Mission Statement

Our work, our purpose, and the goal of all our efforts is to make one simple insight into the root cause of all human misery and one simple act of inward looking universally available and accessible within the entire human community. We strive to find new ways to communicate directly and clearly to anyone who will listen exactly what has to be done to be finished once and for all with the fear and self-hatred that spoils human life.  Based on our own personal experience and the reports we have received from people all over the world who have tried it, we believe that this simple act of inward looking, if done by enough of us, will most likely not only reverse the slide toward extinction, but will usher in a new age of sanity and common sense in which all human beings will be allowed to thrive and flourish in ways we cannot imagine.

Leadership (GuideStar ExchangeThe GuideStar Exchange allows nonprofits to regularly update key information directly to GuideStar. It provides richer and broader information about their programs, impact, finances, people and more. October, 2013)

John William Sherman

Leadership Statement:

Our mission in support of our exempt purpose is to bring news of a simple act of looking inward at yourself to the ears of at least 700 million people around the world within a relatively short period of time (3-5 years). We believe that this will trigger a tipping point in the human outlook as to the fundamental nature of human life. We believe that in time, this shift in outlook will drive us all sane and reverse our headlong rush to self-destruction. For this purpose, in September of 2011, we launched the Just One Look project, whose goal is to bring the invitation to experience the power of human consciousness to free itself of the fear of life to all humanity. This is now the main focus of our work to make peace available to all. The first worldwide event of the Just One Look project will be on January 13, 2013 and we plan to broadcast it worldwide via the Internet. We expect to gather many thousands of people around the world who will stop whatever they are doing in that moment and simultaneously take a few seconds to look inward at themselves. We intend that this event will bring the news of the Just One Look experiment into the broad global consciousness

Program Description:

The Just One Look Community Center is a safe gathering place for people who are actively engaged in the looking, and who use this space to support one another in the recovery from the effects of the fear of life.   Our forums are the main feature in our Community Center. The purpose of our forums is to provide a safe place where people who are engaged in the looking, in whatever stage of the recovery process they may find themselves, can provide support for one another, compare experiences related to the act of looking itself, the onset of sanity, and to the doubt, fear and anxiety that may arise during the period of recovery. These forums are a place where we can consider together the meaning and significance of this work - in our own lives, as well as for the entire community of humans everywhere.In the forums we seek to perfect our collective and practical understanding of the act of looking at oneself, so that we can all understand it and learn to speak of it more directly and clearly in the everyday language of all people.We also seek to perfect our collective and practical understanding of the confusion and anguish that can sometimes afflict the mind recovering from the effects of the fear of life, and to provide a safe haven for the expression of their pain. All are welcome. Always free of charge.   http://www.riverganga.org/Community/Board/
