Greetings and love to all.
'The Love Alliance is an alliance of individuals and organisations who believe that all of our actions, policies and institutions must be based on love and inner security.
We believe that all our words, actions and policies must enhance and empower people, society and planet; that everything we think, say and do should make the world a better place and leave people, planet and society better than they were before.
In practice this means finding a healthy balance in all our activities between our material needs and our spiritual needs.
The Love Alliance believes that it is this practice and this balance, as opposed to the endless pursuit of money and material things, that will bring us lasting happiness, individually and collectively.
The Love Alliance has no programme. The World will change from being a fear based world to being a love based world simply because more and more people who believe what we believe are forming alliances.'
Meanings of love:
~ Love is an inspired form of giving.
~ Love is patient; love is kind, love is not jealous or boastful; it is not arrogant or rude. Love does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrong, but rejoices in the right. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
~ Love is extending our self for the sake of our own or another’s growth.
~ Love is wanting the best for others and ourselves and seeking it.
~ Love is warmth, affection and devotion.
~ Love is a deep, tender, ineffable feeling of affection and solicitude towards each other arising from consciousness of kinship, recognition of attractive qualities, and a sense of underlying oneness.
~ Love is a strong positive emotion of regard and affection for each other.
~ Love is an illuminated way of seeing each other and the universe, both the known and the unknown.
"Spirituality is a concept most people - even the non-religious - have a sense of. There are many ways in which individuals and groups define the concept, my definition is an amalgamation of various definitions I have come across in my life to date and is this: ‘values that maximize love and kindness, generosity and compassion, ecological and ethical behaviour, that enhance our capacities to respond to other human beings as inherently (and not just instrumentally) valuable, and to respond to the universe with awe, wonder and radical amazement at the grandeur of all that is. It is a true appreciation of the intrinsic interconnectedness of everything. Spiritual needs are those such as needs for conceptual knowledge, self-esteem, education and art: these values are spiritual in the sense that they primarily pertain to consciousness, and contribute to survival by helping reason to function properly.’" - MEE
The concept of The Love Alliance is very simple because life is as simple or as complex as we choose to make it.
It is tangible and reasonable that the vast majority of the world’s people want to live in peace and harmony with each other and with the planet.
Human experience shows that collective focused energy, action and will, can build, create and produce a desired outcome.
The Love Alliance provides that focus for a critical mass which will induce a tipping point to change the world for the better.
The Love Alliance is an intentional and conscious global movement.
