ACTIVISTS OR LOBBYISTS?

ACTIVISTS OR LOBBYISTS?
We have highly positioned bureaucrats, Celebrities, ‘brand managers’ etc. Who call themselves or are called activists, when they are obviously promoting the evil system some of us are trying to fight against, their benefits packages look like those of corrupt Senators in Nigeria, and their social impact is zero. Their actions are counter-productive. Activists must be real rather than be the None Principled Activist who is cosmetically involved in activism.Social action entails seeking truth and speaking truth. That means being honest to the facts, finding out realities; being open to inquiry into the facts; challenging and speaking truth to power. Real activists are always striving for lasting change through a heart-felt, holistic framework of hard work, dedication, empathy and love. Working for good entails integrity, a commitment to the process, interconnectedness, and a love for all beings. Activists have a unique and powerful role to play in the unfolding of peace and justice.

BECOMING WHOLE
We all know the countries, corporations and political leaders that need war to stay united, in power and in profit. These war profiteers seek to propagate fear and perpetuate an existential threat, so that we support the proliferation of ever more weapons to protect us from a permanent, ever-present enemy. Given my specific life circumstances; I often ask myself, what meaningful actions can I take to make the biggest impact on peace in the world? Therefore, what is my role? thumbs up to pacifist A.J. Muste’s well-known quote, “There is no way to peace. Peace is the way.” What this means to me is that peace activism entails looking inward. If there’s a war going on inside of you — addiction, depression, or self-loathing et al — you must fight back your inner conflict first before you’re truly in a position to spread peace to others. Real peace will come only when we all find peace within ourselves and we conquer hatred. I discover for myself the true nature of war and peace in the world.
Peace activism today goes beyond taking to the streets in anger to rage against the system, it’s about finding peace from within and then sharing that peace with others through inspired action that is meaningful to you.
As a 21st century peace activist i search beyond how others construe the current state of the world, and define it for myself. It’s an authentic path of inner growth and discovery where i hold in my heart that if i choose peace in my life, the world will follow. I choose to live my mission, and to achieve the most within that mission. Importantly, my work is to further humanity’s evolution in the direction of progressive values of peace, love and harmony; to create more of the values, including justice, equality and freedom, which make life worth living. Nature gifts me with light every day in bright and shining love, a service my soul is searching for- to give birth to the great things and let them grow for humanity is my sun.

PEACE & GOVERNANCE IN AFRICA
I would love for the poverty, war and oppression to end in Africa. The real solution will come from Africans. Let’s have selfless service from leaders in Africa, not rulers who are looters, liars, oppressors with no purpose and who lack vision or mission in life. Let us have political, social and economic justice. Let citizens be patriotic and unified, let us all GROWINTOPEACE. Let the oppressive and mischievous policy of plunder in Africa pursued so long by so called Super powers, interfering unnecessarily with the internal affairs of other countries, and thereby leading to disputes, and often to disastrous wars- war and armaments are good for their economy. For instance, the interventions in Somalia, Libya and Mali are deeply problematic.That’s the only way that pattern of oppression and poverty can be stopped. — That’s the real revolution. Let our lives hold hope and possibility for Africa. No person or nation is great except that person or nation’s life is based upon morality. All authentic religions have morality infused in their teachings- we must care for the condition of humanity. What we attend to we become, where we place our attention shapes our world.

GHA congratulates all harmonious classes (SPHERONS’) of women, we wish you a happy life in peace from harmony, which can o¬nly be the result of your high moral mission of a balanced life dedicated to Global Peace via your priority in it.

We all are the harmonious SPHERONS members and we must work to achieve gender equality, empower women more in politics, good governance and socio-economic projects.
GHA is proud to celebrate International Women’s Day on 8th March every year since we are deeply committed to promoting the role of women in peace building and transforming the world through peace from harmony & harmonious education.The 2016 theme for International Women’s Day is “Planet 50-50 by 2030: Step It Up for Gender Equality.”
GHA’s Woman Mission in the 21st Century “Peace on Planet through Peace from harmony, Gender Equality and women empowerment by 2030.Women are the born peace makers and Peace Leaders for developing culture of peace and harmony in the family and in the society. Peace Education can initiate social changes and hence social development, by bringing about a change in attitude for gender equality, empowering women more in politics and good governance.
GHA strongly believe that for a new era of peace, harmony, and sustainability to grow, there must be a rebalancing and harmonizing of the feminine power with the masculine. Women have been marginalized and suppressed for millennia and we are therefore keen on bringing forth the wisdom and power of feminism and in supporting women in stepping forward in Peace and leadership roles.
Global Peace Science: Victory of Peace over War in XXI century is having a Noble Peace Mission of ‘Vasudhaiva Kutumbkam’- World is One family through peace from harmony , Women dignity & empowerment for saving the Earth planet and humanity in 21st century. http://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=585
A real woman brings up her children harmoniously, is devoted to God, takes care of her parents, inspire her husband to give up bad habits like excessive smoking / gambling / anti-social activities etc and communicate with the world in a harmonious state of compassion and understanding of society, besides taking care of herself through yoga and meditation .
While some women remain oppressed by a male dominated society and adopt lifestyle which curtails their freedom like supporting veils or covering their head , there are other women who In the name of women’s liberation are seen to adopt bad life styles at the cost of their self-dignity, family and children leading to broken homes etc. In both cases it is only women who can change the situation as they are the ultimate sufferers. Therefore to have a peaceful world, women have a vital role to play in peace implementation. Women have a key role to play in the education of children in the spirit of Global Peace Science, which was first established in Global Harmony Association!
GHA congratulates Global women Peace Leaders and wishes them a happy life in peace from harmony!
The GHA offers a bouquet of flowers with PEACE & HARMONY!

