It is amazing how connections happen! The story below illustrates this point and explains how the "Love and Peace to the Whole World" bumper stickers made their way to Kazakhstan in October 2010. Here is what was shared by my new found friend, Jeffrey Peters, in a talk he gave at The World Forum on Spiritual Culture in Kazakhstan."I have a story to tell you. So please listen carefully because you might be the person I am looking for to Co-Create this New World Community of Love and Peace. My story begins in the spiritual capitol of Mexico – the valley of Tepoztlan, Morelos.On the morning of April 21, 2001, I was doing my morning meditation when two morning doves swooped down over my head and sat down in front of me on a stone wall, and began singing their Love Song – “Love You, Me Too – Love You, Me Too”. I interpreted that event as a sign that god was sending me the holy spirit of God’s Love.I believe that God has a plan for each one of us, and from that moment on I became a new ambassador of God’s Love.The story continues on August 15, 2009 when I woke up with a neon colored message from God which said: Create with me a New World Community of Love and Peace. So I began writing down the basics of this concept in the form of a one page press release. (inserted below). . . We return now to our story. In August of 2010, I saw a bumper sticker on a parked car that said: “Love and Peace to the Whole World”. (JBP shows the bumper sticker.) So I said to myself, this is great! I am not alone. Someone else has the same idea and made a bumper sticker. I found the owner of the car, and asked her, “who did the bumper sticker?” and she said John McCarthy from Boston. You can reach him via the website on his bumper sticker: www.people4motherearth.org. So I called John, and we became soul brothers, and his website became the website for A New World Community of Love and Peace.So now, you- my audience at the World Forum on Spiritual Culture – become a part of this story. Would you like to Co-Create a New World Community of Love and Peace? Do you, or anybody you know, have the financial resources to help this dream become a reality? With so much hatred and war in this world, would you prefer Love and Peace? You, the people, can make this happen. Greet each other now with Love and Peace, and pass it on. Do it now “Love and Peace”, and pass it on!
A New World Community
Who, What, Where, and Why
What? What do I mean by “A New World Community?” I mean a New World Community of Love and Peace for everyone, everywhere. We want the words Love and Peace; on your lips as you greet one another. We want “Love and Peace” on the top of your mind, and in the bottom of your heart.
Where? In the hearts and minds of all people, worldwide.
In Tepoztlan, the spiritual capitol of Mexico.
Why? Why do suicide bombers kill themselves in order to kill others? There are many possibilities. Probably the most basic reason is that they feel their own life is not worth living, and they want the foreign invaders to leave their home country. Perhaps they do not have a job and their family needs money, and their “mentors” promise money for their family. And perhaps at their core, they do not love themselves nor have they received unconditional love from anyone, and their leaders promise them love in the “hereafter”.
A beautiful song reminds us - “What the world needs now is love, sweet love, it’s the only thing that there’s just too little of”. “What the world needs now is love, sweet love, no, not just for some but for everyone”. Love for suicide bombers before, that’s right, before they destroy themselves and us. If potential suicide bombers received genuine love here on earth, they might not kill themselves to receive possible love in the “hereafter.” There can be no peace without love. Love first, then peace.
Invitation: I have an Invitation for you – as one of God’s Ambassadors of Love, I invite you to co-create with me “A New World Community of Love and Peace”- will you step forward and help me? If you want to participate, please see me at the end of my Remarks. Or contact me with your feedback, comments, and suggestions for this work in progress – my email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Music: What might be the music of a New World Community of Love and Peace? The music could be: Dvo_ák’s “New World Symphony,” “All You Need is Love,” by the Beatles, Beethoven’s “Joy Theme,” John Lennon’s “Imagine,” Michael Jackson’s “We Are The World,” and “Dona Nobis Pacem.”
