OWL Global Wisdom Circle – Feb. 10, 2015

First Speaker

Offuh James Offuh from Ivory Coast
Founder of United for Peace Against Conflict International (UFPACI)

As humans our highest purpose is to discover, live, and communicate what is needed to achieve a world that functions for the benefit of all life.

Our home is a water planet called Earth, cradled in a universe of beauty, mystery, and unfolding drama.

We now know that everything from the largest galaxy to the smallest particle is part of one unified, whole, interconnected system.

Each of us, individually, is important and unique. However at this moment in history, we are being called to set aside any narrow self-interests and to act with integrity, consciousness, and a spirit of goodwill.

Recognizing our common destiny, we envision a world in which love becomes the prevailing human function, cooperating together with all cultures, races, nations and religions for the benefit of all life.

Community Response

Please share yours in the Comments section below.

  1. The question that Offuh offered for the rest of us to reflect on: what actions are each of us taking, or preparing to take, to help bring about a world without wars?
  2. Any other personal reflections to share in response to Offuh’s story?
  3. What we didn’t have time to discuss was the current situation in Cote d’Ivoire. 2015 is an election year there, and with passions still running high, there is real danger of more civil conflict with terrible consequences. Offuh and UFPACI have plans to proactively set up peace conferences in five major cities, with the goal of heading off conflict before it starts. They will need funding to do this. OWL is a volunteer community that does not engage in fund raising. On the other hand, maybe we could get creative to find a way to help. Thoughts anyone?

Next gathering of OWL Wisdom Circle 1

March 10. We invite you to RSVP to join us then!

  2. It’s occurred to me that one possibility for how the OWL community could help would be to set up a crowd-source fund raising site to help fund Offuh’s efforts this year. Is there anyone with experience in this who might step up to lead a small team of volunteers in making this happen? Anyone who might interested in being on the team?
