Global Oneness Day – Sunday 24th October – message from Yoko Ono


GLOBAL ONENESS DAY

They say if all the people in China were to jump up and down at the same time,
the axis of the globe would shift.

Well, we are here together.
Billions of us.

Standing at the dawn of a new age
Determined to shift the axis of the world to health, peace and joy
By loving and caring for all lives on Earth.

Some of us are here physically,
Some are joining us in spirit.
Some of us are imprisoned, tortured, maimed and silenced,
But they are also here today with us.

Some of us have passed away
Before being able to enjoy a new age of love and peace.
But we are all here today standing together with hope.

It’s Time For Action.
The Action is PEACE.

Spread the word.
Spread PEACE.

On Global Oneness Day, let’s recognise that we are ONE.

i love you!

Yoko Ono

What is Oneness?

Oneness is more than a beautiful word. Science increasingly shows it is our true nature – that life is a unified whole with multiple dimensions, each complementing the other.

Beyond that, Oneness is the key to peace.

Peace efforts will continue to fail until people embrace humanity’s Oneness, veteran U.N. envoy Anwarul K. Chowdhury, the leading emissary of the U.N. Culture of Peace initiative, said May 20, 2010, on receiving a worldwide appeal to the world body to declare an annual Global Oneness Day recognizing humanity’s inner unity, originally conceived by Humanity’s Team.

Humanity's Team poses after delivering the Oneness Day petition to Anwarul K. Chowdhury in front of the Chagall Peace Window at the U.N. headquarters in New York City.

“I believe that unless we have that sense of solidarity among the peoples of the world, all our efforts of peace and security will go nowhere,” said  Chowdhury, a former undersecretary-general and high representative of the United Nations.

Chowdhury also encouraged Humanity’s Team,  which delivered the petition to the United Nations and sees Oneness as embracing God and all life, to work together with other groups to  declare a Global Oneness Day, even before the United Nations takes action.

Which is why we declared 24 October 2010 as the first Global Oneness Day – a day intended to inspire awareness, appreciation and celebration of life’s  underlying Oneness in the same way that Earth Day is intended to inspire awareness, appreciation and celebration of the earth’s natural environment.

And like Earth Day, Global Oneness Day invites people to bring Oneness into their lives in practical ways, not just conceptually.

These practical demonstrations of Oneness will give people tangible, experiential proof that living in Oneness works. This will, in turn, encourage us all to expand our hopes, beliefs and behaviors so that, a generation from now, humanity will finally realize a dream it has had since time immemorial of a world living in peace, harmony and happiness.

Thousands in 25 Countries to Celebrate 1st Global Oneness Day Oct. 24

Tutu, Ono, Chopra, Beckwith, Keating among supporters

BOULDER, Colo., Oct. 18, 2010 — Thousands of people in more than 25 countries will celebrate the first Global Oneness Day Oct. 24 by demonstrating humanity’s inner unity and outer diversity, organizers announced today.

The day — initiated by the global grassroots Humanity’s Team movement and supported by the Association for Global New Thought and some three dozen other groups — “is a day when the greatness of the whole is reflected in the greatness of its parts,” Humanity’s Team Worldwide Coordinating Director Steve Farrell said.

It is also a day that is a key steppingstone toward creating lasting peace in the world, organizers said.

“Lasting peace requires that we awaken humanity to our underlying oneness, educate people to the beauty of our diversity and alert the world to the imperative that we must embody these values so that life as we know it may not only be preserved, but renewed and transformed,” AGNT President the Rev. Dr. Michael Bernard Beckwith said.

Prominent Global Oneness Day supporters include South African Nobel Peace laureate Archbishop Desmond Tutu; artist-musician Yoko Ono; spiritual writers Deepak ChopraMarianne WilliamsonNeale Donald Walsch and Andrew Harvey; Trappist monk and priest Father Thomas Keating; futurist Barbara Marx Hubbard, and U.N. Culture of Peace emissary Anwarul K. Chowdhury.

