"Love makes the world go round." "All you need is love." "Love is the answer."
Certainly, love seems to be an essential part of life. So what exactly is it? And are there 'different kinds of love'? Interesting to consider that the difference may come when love is conditional, and that truly unconditional love has only one expression: pure benevolence.
This initiative is designed to exponentially increase expressions of benevolence in the world. It is a movement based on the spiritual truth that goodness is innate, and that by cultivating a spiritual awareness of the self, we can tap into this inherent goodness in a way that makes us capable of generating unlimited acts of goodness.
Goodness = benevolence, which is literally good will. We develop our capacity of good will through expressing good wishes towards ourselves and others; as much as possible. And the first and foremost good wish is one we have for the self, one that acknowledges our spiritual identity.
This initiative gives us access to our innate goodness in a way that is powerful, sustainable and independent of what is going on around us. As we face increasing turmoil and uncertainty in the world, maintaining a cool head and an open heart is becoming more and more challenging. This is about meeting that increasingly overwhelming stress, sorrow and violence with an exponential, ripple effect of care and compassion.
