How it all Began. The Spiritual Conspiracy & Me. – Brian Piergrossi

Greetings Everyone!

Here is the full poem of mine that’s gone viral around the world in recent weeks.

It was written in the early 2000’s and published in 2008 in my first book ‘The Big Glow: Insight, Inspiration, Peace & Passion’

It was originally entitled ‘Love is the New Religion’  As people began sharing it, they would often change the title, even the words, or share abbreviated versions, at times. 

People made songs, videos, and memes with it. Shared it at festivals and rallies, yoga classes, prayer groups, and spiritual centers around the world.

The title that became the most well known over time is “The Spiritual Conspiracy”

The phrase”love bombs” is often heard now in daily vernacular.

Much of the poem was written on a public computer at the Solano Public Library in Fairfield California where I worked part-time during that period.

I first shared it with friends in a group email and it received very little feedback. Perhaps I didn’t find the right friends yet.

I shared it again a second time, several years later. With social media more evolved, and the consciousness of the world more ready, to my delight and great surprise, it spread like wildfire.

It’s been translated and shared into multiple languages and people from all nationalities, religions, age groups, and socioeconomic classes have continued to be moved by it, and share it with each other, especially in times of great adversity.

As for me these days, I’ve been fully self-employed for over 15 years living my purpose as a personal life coach, meditation & mindfulness teacher, breathworker, healer, writer & podcaster. I’ve facilitated retreats and classes around the world, often with my Beloved, Annie Marie, and am based in Asheville NC.

You’re welcome to send me a personal message, or my PM me on social media.

It’s been wonderful to connect with so many of you around the world over the years through this poem. I am grateful our lives have touched. Thank you for being a part of the journey and making a positive difference in the world.

Love is the New Religion / The Spiritual Conspiracy

On the surface of the world right now there is war and violence and things seem dark

But calmly and quietly, at the same time, something else is happening underground

An inner revolution is taking place and certain individuals are being called

to a higher light

It is a silent revolution

From the inside out

From the ground up

It is time for me to reveal myself

I am an embedded agent of an secret, undercover


Global operation

A spiritual conspiracy

We have sleeper cells in every nation on the planet

You won’t see us on the T.V.

You won’t read about us in the newspaper

You won’t hear about us on the radio

We don’t seek any glory

We don’t wear any uniform

We come in all shapes and sizes

Colors and styles

Most of us work anonymously

We are quietly working behind the scenes in every country and culture of the world

Cities big and small, mountains and valleys, in farms and villages, tribes and remote islands

You could pass by one of us on the street and not even notice

We go undercover

We remain behind the scenes

It is of no concern to us who takes the final credit

But simply that the work gets done

Occasionally we spot each other in the street

We give a quiet nod and continue on our way so no one will notice

During the day many of us pretend we have normal jobs

But behind the false storefront at night is where the real work takes place

Some call us the “Conscious Army”

We are slowly creating a new world with the power of our minds and hearts

We follow, with passion and joy

Our orders from the Central Command

The Spiritual Intelligence Agency

We are dropping soft, secret love bombs when no ones is looking






Kind words


Meditation and prayer


Social activism



Random acts of kindness

We each express ourselves in our own unique ways with our own unique

gifts and talents

“Be the change you want to see in the world”

That is the motto that fills our hearts

We know it is the only way real transformation takes place

We know that quietly and humbly we have the power of all the oceans


Our work is slow and meticulous

Like the formation of mountains

It is not even visible at first glance

And yet with it entire tectonic plates shall be moved in the centuries to come

Love is the new religion of the 21st century

You don’t have to be a highly educated person

Or have any exceptional knowledge to understand it

It comes from the intelligence of the heart

Embedded in the timeless evolutionary pulse of all human beings

Be the change you want to see in the world

Nobody else can do it for you

We are now recruiting

Perhaps you will join us

Or already have….

All are welcome…

The door is open
