WHAT IS MY ROLE IN CREATING A MORE EQUITABLE, PEACEFUL WORLD?
My role in creating a peaceful world (more then it is) is to be a PEACEFUL WARRIOR myself. As peaceful warrior I harness:
acceptance not judgement,
relaxed not rushing nor pressuring
Currently, supporting one or two organizations who are on the front lines in that quest with occasional donations when it moves me. It’s a step up from mere good intentions, but I could be going much further.
I would hope that equity and peace are hard baked into me and most people. I could devote more time to being helpful to others in that cause. The pandemic has slowed me down in doing something about it. At a bigger level I either take to a leadership/political role; or I vote for those who value equity and peace. Voting is the way I go; I’ve no interest in the former.
I don´t know, but all peace begins with being peaceful inside first, as several already have mentioned, and that looking at and experiencing all other living beings as equitable kindred people, as well as animals and plants is a prerequisite for peace, and work in progress in so many as in myself also. To help to let go of comparing, of jealousy, of envy and other emotions hindering to experience peace and happiness then might be an option, and so to be the peace we want to see in this world.
Practice being peace.
Be a reasonable person.
Keep my cool and be chill. Be nice to others. Be mindful of how I’m feeling at all times. Appreciate the important people in my life.
Trying not to be angry!
I must be peaceful myself. Not quickly react to things I disagree with, but letting the moment settle. Breathe.
To teach my students to express empathy and understanding, to validate others through active listening
Speaking truth where ever possible. Even when i’m afraid it won’t be acceptable.
My role is to be peace. To exude peace & love in all I do & all I say. ❤️🙏
In permaculture there is the concept of zones: household, frequently visited area, and circles on outward like ripples on a surface, and this came to mind when I read the question today. So my response becomes:
An equitable, peaceful world begins with myself. How could I help create a more equitable, peaceful world if I am not peaceful in my own heart? From there my role is to be peaceful and equitable in my marriage, my family, my circle of friends, my community, and on outward.
First comes love, carbon neutrality, and social justice, in circles radiating from a peaceful, harmonious center. I will “walk my talk” to get there.
Thanks Holly. Beautiful …
My role is to teach children to be more equitable and accepting of each other. To teach them to try and understand why people make the decisions they do – so we can come to the relationships from understanding and compassion and not judgment. My role is to treat those around me with respect and care – and for myself, to try an understand them. Role modeling understanding, compassion and acceptance is truly the only control that I have.
