I dream of a world in which everyone leads themselves out of love, thinks in terms of ecosystems, lives their personal mission and the mission of the organisation, and creates trust-based relationships for prosperity. I want to live in such a world. This is a world where each individual is the sun that shadows always shun, as the Slovenian poet Tone Pavček says.
The universe shows that such a world is possible. Everything flows in harmony in the universe. Our Sun is just one of the stars. Stars connect with each other to form constellations, and constellations create galaxies. The Milky Way, our galaxy, contains 200 to 400 billion stars. And this is just one of billions of galaxies in the observable universe. In this whole unimaginable abundance of stars, everything flows as it should and creates all that is needed to support life on our planet.
Indigenous people on planet Earth have been very much aligned with the stars and with cosmic cycles. Many of their wisdoms are woven into the concepts of aroha, eb, ikigai, oikos and ubuntu. What a coincidence: when we connect the places on the five continents from where these words come from, we get the shape of the constellation Cassiopeia. Five of its brightest stars form a W-shape – to remind us that We are co-creating the World.
Every AEIOU leader is a sun in themselves, a star that emits light. Together, connected with the energy of love, we can build a new World.
A Gift from SLOVEnia to the World is our contribution for the 30th birthday of SLOVEnia and for Slovenian presidency of the Council of the EU.
