OUR LOVE IS POWER
Empowered Love is greater than any authority or influence acting in service of prejudice, greed, divisiveness, hatred or violence.
OUR POWER IS LOVE
We pledge our Love in Action. We Stand up, Speak up and Show up in support and common caring for each other, all creatures and Mother Earth.
Rev. Darlene Strickland
Inspired, inspiring and engagingly compassionate Darlene Strickland is a spiritual visionary and mystic for our time. She is the Senior Minister at Unity of The Blue Ridge in Mills River, North Carolina and visionary behind the “Our Love Is Power” pledge, movement and Spiritual Summit.
Raised in eastern North Carolina, Darlene became uncomfortably aware of racial injustice and religious intolerance at an early age. “I was white in the rural South and I was part of the ‘right’ religious affiliation. So, I was told. But, my heart did not notice color and my soul knew only One Source.”
Darlene has a palpable, unwavering spiritual connection and belief that all people are sacred – born as an original blessing – and that many paths lead to God, which dwells within all creation.
“All our problems stem from a belief in separateness. Existing as separate and apart from our Creator… separate and detached from each other… separate and disconnected from nature and the very earth we walk upon. The foundational problems of our society exist in this consciousness of fear and separation and will continue to persist until there is a shift at that level.
My goal is to help create a critical mass that will bridge the gap of perceived separation and reintegrate into the awareness and expression of wholeness.
Whether we like it or not, we are responsible participants in our world today. If we are not relating to ourselves with compassion and wholeness, how can we be compassionate to the stranger or perceive the wholeness of those we fear or view as different?
Compassion is a natural outpouring of wholeness and oneness. Compassion has tremendous energy and momentum – it moves mountains and it moves us into common caring and inspired action.”
The Our Love Is Power movement and Spiritual Summits are here to inspire, connect, and help equip people to “Stand Up, Speak Up, and Show Up” as a living embodiment of Love in action and engaged practitioner of the Golden Rule.
We are the ones and now is the time to expand our understanding to a cosmic scale and express the wholeness of which we are a manifestation.
