The Civilization
of Love Movement

Humanity’s Next Great Adventure

The Civilization of Love is an international movement, transcending countries, religions, and philosophies, mobilizing humanity to transform institutions and societies, building a global civilization of love. We reject the culture of death with its fear, anger, hate, division, greed and war.

Love

We choose love not as sentimental emotion;
but as transcendent action,
working for each others well-being,
as we would for ourselves.

If Not Love

If not love,
then what?
If not for love,
then why?
If not with love,
then how?
If not now,
then when
If not us,
then who?

~ Tony Bellizzi

“Abundant, transcendent, unconditional, sacrificial love is the only hope humanity ever has.”
Tony Bellizzi

“We’ve tried the law of the jungle, an age of reason, an information age. It’s time to build a Civilization of Love.”
Tony Bellizzi

Food For Thought

Bite-sized morsels of wisdom and inspiration

Valuable

What is more valuable: Rare gems and metals or the greatest resource in the universe: the love of the creator of the universe: infinitely abundant, unconditional, sacrificial?

So True

We wonder how we can love our enemies, when lots of times we don’t even like our friends.

Love is Strong

Love is not weak. It is ultimate strength. You would be very mistaken to think that love is softness. As we grow in our capacity to love, our strength grows even greater.

Remember the Future

“Life is a series of collisions with the future. It is not a sum of what we have been, but what we yearn to be.” Jose Ortega y Gasset

Grow Up

There is no change or growth without pain. It’s time for the adolescent period of humanity to end; for us to grow up and face difficult, even unpleasant tasks.

Life, not death

Let’s create a world that empowers loving people who want to live and not one that produces hate-mongers willing to die.

Generosity

Generous love holds the power to dehumanize the world.” Matthew Kelly

Greed Kills

The priority of building a Civilization of Love, and an end to economic injustice, demands that we each give up our greed. Otherwise, if we don’t refuse to play, the...

True Solidarity

When we become allies of those who are marginalized while enjoying privilege, our efforts don’t register. Solidarity requires humility and a willingness to be uncomfortable.

Reconciliation

We build a Civilization of Love by reconciling with God, neighbor, creation, and self.

Return to the Route

We can all agree that we need more decency and civility. They are not enough though. Most of all we need love.

Looks Like This

This is what a Civilization of Love looks like: the adults at Brentwood HS, LI NY working with their students, bringing out the best in them to shape an amazing musical...

Freedom & Love

We are freedom-loving people, with the freedom of loving. There is no true freedom without love and there is no love without freedom.

Any time is the right time

I’ve been told this is not the right time for this message. ANY AND EVERY TIME IS THE RIGHT TIME FOR LOVE. Just because there is a resistance to it, doesn’t mean it should...

Human Rights

All human beings deserve to live with the right of freedom to choose love.

Conscience

Keep alive our collective conscience, so in the midst of great inhumanity, suffering, and corruption; we may retain our dignity, and choose goodness, forgiveness, and love.

Bridges, not Walls

Human beings defend ourselves at all costs for self-preservation. We are rapidly in many ways building a culture of walls around hearts and territory. We need to build...

What is enough?

What we’ve learned: affluence and economic wealth are not enough, infinite amusement is not enough, infinite information is not enough. Freedom itself is not enough; it’s...

Real change

What is needed for real change for the better? In any institution you can only do good when there are people in place to build a Civilization of Love.

Take a side

The Civilization of Love agenda delineation is not male vs. female, rich vs poor, color vs white. It’s love vs no love.

Not Normal

Without the power of love, the splintered, fragmented, divided world feels normal.

Follow the Money

Why do you have to get economics involved in this movement? Because there is no Civilization of Love when there is economic injustice, destruction of the planet, destruction...

Finally

At least now you have a choice. We can now stand up and say we want love as the cornerstone of our culture and the centerpiece of our society.

Once in a Lifetime

You can get on board the “Civilization of Love” train, but if you refuse or get in the way, history will not judge you honorably.

Can’t say

They can never say- “Oh we tried love, it didn’t work.” It’s never been tried.

No Lying

Can’t say you love your country if you hate half the people in it.

Come Together

Among the greatest goals of the Civilization of Love Movement is to foster unity; to build new coalitions, and de-escalate tribal conflict.

No Whining

We are all frustrated and confused and we complain. But this noise is not enough. it is easier to complain than help.
