September/October 2006 Living Now
Love is the Answer
by Jean-Claude Gerard Koven
Catherina Rodrigues, a young mother from the Blue Mountains outside of Sydney, Australia, came out of her morning meditation with the unequivocal message: Think Love. She was inspired to create a graphic message of peace and put in on T-shirts, placards, note cards and coffee mugs—anything to help imprint this idea into the human psyche.
Her vision is as clear as it is bold: to invite every single person who sees her design or hears of her mission to become an active, willing participant. She plans to turn Think Love into a global movement that overrides all national, religious and philosophical boundaries. Each of us is welcomed as an ambassador of love and invited to reach out to humankind, not merely to cease hostilities and embrace peace, but to transcend old wounds and embrace our former enemies as ourselves.
