a lot.' Mr Drake said that regardless of social class, nationality, sex or age, people around the world had similar hopes of peace: honesty from the government, environmental protection, positive use of scientific research and friendliness among people. 'But sometimes we have to sort out our priorities in the real world. 'For instance, if you want to be honest with others but feel frustrated as others might not be honest with you, you should take the initiative and start being honest first.' Both Mr Drake and Mr Green were behind the celebration which aimed at sharing hopes for a better world through game booths for children, dances from China, Brazil, Spain and India for the general public and a 'human chain' with people holding hands for Hands Of Peace on Earth - H. O. P. E. More then 40 charity and conservation groups set up booths for the event. The organisers said the territory was becoming more concerned over world peace.
