What if, for one day, humanity concentrated
on the things and people we love and are
What if for one day the world forgot the
superficial ideas that divide us and
remembered the eternal truths that bind

What if for one day we forgot about what
we are against and concentrated on what
we want, what we are for?
What if, for one day, love and gratitude
ruled the world?
We propose a day, August 20, 2016, for
the world to gather together as one at
the water’s edge and concentrate on the
things and people we love. A day without
political debate, or religious arguments,
or any other divisive motivation. A day
devoted to the love and gratitude we all
feel and the water we all need.
Participation is relatively simple. All
you need do is take some time that day
and go physically touch some water close
to you while thinking about love and
gratitude in whatever way works for you.
Last year an estimated 20,000-30,000 people
participated world wide. Some held group
meditations and prayer sessions, while
others had family get togethers or just
took a swim. Heck, you can sit at a desk
with your feet in a bucket if that works
for you. How you participate isn’t as
important as it is that you have fun
and concentrate on love and gratitude
as long as is comfortable
Why do we do this? Despite our motivation
for thinking so, the vast majority of us
will agree that this world is not what we
dream it to be. There is only one way for
it to become that dream and that is for
us to make it so. First we need to realize
we can, that we control our own destiny,
and together we can make whatever world
we dream up. Joining the mass of humanity
in one simple gesture will symbolically
join us as one and stimulate the kinds
of interactions and understanding we
need to shake off the old paradigms of
negativity to begin building societies
based on love and gratitude. We don’t
need a forced centralization of power
to bring about global unity but a
joining of hearts and minds in free
choice and love.
We use water because of its ubiquitous
nature to life and its unique ability
to act as a conduit and join our energies.
Of course, we, and plants and animals,
all need clean water to drink, but it
goes deeper than that. All religious
traditions use water in their most
sacred ceremonies. Not to mention the
seemingly magical qualities of water
we are just learning through the
mysteries of quantum physics. Lets not
forget the fact that we are made mostly
of water. Simply put, water is life.
Besides, who doesn’t love a day at the
beach, or lake, or river,..?
