2017

Welcome Dear Friends to Global Love Day 2017,

We gather around the world this day to celebrate as one humanity on this planet. We know with clarity and deep understanding that each life form is precious and a part of the whole. Nature sings this wisdom with us every moment during the sunshine days and the twinkle of the starlit night. This is our heritage and our destiny, from ancient days gone by to unimaginable futures that await our loving creation.

Our individual and collective journey is a part of life that is forever interconnected and interdependent from the smallest subatomic vibration to a cosmos so vast that we can barely conceive its grandness. Cycles upon cycles nourish and cultivate our evolving awareness as we learn from aspects of our reality that remind us how we all share in the Universal bond of love.

Each of us is on a magnificent personal adventure exploring the depths of our creative potential while continuously interacting with one another and the world around us. This shared expression encourages us to build a foundation on the simple realization that love begins with self-acceptance and forgiveness. With this fundamental vision, we evolve and grow together with harmony, dignity and grace.

Inherent in our mutual and collaborative experience is the necessary insight that with respect and compassion we embrace diversity. Through variety, we bring fresh perspectives and rich meaning to our lives as we absorb and blend the many components of ever expanding possibilities into our colorful palette of creation.

As with any creation, challenges may proliferate for a time as we continue to lay the cornerstones of a kinder, gentler world for countless generations yet to arrive and add their special gifts. By acknowledging that each of us is a powerful force for good and that love begins with me, we will manifest the appropriate solutions simply because together we make a difference through love.

In gratitude and peace, I extend a warm welcome to everyone on this, our fourteenth celebration of Global Love Day.

Love, light and peace,

Welcome Dear Friends to Global Love Day 2016,

Like a sparkling sunrise beckoning us to explore our boundless potential, a fresh new beginning is emerging on our exquisite earth. Around the world our collective heartbeat is starting to pulse in unison, ushering in the timeless reminder that we are one humanity on this planet. We are linking across the globe in ways we never dreamed of, while simultaneously connecting to our very own heart center at a depth never imagined.

These inner and outer connections are synchronizing at a pace that seem to defy our comprehension and yet, day-by-day we are rising to this call of love. The quantum simplicity is in the knowing that all life is interconnected and interdependent and that the choices we make in our thoughts and feelings affect the whole. We are realizing we have the power to change the very fabric of life by the way we choose to live, and when we share in the universal bond of love, all life benefits.

We are here today to celebrate this loving essence that flows through each of us, igniting our combined creativity and ingenuity. With courage and strength, and through self-acceptance and forgiveness, we are healing generations gone by and those yet to come. We are building the foundation for our children so that they may walk a path of peace, grace and harmony, in ways we never have.

It is with the utmost respect and compassion that we embrace the diversity that makes us all unique. Our grand tapestry is woven with infinite colors and each strand is vital and equally essential. We are turning on our inner light and revealing the ever-changing kaleidoscope of brilliant possibilities and allowing the collaborative nature of our being to come forth.

We are making a difference through love. This is clearly evident, especially when we recognize it is our own heart beating, expanding and embracing the world around us. This is our gift to life; being a presence of love right where we are.

With gratitude for your courage to share your love so beautifully, I welcome you to our thirteenth celebration of Global Love Day.

Welcome Dear Friends to Global Love Day 2015,

As we come together around the world on this extraordinary day, we celebrate the unifying love that connects us all. Our collective chorus is beginning to sing the timeless remembrance that we are one humanity on this planet. In a song that is being written from our hearts, each of us is powerfully and profoundly adding our voice to this beautiful harmony.

With every passing moment we are witnessing an emerging shared realization that all life is interconnected and interdependent and that by collaborating in the spirit of unity and oneness, we create a whole new melody in tune with our greater nature. Gone are the days where we accept the din of separation and division as a way of perception and demarcation. In its place we are embracing and sharing the Universal bond of love that has always been the fundamental and inherent way of the uni-verse: our one song.

This orchestration of an evolving awareness does not come without effort on our part. In order to compose a sustained rhythm for a peaceful humankind, we are comprehending that love begins with me through self acceptance and forgiveness. From this place of understanding, we easily resonate with respect and compassion and joyfully embrace diversity. Building upon this solid foundation, all things are indeed possible.

A symphony is always greater than the sum of its parts and ours is rapidly bringing together a magnificent vibration in full measure. Heart-to-heart we are expressing our deep desire to live consciously, creatively and harmoniously with one another and our precious earth. Through integrity, dignity, kindness and consideration, we are resonating together once again and are making a remarkable difference through love.

Welcome Dear Friends to Global Love Day 2014,

We live upon an amazingly beautiful planet with a precious and beloved humanity. Coming together this day, we celebrate our heart-centered goodness and kindness that connects each of us around the world as one. United in love, we join as individuals, communities and nations, to express our mutual joy for life – the essence of our vision for Global Love Day each May 1st as a symbol of living with love every day.

As we all share in this Universal bond of love, we are becoming increasingly aware of our presence upon this marvelous orb we call home. We are rapidly appreciating our innate responsibility as caretakers and guardians of life in all its diverse forms and realize that through us, the planet will flourish or decline. The choice is up to each of us; for indeed love begins with me.

Interconnected and interdependent, we are rising to the occasion and making a difference through love. Through self acceptance and mutual forgiveness we are laying our foundation to provide the best possible opportunities for a thriving and sustainable earth that will benefit countless generations to come. With courage, integrity, harmony and dignity, we nourish and bestow our legacy of love from which others will blossom and expand upon.

