The God is Love Project
The God is Love Project is based around the idea that "God is Love", and that as people, we can act in this spirit to make the world a better place.

The rules of the Project are simple:

1. LOVE a stranger through any act of kindness, large or small.
2. CELEBRATE the idea that "God is Love" (without any religious connection or connotation at all), either with a note or a quick comment. If you are atheist/agnostic in your beliefs...that's cool too! Just say, "Hey, it's all about Unconditional Love!"... and that's the same idea. Everyone can and is included in this idea.

And that's it... it is such a simple and beautiful idea, replicable across all people and cultures.

Additional "guidelines":

- "bonus points" awarded if you can do your acts of kindness completely anonymously. (Just leave a note saying "God is Love").
- no act of kindness, consideration or compassion for another is too small. Anything to show your Love!
- you can work alone, or in a team, or even as part of several teams. A team of 4 people might be an optimum size, with enough people to keep the momentum going, but not so many as to make it complicated. Meet as often as you like, and make the projects as simple or as small as you like. Keep a list of ideas that you all come up with, and rotate amongst yourselves the choice of which project you are going to do next.
- publicize your projects with pictures, stories and ideas both on the internet, and offline... get others involved, and make this a viral idea!

I already have several ideas in mind... if this idea excites you, if it resonates with you... if it embodies the essence that is you... please join in, and spread the word. And share your kindness ideas, success stories and experiences here.

THANK YOU!

Re: The God is Love Project
I have picked out an idea to start with:

I am going to give a woman who suffers from very painful and debilitating migraine headaches, a pair of these new sunglasses that apparently work wonders in reducing or eliminating migraines altogether (for some, but not all people). I don't really know this person, they are just someone I have met through my workplace; they are essentially a stranger to me, but they seemed open to trying these glasses when I mentioned that I might be able to get my hands on a pair. The glasses are about $80, or a bit less, depending on which ones I get, I am still checking them out:

[link to www.amazon.com]

This is a project that I will be proceeding with either alone or as part of a team... I will be forming one team of 4 people that I know in real life, for projects local to me, and perhaps, if there is interest, another team of 4 people here on GLP, for projects wherever in the world we are located. So the cost of each project, if there is any, would be then be split by 4. If we all have Paypal accounts, we can rotate sending payments to each other every time we do a project that requires a bit of money (um, I'm far from rich, so they would be small payments, just fyi). That is, if the projects even require money...not all will. If you prefer to retain your anonymity, that is fine too, we can just brainstorm here on GLP.

All of this of course is something that we are doing because we trust in one another... we have faith in the Goodness of other people. You can believe what you want, and I am far from being naive, but in my world, this is what I really believe, and I am willing to put my money where my mouth is. I truly do trust that there are enough good people here on GLP that we can do this with no problems. In this case, and with other projects, I don't think I can really provide too much "proof" of the final result (other then the purchase receipt), as not everyone wants their picture put on the net. But if you trust that I will do this, and that this kind of cooperative spirit of giving can indeed work, please comment or let me in this thread below! It's a leap of faith, for sure... but isn't that what Life is all about?
Everything you think, say and do is a choice towards the World that you prefer to exist. Discover what you like, and what you don't like...what you prefer... and live in that excitement as much as you can. The World you desire will reveal itself to you! I prefer a World of Truth, Goodness & Beauty... this IS my World. Won't you join me? :)

The amount of love and good feelings you have at the end of your life is equal to the love and good feelings you create during your life.- mine

being willing to assert, acknowledge, and declare exactly how you feel about a thing.
Say your truth—kindly, but fully and completely. Live your truth, gently, but totally

you new clarity.-God

Re: The God is Love Project
Ok, I have ordered a pair of these glasses on ebay, I don't know if they are exactly the same tint as they need to be, but I ordered them anyways, and will update this thread later when I give them to that person/if they have any feedback on them later.

So, on to the next item on my list!

Do you want to start this project in your own area? Do you want to join with me in a team of 4 to do something together? Do you have any general ideas for people to try on their own? Any other feedback on this idea? Let's get this thing rolling!

Re: The God is Love Project
Good Luck OP.

I wouldn't have used the GOD word in it because that scares a lot of people off...

It is lovely that you are going to buy that lady glasses BUT there are many things people can do without costing a cent.

Smile more! - Smile at everyone you see. Smile at the shops, Have fun with the cashiers and joke. There is so much energy in a smile and with that simple gift we can change the world.

Example : I smiled at everyone when I went to the supermarket one day. Everyone smiled back, (probably thinking I was nuts), BUT the whole supermarket seemed to be a happier place.

Random Acts of Kindness - Do something nice for someone. Stand up for someone who needs the seat more than you on public transport. Help ladies with babies & prams. Open doors for people smiling as you do it. Chat to people more when you are out.

As I said "GOOD LUCK" with your project.

Now that you mention it...I was in a starbucks drive-thru, and when I got to the window the lady told me that my coffee was paid for. She handed me a note. The note said, "Dear Random Stranger, Have a nice day!"