The day, planned as the first annual worldwide celebration, provides opportunities for individuals, organizations and nations to create practical acts demonstrating unity, diversity, harmony and compassion on a shared date, comparable to what happens on Earth Day.

Practical action will provide tangible, experiential proof of how we can live “when we come from a place of oneness,” Beckwith said. “It will encourage us all to expand our hopes, beliefs and behaviors so that at any moment oneness may permeate all aspects of life.”

“Would the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks have occurred if humanity had already recognized we are all one?” Beckwith said. “Would we now tolerate accelerated global warming, extreme poverty and hunger, and gender inequality? Would we fight each other under the banner of organized religion and in the name of God?”

Recognizing the oneness of humanity and all of life is the key to solving most chronic and acute world problems, Beckwith said.


U.N. ENVOY: NO PEACE WITHOUT ONENESS

Indeed, peace efforts will continue to fail until people embrace humanity’s oneness, Chowdhury said May 20 on receivinggrassroots plea to the United Nations, signed by more than 50,000 people from 168 countries, appealing to the world body to affirm humanity’s oneness and endorse an annual Global Oneness Day.

“I believe that unless we have that sense of solidarity among the peoples of the world, all our efforts of peace and security will go nowhere,” said Chowdhury, a former undersecretary-general and high representative of the United Nations.

A sampling of scheduled Global Oneness Day events, to date, includes:

•    PHILIPPINES:Global Oneness Eve Celebration with speakers and workshops at Mogwai Cinematheque in Quezon City near Manila.
•    AUSTRALIA: A Oneness Circle, picnic, free hugs campaign and other “unity in diversity” activities at the Botanic Gardens of Adelaide.
•    SOUTH AFRICA: A five-hour workshop and picnic near Johannesburg to “reflect upon, celebrate and experience that which we have in common, as well as that which is uniquely who we are, in respect of religion, spirituality, culture and our connectedness to all of life.” Organizer Humanity’s Team South Africa — leading a drive for South Africa’s Parliament to embrace oneness by declaring a National Ubuntu Day — said it would also hold a food and clothing drive “because we are all one.”
•    GERMANY: A bilingual, German-English public global oneness meditation teleconference, with local phone numbers in most European countries and the United States and free phone service over the Internet through Skype.
•    ITALY: A screening of “ONE: The Movie” near Venice to increase awareness of humanity’s connections “in a world that too often seems disconnected and broken.”
•    ENGLAND: People holding hands in Oneness Circles in at least seven cities, including around the base of the historic Cabot Tower in Bristol, followed by discussions and shared meals in most cities.
•    ARGENTINA: A festival with music, dancing, free hugs, a shared meal and “reflections on practical ways of living in oneness” at the Seven Palms Community in Buenos Aires.
•    BRAZIL: A Festival of Unity at a major square in Salvador da Bahia, a city known as Brazil’s “capital of happiness” due to its joyful population and many outdoor parties.
•    UNITED STATES: Oneness Circles in at least 16 cities, interfaith services in a number of churches, a meditation in Seattle, a rally for oneness in Hagerstown, Md., and a daylong visit to the Montgomery (Ala.) Zoo organized by a group that wants “to develop a greater appreciation for all life.”

In addition, at least three dozen New Thought churches in six countries will hold special services that day, AGNT said. Beckwith’s Agape International Spiritual Center in Culver City, Calif., with more than 9,000 members, will stream its three morning Global Oneness Day services live over the Internet on www.agapelive.com.

“Oneness is more than a beautiful word,” Beckwith said. “The voice of science increasingly agrees with what mystics, prophets and sages have said for millennia — that life is a unified whole with multiple dimensions, each complementing the other. This means we are all one!”


