World Goodwill

World Goodwill is working to establish right human relations through the use of the power of goodwill

The most contagious human quality which can be organised and made effective is goodwill. It has been defined as “Love in Action”. People of goodwill are potentially the richest asset in any nation, and can have tremendous influence on public opinion when properly associated and focussed. To bring in the new day, we do not need a further appraisal of the world condition based on a particular ideology or point of view. Rather, we need a deeper sense of reality based on spiritual values, and a new perception of humanity as a unit of divine life within an ordered and purposive universe.

GOODWILL IS... the touchstone that will transform the world

In order to place a closer focus on the work of the United Nations, and in particular the post-2015 process which is aiming to replace the Millennium Development Goals, we have set up a new blog, World Goodwill at the UN, which will provide up-to-date reports on relevant UN meetings and processes. Regular updates feature news on what is happening at the UN, focusing especially on the process of defining new Sustainable Development Goals for humanity after 2015 when the Millennium Development Goals expire. A Facebook page provides shorter topical coverage. We invite you to subscribe to the Blog and Like the Facebook page.

So what of our relations with the element Water now? More...

The Goodwill Meditation Group, a worldwide group of people who meditate once a week on the energy of goodwill. Their subjective work strengthens human consciousness, making positive, forward-looking solutions to world crises more possible.

A world prayer, the Great Invocation, is distributed on a worldwide scale in many languages and dialects. World Goodwill also cooperates in organising the annual World Invocation Day, with special focus on the use of the Great Invocation worldwide.

The Problems of Humanity study papers on the major problems of human progress. Emphasis is placed upon underlying causes and emerging trends rather than on a factual survey of events. The use of the trained mind in reflective thought and meditation is encouraged. Study groups may be formed.
