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.”
Elaine Christine concurs, “There’s always room for improvement and it’s good to look and see if there’s any blocks to sending love to what’s taking our peace. The love really will dis-solve the problems. And so, I encourage you to continue to work on any blocks that are standing in the way from allowing the love to flow.”
What was your takeaway from the call? Samarah Daniels said, “I really appreciated what Jak said about the planet. It’s just a wonderful reminder that everything is here for us, but it is the time of rebalancing and so the first balancing act I need is right here and then it can extend out from there. And I’m also was very happy with what Barry said about walking in the woods and just being rejuvenated. So, I’ve very, very much enjoyed what everyone has said and Aarons comments about not responding in kind again, remind me to just take a breath. So, thank you, thank you.”
When asked what he learned on the World Peace Telesummit, Aaron Dill noted, “What Jak said about the balance in nature because I haven’t really thought about that very deeply about the laws of nature and basically being be able to work with them. Those laws and certainly it comes to my mind how easy it is for one little thing to get out of balance. What Samarah said about focusing on, we have to focus on us first peace beginning from here and then spreading out and branching out from us, to be that conduit.”
Jak Bicaci summed up his favorite part, “I think everyone has really good ideas, very inspiring ideas and I’m enjoying every word everyone is saying because it really stimulates my thoughts that I should do something with my understanding of what’s going on and start communicating with people that are very knowledgeable and take their knowledge towards peace and understanding peace and achieving peace. For me, as much as I believe in God and I understand God, I think I feel like I also have to do something. I mean praying is just not enough. Praying opens the path to travel but you have to travel, you cannot just sit back and just keep praying and hope everything is going to happen. What I’m getting out of this meeting is an inspiration to take action.”
Barry Bettman also weighed in on the value. “We look at the pieces P.I.E.C.E.S., the individual things, the stuff. And it’s to focus on peace, on the love. I don’t think there’s enough of this action. This conversation for the last hour is not an everyday conversation and so for me it’s making it an everyday conversation asking that question. Experience having a conversation asking, ‘I see you seem tweaked. What if you were peaceful, what does peace look like?’ Ask the questions. So, for me, it’s taking it away of the focus from the shutdown, the constriction, to the openness, love, to God, the possibility of helping mankind. We’re only here for give or take 100 years depending. So, it goes way too quick.”
Elaine Christine acknowledged, “Well, for me as always, it is a blessing to have my favorite friends come together with a meaningful conversation, a deep conversation. My take away is that like Jak and I think what Samarah is already doing is gathering a tribe of people and inspiring them. So, that’s one of the things that I would like to share with you is a link to my YouTube channel: https://bit.ly/drelainechristine. That is my contribution that I will have a show for people and maybe we just go through these six steps and see who we can inspire.”
Elaine offered the closing prayer, “Thank you, God, for this time together and all of those who are connected on this call. We are grateful for your goodness, Lord Jesus. As we repent, we ask for your grace, mercy, and love to help us create a compassionate and more peaceful world. In your service, Amen.”