GLOBAL ONENESS DAY TELECONFERENCE

A key official ceremonial event will be a 60-minute public “Global Oneness Day Celebration Connection” teleconference with Walsch, Chowdhury, Hubbard and more than a dozen other international dignitaries, celebrities and grassroots leaders beginning at 10 a.m. EDT (14h00 GMT). The teleconference — at phone number +1-218-486-3850, access code 52059# — will include a report on Global Oneness Day activities around the world.

A separate public teleconference spotlighting U.S. Global Oneness Day activities is set for 6 p.m. EDT. It will use the same phone number and access code.

A number of activities led up to Global Oneness Day. Three of the biggest included the Humanity’s Team “peace through oneness” International Day of Peace observances Sept. 21; AGNT’s Seasons of Interfaith-Intercultural Celebration, part of its Gandhi-King Season for Nonviolence Campaign; and a free, global “40 Days to Oneness” program of daily practices and weekly teleconferences that Humanity’s Team began Sept. 11 with Walsch as a special guest and will end Oct. 23 with Harvey. The program, supporting the expression and celebration of oneness, is based on the book “The Proof,” by James F. Twyman and Anakha Coman, and done in collaboration with the authors.

“The awareness that even with our individual differences we are all one will shift the political, economic and spiritual reality so humanity can finally realize a dream it has had since time immemorial — citizens of the world living in peace, harmony and happiness,” Beckwith said.

The Oneness Day Petition

Global Oneness Day is a day set aside and embraced by individuals, communities and nations each year to celebrate, discuss, demonstrate and thus experience our commonality while embracing our beautiful cultural diversity – a shared day to embody unity, diversity, harmony and compassion.

We also want the United Nations to recognize this day because unity, diversity, harmony and compassion – founding U.N. ideals – are also important to the common interests of the international community.

Please add your name to our global appeal to the world body.

Let’s celebrate together!

People of many different communities, cultures and countries will celebrate our inherent Oneness in beautiful, diverse and fascinating ways.

How will you celebrate your Oneness in life’s diversity? In a Oneness Circle with friends? A Free Hugs event in a park? A family observance at home?

No matter how, we invite you to give it a try.

Because when you experience Oneness, if even for a moment, you will marvel at how you could ever have imagined yourself to be separate from anyone or anything else.

And it will be an experience you never forget.

Find an event here.



Ono: Affirm unity on Global Oneness Day

NEW YORK, Oct. 21 (UPI) — U.S. activist artist-musician Yoko Ono appealed to the world Thursday to “recognize that we are one” and show this recognition on the first Global Oneness Day.

“They say if all the people in China were to jump up and down at the same time, the axis of the globe would shift,” Ono said.

Similarly, “billions of us” are “determined to shift the axis of the world to health, peace and joy by loving and caring for all lives on Earth,” she said in a video supporting Global Oneness Day, to be celebrated in more than 25 countries Sunday, organizers said.

“It’s time for action,” Ono said. “On Global Oneness Day, let’s recognize that we are one.”

The day, which seeks United Nations recognition, is to be commemorated with practical acts demonstrating unity, diversity, harmony and compassion, comparable to what happens on Earth Day, organizers said.

Scores of churches will also hold oneness-themed services that day, said the Association for Global New Thought, one of the day’s nearly 50 supporting organizations.

“Lasting peace requires that we awaken humanity to our underlying oneness, educate people to the beauty of our diversity and alert the world to the imperative that we must embody these values so that life as we know it may not only be preserved, but renewed and transformed,” said AGNT President the Rev. Michael Bernard Beckwith, spiritual director of Agape International Spiritual Center, a 9,000-member church in Culver City, Calif.

Added South African Nobel Peace laureate retired Archbishop Desmond Tutu, one of more than a dozen spiritual, scientific, academic and political leaders supporting the day: “I dream of a new world and a new humanity” that expresses “the ancient spirituality of humanity’s oneness with our creator, the other and nature.”

“We are all one,” he said.
