Part of the plan is to motivate the creation of Multi-Faith Now-Age Learning Centres in all appropriate places throughout the world; ideally, the essence of these will be in the conscious awareness of every individual person, dedicated to optimistic thinking and NOW as the latest best time for all humanity. These Learning Centres will help enable all people to co-exist in harmony as one family, sharing the Earth as a common home.
Optimistic Nowist Thinking consists of applying the most practical knowledge and useful wisdom from every religion, faith and philosophical ideology towards the creation of a safer, saner, healthier, happier and more loving world for everyone.
What is Nowism? Nowists are people who are dedicated to the optimistic way, enjoying the latest time as their best time and knowing that even better is yet to come. Optimistic Nowist Thinkers always aspire to look on the positive side of life with an attitude of gratitude. They’re confident about turning difficulties into opportunities and transforming problems into solutions.
You are invited to participate in this Plan For Peace to help honour the countless numbers of people throughout time who have unjustly died at the hands of aggressors;
particularly those who continue to suffer human rights abuses today.
In all of history, now is the best time for each one of us to recognise and respect ourselves and every other person as a unique,
original, unrepeatable, valuable and important, citizen of Earth. We all are sovereign born and free and
equal in dignity and human rights. We share this beautiful World with billions of other kindred spirits and aspire to attain and maintain inner and world peace.
The World Unity and Peace emblem contains icons and symbols representing most of the diverse beliefs that
have influenced humanity throughout history. This emblem is designed to motivate achievement of inner and world peace for enjoyment by everybody and to prompt unity and co-operation between all religions, faiths, ideologies, philosophies, schools of thought, peoples and nations.
The icons embraced within the emblem collectively represent the ideological beliefs of the majority of the world’s peoples. From
the top they include in clockwise order: Australian Aboriginal; Indigenous American and Canadian; Polynesian; Tribal African;
Rastafarian; Communism; Socialism; Paganism; Science; Bahai; Sufism; Islam; Christianity; Judaism; Egyptian; Taoism; Hinduism; Sikhism; Mayans; Shintoism; Buddhism; and Zororastrianism. Other relevant and appropriate schools of thought are to be
added as this initiative advances forward.
Several years ago, the Interfaith Committee of the United Nations Association of Australia (UNAA) (NSW) Inc endorsed the establishment of a local Council for World Unity and Peace to research, develop and implement an action plan towards motivating the United Nations to convene an International Council for World Unity and Peace (ICWUP).
ICWUP’s purpose will be to create a World Unity and Peace web site containing authentic, succinct and concise summaries of the
history and essential precepts of each ideology. People will be invited to participate and selections of practical knowledge and
useful wisdom from every culture will then be made into a Now-Age book with accompanying poster-cards of self-evident truths for wide circulation and open display. Selections can be read at community gatherings of Churches, Houses of Worship, Mosques, Shrines, Synagogues, Temples, and throughout the world.
ICWUP is proposed to consist of elected leaders from each
group represented. They will research and contribute their very best descriptive summaries for inclusion in the website and book towards helping all to realise their inner-peace, transcend
differences with all others, peacefully co-exist and fully enjoy, healthy, happy and loving lives. The poster-cards, well-placed, will continuously radiate an inspirational and educational influence 24/7.
The Council for World Unity and Peace proposal has been created in response to an Earth Repair Charter objective which states:
“Encourage all religions, faiths, nations and peoples to co-exist in harmony as one family, sharing the Earth as our common home”.
The one-page global-vision Charter has been produced to promote implementation of a long-term world-wide action plan for a future without war, and the peoples of Earth united in peace. It presents succinct, practical, self-evident and achievable solutions to help
bring about a sustainable and peaceful future. The
Charter can be seen at earthrepair.net
To effectively enhance the future for everyone, only one generation needs to be positively influenced to think and act more wisely
to help improve the world for all.
Most recognize that inner peace and world peace are interrelated. Peace on Earth depends on the level of
peace within each individual. Peace can be found here and now within
every single one of us as a hidden splendor, nearer than hands and feet and closer than breathing. It is simply just there waiting to be
realised and experienced.
The proposed World Unity and Peace website and Wisdom Book and posters are to provide a positive and optimistic approach to enable better understanding
between different beliefs. Now is recognised as the common uniting element. The quest is to reveal useful wisdom and valuable knowledge to enable each
person to experience continuous & increasing peaceful happiness.
Included in the productions will be the astronomical perspective and humanity’s position in the infinite universe. It is to cover outer and inner space and awareness of infinity and eternity consciousness,
past, present and future.
Now more than ever, let’s all do everything we can to help peace grow in the world. Think peace. Talk peace. Love Peace. Eat for
peace because peace is integral to what we eat. Resolve conflicts for peace. Walk for peace. Smile for peace. Enjoy inner peace and vision world peace. Make and wear Peace Now badges or T-shirts. Write letters and sign petitions for a Ministry or Department for Peace in every country. Make and display peace flags or placards. Help grow food forests for peace. In silence or audibly, regularly sing, chant or
think ‘peace nowwww’ for an instant mood-elevating experience.
Please share and network this information with your local State and Federal Members of Parliament, religious and community leaders, the media, and family and friends. Ask them to help
lobby the United Nations to make the commitment to establish ICWUP as an urgent priority. Media’s participation is encouraged
to publicise this initiative as priority news.
