We propose a theory of change centered on discussions about the spiritual nature, condition, and commonality of the human species. From these discussions, they will find a variety of unique approaches for the solutions needed to meet today’s challenges, and those certain to come. We welcome special insights from guest with demonstrated interest to provide sustaining criteria that will help advance human development in a global context.

Changing humanity’s conceptual framework is a daunting task, but one which is necessary if we are to realize progressive and sustainable futures. This means that we must commit to the human spirit and the values that inform its expressions. These include, among others, trustworthiness, generosity, humility, rectitude of conduct, dignity, and our collective destiny on a shared planet. Guests are given assistance with submissions placed for posting, to include principles for development planning. All narratives must provide a positive framework for change.
Idealism & Motivation challenges static minds
Imagine creating a brilliant plan to save humanity, but upon submission, never came to fruition. Although human challenges are real, there remains a deep gap between a great idea and its implementation. In response to a perceived lack of will, we provide useful strategies that employ spiritual will and human commonalities as the bases for coalition-building and human solidarity, to build partnerships and establish alliances, and excite enthusiasm to get the job done.
protagonists of development
Working at the community level, people must strive to build capacity on larger and larger scales, to enable people around the world to become protagonists of development. Central to these efforts is the principle that humanity is but one people and, within that context, development ceases to be something one group of people does for the benefit of another. Instead, all people, whether materially rich or poor, young or old, man or woman, engage in a common to work shoulder to shoulder to contribute to the well-being of the whole.
Religion's Role in advancing the common good
The role of religion in advancing the common good deals with the idea that human reality has both a spiritual and a material dimension. While not promoting a particular belief-system, resources must be brought to bear on the spiritual aspects of challenges ranging from apathy and prejudice to hunger and material poverty.
We explore how the spiritual principles found in all the world’s religions can be applied to the modern world. In this way, we seek to understand how something that many see as a fundamental truth–that spiritual reality is central to human existence–can help us all participate in building a better world.
Understanding the potential of youth
We must consider how can the qualities of youth can be enlisted in the processes of community building and in social transformation. It is necessary to encourage them along a path of selfless service to others, and explore the moral and intellectual capacities that can best guide them.
Like-minded collaborators need to explore opportunities available in villages and neighborhoods around the world for youth participation in the process. This includes, the promising area of development where upcoming generations of teenagers are learning how to help those younger than themselves to develop the personal capacities and attitudes needed to contribute to social progress.
Universal Declaration of Human Rights
The human rights framework expressed in the Declaration, marks a milestone in humanity's collective efforts to build a more just and peaceful world. Yet widespread discrimination, oppression and society’s failures to uphold international law still exist, result being an increase in suffering of millions people thwarting the advancement of humanity on the global stage.
We believe that human rights achieve their highest expression when understood in the context of human relationships—within the family, the community, the national entities, and among the community of nations. Viewed in this way, human rights are a vehicle for all to realize their inherent potential and to ensure the same not only for ourselves but for others.
Equality of Men and Women
This has strong Implications for society. The equality of women and men is a facet of human reality, and not just a condition to be achieved for the common good. That which makes human beings human—their spiritual core, their inherent dignity and nobility—is neither male nor female.
The search for meaning, purpose and community, the capacity to love, to create, to persevere, has no gender. This has profound implications for the organization of every aspect of human society in localities across the world.
We must endeavour to establish patterns of community life and put in place institutional structures that reflect the belief in the fundamental equality of women and men. In this way, discrimination against girls and women will cease and allow all to develop to their full potential.
