History of Global Love Day
The Love Foundation is pleased to announce its first annual Global Love Day on May 1st, 2004 with this year's theme Love Begins with Me. Join people from around the world as we acknowledge, celebrate, and share the love we have in it. This is a special day to reiterate that love is the bond that binds us all. It is also a wonderful power that heals and transforms everything it comes in contact with.
Each of us is a powerful love force when we allow this energy to manifest itself. In the end we don't have to do anything, instead we just allow ourselves to feel and be loved. It is simple. Global Love Day is merely our way of saying to remember that love is ours and to share every moment of our lives.
We understand that this day is symbolic of what we can do every day of the year. Our aim is to join together in the conscious awareness that love is always present. For so many people, love often hides under layers of hurt, trauma, drama, pain, and suffering. Emotional memories, unspoken doubts, fears, resentments, and loads of old beliefs often keep us from realizing these thoughts and feelings have no real power over us. We give them strength by living in the past and fearing the future. We ignore the love that is present in every moment while embracing the limit. It's time to change that. It's time to free ourselves from the bondage we've created.
You and I also have the opportunity to create a difference and present for each person. Together, we can embrace our unlimited self, the part of us that loves, and express it naturally and simply. It is when we accept ourselves for who we are that we transform the moment into peace, safety, joy, and love. Releasing our beliefs, past mistakes, lack of self-worth, pride, and ego through the conscious act of forgiveness are some beginning things of this process. It is up to us as individuals to make this journey. We begin to transform when we turn inward and accept our selves. The world will change when we change our perspective.
When we know who we are and why we act and react the way we do, we begin to see ourselves in the face of humanity. The reflection of hurt is our hurt, their pain is our pain, and others’ anger is our anger, which is also realized when we have to face to the nature. Her destruction is our destruction. These seemingly random expressions are our past thoughts seeking expression. We are always reminded that love is the answer. We construct a new reality in this present moment when we let go. When we choose love over fear, kindness over hate, integration over separation, and peace after war, we bring a new reflection to humanity... our loving self we.
Why celebrate Global Love Day?
- To express love to your friends and family
One good reason why you should partake in this holiday celebration is that it is the perfect opportunity for you to show your love to your friends and family. We should all accept the fact that most of us are unable to express our love to the important people in our lives. Therefore, celebrating this day will allow you to fill that void.
- To show love to your partner
Another good reason for us to celebrate Global Love Day is that you can show and impress your love to your partner. You can have a boyfriend, girlfriend, wife or husband. Global Love Day is similar to Valentine's Day, a day for you.
- To promote understanding and forgiveness
If you celebrate this day, it is also a way to promote understanding and forgiveness. These two concepts are achieved with the power of love. You can encourage yourself and others to forgive all those who may have wronged you and even ask forgiveness for those you have done wrong.
How to celebrate Global Love Day
- Write a letter or a poem
A good thing to do during your celebration is to write a letter or poem to the person you love in your life. You may want to write a letter to your parents and siblings to say how much you love them. You can also make a poem instead of a letter to make it more creative. Then you can gift it to your loved one.
- Create a work of art
You can also celebrate by making a piece of art that you can gift to that special someone during your live. You can try drawing, painting, sculpting or crafting something. You can then gift your creation to your loved one, while showing your love for them.
- Express your love
There are many ways to show your love. The word “I Love You” sounds simple but is actually very difficult to say. Some people don't want to say these words. Instead, they want to show it through their actions.
- Celebrate on social media
You can also put your celebration of this day on social media. For example, you can use the hashtag #GlobalLoveDay to let your friends and followers know that you are also joining in the celebration of this day. If possible, you can also encourage them to join the celebration. You can tell your friends and family how much you love them in your social media accounts.
