This magnificent initiative was created by the British film director Jeremy Gilley, proving all those wrong, who fall in despair over the state of our world, and not becoming creative by finding ways in which to help, believing that no “one individual” is capable of changing anything. This is a dangerous psychological trap we tend to fall into, when “forgetting” the underlying link we all share with our fellow Humans – a trap, being utilized by those who came to destroy and divide, rather than to heal and unite.
At times it does seem that we are doomed to walk the path of life on our own, as solitary sufferers in a world of neglected souls, a world, the condition of which is a precise reflection of the state that our collective Human mind is in, a world, in which conflicting energies constantly rage against each other, making us (seemingly) drift apart, thus allowing our souls to fall asleep. --- But wake up! To create a choir every voice is needed. To write a symphony every single note is important and necessary. Was not Jesus “one individual”, was not Martin Luther King “one individual”, was not Gandhi “one individual”? Did not all those individuals, unwilling to succumb to narrow-minded materialism, instead fighting for the cause of Love, start out on their own? And yet, in a broader historical context, over time they have in fact formed a timeless “Army in Spirit”, which we all should join in order to heal this world, rather than damage it further. This is the task we all share, which therefore unites us already! – (The task especially for those who seek and cannot find their personal “purpose in life”).
This is the deeper meaning of the global challenge facing us: To grow together through the need to work together in a true global sense, in order to overcome the truly global problems we share in this world. Let us not forget: Peace is not a “final goal” in itself, but a prerequisite, and thus only a first step on the way to a happy world society one day. To heal this world in a combined effort is the purpose we all have in common, regardless of race, gender, religion or age - presenting us (for the first time in history) with a truly world-wide challenge (and at the same time opportunity) to create a world as it was meant to be, a United World in the true sense of the word, in which ONE Humankind exists in ONENESS with itself and Creation.
Please support this unique initiative in any way You can. Presenting the countries taking part in this year’s event on the PEACE ONE DAY website, Mr. Gilley asks in particular for help regarding a few countries, not yet on the list. (A list, growing with astounding speed). >> Unite The World
"We must make every effort for the promotion of peace and inner values. I fully support Peace One Day" His Holiness, The Dalai Lama, Nobel Peace Laureate
"I think this is a great idea. Any moment where there is a day or a week that we can give the combatants to pause, to think, and reflect on what they are doing to their own people and to the environment will be a great achievement and I will support it 100%... individuals can make a difference and if each of us did our bit collectively we will make a major contribution."
Secretary-General United Nations Kofi Annan
"If you build a house you start with one brick. If we want to build peace why not start with one day... and that day has arrived."
