most of our colors are amazingly the same.”
Aberjhani, Elemental: The Power of Illuminated Love

“The human body resonates at the same frequency as Mother Earth. So instead of only focusing on trying to save the earth, which operates in congruence to our vibrations, I think it is more important to be one with each other. If you really want to remedy the earth, we have to mend mankind. And to unite mankind, we heal the Earth. That is the only way. Mother Earth will exist with or without us. Yet if she is sick, it is because mankind is sick and separated. And if our vibrations are bad, she reacts to it, as do all living creatures.”

“If the idea of loving those whom you have been taught to recognize as your enemies is too overwhelming, consider more deeply the observation that we are all much more alike than we are unalike.”

Aberjhani
“In an age when nations and individuals routinely exchange murder for murder, when the healing grace of authentic spirituality is usurped by the divisive politics of religious organizations, and when broken hearts bleed pain in darkness without the relief of compassion, the voice of an exceptional poet producing exceptional work is not something the world can afford to dismiss.”
Aberjhani, The American Poet Who Went Home Again

Aberjhani
“Before the thunderous clamor of political debate or war set loose in the world, love insisted on its promise for the possibility of human unity: between men and women, between blacks and whites, northerners and southerners, haves and have-have-nots, self and self.”
Aberjhani, The Wisdom of W.E.B. Du Bois

“From deep within, our spirits are calling for a new and greater global wholeness, global healing, and global opportunity -- the voice is ours, the time is now, and the resources are what we have.”
Laura Teresa Marquez

“Social networking platforms drove man closer to those in neighboring continents, while driving him further apart from those in his neighborhood.”

“I am for true world peace and building a beautiful global garden for our children.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

“No one man should be viewed as having more to offer the world than another. We are all equals and every human being has something of value in their composition which makes them unique – just as every country has their own unique resources to share with the world. Never discount somebody based on material wealth, true wealth is what cannot be seen. Never discount a country by their size or resources, while their resources may greatly benefit other lands in need.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

“Segregation is a word of the past. Unity is the key to a peaceful future.”

Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

Mokokoma Mokhonoana
“Technology has transformed the world into a global village. And communities, families, friends, etc., into local islands.”
Mokokoma Mokhonoana, N for Nigger: Aphorisms for Grown Children and Childish Grown-ups

José Ortega y Gasset
“Desde el siglo XVI ha entrado la humanidad toda en un proceso gigantesco de unificación, que en nuestros días ha llegado a su término insuperable.”
José Ortega y Gasset, The Revolt of the Masses

Enock Maregesi
“My novels are set in a global space and pace. However, I have never visited most of the places. I wrote my first book in London but the story took the reader to places in Mexico, Denmark and Russia, and carefully avoided London. I access these global locations with my feet planted in front of my computer. I will use my internet connection to carefully enter the streets of a foreign city and find out how long it will take my main character to get from the airport to the city center – and if there are any shortcuts on the way. I wanted to do something new. The world is becoming a global village and we have to understand these different cultures. There is a Danish culture, an Israeli culture and so on. So if you want to go to Denmark, then read the book.”
Enock Maregesi

Pervez Hoodbhoy
“Science may have transformed the world into a global village, but it has yet to teach the villagers to learn to talk with and understand each other.”
Pervez Hoodbhoy, Islam and Science: Religious Orthodoxy and the Battle for Rationality

Anirban Bose
“So every dollar spent on finding some gene or hormone to explain why becoming fat is not because of sugary drinks, fried foods or unchecked gluttony is a dollar not spent on getting food for the hungry, vaccines for babies, shelter for the homeless. But the rules are made by the ones in power, these neo-Brahmins, and we must follow them if we want to survive in this global village.”
Anirban Bose, The Death of Mitali Dotto

“Have concern about where you're from, where you live, and where you may travel. The village is global.”

Victor Shamas
“In an era of globalization, people recognize that they are part of a global society, but they have no idea how to make such a society work. So far, no unified vision or leadership has emerged to guide us in this endeavor. We have not yet found a way to expand the spiritual ideals of democracy so that they pertain to every human being, every animal, and every plant. Until we do, human civilization and the Earth's ecosystem will continue to be in peril.”
Victor Shamas, The Way of Play: Reclaiming Divine Fun & Celebration

“Do not focus too much on the east,
And forget the west.
And do not ignore the south,
To speak for the north.
What happens in the east
Has effects in the north,
As the west has on the south.
And do not focus on one species,
And ignore another.
Or love your father,
But ignore your mother.
Or love your sister,
But ignore your brother.
Do not forget each other.
We are all part of each other.
We are all one.

Anirban Bose
“We live in a global village, Neel, where billions of voices babble simultaneously, and in this village a new hierarchy is being established, a new caste-system is being created. Only this time, it is money that sets the tone. Whoever has the most money buys the biggest loudspeaker and is the neo-Brahmin of this new world order. If the ninety-year-old neo-Brahmin on the other side of the earth is terrified of antibiotic resistant flesh-eating bacteria, we must think twice before offering treatment to a twenty-four-year old here. These are the new rules of our global village.”
Anirban Bose, The Death of Mitali Dotto
