Special Messages for International Golden Rule Day

April 5th was International Golden Rule Day, where all around the world we are reminded of the message of caring for ourselves, each other, animals and the planet, with love and respect. We asked members and friends of CTII to share with us a special message for the day – and their all here for you to watch and enjoy!

So to begin with, here is the message from CTII Chairperson, Berry Behr:


Then we have a special message from Frank Molteno and our friends at SAFCEI. The Golden Rule is more than just treating each other with respect, compassion and love, it is also about treating animals and our planet with respect, compassion and love – thank you for sharing this important message with us!

#GoldenRuleDayEveryDay – A beautiful message from composer, Nic Paton, who is sharing with us the recently released song, titled ‘The One’ – a song cycle based on Rumi’s timeless poem “One Song”. May this message of unity spread throughout the world.
