It is quite interesting being an Australian living in the United States while the presidential primaries are taking place. Not only do I find it mindboggling that they have people on the same side of politics saying horrendous things about each other, but unbelievably, Donald Trump is the Republican candidate. Wow!
The only thing I really know about Trump is that he owns the Miss Universe pageant.
And this got me thinking.
Is there any common ground between a beauty pageant and the Oval Office?
I believe there is one.
It is what every beauty queen wants and hopefully it is one of the key goals of whoever calls the White House home.
But should we be leaving world peace solely up to the beautiful and powerful people?
Can we start creating world peace in our own lives?
I believe we can by following the Three Action Steps To World Peace.
One – Be kind to a stranger
I am a strong believer that helping or being kind to a stranger makes happy homes. Kindness can change the course of someone’s day, and that changed course can have a rippling effect on many people’s lives that day.
We don’t expect strangers to help us and when they do we are taken aback, there is instant gratitude and a beautiful moment occurs as we connect as humans.
Wars are created by disconnect, so the more connections we can generate the better.
Two – Spend more time in nature
Nature allows us to focus on the simple beauty of life. Look at a flower and see how each petal is connected, the height of trees and how they stand for so many years, the ocean as the waves crash on the sand, always trying to reach that little bit higher up the beach.
When we simplify our thoughts and look for the beauty in the simple things in life, our desire to want decreases.
Wars are created on wants, so the less we want the better.
Three – Roll on the ground with a dog
This is what I call the “Wagging Tail Syndrome”. When you see a dog wag its tail you know it is happy. Happiness is like a drug and as humans we are drawn in, as we want some of that happiness to rub off on us, and it does. The harder the tail wags the larger the smile on our face gets.
We leave the dog with a huge smile, and our smile is contagious. If someone looks at us with a genuine smile on their face, our natural reaction is to smile back. The Wagging Tail Syndrome passes smiles and happiness between people.
I promise you, it is impossible to be angry when you are playing with a dog.
Happy people never start wars, so the happier people are the better.
We are all beautiful and we have the power. Start creating world peace in your daily life: Live immediately.
