Is world peace dependent on the individual peace?

Guruji: It is impossible to have world peace without individual peace. Individual happiness brings collective happiness. Society devoid of the individual is impossible.
Peace is within the individual, in one’s mind and in one’s heart. It is impossible to have peace in the family if the individual is not peaceful, and it is impossible to have peace in society if families are not harmonious or peaceful. If there is no peace in each family it is impossible to have peace in society, and societies make the world. So the basic unit of world peace is individual peace. That which brings peace to the individual is wisdom. Devoid of wisdom there is no peace in an individual. Despite having all amenities, equipment, food, entertainment, comforts. None of these really bring peace. It is the wisdom of a broad vision and seeing life in context with the vast universe that brings peace.
The funny thing is, even if a small percentage of people on the planet are really peaceful they become peacemakers. Peace is as contagious as any contagious disease like cold or cough. Peace is viral! I tell you, genuine peace and wisdom is contagious.
The first rule on the spiritual path is to stop blaming yourself, because whom so ever you blame, do you like to be with them? Do you like to be with someone you are unhappy with? No! So, if you blame yourself, you can’t be with yourself.
Q: I want to know how to give honor and respect to the Guru. I feel like my mind is so small and the Guru is so vast and big.

Guruji: Just be natural!
Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out that going to the mountains is going home; that wildness is a necessity.
