Sector / Sub-Sectors - HEALTH


 
We believe that knowledge and resources should be shared equally among all citizens from planet Earth. Developed countries can find the strength and courage to start thinking and acting as a real friend to underdeveloped countries, who are less fortunate and in need.
Sharing knowledge, technology and research with the rest of the world in general areas of interest, and paving paths that see countries go beyond their vicious circles of apathy and human agony at physical, intellectual and spiritual levels (states), provides for the achievement of a balanced development. Health is among the main issue in this process.

Sector / Sub-Sectors - CULTURE, CIVILISATION & ETHNICITY


 
Throughout human development, various civilisations and cultures have traced their own path. Each has created unique characteristics, which remain witness to their society's great achievements.
 
Some have chosen materialistic development, while others have chosen spiritual. Each however, has unique approaches to life itself and it's future challenges - brought by the spirit of "the new".
 
GDF believes that time has arrived, for achievements from the cultures and civilisations to culminate and form one unique system, where all have their unique place under "One Sun", expressing their own creativity and making life easier and more colorful.
 
This time, cultures and civilisations may bring the best from their past, to the present and create a better future for all. East finally meeting West and creating one whole global system, with equity and progress in every dimension of our existence and dialogue at it's core - Unity in Diversity.

“Central spiritual need for humans from every religion, faith and traditional faith, including atheists who believe in natural things, are faith prayer/ deep prayer and meditation/ deep transcendental meditation, in which and during which, believers / individuals or collective, are focusing,  i.e., observing one bright reality out of many negative/ dark possibilities, and according to quantum physics, they are observers. So these practices are fundamental for human well-being, nature etc. …“ Science, especially Quantum Physics and Religion/Faith, are part of one wholeness and with time they are / and they will form an inseparable wholeness and one unity for the benefit of mankind. So Darwin, Einstein and Genesis will come together as one inseparable unity. The publication "Light" - Second edition update is nothing but a doorway towards a higher level of human and spiritual consciousness, awareness and existence, based on scientific facts …“

-In my lifetime, I want to see a world where people are treated equally, where people who have give to people who don't, where more capable nations help those less fortunate ones - without a hidden agenda. A world united, without borders, race, religious conflicts and a monetary system that cripples nations and holds back anything that won't profit a certain few insatiable autocrats. We are all the same, when this is realised and we begin to work together as one rather than compete as many, we will achieve advancement beyond our belief.-

New problems from living in a world of change, require new ways of dealing, thinking and organizing.
 
For effective and timely positive change on Earth, and among all people, new standards, ethics and morals are required. New partnerships and a collective response to environmental (change) dangers, and an increasingly interdependent world, are essential.

Through dialogue, democratic methods and humanitarian actions, GDF's goal is initiating, promoting and fostering support for citizens, organisations and communities, on various levels around the world.

Together, we are stronger and happier. Therefore, we can positively address various problems. In that spirit, we shall develop and articulate outcomes from positive achievements - both ours and others' projects, various works, research etc.,  and continue to inspire and progress new ways of helping people in need, and all of humankind- now, in the future, here, in the space, and forever.
