ACT ON WISDOM is a global fellowship committed to creating peace, sustainability and balance in the world. We do so by living in accordance with the following wisdom:
Peace. Act in ways that maximize benefit and minimize harm to yourself and to others. Treat everyone with unconditional love, compassion, kindness and respect.
Sustainability. Leave the world in better shape than you found it. Eliminate wastefulness from your life. Make the most of the gifts and resources at your disposal.
Balance. Make decisions that lead to health and happiness. Live without expectations. Avoid imposing judgment. Practice gratitude and forgiveness. Choose love and joy over suffering. Serve the needs of others.
Our fellowship has no leaders. We are inclusive rather than exclusive, and we promote idealism over ideology. The wisdom that guides us can potentially unify the world because it is consistent with virtually all cultural traditions and beliefs. We know from direct experience that our shared wisdom has the power to heal and transform our hearts and minds, our relationships, our communities and our world.
