Despite this latest war, I still believe we can have peace on earth, and all people can have nutritious food and shelter, and we can live sustainably in harmony with this wondrous miraculous planet, and with each other.
I’m not sure it will happen, but I’m certain it still can. Maybe not in my lifetime but that’s okay.
I want to sing a song of pure light so love will shine through me.
I sing it with a voice like a prayer to wake up the heart to wake up the heart
To wake up the heart to wake up the heart so love will shine through me.
(The song begins at 1:21:10 in the video linked to above.)
With deep sorrow and compassion for all those who suffer and live in fear and desperation and pain. What can I do today to help bring peace on Earth, like we’ve been dreaming of? My heart says, just be kind to myself first, and forgive myself, and then extend that to others as I can.
Thank You to a Sweet Friend
In response to our newsletter of a few weeks ago about the Hawaiian prayer known as Ho’oponopono (“I’m sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you. I love you.”) my friend Frank (with whom I walked across the country in 1986, on the Great Peace March for Global Nuclear Disarmament) explained:
Actually, it’s not so hard to pronounce Hawaiian words. There may be a lot of syllables but they are short and simple. In this case, ho-o-po-no-po-no. “Pono” is often translated as “righteous”, and a repeated word means a great amount of whatever is being repeated. This concept or formula of ho’oponopono is becoming more widely known.
Thank you so much for that clarification, Frank! Big love to you!
