Our Mission is to encourage individuals to develop an open mind and an open heart toward their follow beings. If we can learn to accept and respect the God given uniqueness of each one of the 7 billion of us, then conflicts fade and solutions emerge.  We believe that knowledge leads to understanding and understanding to acceptance and appreciation of a different point of view.

* The event this year will be unique.  We are hosting a gallery displaying a few pictures of the horrors humans have inflicted upon other humans. Furthermore after receiving Desmond Tutu's signature and blessing on STATIONS ONE, we are introducing "STATIONS TWO: An Interactive Public Artwork." It is a 6 foot "Black Cube" gathering inscriptions and recording voices of forgiveness as has never seen or heard before on the international stage.

Thank you.

We hope each one of us would walk out with an open mind and an open heart towards our fellow beings. It is difficult to shed the prejudices, but once we do, there is genuine freedom (Mukti, Moksha, Salvation, and Nirvana.) in it.

POINTS TO PONDER

  1. Is attempting to undermine divinity of other faiths amount to arrogance? Does that appeal to God?

  2. Is blaming a religion, nation, race, or ethnicity for the acts of individuals’ amount to deception?

  3. Is holding greed, anger, hate, or malice in our hearts depleting our freedom?

  4. Is ridiculing a person amount to ridiculing the creator?

  5. Is judging others without knowing them personally amount to _________ (fill in Please)?

  6. Is God free or some group owns him/her? Are we not limiting its _________ (fill in Please)?

  7. Does God make deals behind our back and favor some? Could God do such a thing?

In affairs of the world, religion appears to be a source of the problem; it certainly is not. You can always trace the wars, genocides, oppression and other atrocities to evil insecure stupid men. Please remember, the purpose of religion was to fix the evils of humankind and it continues to do so while some men still don’t get it. Thanks God, the world is a better place today because of the Religion and spirituality, without which there would be chaos. Every Religion is on the same side, that of goodness for humankind. Finding the truth is one’s own responsibility. Truth brings salvation.

If beauty is in the eyes of the beholder, then faith is in the heart of the believer. Let every one find peace his/her own way – Mike Ghouse

What is Thanksgiving? : Do me a favor, carry a small piece of paper with you anywhere you go, and whenever you get a quiet moment, make a list of all the people you want to thank. Making a list is the least you can do,  which in it self is peace giving and you will find a sense of relief with it. Even if you don’t call every one on the list, you have already said your thanks by thinking about the individual and reciting his or her name in your mind. When you express your gratitude to the persons who have made a difference in your life, it brings a ton of relief to you. The tension of the action (good done to you) to you is released with your re-action of thinking about them to writing their name down and possibly calling them.
