Today's challenges and crises show that it is not enough to have a "network" to flourish at the individual and the community levels. On the contrary, we must learn to transcend the barriers of "us" and "them" in order to truly prosper. The happiness of one, is the happiness of all. The discomfort of one is the discomfort of all. See what workshops we propose for companies and groups here.
Young people are the leaders of today. Why is it so important to involve as many youth as possible in order to change the world? What difference can they make and what insights can they give for building better societies? Explore here what workshops we propose for young people.
Children are the most precious treasures of our communities and we must cherish them. What can they teach us on the way we love and live? If the truth comes out from the children's mouths, let's make space for them and hear them out. See what workshops we offer for children here.
It sure is. LOVE is the most powerful weapon which you can use to transform the human heart. Today, more than ever, our world - and our hearts - need an instrument capable to heal the deep wounds caused by prejudices of all kinds. Love is the source of all things. Peace, Security, and Solidarity depend on it.
This picture was taken in the Holy Land when I served in the capacity of Deputy Secretary-General of the Baha'i International Community.
During my time there, I learned about the importance of the Power of Love: not only on paper but in reality, not only with religious people or politicians or journalists or activists or locals but with everyone.
We couldn't have been more different yet we still found ways to work together because we purposefully focused on what united us through respect, cooperation, and friendship.
Love is the only remedy that can bind our hearts together and teach us that should any difference arise amongst us, we can work on it for "difference is indeed the very essence of Humanity". It makes us surpass the goals we initially set and overcome the toughest challenges. It is the means of reciprocity and cooperation between people, regions, and nations. It nurtures friendship and trust and destroys bullying and fear. It is important to read one's reality, assess how to best use this powerful instrument, and build a "netlove" in a practical and uplifting way, so one transforms as well as its environment.
Pragmatism and realism are good, however, they should not be confused with cynicism and extreme relativism. We can see the glass half empty, but could we purposefully focus on the glass half full too? We can see many walls, but could we purposefully focus on bridges and ask ourselves what are the capacities, skills, and attitudes one needs to build bridges too?
There is never one way to read reality. The truth however is one: that we, humans, are all endowed with dignity and rights, with a conscience which, when dedicated to serving our needs and the needs of the people we live with, through cooperation and unity, not without its own challenges, of course, will still be fulfilled beyond any expectations.
I wish for our common shared humanity to transform hate into love, frustration into compassion, war into peace, despair into hope, selfishness into solidarity, enmity into friendship, and most importantly, network into netlove!
To serve our fellow human beings is our greatest privilege and a safe path where darkness can be turned into light. May we all diffuse the Light of Love for all who may cross our paths!
“You are the generation that will be leading in the new century and the new millennium, so the challenge is to make sure that your influence is used to ensure that the entire world learns that Humanity transcends difference, that difference is indeed the very essence of Humanity."
