The Willie Nelson Peace Research Institute connects individuals and special interest groups to show how apparently individual issues actually exist as problems for us all. The Willie Nelson Peace Research Institute promotes cross-issue support under the watchwords of Peace, Love, Unity and Respect.
It seems that individuals only get involved in becoming the change they wish to see in the world when an issue touches them personally. While the support of individual issues often meets personal needs, while taking up a great deal of personal time, energy and resources, it also proves effective in the championing of selective causes.
However, it often seems that selective causes only make great moves forward when other individuals become newly involved bringing more time, energy and resources to the cause. The surprising benefit of this occurs when the help is reciprocated and all progressive causes move forward together.
When we identify and recognize the common opponent of all progressive causes then it becomes easier not to fall into the trap of competing with other progressive causes instead of cooperating. The common opponent attacks Peace, Love, Unity and Respect in order to keep its power and everyone else powerless.
Just by cooperating with Peace, Love, Unity and Respect we deny power to the violent, hateful, divisive and self-righteous. This action alone is capable of organically building the structure and social conventions for the better world we all desire.
Every year when his birthday rolls around people around the world ask,”What does Willie Nelson want on his birthday?” The Willie Nelson Peace Research Institute seems to be in the perfect position to answer that question.
Give Each Other Peace, Love, Unity and Respect
