How Can You Help?...
Why Join Us?
I can hear some of you out there saying, “Yes, it seems like a pleasant enough idea, but how does it help me to be a part of it?” I guess that all depends on your way of seeing life. But you do not have to be “religious” to understand this concept. You could be Christian, Buddhist, Hindu, Muslim, Jewish, simply “Spiritual”, or just trying to be a good person in this world. The “label” really does not matter. Call it what you like, “Good Karma”, “What Goes Around, Comes Around”, “The Law of Reciprocity”, “Like-attracts-Like”, “As Above, So Below”, or simply having the joy of knowing you did something to make this planet a better place for us all to live. We all possess the ability to bring “positive energies” into our world.
Not everyone is born with remarkable “artistic-abilities.” Not all of us have been gifted with inborn “musical-abilities” or “mathematical-abilities.” But every human being on the planet was born with “PEACE-ABILITIES”! Every single one of you reading these words today can go out this very moment and put those “abilities” to work in this world. And you can do it without a single moment of training, special schooling, or even practice. These “Peace-Abilities” were there deep inside of you from the moment of your birth. I truly believe that you get back from this life, exactly what you put into it.
So why should you participate in our little “Imagine Your Peace-Abilities” community? Ideally I hope you will decide to join us simply because it is the right thing to do. But you can also see it as a way to “attract” wonderful, hopeful, loving, and very positive things into your own life. “By each crime, and every kindness, we birth our futures.” That is a wonderful quote from a recent movie called Cloud Atlas. I think it says very important things about how we should live our lives each and every day. Help us to promote “Imagine Your Peace-Abilities” to your family, friends, community, and to anyone who you think may also enjoy being a part of it, and see what positive changes happen for you as well. It all begins with a single thought in your head and the desire to make this a better world, even if only in the tiniest of ways. Never think that acts and deeds are only meaningful if others do them. In fact, the good in this world, every time, begins in the exact same place… with you. So I hope you will join us today too. Please become our latest free member, and let’s make this the very best it can be.
-If you would like to help us to make this “peace movement” the very best that it can possibly be, please FULLY PARTICIPATE in this idea each and every day! Don’t just read it, don’t just join the website. Participate in this idea with everything you do, everywhere you go, and with everyone you meet everyday. My sincere hope is that everyone reading these words today, will decide to “LIVE” THIS IDEA!!! “Living Your ‘Peace-Abilities’” will not cost you a single penny, but with each thought, action, and “emotion” in your life you will truly be making this a better world.
Bringing those “abilities” to create “peace” into every moment of your day will soon become a completely natural part of your life. If each of you do that, and also help to spread this idea to as many as we can reach around the world, just imagine how many negative daily encounters can be changed into positive ones. So the greatest contribution you can make, is #1: “LIVE” THE IDEA! each and every day. And #2: SPREAD THE WORD. Let’s make this into a “world-wide movement” where thousands, and perhaps someday even millions, are thinking DAILY about “Imagining Their ‘Peace-Abilities.’” One tiny particle at a time, we can make it a happier and more peaceful world for us all.
- The words you read above are by far the most important ones. But if you would like to, and if you have the ability to do so, we can always use a financial donation as well, to make even more of this possible.
-The “ultimate dream” is to eventually have the money to do genuine “Humanitarian Projects” around the world. Projects such as scholarships to help young people in a variety of global locations to go to school, and even attend universities. We would love to help special young people, who would never have the financial ability to do this any other way, to get college degrees to achieve their “dreams” as well! We would love to help them to go on to “humanitarian careers” of their own! One young person that we help in this way today, could go on to literally help hundreds, even thousands more, in the future. As I said, it is a wonderful “dream.”
-We would also love to be able to supply “micro-loans” to the people in this world who need it the most! “Micro-loans” can completely change the lives of people and their entire families in truly inspiring ways. They can use those small loans (that no bank in the world would ever consider giving to them), to start small businesses. These “micro-loans” often can be as little as $200-$300 dollars. But that tiny amount of money can change lives in ways that are extremely heart-warming to witness. It literally “transforms” lives in such wonderful ways.
-Another idea is to create small “Children’s Libraries”, mounted on pushcarts, to get them directly to children in the poorest communities. It is a way to bring books to children in areas where they do not have the ability to go to actual schools. These children have the same “hunger to learn” and develop their young minds, as the children from the wealthier families. And these children can become just as educated and capable as anyone else, if they only have ACCESS TO THE OPPORTUNITIES to be able to show it. If you have never seen these “push-cart libraries” on TV, they are enough to bring tears to your eyes as you see the little people gathering to enjoy their new books. With the cash to do it, we would love to do this sort of thing as well in the future.
There are literally an endless number of projects that could be accomplished in this world. Wonderful ideas, and the desire do them, will never be the problem. The ideas and worthy places needing this work will always be there in abundance. The financial side of life certainly is important. Nothing can be accomplished without the cash to do it. But, and I can not stress this too strongly, this idea is not about money! It can’t be. The moment that it “becomes about the money”, is the moment that this beautiful idea withers and dies. “Imagine Your ‘Peace-Abilities’” must always remain entirely focused on promoting peace around the world, about helping people, and nothing else. But if you have the desire and the ability to help us in some small way, it would always be deeply appreciated too. PayPal donations can be made using the link below, if you feel so inclined. Please go to: http://jimsprojects.webs.com/apps/donations/ for Paypal and credit card donations. Any amount at all can really make a difference to our goals.
So thanks again for anything you can do to make this “Imagine Your ‘Peace-Abilities’” peace-movement into the biggest success it can possibly become. It can only become a reality if we all combine our efforts to make it happen together. Please “LIVE” THIS IDEA everyday. And thanks again for being a part of it. Jim.
P.S. Please never forget that we would always love to hear YOUR IDEAS as well! That is what our “YOUR Thoughts” page is all about. We truly desire to hear whatever you have to say and suggest as ways to improve this idea, or simply to just say hi to everyone. BE A PART OF THIS, EVERYBODY! That is what this “Imagine Your ‘Peace-Abilities’ Community” is intended to be all about.
