Setting aside a few moments once a day at a specific time to meditate for world peace in unison multiplies everyone's effort.
In this cause and effect world what we think and do causes a reaction in kind. Thoughts of caring followed by caring actions set the ball rolling for creating peace and harmony in our personal life, multiplied many times over by group effort.
An analogy to this effect that I like is thinking about how much energy is produced by a large waterfall, compared to water flowing from a single spring.
The group meditation specifics:
Here in The Netherlands I begin the meditation for world peace at 8pm DST or ST (Daylight Savings Time, or Standard Time) according to the time of the year.
Other time zones that coincide, listed in DST or ST:
8pm Berlin, Germany
7pm Great Britain
2pm Eastern Time, U.S.A.
1pm Central Time, U.S.A.
12pm Mountain Time, U.S.A.
11am Pacific Time, U.S.A.

Two ways to meditate for world peace wherever you are:
1. Visualize a peaceful and uplifting scene.
2. Mentally recite a short prayer for world peace:
"May everyone become aware
That creating peace takes kindness and care."
Let's meditate as one large and expressive group mind, making an impressive effort toward world peace!
