nuw-1Our Purpose

Our purpose at Neighbors United Worldwide is

to provide a platform for Neighbors to unite in solidarity toward building sustainably satisfying individual lives and creating a renewed world focused on love, non-violence, and equality.

Every feature of the Neighbors United Worldwide reflects our purpose. Any idea, program, or budget proposal will receive consideration within the context of our purpose.

Our statement of purpose derives from our unique interpretation of our most fundamental guiding principle:

Love your Neighbor as yourself – which NUW interprets as meaning “love each and every individual as if you will experience their life exactly as they do.” (LYNAY: love your Neighbor as yourself)

 

Every faith holds forth the Golden Rule as a core value. We respect and affirm all beliefs that contribute to the core principle of LYNAY (Love Your Neighbor as Yourself). We reject any beliefs contrary to our interpretation of LYNAY. Therefore we embrace activation of members who accept any faith or no faith at all. We embrace everyone. The acceptance of LYNAY in our interpretation marks the only requirement for active participation in Neighbors United Worldwide. Genuine acceptance of LYNAY gets translated into congruent action constantly and consistently. LYNAY constitutes our most fundamental value and guiding principle.

Our interpretation of LYNAY comes from the Rational Revelation of Bud Clark. Please read Dr. Clark’s book, A Future for the 99 Percent, to gain a more detailed perspective on our interpretation.

Every person who has ever lived, lives now, or will live has automatic membership in Neighbors United Worldwide. We are all connected on a fundamental level. Thus no one may reasonably be excluded. Members who persistently create unproductive conflict may at some point be suspended from participation, but they never lose membership.

You are already a member of Neighbors United Worldwide. As an inactive member you do not participate in the responsibilities or the communitarian benefits of active membership. We hope you choose to activate now!

Neighbors United Worldwide exists to:

  • Promote your personal growth and enjoyment of life
  • Prepare you to find and fulfill your life purpose
  • Engage in active community service
  • Connect with each other in meaningful, affirming relationships
  • Share the joy of LYNAY practice and the NUW experience with others
  • Act aggressively to address the most threatening issues of our time
  • Overthrow the global corporate oligarchy
  • Build and develop LYNAY-based communities
  • Encourage and develop LYNAY-based leaders

The effects of corporate rule directly oppose the objectives of Neighbors United Worldwide. Corporate rule generally causes more harm, either directly or indirectly, to people than any other single force. Therefore, one of the chief aims of NUW involves the overthrow of corporate rule, and its replacement with more responsive, universally compassionate, and sustainable systems of economics and government. That does not necessarily mean that NUW advocates completely abandoning current governmental structures; It does mean advocacy for the complete reform, redesign, and rehabilitation of those structures and the way they function. Large scale nonviolent revolutions have succeeded many times in the past. We will duplicate those successes.

Our purpose at the Good Neighbor Society is

to serve our neighbors toward the end of building sustainably enjoyable individual lives, without causing harm, and creating a renewed world focused on love, peace, and equality.
