About 12seconds for Peace

'12seconds for Peace' is a collaborative video-arts project, designed to raise the energy of manifestation for peace on our planet and in our individual hearts and minds. When humanity manifests internal peace and recognises the natural order of the human condition, then peace in the world will follow. The proceeds from 12seconds for Peace will go to support and aid the various good causes of a number of charitable and non-profit organisations around the world.

12seconds for Peace - Kim Scott

Here is a video just in for 12seconds for Peace, with some punch behind it from Kim Scott delivering the message of 'Words of Peace' teacher Prem Rawat.

In Kim's own words:

"Prem Rawat, widely known as Maharaji, articulates a message of hope in a time of rapid change and turmoil. Through Words of Peace he points to the possibility that each individual can find peace within, whatever is going on around them."

12seconds for Peace - Albert Einstein

Albert Einstein; possibly one of the leading intellectuals of the twentieth century and the father of modern physics, was awarded the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1921 to acknowledge his work in the area of Theoretical Physics and for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect.

Less well known however, and certainly less acknowledged by the general public was his passionate advocacy of the philosophy of pacifism and his efforts to curb the world's perceived head-long rush into nuclear annhilation. Although a supporter of the war against the Nazis, Einstein campaigned tirelessly for an end to the hatred and nationalism that promoted war.

"My pacifism is an instinctive feeling, a feeling that possesses me because the murder of men is abhorrent. My attitude is not derived from intellectual theory but is based on my deepest antipathy to every kind of cruelty and hatred."

In 1979, to mark the 100th anniversary of Einstein's birth, the Albert Einstein Peace Prize Foundation was established, with it's first award being given to the Swedish sociologist Alva Myrdal in 1980 (Myrdal went on to win the Nobel Peace Prize two years later).

12seconds for Peace - Simon Halsteed

The tranquility of nature on a beautiful day in an English summer is what Simon Halsteed has sent in to 12seconds for Peace. The sound of birds and the distant play of children add to the air of somnambulant days of peace and quietude. A beautiful little video. Thank you Simon for bringing summer to 12seconds for Peace.

12seconds for Peace - John Lennon

No series of videos on the greats in the peace movement would be complete without the inclusion of John Lennon. Possibly one of the most influential musicians of the latter part of the twentieth century, the former Beatle was a passionate advocate and campaigner for peace - a theme that came to dominate much of his life and to an extent his music.
