Agents, we’ve been on quite the adventure on our quest to bring unity and compassion to the One Human Family!
For our final mission, let us reflect on where we’ve been over these past 11 days during the Global Unity Games!
We began by looking through the lens of our DNA and realizing that every person on Mother Earth is actually our dear relative. We learned that we each share ancestors in the ancient past, and that biologically speaking, there is no such thing as race. We are One Human Family!
We then started to prepare ourselves to be the best member of the Global Village we could be. And that journey began within us, inMission #0, with gratitude!
In Mission #1, we explored the simple power of mindfulness, and how simply slowing down gives us the ability to be aware of life’s flows and rhythms.
In Mission #2, we explored the power of our creativity, and realized we were each creative geniuses within our own right.
In Mission #3, we explored the power of wonder, and found ways to make the “stars” in our everyday lives noticeable and brilliant once again.
In Mission #4, we explored the power of generosity, and realized we were each part of the “superorganism” of the Human Family.
In Mission #5, we explored the power of happiness, and realized that if we can treat illness, we can also understand and promote the vital qualities of wellness for ourselves and others.
In Mission #6, we explored the power of patience, and realized that like a growing plant who cannot grow faster if it’s stalk are tugged, we each deserve patience to grow and flourish.
In Mission #7, we explored the power of connection, and realized that connection is to a human being what sunlight is to a flower.
In Mission #8, we explored the power of courage, realizing that fear teaches us how much we love our lives, but courage teaches us how to fully live it.
In Mission #9, we explored the power of purpose, and how to intuitively get in tune with our “North Stars” that lead us into our unique purpose.
In Mission #10, we explored the power of love, and realized at the end of the day, love and compassion will always win.
Which leads us to today, Agents, the final day of the Global Unity Games, a day of reflection, sharing, and celebration.
Today, dear Agents, our friends Oprah Winfrey and Louie Schwartzberg will help us conclude our journey with a story about revealing gratitude.
Champions of Compassions
Tune into the Global Unity Telesummit hosted by the Shift Network for the finalday of the 11 Days of Global Unity!
Today’s Telesummit features Monica Willard around the final theme, Peace!
Today marks Day 11, the final day of the Compassion Relay!
Team International Day of Peace has received the torch from Compassionate Louisville! We owe so much to the UN's initiative for the International Day of Peace for bringing the momentum and vision needed to achieve Global Unity in our lifetime.
The SDGs aim to significantly reduce all forms of violence, and work with governments and communities to find lasting solutions to conflict and insecurity. Strengthening the rule of law and promoting human rights is key to this process, as is reducing the flow of illicit arms and strengthening the participation of developing countries in the institutions of global governance.
Reflect on the journey you’ve had over the last 11 days and how your experiences lay the thriving foundation for global unity. How did your reflections and actions impact yourself, others, and the planet? Some days it was really good to be connected to the games, the videos, and the good news in our lives. Others, due to extra time needed, it felt a little overwhelming. It was especially hard when people and life challenges became hurdles. Thank you for being there and all the tools you provided, some of which I did not have time to even open.
Share your experiences on the Compassion Report Map to store them in a type of living time-capsule, and as a way to inspire countless other human relatives who are working toward the same healing of our One Human Family that you are.
Thank you for your commitment to our One Human Family, Agents, and all that you do!
