The six-step Peace Process was inspired in 1998 after Dr. Christine 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. Christine 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!”
Participants used their imagination to envision world peace. Rose Jabbour said, “I see that people are being responsible for themselves. They are not projecting blame on anybody else. They work on clearing up their own inner conflict, coming from a place of love and compassion. When you come from love and compassion, there’s peace.”
Tracy Ann shared her vision, “I envision every individual lighthearted and happy and full of peace. And when you are full of peace, you’re joyful and you spread joy and love to other people. It’s pretty simple. I think if we started with our own self, hopefully we get the ripple effect, and it just keeps going out and out and out. That’s my vision. I do that empowerment envision at night. I go all the way out and just cover the whole Earth in love and light.”
Aaron Dill concurred, “I agree with peace starting within ourselves first and being more peaceful and calm and focusing on that at the end of the day, because then you can start your day in the morning more refreshed.”
Tom Gorsuch contributed, “I hadn’t really thought about it before, but in terms of if the military is in an area to add stability, it can actually be a peace force. And to the extent that we can share resources or help people who are hungry or less fortunate than us, we can create more equilibrium. And those things are necessary for peace.”
To bring about his vision, Tom identified one action step. “One thing that everyone in the world can do is to find peace within themselves. The power of everyone is much greater than the power of any one individual. So, it’s a pretty simple concept. Everyone can control their own peacefulness. And if we can get everyone to understand that, then you would achieve world peace, it seems. I know I try and practice that in my life, so that’s my plan.”
When asked to share the value of the World Peace Telesummit, Denise Specht noted, “It was good to hear that we all need to work on inner peace for everyone to have world peace. It’s going to take some time and work and effort. This was just a wonderful opportunity to feel a little bit more at peace in just a short amount of time.”
Rose Jabbour offered what she learned on the call. “Well, for one, it’s interesting to hear everybody else’s point of view and to hear where we meet on common ground. And just to be able to share and to get some insights and have some inspiration in moving forward.”
Tracy Ann summed up her experience. “It’s really good to be in cyberspace here with like-minded people. It’s very valuable. Peacemakers like all of us learning from one another. I think there is great value in this, in our Telesummit here. Two thumbs up, Elaine!”
Barry Bettman added, “For me, I feel the shift in my heart in the last number of minutes from looking at the early perspectives of war and shifting it and talking through and being present to the conversation, the song. I feel different. I can intellectualize this from now to whatever, but to me, when the shift happens from inside, I think we share it more with other people. We talk about the tipping point and the six million or six billion. It’s having a feeling change. In this moment, I’ve got more hope. So, I’m thankful.”
Elaine Christine concluded, “Let’s take a moment to bow our heads in prayer. Thank you, God for this time together and for those who are connected on this call. We are grateful for your goodness God, and we ask your grace, mercy, and love on our lives to help us create a healthy, prosperous, and peaceful world. Amen.”
