Thousands in more than 25 countries including five cities across the UK will celebrate the first Global Oneness Day, a key steppingstone toward creating lasting peace in the world on Sunday October 24th 2010, by demonstrating humanity’s inner unity and outer diversity.

The day initiated by the global grassroots Humanity’s Team movement and supported by the Association for Global New Thought and some three dozen other groups — “is a day when the greatness of the whole is reflected in the greatness of its parts,” Humanity’s Team Worldwide Coordinating Director Steve Farrell said.  “Lasting peace requires that we awaken humanity to our underlying oneness, educate people to the beauty of our diversity and alert the world to the imperative that we must embody these values so that life as we know it may not only be preserved, but renewed and transformed,” AGNT President the Rev. Dr. Michael Bernard Beckwith said.

Prominent Global Oneness Day supporters include South African Nobel Peace laureate Archbishop Desmond Tutu; artist-musician Yoko Ono; spiritual writers Deepak Chopra, Marianne Williamson, Neale Donald Walsch and Andrew Harvey; futurist Barbara Marx Hubbard, and U.N. Culture of Peace emissary Anwarul K. Chowdhury.

The day, planned as the first annual worldwide celebration, provides opportunities for individuals, organizations and nations to create practical acts demonstrating unity, diversity, harmony and compassion on a shared date, comparable to what happens on Earth Day. In London a “Circle of Oneness” will take place amongst the historic buildings in Westminster, which are globally known for their power of sway in the world of politics and beyond.  Commencing at 12.45, individuals will gather by the “Old Palace Yard” in front of Houses of Parliament to hold a space for Oneness and the peace that can be attained by the world through its understanding, practice and awareness.  All or welcome to join and lend their individuation to a single force of energy that holds the real power to transform the world and its relationships.

“Would the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks have occurred if humanity had already recognized we are all One?” Beckwith asked. “Would we now tolerate accelerated global warming, extreme poverty and hunger, and gender inequality? Would we fight each other under the banner of organized religion and in the name of God?”

U.N. Envoy: No Peace Without Oneness

Former undersecretary-general and high representative of the United Nations Anwarul Chowdhury received a grassroots plea to the United Nations in May 2010, signed by more than 50,000 people from 168 countries, appealing to the world body to affirm humanity’s oneness and endorse an annual Global Oneness Day. Chowdhury said that “peace efforts will continue to fail until people embrace humanity’s oneness” and that “unless we have that sense of solidarity among the peoples of the world, all our efforts of peace and security will go nowhere”

As Michael Beckwith says: “Oneness is more than a beautiful word… the voice of science increasingly agrees with what mystics, prophets and sages have said for millennia — that life is a unified whole with multiple dimensions, each complementing the other. This means we are all one!”