By: Ayo Ayoola-Amale, a Peace builder.
I sat high upon a mountain overlooking the world. I saw the oneness of all creation. The day before I had slipped out of Accra, I knew that if I could always remain on the mountaintop I would never descend into the valley. In complete harmony I could be of greater usefulness. I could be of greater service to humanity. When I woke up at dawn I was in New Delhi, the breath of a new life in the year 2015.The spirit of peace in India filled everywhere with boundless energy that grew with time. I was surrounded by all the good things, like love, peace and joy in every city, in all the institutions, and places I visited and by all the lovely people I met. I felt very uplifted, more uplifted- every flower, every tree, seemed to wear a halo. Importantly, was the realization of the oneness of all creation. Life on the peace path agreed with me.
The message of the Hindu gods, the Buddha in Buddhism, and Islam was a simple one: overcome evil with good, hatred with love and falsehood with truth. This was the message of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Our inner peace comes first, and then peace will be attainable among individuals, the community, the nations and the world. The Universal message of perennial, spiritual truths is clothed in this simple and understandable life.
It was not the Scholars erudition that spoke at this World Conference but the eternal truth released in its full effulgence in this gathering. Incredible India!
ISISAR in collaboration with WCPA, IPPNO (USA) and Ramakrishna Mission Institute of Culture organized World Thinkers’ & Writers” Peace Meet 2015 on the central theme ‘Religions, Cultural Harmony and Peace’, dedicated to Swami Vivekananda, a celebrated Peace Thinker and Humanist.
Swami Vivekananda through his life and works highlighted the essentials for world peace-respecting and accepting variety in religion and cultures but recognizing their underlying unity and giving each individual greater human worth and a higher common destiny.
International Scholars, Poets, Writers, Philosophers, Educators etc, from all over the world attended the five days conference. I gave presentation titled “The Role of Religious Leaders in Peace Building.” I recited my peace poems and spoke on the Culture of Peace and active Non-Violence etc.
THE WHISPER OF A HIGHER SELF
I knew what I was to do after attending the conference in Kolkata; I wore the garb of my mission. I flew from City to City for Peace. I took wings to Hyderabad, Vijayawada, Bangalore, Cochin, Coimbatore, Chennai and finally to New Delhi.
I gave presentations on various topics in Legal, Social and Political Reforms, Human Rights, Interfaith Dialogue, Global Peace, I spoke about the Culture of Peace and active Non-Violence and about the way to peace., Gandhi’s Leadership model, Peace Education etc. and also recited my Peace Poems. I also spoke of my own personal experiences and insights, in different Universities and colleges in seven cities in India on a World Peace tour series as an Ambassador for Peace SRMT, courtesy of the benevolence of the great Mission Trust of India and the genius of Prof S. A. R. P.V Chaturvedi.
I was very happy to meet the wonderful SRMT family- Respected Swamiji Chaturvedi in Coimbatore, Prof Swaminadham in Hyderabad , Justice P.K Shamsuddin in Cochin, Justice Dr T.N Vallinayagam in Chennai, Lovely Ms Gomathi, Ravi and other brothers and sisters in Chennai.
I was warmly welcomed with bouquet of flowers. I was honored with the Indian national symbol plaque and received Silver plaque, and very lovely gifts and books. I had a wonderful and memorable time in India! Surely, the important things of living, is a committed existence of love and service.
Several questions were asked by University students. I hereby share some:
1. QUE: when and how did I start my service to humanity?
My response to this was: Service to others has always been part of my life. This is so because it gives my life meaning. When I was in secondary school, I thought deeply what I really wanted for my life. It was then I felt a complete willingness, without any reservations, to give my life to something beyond myself – to dedicate my life – to service. Then a great peace came over me. I joined Girls Guide and the Red Cross Society. I was very committed and gave my all.
When I was in the university I joined the Rotaract Club (junior Rotary) and Women In Nigeria (WIN).
This was the turning point for my life. I can never go back to completely self-centered living.
2. Question from a University student: Can Poetry bring world peace?
My Answer:
No, not exactly. My responsibility as a poet and peace builder is to rouse people from apathy and make them think….”
The path to peace is to provide an environment where everyone can flourish devoid of any form of discrimination- religion, race, gender,etc. The path of Truth, justice, and Non-violent resolution is the part to peace.
There is within the hearts of every human being a deep desire for peace, and they would speak for peace if they were not bound by apathy, by ignorance or by fear. It is the responsibility of peacemakers to inspire them from their apathy, to dispel their ignorance with truth, to allay their fear with faith that God’s laws work for good….the way of peace is the way of love. The greatest power on earth is love. It conquers all things… Simply, the way to peace is to overcome evil with good, falsehood with truth, and hatred with love.
3. Question: How did you find peace within you?
My Answer: There is a difference between the willingness to give of myself and the actual giving. During this period I was engaged in a great struggle between my “lower, self-centered nature,” and the “higher, God-centered nature. So there is a constant struggle. This can only be fully controlled by the God-centered nature. When the God-centered nature took over, i found inner peace.
I believe that overcoming selfishness and gaining release from its power were key to attaining inner peace and spiritual maturity. I believed that when you attain that physical, mental and emotional maturity- you would be in total harmony and control of the self. I feel my faith in God strengthen as an omnipotent source of divine inspiration.
Mankind must learn the way of peace. My message is that whatever you feel called to do for peace in the world do it.
