One-The Event

                                                                    

 

In a few days, a pivotal event will occur that will have people either enciting fear and anger, creating more separation and polarization or standing together in world wide connection, embracing unity and heralding a time of peaceful co-existence. Unless you have been living in isolation in a cave, you are aware that the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks is occurring this week. My exceedingly clear memory was of witnessing the second plane hit the Towers and thinking distinctly, “I’m not going to give the terrorists my fear.” To this day, I have kept my vow. Yes, I have felt sadness over the loss of life and the trauma that ensued and still I steer clear of fear.

Enter a gathering of like hearted souls from around the planet whose intention it is to be love bringers, rather than fear mongers.  One-The Event has as its mission to hold a vision of a healed world, in which all can feel valued and purposeful. They ask people to make a pledge to share love, most especially on September 11th.  They encourage folks to organize or attend events. They invite people to state definitively, “I am the one who…” and then fill in the blanks with their intention.  Mine would be: “I am the one who shares love in thought, word and action.”  (Our thoughts can be either healing or harming, even if we never verbalize them.)

The organizers say:  “The culmination of ONE The Event is a GLOBAL SYNCHRONIZED MOMENT OF LOVE on 9/11 at 10:46pm GMT (3:46pm PDT, 6:46pm EDT).”  Synchronize your hearts as well, to bring about the change for which we pray….a healed, whole and healthy planet, and all life on it.  See you there!

  Four years ago, at this moment, an event was in the process of taking place that would change my life as I knew it. My mother was in the 'birth canal' on her way to her new life. A few months earlier while she was on hospice, we would have the most extraordinary conversations about what t

Allowing Others To Effect Their Own Destinies
Most Sundays find me at Circle of Miracles, which is an interfaith spiritual community created 19 years ago by Rev. Hannelore Goodwin. It is where I, and many who attend the ecumenical services, find family of choice, inspiration, community and healing. The room is a warm and welcoming place where D

The Only Life You Can Save
One of my favorite wise woman poets is Mary Oliver whose words touch my heart in ways that few others can; as if they could have come through me as well; so personal they are. Today, while visiting my former place of employment, one of my co-workers pulled out an anthology consisting of the works of

Abby's Light
  When a light comes into the world, we hope that it will last indefinitely, knowing that eventually it will fade. When a child is born, a parent doesn't expect that his or her light will diminish before it has a chance to fully express itself...and yet, sadly it happens.  Abby Schumer was

Light Filled Holiday
This morning, I saw a meme on a friend's Facebook page that expressed: LIKE if you plan to be politically incorrect by saying "Merry Christmas" this holiday season. My response to her was: "If I know what people celebrate, I will greet them with their preferred sentiment. I have friends of many diff
