I influenced important leaders and political movements. Leaders of the civil rights movement in the US, including Martin Luther King, drew from my writings in the development of their own theories about non-violence. I inspired anti-apartheid activist and former President of South Africa, Nelson Mandela. The British musician John Lennon even referred to me when discussing his views on non-violence. I inspired them, I can inspire you, I can inspire the new world. But I don’t just inspire.

I put theories into action. I put utopian concept into practice. I liberated 350 000 000 people without violence. I wasn’t the cause of the murders of millions, because I found them different, as Hitler did. For in a world, everyone is different. And everyone deserves to live. People need something to believe in, someone who unites every being for when they don’t have the strength to do so themselves. Jesus Christ was a person like this. However, Jesus has allowed himself to be misunderstood, and for wars to be fought in his name. Will the same happen to me? No, because I wont be misunderstood. I won’t let people fight in my name. Since, fighting for peace is like having sex for virginity. As I once said:

I offer you peace. I offer you love. I offer you friendship. I see your beauty. I hear your need. I feel your feelings. My wisdom flows from the Highest Source. I salute that Source in you. Let us work together for unity and love.
