On September 4, love activist Mother Teresa, officially becomes Saint Teresa. In honor, we are calling
you and for citizens the world over to become a Love Activist.
Bring positive change into a world in need. Simply commit to one conscious act of love a day and watch a chain affect that can impact you, your family, your community, city, country and ultimately, the world. Our home.
Then, click on your home and upload your ‘love action.’
It’s everywhere. And happening every day. Children are starving, our environment’s dying, resources depleting. Gut wrenching headlines and viral videos are revealing daily the anger, fear and devastation that’s taking place all over the world. We talk about it. We share the stories but what are we actually doing about it.
What can we do?
You can turn this around. You know deep down inside, the foundation of your action springs from love. From the time man first walked upon this earth, love in action was the universal change maker.
Welcome to the Revolution.
Mother Teresa said, “Love begins at home, and it can spread like a burning fire from house to house.” Our
‘home’ the planet and all its citizenry are in dire need of love.
All you need to do is commit to one conscious act of love a day. One act of love can create a chain affect that can impact a family, a community, a city, a country and ultimately, the world. Our home.
Become a #LoveActivist.
For this to truly impact your life and the lives of those around you, you will have to challenge your comfort zone. Man-up and take a risk. Do something you have never done before. Yet, when you do this, all manner of blessings will shower down upon you. And if you are blessed, we become blessed too. Because that is how it works. Here’s how you can do it.
- Commit to one act of love a day. It can be loving yourself. Like eating consciously. Saying no to something you know is not good for you. Loving your family. Every family has its’ challenges. Fix on one, take it by the horns and heal it. Loving a neighbor. We all have someone close by who can do with a little TLC. Or something as simple as giving a compliment to a stranger. Or show your love to the earth and plant a tree, pick up plastic on the beach. The ways to love are endless.
- Go to loveactivist.co, click on your home, sign up as a #LoveActivist. Upload your ‘love’ action, what inspired you to commit to this, and show us a photograph. Or upload a video and put in the link.

Lead the revolution of love. Do it now. We have only this moment, Now. Don’t withhold your love any longer.
How do we know it will work?
I have been sharing the hundredth monkey phenomenon for years, but it never quite struck me, that science has an answer for how we are going to leap across space and time and touch those on the other side of the world.
The hundredth monkey.
Long before Google maps shrank our living world, an 18 month old Japanese monkey named Imo, initiated a rather awesome scientific phenomenon.
The Japanese monkey, Macaca Fuscata, had been observed in the wild for over 30 years. in 1952, on the island of Koshima, scientists were providing the monkeys with sweet potatoes dropped in the sand. The monkeys liked the taste of the raw sweet potatoes, but they found the dirt unpleasant.
Little Imo discovered she could solve the problem by washing her potatoes in a nearby stream. She taught this trick to her mother. Imo’s playmates also learned this new way and they taught their mothers, too.
Before the eyes of the scientists, one by one, this cultural innovation was picked up by various monkeys.
Between 1952 and 1958, all the young monkeys on Koshima, learned to wash the sandy sweet potatoes to make them more palatable.
Only the adults who imitated their children learned this social improvement. Other adults kept eating the dirty sweet potatoes.
Then something startling took place. In the autumn of 1958, a certain number of Koshima monkeys were washing sweet potatoes — (the exact number is not known) but let us suppose that when the sun rose one morning there were 99 monkeys on Koshima Island who had learned to wash their sweet potatoes. Let's further suppose that later that morning, the hundredth monkey began to wash its potatoes.
THEN IT HAPPENED!
By that evening almost everyone in the tribe was washing their sweet potatoes before eating them.
That was just the beginning.
To the scientists shock and awe, suddenly the habit of washing sweet potatoes then leapt across the ocean — Colonies of monkeys on other islands and the mainland troop of monkeys at Takasakiyama suddenly began washing their sweet potatoes!
The time has come for us to shift global consciousness.
The added energy of this hundredth monkey was the tipping point. It created an ideological breakthrough! Mind to mind. Action to action.
Mother Teresa was right. Love can spread like a burning fire from house to house.
So let us begin.
