I have a story to tell you. So please listen carefully because you might be the person I am looking for to Co-Create this New World Community of Love and Peace. My story begins in the spiritual capitol of Mexico – the valley of Tepoztlan, Morelos.On the morning of April 21, 2001, I was doing my morning meditation when two morning doves swooped down over my head and sat down in front of me on a stone wall, and began singing their Love Song – “Love You, Me Too – Love You, Me Too”..

What? What do I mean by “A New World Community?” I mean a New World Community of Love and Peace for everyone, everywhere. We want the words Love and Peace; on your lips as you greet one another. We want “Love and Peace” on the top of your mind, and in the bottom of your heart.
Where? In the hearts and minds of all people, worldwide. In Tepoztlan, the spiritual capitol of Mexico.
Why? Why do suicide bombers kill themselves in order to kill others? There are many possibilities. Probably the most basic reason is that they feel their own life is not worth living, and they want the foreign invaders to leave their home country. Perhaps they do not have a job and their family needs money, and their “mentors” promise money for their family. And perhaps at their core, they do not love themselves nor have they received unconditional love from anyone, and their leaders promise them love in the “hereafter”.
A beautiful song reminds us - “What the world needs now is love, sweet love, it’s the only thing that there’s just too little of”. “What the world needs now is love, sweet love, no, not just for some but for everyone”. Love for suicide bombers before, that’s right, before they destroy themselves and us. If potential suicide bombers received genuine love here on earth, they might not kill themselves to receive possible love in the “hereafter.” There can be no peace without love. Love first, then peace.
