When I was 14 I became present to the atrocities of the second world war. As a result I could never understand racial hatred - German to Jew, black to white, English to French, wife to husband, gangs etc. and as an adult, I still don't get it. In that moment, when I was 14, I created for myself that who I am for the world is world peace.
Until a few years ago, all I could be was a clearing for world peace, pull for it and hope for it. About 3 years ago I distinguished World Peace for myself. It is not all countries NOT warring. However, it is the presence of workability and communication. Regardless of the nature of the relationship, being open to working things out and being in communication will have peace be present in the world.
It was my thought that if I could create pockets of peace, like pearls that could be strung together, that eventually the string would be so long that it would cause a tipping point and the being of world peace would be the norm globally.
I have discovered that the best way to do this is to cultivate contentment or happiness. In myself. What I noticed that it has me wanting to cause that in others too. If my community is that, then it is naturally easier for me to be that too. For example, if I am not stressed at the end of my day, my communication with my friends and family is more pleasant, thereby creating a harmonious or peaceful environment. How can you cause pearls of peace in your life and the lives around you?
Together lets, cause peace being palpably present on the planet by the time I am 100 – 2059.
