Thank you, Joey, for your excellent comments on the DUO Pledge.

4 months ago

IT IS NEVER REALLY EASY for WHATEVER IS HAPPENING IN THE WORLD TODAY - HAS BEEN FORETOLD THOUSANDS of YEARS AGO . . . BUT . . . HAVING SAID THAT . . . WE ALL CAN'T JUST SIT AND WAIT . . . RETREAT & SURRENDER MUST NOT BE OUR CHANTS . . . HOPE & FAITH MUST BE OUR VALUES . . . COURAGE MUST BE OUR PRIMARY ATTRIBUTE . . .

LET'S GIVE PEACE A CHANCE . . .

DUO for WORLD PEACE - what a noble group with equally noble aspirations . . . am just glad that I was sent an invitation by Gary, thank you  . . . and personally  . . . let me say this . . . before we can even expect the world around us to move for PEACE . . . let it start from the roots - WE, US, ME, MYSELF and I

1.  For number 1 - my personal feeling is - for me to RESPECT ALL LIFE FORMS, that can only be done by me when the love I have inside of my heart will remain as is - passionate love for ALL that the Great Spirit has bestowed upon us!!!

2.  For number 2 - my personal thought is - yeah, whatever I have now and my status in life is what I had accepted from the Universe, and I believe that if we accept what we have in life freely, openly and happily . . . there will be NO REMORSE, as such . . . I can honestly SMILE & be cheerful for the way I am . . .

3.  For number 3 - my personal belief is - as long as we are standing on this grounds called EARTH, we are still called HUMANS, and humans do err, we commit mistakes, as such, we are bound to get hurt and feel oppressed . . . next to that is HATRED . . . but . . . someone who's naturally PEACEFUL from within his or her heart . . . the HATRED will & MUST not be allowed to escalate, to linger or to stay long to be developed . . .  After the pains & the hurts & the hatred . . . I CONTROL MYSELF TO THE MAX, to understand more, to forgive more and to LOVE more!

4.   For number 4 - RESPECT . . . all in fact (not only the righteous ones) ALL , no exemptions, for RESPECT when we give, it will come back to us a hundred folds . . . RESPECT is tantamount to LOVE and so it goes!

5.   For number 5 - HELPING is my daily routine, whether advertised here in Care2 for all our clicks, petition signing, sharings & all . . . the most important are the deeds we do daily in our private lives, how we deal with our neighbors, how we help our local community, how we cooperate with our local government . . . etc, etc . . . the wheel goes on - the important thing is MY HEART goes for real helping!

6.  For number 6 - PROMOTION of PEACE IS PRIME & PARAMOUNT . . . we can do that if we have LOVE , if we have sincere LOVE then PEACE I believe can easily be achieved!

All can be  hard work . . . NOTHING is really EASY in this current world . . . but as I said, ALL  OF US MUST BE PATIENT & STEADFAST!

I have to confess is very hard to me make my goal number 3. Is so heard when I see the injustices, how happen now with Mr. Leopoldo Lopez in Venezuela; or when I watch the imagines of the Syrians refugees; or when I discover how are bad people buying human hair in exchange of some coins to the Colombians women refugees in the Venezuela border; or when I see all cruelty against Animals... Oh yes! is so hard for me no feel anger or some hate! But I read the other points of this pledge and remember we are more, doing this pledge, doing our personal goals, and working for build a better world from inside of each one, and after finally fight with myself; I know the better way to conquer this number 3, is changed all that feeling for "perrenque" -Colombian Spanish word that means courage and bravery- to make something to help!
Thank you for this inspirational Pledge! My personal pledge from now!

Throughout history, the cross has had many meanings. The DUO symbol does not have the same shape as the Christian cross. In ancient China it represented the earth. When I was working on a design, I wanted to keep it simple and use a symbol from my interest in both astronomy and ancient history, particularly the Maya. A cross with four dots in the corners has several meanings. It can represent the four cardinal directions and the four extreme positions of the sun, moon, and planets on the horizon.  It was also the Maya symbol for Venus. In researching the symbol I found it was used by many peoples, particularly on pottery—as far back as 4500 B.C. It can be seen on many beautiful Greek vases. I believe it represented both Venus and love. To me our logo represents world peace through love of DUO folks regardless of their other personal beliefs. 

Logo
3 years ago

Hi,there :)

I have just one thing to say about the logo of DUO - what I see there is the cross and cross is attached to christianity.
If the code should be independent of religion too,then the sign in the logo should not bring to mind a symbol related to one of the most known religious mainstream.

I think,that the logo should be more universal,neutral and original.

Best regards!

Peace,love and light!

Has the DUO Personal Goals for Peace poster helped any of our new or old members?  Please tell us your story!

Progress toward peace requires a commitment of the majority to make peace a priority. Read this poster; discuss it with your family and friends. By posting it on your web pages and spreading the message, you can make a difference!

I cannot urge folks enough to think deeply about the DUO Personal Goals and acknowledge how important they are toward promoting world peace. The more we work toward achieving some aspects of the goals the greater we will discover inner peace.  Discuss them with your family and friends and pass on their message. Put the poster on your web pages! 

can't take the poster up

HI there I tried to put the poster up on my page but it just does not do it even though I do it as explained above. Am disappointed :-(. So I put it in folder in my albums. Might be the old one though ~ have to check that :-)
Strangely I was striving for most of the goals anyway:
1. Remove Anger and hate from your heart
2. discover the amazing privilege of life and all its beauty
4. Respect the rights and beliefs of all our righteous fellow beings
5. Help folks less fortunate than yourself

while I have trouble with
3. Accept your status, yet work diligently and morally to improve it
6. make promotion of peace a priority

I guess its all work in progress though :-)

Make a difference by taking the DUO Personal Pledge for Peace and putting the poster on your websites.  Many thanks to those that have already done so!  Your pledge will encourage others to do the same.  Each goal on the pledge can begin in small ways and the results can mentally benefit you as well as those that need help.

Beka, I did understand your post.  I had decided to delete the topic and put the pledge poster under this one. I should have made that action clear to you. Sorry! Thanks for repeating your message under this topic.

Gary, you deleted my sentence because you did not understan the point:

Tai-Chi means internal balance to achieve postive movement towards and

control of yourself. This needs practice for months and years.

Result: accepting nature and seing beauty of life. No anger.

If everyone would pledge to work on these elements, progress toward peace would be immense. I suggest folks begin by studying Hubble Telescope images and thereby discover the stupidity of anger and the wonderful privilege of life. Many of our DUO friends have made great progress on all these elements. 1. Remove anger and hate from your heart. 2. Discover the amazing privilege of life and all its beauty. 3. Accept your current status, yet work diligently and morally to improve it. 4. Respect the rights and beliefs of all our righteous fellow beings. 5. Help folks less fortunate than yourself. 6. Make promotion of peace a priority.