That broke me. It doesn't matter how bad or good you are. I want that for eternity. Do you feel me?

Re: The God is Love Project
God is love, people are pigs.
You cant make a psycopath love, they follow procedures, laws, culture and all sorts of over stuff.
So God is love if you are capable of love otherwise God is hate because you hate.
I hate but only because I have been persecuted all my life, if God blesses me by removing me from human contact I can go back to being at peace, until I can feel safe from these poeple and their lies, poisons venom and shit, I will hate.
All my life I have feared humans, I can see right through them, I would rather be dead then in close proximity to them.
It is no sin to not want to be in close proximity with humans that are capable of anything.
So I need to go live elsewhere.

My favorite thing in life is to encounter people who need help and provide it. There is no better feeling than knowing that God will be pleased and that you've made someone's day or week or year. I hope everyone tries to do this. It isn't always easy, it isn't always appreciated by the recipients and don't expect praise. The act itself is payment enough. God bless you all!

Thank you for this comment, and your inspiring ideas for some simple acts of kindness and love that cost nothing to accomplish!

You are right, there are many things that can be done to show Unconditional Love to others that are completely free... and you can participate in the project entirely in this way if that is what you prefer. The idea to split the costs of small random acts of kindness is just one way that a group of people over the internet can easily participate in this idea together, but there are also countless other ways that we can work together to accomplish great things for free. I envisioned a scenario where each "good deed" that the team of four people agree that they will focus on will vary as to if it costs anything or not each time. Perhaps some groups of people will agree beforehand that they will not spend any money while carrying out their good deeds, while others will set a schedule and expectations so that everyone in that particular group understands how things are going to work ("we will each spend $10 a month, on one project that we choose from a list of suggestions, with the choice of project rotating each month amongst our members").

The use of money in doing good deeds is more applicable for people that want to work together over the internet to accomplish their good deeds, just because it facilitates the process of all working together for the one person that is "on the ground" in that instance. However, if you are really creative, there are other ways that you can work together over the internet, for free, to accomplish a good deed in an offline location... this is what your creative brains are made for! Put your thinking caps on for that one...

In regards to calling this the "God is Love" project... well, if you want to leave out the concept of God altogether, and join the project in the spirit of Unconditional Love, that is completely fine too... because God is Unconditional Love, which means that he/she/it loves you regardless of whatever it is that you believe! You can be the most religious and/or Godly person you can think of, OR, you could choose not to believe in God at all... and you will be treated exactly the same by the concept of God that I believe in. God/The Universal Mind/All That Is... however you want to call it... does not actually "care" if you believe in it or not. The law of Karma still exists of course ("What you put out, you get back"), but this is independent of whether or not you choose to believe in God. If you believe in Unconditionally Loving your fellow human...in random acts of kindness, on any scale... then this project is as just as much for you as it is anyone else.

Way to go OP! hf

I just want to back you up in your "God is Love" idea because it's not universally recognized and applied - otherwise the world would have become, as you say, a better place, long ago.

There's a couple of ways I'd like to back you up:

I know you're not promoting religious connections or connotations, and nor am I because I don't support the religion but I do dig Jesus' teachings; and when it comes to making the world a better place he said important things that are well known but somehow not always lived by us:

"Seek ye first the Kingdom of Heaven and all these things shall be added unto you." (Matthew 6:33)

"The Kingdom of Heaven is within". (Luke 17:21)

So, where is the Kingdom of Heaven within? And how is it experienced by us?

Love is at the core of Jesus' teachings and he said, "Love and serve one another as I have loved and served you." (John 13:34)

The experience of the Kingdom of Heaven is the love we feel within us, the love we experience when we love. Our experience of God, or the Kingdom of Heaven or whatever we choose to think of as the cosmic creative intelligence, is the love we feel within. It's divine, unconditional love that just loves, no matter what or why. As you say, OP, God is love. It's very simple, as you say. It's a wonder we don't live as if it were so. How different the world would be if we would.

And here's a second way to back you up. It's a really clear expression of "It's All About Love", channeled by Esther Hicks from a group entity named Abraham - well worth listening to:

I'd like to take that a bit further, to something we never seem to get to grips with, which is that if the Kingdom of Heaven is within us, as Jesus assures us it is, then we have a direct connection to God within us - even to the extent that God is within us, deep within us spiritually, perhaps even within us through and through physically. If so, we are, in effect, ourselves God. We are, in effect, all of us, God's eyes and other sensory organs, and physical organs, in this physical world. It's surely logical that this should be so.

So saying, we are God; God is love, we are love. The love we have within us, which we sometimes manage to feel and express outwardly, is the very love of God. When we love, unconditionally, we are God expressing His/Her love. When we love in the way you're suggesting OP, we are God loving in this reality, this world.

You'd think, would you not, that we'd like to do that, at least FOR God if we can't always acknowledge ourselves to be God.

But if we could acknowledge ourselves to be God, and express the love of God, how that might change this world....
