Hey!

I'm new here. I would like to ask each one of you, how do you focus on Love in your life daily?

I believe every revolution starts from within, as one can always successfully change oneself only;))
I try to be thankful for my blessings (and count them;)), recount the good things of each day at the end of it (possibly writing them down;)), and read Louise Hay every once in a while;))
She reminds me to forgive and be understanding!!

One of the things that re-connect me to Love and Life is going for a walk in Nature... Or reading an excellent book.

I try to be understanding and loving to people from different cultures or of different beliefs also!
And stay connected to old friends...

What do you all do??;))

Hi, i thought some of you in this community might be interested in my new community, wizened wigwam, which is intended as a rallying point for those who would change their own reality to bring about the paradigm shift. The purpose is multifold...Collapse )

So in all honesty this would probably make a better punk rock song than a poem, but I don't know how to play guitar so I can't really start a band so it stands alone. I just didn't want it to rot away in my notebook

Hey, im new to this community and it looks awesome. I'm an all-around anarchist looking to start a revolution and get some reform in our lives. The kind of issues I fight for are, Gay marriage, all around gay rights, the environment, child labor, world peace, against war, equality for all, and much more. You guys seem pretty cool, and I hope I fit in.

I was feeling really angry earlier about the elections, quite hopeless. Thinking we can't do things.

But we can do things! This is something i feel pretty strongly about and against and im going to stand up for my beliefs and not just sit around waiting for war to come over here, and just let America send all those people off to die.

*sighs* if only Gandhi and Martin Luther King were still alive...

"The truth of these words is beyond doubt, but the mission to which they call us is a most difficult one. Even when pressed by the demands of inner truth, men do not easily assume the task of opposing their government's policy, especially in time of war. Nor does the human spirit move without great difficulty against all the apathy of conformist thought within one's own bosom and in the surrounding world. Moreover, when the issues at hand seem as perplexed as they often do in the case of this dreadful conflict, we are always on the verge of being mesmerized by uncertainty; but we must move on."

"And some of us who have already begun to break the silence of the night have found that the calling to speak is often a vocation of agony, but we must speak. We must speak with all the humility that is appropriate to our limited vision, but we must speak..."

"Perhaps a new spirit is rising among us. If it is, let us trace its movements and pray that our own inner being may be sensitive to its guidance, for we are deeply in need of a new way beyond the darkness that seems so close around us."

-Martin Luther King


"You must be the change you wish to see in the world."

"You assist an evil system most effectively by obeying its orders and decrees.
An evil system never deserves such allegiance. Allegiance to it means partaking of the evil.
A good person will resist an evil system with his or her whole soul."

"When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love has always won. There have been tyrants and murderers and for a time they seem invincible but in the end, they always fall -- think of it, ALWAYS."

- Gandhi

Wow those words just seem so appropraite for me right now

Okay and now im peaceful, hopeful and calm

xoxo

Hey! Just joined, yeah it is a shame this community hasnt had any activity in over a month. I'll try and write in when i can.
I'm feeling really inspired today, maybe because in RE we were doing about Gandhi who is such an inspiration. When my teacher was speaking i could feel my skin crawling all over :p He's a big inspiration of mine, and i wish i could be more like him. I'm not a Hindu, im actually a Christian but very interested in the ahimsa side of Hinduism. And i'm all for peace, im just trying to control some of my thoughts and actions which i know aren't right.

Also really happy to see veganism is on the interests list here, because a lot of people forget that going vegan is one of the greatest things you can do to help animals and the environment .. and your body!!: http://www.veganoutreach.org/

Take care

Hi, my name is Eveline, 23 years old and from Norway. Just stumbled across this community, and I love the idea! Hoping that it will become more active.

*

Excerpt from Mister God, this is Anna (Fynn), p.28:

”Do you believe in God?”
“Yes”
“Do you know what God is?”
“Yes”
“What is God then?”
“He’s God!”
“Do you go to church?”
“No”
“Why not?”
“Because I know it all!”
“What do you know?”
“I know to love Mister God and to love people and cats and dogs and spiders and flowers and trees,” and the catalogue went on, “– with all of me.”

Carol grinned at me and Stan made a face and I hurriedly put a cigarette in my mouth and indulged in a bout of coughing. There’s nothing much you can do in the face of that kind of accusation, for that’s what it amounted to. (“Out of the mouths of babes…”). Anna had bypassed all the non-essentials and distilled centuries of learning into one sentence – “And God said love me, love them, and love it, and don’t forget to love yourself”.

I wish that this community was a bit more active because it truly is a brilliant idea. Cheers to the founder. Anyway, I know introduction posts get rather boring, especially where we are all here for the same reasoning. But, regardless, my name is Laura. Let's bring this discussion thing back to life.

George W. Bush is a criminal who murders innocent women and children on one side of the planet while pretending to defend the rights of unborn children to live. He has killed over 20,000 innocent, non-military men, women and children during his fraudulent war in Iraq. This blood is on the hands of every American tax payer as your money funded the murder. If you are a Christian, you will go to hell for this according to your dogma.

The rich republicans intentionally keep the middle and lower class poor. They don't want you to make money, they don't care if you live or die... they only care about their own power and all who vote republican are puppets. They know it and count on it... why don't you?

"It's also powerful and effective to do things in your home and community that reflect and inspire compassion. Tibetans developed many unique, cultural expressions of this kind. The prayer flags that you see in many photos and video images of Tibet and Nepal are one such cultural expresson. Tibetans would print their prayers of love and compassion on pieces o brightly colored cloth so that the breezes lifting the flags would pikc up the energy of their good intentions, blessing the animals and peple downwind. They viewed their country as a place where even the air reverberated with the relaxed energy of compassion. Stones everywhere were inscribed with the mantra of compassion, which also filled prayer wheels that could be turned by hand or by the power of water and wind. The idea was to have remiders of love and compassion everywhere, to insprie everyone to cultivate what was best in themselves."

Hello, since it is related to the themes of this community I thought I would let you all know about my new community, Angel TV, dedicated to the long-running, award winning television show Touched By An Angel. If you are interested, please join and spread the word. Thank you!

Ah, this is such a wonderful idea. To bad it's updated so rarely. This has a lot of potential, we need to expand it... And give it a bit more attention.
Admittedly, this is my first post, and as such, I am not one to talk. Calculus is my life right now.
However... I intend to become more active on this community now.
Yay...
Although, perhaps the dream of a non-partisan community, based around the idea of universal peace and love, is a bit too optimistic.
Can we ever really just get along?
Unless there is an interpersonal relationship between every single person, I don't see how such a universal love is possible.

My objective is not to convert but to convince. If you convince people they're absolutely and unconditionally loved, that will alter their behaviors. Christians have tried to convert people based on "If you don't convert, there is a customized torture chamber called hell that this God of love will send you to."

That I'd like to correct. You can't tell me God says to love my enemies and love those who hate me--but the same God says he'll smite people who offend or don’t love Him.

so. i have been reading a lot lately about the right and left and politics and whatnot, and i have decided that the best politics should be the politics of love. so instead of rallying about and number of issues that will just divide people, why not rally around love and tolerance, and once that becomes a universal trait in society, we can move on to other things....or possibly love will have taken care of everything by then?

so i created this community to discuss how to do some serious organizing, like religious and political organizations do. how can we make love cool?
