Global love day around the globe

Inspiring Unconditional Love

We enjoy being inspired by our many global friends here at TLF. Over the years you continue to share your insights, courage, wisdom, and compassion through poems, stories, music, art, collaborations and on many occasions just by reaching out and touching us with your love. We share some examples on our site below as part of our global awareness of love.

 There is So Much Love Here
by Tameko Barnette ©2010 Roanoke, Virginia

There is so much love here. Love is within every fiber of my being.
I send it out to others regardless of how they have treated me or
regardless of whether or not I know them. I believe in love and its
power to heal, to comfort, and to experience joy.

There is so much love here. I celebrate the pain, the suffering, the
process, the transformation, the healing, the truth, and the light.
My heart opens like a lotus blossom after it has risen from the muddy
waters where its seed was planted and nurtured into a wondrous
miracle...a testament to the power of love.

No matter what the circumstances as long as there is love as its
foundation, its walls, and its roof...the house is secure, safe,
and everlasting.

Global Love Day - May 1

The Vision

 We are one humanity on this planet.
All life is interconnected and interdependent.
All share in the Universal bond of love.
Love begins with self acceptance and forgiveness.
With respect and compassion we embrace diversity.
Together we make a difference through love.
Join people around the world in celebrating and expanding LOVE

We Celebrate our Humanity

As we continue to connect with people and organizations around the world, we are amazed at how much is being done in efforts to positively assist humanity. There are so many wonderful people and associations that are actively working on behalf of a community, nation and even in global proportions.

As we often remind ourselves, what is presented by mainstream information sources is often a narrow and negative perspective of what is happening upon this planet right now. To the contrary, we see and know that good and right is occurring everywhere. Look for love and you will see it all around you.

This simple reminder changes the very nature of our experience. We are what we place our attention upon. When we allow love to be our focus of life, we expand this in our everyday activities. It is as simple as changing each perspective and allowing the negative and limiting views to be released and replaced by a higher, more loving understanding.

We appreciate and are grateful for the courage each of you express. In a world that has historically revered the negative and fear-based aspects, it takes strength to be and share love. It is time for love to become our common vision.

Please join us. Be a part of this global day by choosing love, compassion, peace, and unity. Share this information with your friends, relatives and coworkers. Love locally and spread it globally.

Every Nation has a Heart

We are delighted to announce the launch of a heart-based social participation movement that acknowledges and encourages the goodness that surrounds us each and every day. Entitled All Nations Love, this new project is our collective opportunity to collaborate locally and inspire and highlight the kindness, caring, dignity, honesty and integrity that is the natural and greater part of our daily experience. Simply stated, “Every nation has a heart; it is time to let yours shine.” TLF is also initiating America Loves as a model for other nations.
All Nations Love is designed as a heart-based social participation movement that brings people together within their culture, community, and nation while inspiring collaboration with other nations and people from around the world. It is our way of uniting heart to heart, nation to nation.

Love's Dare
By Raven Wolfe ©2008 Canada

From my heart, sings my soul’s song.
I must speak it’s message for I have not long.
To impart my words of loving care.
To all those who wish to take love’s dare.
Kindness to others and compassion to all,
Is the Divine’s most humble and loving call.
Giving to others from the depths of our hearts,
Shows what our divine nature’s can impart.

Smiling at all the world, harms not a one.
It teaches other how to have some fun.
Bringing laughter to the world is a noble cause.
Showing the world its nature in humorous collage.

True understanding and patience are the greatest keys.
Through them you can melt away a persons dis-ease.
By sowing the seeds of love, kindness and harmony,
You can bring forth peace on the wings of destiny.

Empowering Bali Community Based Tourism

Empowering Communities In Bali and all over Indonesia

Bali Community Based Tourism Association (Bali CoBTA) is a non-profit and non-governmental organization that promotes sustainable tourism. By facilitating the development of community based tourism villages, tourists are given a unique opportunity to experience local culture and community life, while communities are empowered to earn an additional income by preserving and showcasing their culture and heritage.
This network will then allow the exchange of experiences and information, as well as provide options for tourists

 At the Bali CoBTA we strive to build stronger communities through sustainable tourism

 This inauguration is officially signified by the signing of inscription by Tabanan Regent, accompanied by the Head of Department of Culture and Tourism of Tabanan – Mr. Wayan Adnyana and the Chairman of Bali CoBTA – Mr. Djinaldi Gosana.

The Creative Economic and Tourism Ministry plans to develop 561 tourism villages in several provinces in Indonesia during 2014.

According to the People Empowerment Director in the Ministry, Oneng Setya Harini, the first phase of creating the village will be conducted in 19 provinces.

"We will improve the tourism services offered by the area's residents and carry out several training sessions," Oneng said here on Saturday.

 Bali’s local government will set aside an annual budget of Rp 7.5 billion for the development of tourism villages on the island.

“We are targeting to set up 100 tourism villages, with development taking place from 2015 until 2018. We’ve proposed Rp 300 million for each village and there are approximately 25 villages being funded every year. The fund derives from the Bali regional budget,” head of Bali Provincial Department of Tourism, Ida Bagus Kade Subhiksu, was quoted by Antara as saying.

To realize the plan, Subhiksu has coordinated with local regencies for their support as well as their assistance in selecting the villages.

The plan is a follow up on the Tourism and Creative Economy Ministry program to develop over 500 tourism villages across Indonesia in 2014. The project is aimed at helping tourists discover various cultures that Indonesia has to offer.
