The 6-Step Peace Process was inspired in 1998 after Elaine attended a spiritual conference in Miami. Everyone seemed to want world peace, but nobody had a plan. She had the idea to run the thought of World Peace on the Six-Discipline Model published in her textbook, Managing Risk. She explained, “The Six-Discipline Model is a simple process model of the mind that can run any thought. I wrote ‘World Peace’ at the top and changed the generic process to a specific thought of peace and love. Later, I realized the process for world peace was the same as inner peace. The model scales perfectly from universal to personal!”
What does a vision of world peace look like? Participant Samarah Daniels shared, “What I’d like to see is that it’s a global event. A meteor shower is what I’m suggesting. It’s a meteor shower of a vibrational field of love that awakens people to the possibility that we can all work together. And as one, create not only world peace but inner peace and peace among nations.”
Aaron Dill imagined what world peace would look like if we had it now. “I envision it more in the context of community, living together in community and not necessarily religious community, but that everybody’s holding up basically the same values. I think it’s really important to focus on caring, sharing and humility. Even in the past, Christian communities have taken a vow of obedience. Well, obedience can be abused. And I’ve always thought taking a vow of humility would be even better, because everybody is wishing the same thing about being humble. I think humility is definitely a big part of it.”
Jak Bicaci offered his viewpoint, “I would like to see a Department of Peace. I mean somebody who really enforces world peace. We don’t have that. No country has that and I think it’s time for us to establish that platform in each government.”
To bring about her vision, Samarah identified one action step. “If everyone would take a breath and take a pause when something typically would trigger them. If you go into that sacred pause and you just take a moment and choose love. When we pause instead of reacting, we come back into our heart and into our mind. And we basically say, ‘I see only love.’ So, the sacred pause is my little baby step that I’m pretty good at most days—and to see only love.”
Aaron said there’s definitely work to be done. “Let go and pray and let God do what he has to do. And of course, we do what we have to do and that starts a circle back that starts with us just to be more focused on peace within and then bring that out into the world.”
Jak has a plan for global peace. “I would like to see more scientific minds from different parts of the world, from different countries get together and start understanding how this planet operates and how we can really truly achieve peace.”
Barry Bettman offered another way. “It’s leading by example, setting an example instead of talking about it. Instead of the ‘Why is this all not working?’ to be the leader or the steward of peace. Take the step, take the breath, have the conversation with people as opposed to the rant-rant, rant-rant, ‘Why we don’t have it…’ Flip that 180 around.”Continue reading Share This:
