    Healing4innerpeace Announcing Love for All Hatred for None Day A Global Event

    in Spirituality

    Announcing Love for All Hatred for None Day  A Global Event


    For more information:



    Love is the one thing that can bring us all together.

    To serve that purpose, the Global Mission of Peace (GMoP) announces the first international Love for All, Hatred for None Day on Sunday, January 31, 2016, a day of sharing, caring and celebration.

    https://www.facebook.com/groups/loveforallhatredfornoneday. Refer to this page to see what others are doing.

    On Love for All, Hatred for None Day, if you are aware of a group that has been insulted, injured or otherwise hurt by words or deeds of hatred, you can take action to apologize and make amends on behalf of the community. For example, bring flowers to the injured parties. Another idea is to organize a fix-up event to repair vandalism.

    The Global Mission of Peace feel that such acts can bridge the gap between people of all faiths and can defuse the hatred and fear that’s been fomented against so many God-loving people.

    For more information and to see the Love for All, Hatred for None Day activities promoting caring, tolerance and acceptance, see our Facebook page above.

    In addition, we’re encouraging people in all the world’s religions to join in peace and love by giving the prayer below for reading at worship services to be held on January 31 or held on days leading up to that day.


    Thank you for considering this gesture of caring and reconciliation.

    The Deep Consciousness of the Resurrection Event

    in Spirituality

    The resurrection is a perfect tense event that has forever altered the physico-mathematical fabric of reality as we know it.  We have not even tapped into the enormous energy source, and nor can we imagine such a power.  Energy in transformation is a relaible constant in our consciousness, but energy-information that can cause a body claimed by thanatos (death) to stand up is beyond our science and technology. (We wish that we could command such determinative power).  Yet, in the ancient biblical documents the power of God (Theos) is revealed that beggars our physics.  God did indeed bring back a man (Jesus) out of death, and into a new existential platform called Resurrection.
