Introduce yourself to others at Dhamma Wheel.
I am very young to buddhism but believe that I have at last found a way through this life which means something to me, however because of this my mind just does not stop in creating ways to make our lives happier, I am encouraging myself in this because though extremely creative at times, as you will see, who can say what might happen. Anyway here goes see what you think
The world issues we have at the moment which seem to be mainly tied up with money (forgetting about the sick, starving and the like) our banks seem to be wavering all across the world. What do you think about championing a time for all currencies to be blended into one. Surely this would be a good time to bring us closer together, each country could still have their own flag or whatever on one side, like the euros. wont that start the debates. For it to be call a 'peace' similar to that of a 'euro' ten euros - ten peaces surely this could be the start of something much more beautiful.
If I knew how to tell the internet of this idea I surely would but not being much of a techy, what can I do? any help would be much much appreciated.

welcome, see you around from time to time hopefully!
This offering maybe right, or wrong, but it is one, the other, both, or neither!

"Others will misconstrue reality due to their personal perspectives, doggedly holding onto and not easily discarding them; We shall not misconstrue reality due to our own personal perspectives, nor doggedly holding onto them, but will discard them easily. This effacement shall be done."

Welcome Heidi and thanks for your efforts.
I think that if you look a human history for even five minutes, you will see that there has never been a time when there was not stress and misfortune of one sort or another. Based on this verifiable evidence alone, I think Gandhi's words may take on a more compelling power:
"Be the peace you seek."

Welcome. I'd also echo Genkaku's sentiments above.
If you have asked me of the origination of unease, then I shall explain it to you in accordance with my understanding:
Whatever various forms of unease there are in the world, They originate founded in encumbering accumulation. (Pārāyanavagga)'We should not congratulate someone on the success of their misdeeds, but on the contrary should endeavour to advise him or her to lead a more skilful and wholesome life. If such advice is ignored then we can only give up and let go' - Phra PanyapatipoDharma Wheel (Mahayana / Vajrayana forum)

Welcome! I'm not sure if one world currency will really solve any of the major problems, but you never know! You will still have several countries indebted to others, still have poverty, widespread inequities in wealth, etc. Neither socialism nor capitalism has solved anything up to now, so don't know if there is any magic bullet for solving the problems.
