If something is abundantly so clear, it is extremely obvious and self-evident

Discover what you love, what you value

Then,for sure, you will look after it.

‘Let the beauty we love be what we do.’- Rumi

Be in love with life and the living and the world will be a better place.- Kamran Mofid

The time is now to challenge the accepted wisdom that has denied and degraded 

the people and the environment

Neoliberalism destroys human potential and devastates everything that is good and valuable

To save the world I urge you to move from amor fati, 'embracing our fate', to amor mundi, ‘love of the world’.

Walking in Love for our Children’s Sake

Surely, as we love our children, then, we must also love the world. We must act now, so that  we may maintain a prosperous economy and a cohesive and just society that will not leave an enormous burden and costs on future generations, our children and grandchildren. This is our moral and spiritual calling 

Lest We Forget: The key that will unlock the door to amor mundi is EDUCATION. But, of course, Not any EDUCATION!

'Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all.' ― Aristotle

Education is the point at which we decide whether we love the world enough to assume responsibility for it and by the same token save it from that ruin which, except for renewal, except for the coming of the new and young, would be inevitable. And education, too, is where we decide whether we love our children enough not to expel them from our world and leave them to their own devices, nor to strike from their hands their chance of undertaking something new, something unforeseen by us, but to prepare them in advance for the task of renewing a common world.’Hannah Arendt, The Crisis in Education

‘From the Latin educare, to educate means to lead into or draw out. Education is the activity of leading a child into the world, of drawing her into the world. Parents educate their children by drawing them out of their private selves and into the world of the family, their community, and their society.

‘Schools educate, in turn, by drawing students out of the confines of their families and into the wider political and social world. Education is always an entry into an old world. And yet, it is always a new experience with infinite possibilities for every new initiate.’- Education, Hannah Arendt tells us in the quotation above, is about the love for the world…’-The Crisis in Education

This is How Education Can Save The World: A Perspective from the GCGI

Lest We Forget: We are called to be guardian angels of the earth and "sons and daughters of the rainbow." The challenge is to see ourselves "as alongside things, as members of a larger planetary and cosmic community."- Leonardo Boff, Cry of the Earth, Cry of the Poor

Education to Save the World

'Some say that my teaching is nonsense.

Others call it lofty but impractical.

But to those who have looked inside themselves,

this nonsense makes perfect sense.

And to those who put it into practice,

this loftiness has roots that go deep.

I have just three things to teach:

simplicity, patience, compassion.

These three are your greatest treasures.

Simple in actions and in thoughts,

you return to the source of being.

Patient with both friends and enemies,

you accord with the way things are.

Compassionate toward yourself,

you reconcile all beings in the world'.- Lao Tzu