From compassion and respect, we willingly and naturally embrace the diversity that makes our world an astonishing kaleidoscope of opportunity and potential. Learning from one another enriches our experience beyond measure and delights the very center of our collective soul. Life is infinitely vast and varied and every aspect, particle, and manifestation is profound and exquisitely essential.

An awakening heart has its challenges as we readily release the limitations, outmoded beliefs, structures and limitations that no longer serve. Yet in these transformative moments, we realize that who we are becoming through love is worth every effort as we birth a new reality that enlivens all.

With deep gratitude and love, I welcome you to our eleventh celebration of Global Love Day.

2013

Welcome Dear Friends to Global Love Day 2013,

Just a brief ten years ago we launched a simple idea that holds profound potential – celebrating our humanity through unconditional love on this symbolic day that we call Global Love Day. Today we bear witness to the beautiful response from countless individuals like you in every nation and culture who are bringing life to this vision by embodying and sharing love each and every day.

A new world is being born that ensures the destiny of our children will be one that is filled with integrity, dignity, diversity, harmony, prosperity and compassion. One-by-one and heart-to-heart we are laying this foundation with our own love for the benefit of generations yet to come. Bridging the days of old, we understand the value of forgiveness and self acceptance as being the cornerstone of our personal effort. Love truly does begin with me.

With each successive year, we are rapidly experiencing the realization that we are interconnected and interdependent and always have been. We comprehend that this precious planet is our home and, as a collective humanity, we are its custodians. What we do for one, we do for all, including ourselves. Together, we are uniting and making a difference through love.

Traditions, obligations and beliefs are transforming into viable pathways and solutions that are inclusive and acknowledge the common good for everyone. Alas, this does not always come easy or without challenge; however with courage, wisdom, respect and perseverance, we are taking the necessary steps knowing we are the ones responsible for this unfolding journey.

I extend my personal gratitude to each of you for sharing this vision with us these many years and for consciously making this a better world for all. With deep appreciation and love, I welcome you to our tenth celebration of Global Love Day.

Unconditional love is how we make a positive difference and in unison we are carefully laying the foundation from which a new world is born. This emerging world honors our ancestors while nourishing and nurturing future generations yet to come.

2011

Welcome Dear Friends to Global Love Day 2011,

As we gather together on this symbolic day, we acknowledge and celebrate our universal humanity while sharing the song of our common heartbeat. This is a profound and spectacular moment to be alive as both participant and witness to an amazing transformation and return to love on our precious planet.

The vastness of our world is rapidly becoming more intimate and we are quickly realizing the complexity of life can only be resolved through the simplicity of love. This love does not depend on words as it is readily felt from heart to heart. It is experienced in the forgiveness and compassion we offer to others and the self acceptance we give ourselves. Respect, honor and dignity are the immediate and lasting impression while the ultimate expression is in the smallest gestures of kindness that change the destiny for so many.

We are the weavers of this love and are also intricately woven into the very fabric of life itself. Our magnificent earth is a living example of this innate and natural love and it is our great fortune to be the stewards and examples of unconditional love towards all living things. Coming together like a grand tapestry, our diverse interconnectedness and interdependence is the very thing that unites us as one.

We all share a common, universal bond of amazing potential through love and each of us makes a profound difference just by being who we are. The ideas we entertain in our consciousness today are the seeds of a future yet to be made. And when love is the key component of each thought and feeling, a truly beautiful world is born.

This time is not without extraordinary challenges as we move forward, yet love endures the most difficult circumstances and still remains as love. There is great strength in intimacy, incredible opportunity with courage, and, as we lead by the example of love, we walk together with all.

Welcome everyone to our eighth anniversary celebration of Global Love Day.

Thanks to your courage and unyielding determination, unconditional love is being felt as more than just a possibility; it is becoming a reality as it stirs in the consciousness of everyone.

Our core vision for this day continues to guide us on our adventure as we once again awaken our heart. Simply stated: we are one humanity on this planet - all life is interconnected and interdependent - all share in the Universal bond of love - love begins with self acceptance and forgiveness - with tolerance and compassion we embrace diversity - and together we make a difference with love.

These are not mere idle words; they are a grand potential and road map to bring joyful change in a world that has mostly forgotten its own heritage. When we embody and radiate their meaning as part of our personal way of life, we become beacons of love where others can find comfort and understanding, kindness and consideration.

2004

Welcome to the First Annual Global Love Day.

As we gather in our hearts in every nation and in every land, we come together as a beautiful reflection of love. This day is a symbol that love unites us all.
Today, we join hands and hearts as we begin to listen to the rhythm of life and the song of love. We turn our attention to the love within and watch as it quietly restores balance and presents the solutions to the problems we seem to face.

We honor this day as we acknowledge we are one humanity upon this planet. We realize once again we are interconnected and interdependent and that we all share in the Universal bond of love. We remind ourselves love must begin with self acceptance and forgiveness and that when we share our tolerance and compassion we embrace diversity. On this day and every day we make a difference through love.

We dwell in the present moment, accept our past and let our future unfold. We gaze upon each other and see ourselves. We open our hearts and allow love to flow. We look around and see beauty instead of shame, wisdom instead of ignorance, grace where there once was fear. We set aside our differences and accept our oneness. On this day and every day we make a difference through love.

Now is the time for us to heal, to forgive and to love. It is our moment to recall we are all in it together and there is no real separation between us. We all laugh, we all cry and we all love. Our thoughts, feelings, words and actions are felt by everyone. Our real strength and power is when we come from unconditional love. This may be the first Global Love Day, yet in our hearts we can live this way every day.

Perhaps we begin a new day upon this wondrous planet, a day that history will record as the return of love… the day we remembered each other as a global family.
