World peace through love making!
A US based activist couple comes up with an anti-war 'Global orgasm project' that boasts of replacing the war energy with peace energy during orgasm.india Updated: Dec 08, 2006 19:36 IST
Remember the flower power generation's slogan from the 1960s: Make Love, Not War? A US-based activist couple wants the world to put that into practice on December 22 as part of an anti-war 'Global Orgasm Project'.
Donna Sheehan and her partner Paul Reffel have given a call to all peace-lovers around the world, "especially in countries with weapons of mass destruction", to join the campaign on the winter solstice day "at the time of your choosing, in the place of your choosing and with as much privacy as you choose". And they are serious about it.
The project will "effect (a) positive change in the energy field of the earth through input of the largest possible surge of human energy - a Synchronized Global Orgasm", their website says.
"We have had several e-mails from India. We would like very much to have India join with this physical and spiritual event, in the hope that we can all change the energy of the world for the better," the couple informed in a jointly signed mail.
Their timing is motivated by the "two more US fleets heading for the Persian Gulf with anti-submarine equipment that can only be for use against Iran".
"So the time to change Earth's energy is now!"
It will not be the first time that the couple, co-founders of the anti-war organisation Baring Witness, will employ a rather unusual mode of protest.
In the run-up to the US invasion of Iraq in 2002, Sheehan and some of her peace-loving friends stripped naked and spelled "peace" on a Marin County field. As photographs of their protest spread, similar Baring Witness demonstrations were staged in many parts of the world.
That campaign, however, could only have a limited number of participants. "The Global Orgasm is a way for even more men and women to be involved in changing the way human affairs are conducted in the world.
"The intent is that the participants concentrate any thoughts during and after orgasm on peace. The orgasmic energy combined with mindful intention may have a much greater effect than previous mass meditations and prayers," reads their mission statement.
"The goal is to add so much concentrated and high-energy positive input into the energy field of the earth that it will reduce the current dangerous levels of aggression and violence throughout the world."
The duo hopes the energy levels generated by the event will register on the worldwide monitor system of the Global Consciousness Project of Princeton University.
