It's important there is a historical legacy to the message this time period represents. We need to always celebrate the universal values of compassion, peace and love."

Formula For World Peace:

Cooperation + Tolerance = Peace.

"It is a matter of the greatest present-time urgency that the prevailing global mood of political separatism, end-game competitiveness, and endlessly multiplied divisiveness be immediately and thoroughly and universally and permanently relinquished — such that the entire world-population of humankind becomes universally intelligent with the heart-positive mind of cooperation and tolerance."

This is the first paragraph of one of many essays in a book, by The Great Sage and World Friend, Adi Da, titled Not-Two Is Peace, The Ordinary People's Way of Global Cooperative Order, also available to read, in its entirety on This is an extraordinary book of wisdom and hope for humanity ~ and ALL beings.

Have heart! Enjoy! Take EFFECTIVE action!

See you at Speedway Park.

This online book begins with the following


1. Cooperation + Tolerance = Peace.

2. All of humankind must "lose face" together — in order to require cooperation and tolerance of each other.

3. The people are now the direct and specific targets of all wars. Therefore, armed conflict must no longer be engaged as a means for dealing with world issues.

4. No nation or culture has the right to enact — or even to plan — mass destruction, for any reason whatsoever.

5. The "Humble Unity" of all of humankind (as "everybody-all-at-once") is the power that must dissent from all efforts to achieve world domination.

6. The right ordering of human society can only occur on the basis of freedom from any "ruling ideology" — whether that ideology is religious or secular in nature.

7. The universal human rights are unlimited physical participation in the opportunities of human life and unlimited physical protection from harm.

8. The real (even genetic) situation of the human species is prior unity. Peace requires that prior unity be the working-presumption of humankind.

9. The working-presumption of prior unity must become the basis of a global body of universal participation — or Global Cooperative Forum — that exists to represent and address the urgent global issues that everyone has in common.

10. In that Global Cooperative Forum, all "name-tags" and "slogans" and "flags" must be "left at the door". Every participant would represent all of humankind as a totality.

11. Ultimately, the habit of presuming to be a separate "self" (confronting a "world-out-there") is to be outgrown in the Enlightened understanding of Reality as inherently One, Non-separate, and Indivisible.

12. Perfect Peace Is the tacit, direct, and Intrinsically Self-Evident Self-Realization of the inherently egoless, and Perfectly Indivisible, and Self-Evidently Divine Self-Nature, Self-Condition, and Self-State of Reality Itself — Which Is Utterly Beyond all mere ideas, and all presumptions of "separate self", and all presumptions of separate "world-out-there", and all presumptions of separate" God".
