So you want world peace? You toast to it at every opportunity and if you ever compete for the title of Miss America, you will be sure to mention it, right? But have you ever considered your own contribution to creating world peace?
Of course, we all know that our political power is mostly limited to voting, and so we have no tangible control over the deployments of troops to conflicts around the world. However, it is possible for people to make their own personal contribution to world peace by simply adjusting their own attitude.
The theory behind making a personal contribution to world peace is somewhat karmic in its concept. We have to be the kind of person we want others to be, and act in the way we would like to see others acting. Creating world peace can start with creating a daily personal peace. You can achieve this by following a few simple steps.
Pick a time of day to concentrate and center yourself. Close your eyes, stop thinking about that pile of laundry or whether you paid the auto insurance, and allow your mind to become quiet. Use this time to allow thoughts to flow freely across your consciousness, in a semi-meditative state. When you feel the calm of your mind beginning to flow to the rest of your body, then you may start the thinking process again. This is a great time to think about a few positive changes you may be able to make in your life or good things you can do for those around you.
When you return to your daily tasks, do it with a renewed positivity, which will begin to have a positive effect on your life and the lives of those around you. It will create a karmic “butterfly effect,” spreading from one person to another and contributing to society’s progression towards peace.
