All students in America are taught about the contributions of Martin Luther King Jr. to the cause of oneness of all humanity and peace. In US his birthday is celebrated as a National holiday. The hope is that everyone spends this day reflecting and meditating on the vital importance of oneness of all humanity and world peace. His birthday, Jan 15, 1929 is around the corner and since CGIE considers the issue of oneness of all humanity and peace to be an integral part of Integrated Education curriculum, CGIE is cosponsoring a tribute celebration for Martin Luther king Jri have a dream MLK Jr. In this very warm and loving atmosphere adults of all colors and children of all sizes will be exploring their dream for oneness and peace.CGIE considers the education for oneness and peace to be an integral part of humanity’s spiritual education. That we all come from the same seed, we all live in the same garden earth, and we all turn to the same source of light and life. we all are humble before Its powers and its Might.
Wouldn’t it wonderful if one day instead of putting more locks on our doors and more walls of so called security around our selves, that we open the doors to our homes, our hearts, our communities and our places of worship and welcome all people of all colors and creeds and beliefs to come and learn about oneness and peace and raise our hands in gratitute to the one Universal Creator, that Unknowable Essence who is All loving, All knowing and All wise.
There is a beautiful song my children were taught to sing in their integrated education for oneness and peace that said:
We are the flowers of God’s garden, bright as the morning fresh as the dawn.
Lovely in differences, varied in loveliness.
we are the flowers of humanity.
The flyer for the celebration of King’s birthday has two quotes on this most important ingredient of Integrated Education; oneness of humanity. The quotes are as follows;
“Sooner or later all the peoples of the world, without regard to the political systems under which they live, will have to discover a way to live together in peace.– Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.(1929-1968)
“The well being of mankind, its peace and security, are unattainable unless and until its unity is firmly established.”
– Baha’u’llah (1817-1892)
CGIE wishes everyone a most wonderful martin luther king jr. birthday celebration any where you are.
