A New Year 2011 Scenario

A WPF New Year 2011 Scenario

Dear Planetary Citizens!

We live in a time of rapid spiritual awakening.

Together we can create a Peaceful New World Order. Yes we can.  Let’s do it!

As an I AM Philosophizing agent, I dare to propose a set of ideas for such a change:

*  Create an new level of management of Earth’s Natural Resources, beyond national politics.

*  Create a new global stewardship of resources, beyond the present New World Order Prototype.

*  Establish Peaceful Zones for testing New Ownership Principles, as steps towards creating a Peaceful New World Order:

1. Encourage a Neutral Sweden, and the Nordic Countries to expand its peaceful lifestyles beyond the Baltic states to a Pax Mare Balticum, including Germany, Poland and Russia.

2. Let the spiritual resources around a Neutral Tibet act as a guide to the world for a truly humane exploration and global stewardship of natural and cultural resources, via a renewed and strenghened United Nations II.

3. Create a fruitful Peace, Spirituality and the Future Conference in 2015.

Sincere wish for a creative New Year 2011 via Interactive Internet Insights, over a free World Wide Web!

P.S.   La Convivencia II?

The some seven hundred years of coexistence on the Iberian Peninsula, between Jews, Christians and Moslems was a peaceful époque of spiritual growth in Art and Science. The creative society was based upon an interest free economy, respected by all three Abrahamic Religions. It ended by a self confident Catholic Church sending both the Moslems and Jews into exile, south and north of the Mediterranean Sea.

The formation of Bank of England in 1694 can be said to be the starting point for a ‘New World Order’, from an eager financial elite. Interest rate and growth for the few, became a Hallmark to Western Economies. The Bank Secret was to be defended by military operations, political tactics  and covert financial strategies.

Can Moslems, who still maintain a zero interest rate bank principle, thus become the winners of a global financial collapse?

Can a Neutral Sweden become pioneer and test site for a bold forward looking experiment with egalitarian interest free banking principles: La Convivencia II?

Can an zero interest rate base income, gradually be made into a financial mechanism, granted to all Planetary Citizen as a birthright?!

As a philosophizing fellow human, I firmly believe that a set of new long term principles are needed to create a Peaceful New World Order!   Ove Svidén

P.P.S. From Wikipedia:

“La Convivencia (“the Coexistence”) is a term used to describe a postulated situation in Spanish history from the Muslim Umayyad conquest of Hispania in 711 to 1492, concurrent with the Reconquista (“Reconquest”), when Jews, Muslims, and Catholics in Spain lived in relative peace together within the different kingdoms (during the same time, however, the Christian reclaiming of land conquered by the Moors was ongoing). The phrase often refers to the interplay of cultural ideas between the three groups, and ideas of religious tolerance.”

    We, the leaders and faithful of all World Religions, are pained at the situation of our humanity,
    We are pained by our global conflicts,
    We are pained, in particular today, by the suffering experienced by the Israeli and Palestinian people, who are caught in a violent conflict in Gaza and Israel.
    We offer our pain in prayer and in aspiration, appealing to the goodness of humanity, without taking sides,
    We recognize we are powerless to change events on the ground, yet we believe in the power of prayer to change hearts, to effect a spiritual change that can ultimately bring about peace in the world.
    For this we pray:
    Inspire us with your divine mercy so
    That our hearts may be full of compassion, not of anger and the desire for retaliation,
    That our hearts may be instruments of forgiveness, not of revenge
    That we may experience genuine love, not hate.
    Whatever action we undertake, let it not be guided by hate or revenge, but by concern for the greater good of all.
    May we always recall the preciousness of every life and minimize unneeded hurt
    May we always appreciate our deep interconnectedness, as common citizens of one earth.
    May we always recall the unity of the family of humankind and realize that in some way every attack on the other is an attack on our very selves
    We ask for protection for all.
    We ask that women, children and non-combatants not be drawn into the conflict, through the willful or unwillful actions of either side
    We ask for protection for our hearts, lest they become hardened at the sight of suffering,
    In all our actions, we ask for compassion for the suffering that surrounds us.
    We pray that all are endowed with wise judgment and a compassionate heart, as they undertake their duties.
    We pray that those who hold powerful tools in their hands have the wisdom when to use them and when to refrain from using them.
    We pray that we may have the wisdom to use the opportunities provided by technology for human welfare and wellbeing
    Grant us leaders who may be inspired by you to lead us towards love and peace, and not increase hate and violence.
    May our own words, as leaders of the faithful, arise from the depth of prayer.
    May they never incite or be the source of suffering and violence.
    May our words have the power to heal and soothe rather than to incite and inflame.
    Source of grace, love and compassion, grant us, here on earth, your peace, your Salam, your Shalom

      Thank you for your moral support.
      You are free to participate in this Peace Philosophers Blog with your sincere comments.
      Until now we are still waiting for a starting capital to set up a secretariat in Brussels.
      Hopefully, this autumn we are in the position to invite you to A PEACE, SPIRITUALITY AND THE FUTURE Conference in 2017.
