A project I’ve been helping with - please feel free to join in and share!
Love Is Better ( www.loveisbetter.org/about ) is an organic, virtual public-art project that pays tribute to the many Canadians who are standing up and saying what we all intuitively know: love is better.
The Love Is Better project was born from a simple concept: choose love over anger, and we’ll change the world.
In the wake of the saddening news of Jack Layton’s passing, there has been an unexpected, heart-warming, and distinctly Canadian story emerging on our facebook pages, along our twitter feeds, through our email inboxes, over skype, and within countless other mediums.
A conversation, seeded by many varied voices has been sparked. While this conversation is not new, it is reaching new heights. Though this conversation is dynamic, one unifying theme has surfaced and it’s message is clear: now is the time.
Transformation happens in many ways and in the briefest of moments; we are all part of co-creating the world we want. We believe that the most amazing thing about this movement is that a conversation which started in the abstract is now becoming real to so many of us. As we begin to notice that this conversation is populated by our peers, or colleagues, our families, and our friends, we gain the courage to join in that conversation ourselves. For as Maryanne Williamson writes in A Return To Love, “as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same”.
Love Is Better (the public-art project) is a dynamic collaboration that has emerged from the recognition that we all have a story to tell and a role to play in this growing movement, and that by having the courage to join in, we inspire others to do the same.
Love Is Better (the concept) is a simple life philosophy, which, if implemented, can have great impact. As Mr. Layton so eloquently put, changing the world can be as simple as actively choosing love over anger, hope over fear and optimism before despair.
We invite you to join us in using this as a place where we can share our ideas, and as a place to come when we need the inspiration of knowing that our voice is echoing amongst countless others.
