Hi White Tiger, Yes it is worth it although I think the kingdom of heaven is already here only most haven't found it yet. Jesus said the kingdom of heaven is within and that is true. No matter what is happening in the outer world you already posess the kingdom of heaven within yourself and it can be accessed through the Holy Spirit. If you get this right no matter what misery is going on in this world we live in you at least will be at peace for you and your father God will be one.
As for peace and goodville in the world and towards all men and nations now that is a lot more difficult and we shall experiance that when we have all found the kingdom of heaven within. That's when the so called second comming of Christ shall be here and it wont make any differance what religion you are or even if you have one. All are equal and deserving of love in the eyes of God.

I believe it would need to be helping people to live in total honesty. A realization that as they harm others they are as well harming themselves. Every time we feel like harming another in some way either behind his/her back or in front we are separating ourselves from that person. This seems not so bad but actually it is like cutting off a branch from the tree. That branch withers and dies without being connected to the tree.
There is a saying that no one can survive as an island alone in his self. The more we cut ourselves off and show that we can not be trusted, the less we are trusted until we have ousted ourselves from humanity. That is why there is another saying that it is lonely at the top. It wouldn't be lonely if the one at the top showed honesty and trustworthiness on the way up.
The next thing is a desire for everyone to be well off, not only the self, but all. Instead of complaining about people, pray for them, instead of worrying about people, pray for them. Rejoice over the neighbor's good fortune as if it were your own good fortune. As we do this we eliminate the spirits of envy and jealousy. This opens the way for our good fortune to come and the feeling of being worthy of receiving it.
Every time we feel wronged pray for those that wronged us and know that it will be made up and more unto us it will return if we trust and keep faith. That we all see God as our source, not other people or the world so that we know we will always do well, everyone.
That we always let our actions come through an expression of love as if we were serving Jesus how would we treat him in this situation? To do this we need to see things from "How would I feel if this were me?" "How would I want to be treated if this were me?" After asking these questions we then treat the people with that compassion, kindness and respect that we would like to be treated with if it were us in these situations.
it may be when enough of us
when the spirit awakens
