I believe it is.
We will witness peace when we as global citizens shift our focus — when we make it a priority to share rather than shoot, to aid rather than arm, to feed rather than force, and to care rather than conquer.
As people of the world, it is imperative for us to pay attention to what’s happening, to speak up when we are inspired, and to stop sitting back and waiting for others to ‘do something.’
But how do we get there? Let’s break it down…
What’s one simple thing you can do right now to effect world peace? Be peaceful in all your interactions – choose to be calm, patient, kind, and empathetic in every situation and with every person you come across today (including yourself). Do it again tomorrow. And the next day.
As your inner world becomes calm and tranquil, you will begin to see a ripple effect that touches everyone you come in contact with. Pretty soon, others will want to “be like you” and will ask you how they too can be relaxed, easy-going, and tolerant.
Once you are living peacefully, you can begin to build others up, buoy their confidence, and encourage their dreams. You’ll share your gifts freely and delight in watching others find peace in their lives.
As you start noticing and caring about others and how they’re experiencing life, you will naturally be concerned about what’s happening in your community, city, state, country, and world. Coming from a peaceful place, you will begin to get involved, share your ideas and solutions, donate, volunteer, and help to make the world a better place for everyone.
As you can imagine, if every individual follows these steps, in no time at all we’ll experience world peace!
Be careful to not let the trumped-up issues become insurmountable obstacles in your mind. Simply take these steps of creating inner peace, teaching others how to do the same, and reaching out to the wider world to reset our global priorities. And just like dominoes, everything will rapidly fall into place.
World Peace is achievable – and it begins with you, right now.
