The struggle is real.
And so is the solution.
Every pageant contestant can tell us about how they value world peace. It's a simple cause to advocate because it is of universal concern - excepting, of course the fanatics out there.
We're thinking globally, but want for ways to act locally.
And let's think very locally --- very micro.
I was washing dishes this morning when I felt like I needed a sandblaster to clean one plate. With each revolution of my hand, I grumbled. I complained. I cursed the stuck-on bits of food.
I noticed that it felt like I was massaging my plate.
The motion of my hand changed as the context of this chore changed. I became mindful. I became relaxed. I became. I was the focused Karate Kid of dish washing.
The work is going to always need to be done. I learned a great deal about how an attitude can change things.
Maybe instead of let there be peace on Earth...
Let there be a global attitude adjustment, and let it begin with me. [Smile]
