RADIO - WEB programs about LOVE, FORGIVENESS & Peace
Although this item is not specifically about the death penalty - here are some items which surely are compatible with our philosophy here with the prayer that they will bring some refreshment. Don't get burned out - refresh, renew, forgive
The Global Oneness Project and “ubuntu”
June 2nd, 2009
Ubuntu is nothing more than compassion brought into colorful practice.
The web has allowed for incredible global connections to happen. From Playing for Change to The Global Oneness Project, people are finding creative ways to unite people across political and geographical boundaries.
Since 2006, members of The Global Oneness Project “have been traveling the globe gathering stories from creative and courageous people who base their lives and work on the understanding that we bear great responsibility for each other and our shared world.”
In particular, one of their videos explains the African term “ubuntu.” ‘Ubuntu, a traditional African philosophy, recognizes how we are inextricably bound in each other’s humanity. Translated as, “I am because you are,” Ubuntu describes a sense of unity between people through which we each discover our own strengths and virtues.’ Rooted in African culture, ubuntu has a lot to teach those of us from cultures that emphasize individualism.
Another inspiring video is about the Seva Cafe where patrons practice “paying it forward.”
