People of India and Pakistan
Earthquake Prayer Circle

For all those affected by the massive quake in the subcontinent, a short moment to send warm wishes

As many of you know, near the town of Bhuj in the state of Gujarat in western India, a huge earthquake jolted the Indian sub-continent last week.

The quake was felt in Bangladesh, Nepal and in Madras, South India. It's the equivalent of feeling a New York earthquake as far west as Chicago.

It is estimated that maybe in excess of 15,000 lost their lives and hundreds of thousands are homeless.

This prayer circle was created to send our warmest wishes and prayers to those impacted by this natural disaster. Our thoughts are with you.

Dear Bhagwanji Listen To Our Prayers.

Today it's about the children for me. And about the mourning parents. I want to scoop them all up in the embrace of Love, those still here, those gone on, everyone.

You know how when a child is born, they just have complete trust? They know that all they have to do is cry out, and their needs will be met. They expect someone to be there watching over them, reading their needs and supplying them.

I remember gazing at the newborn faces of my little ones, and vowing never to betray that trust. I wanted to preserve it long enough so that as they grew, they could learn to transfer that trust from me personally to their divine Creator. And then they would always feel secure, always know that Someone was watching over them.

This time, the earth itself betrayed the children of Asia and their parents. Something we so totally take for grantedóthe ground beneath our feetódidn't behave as expected. The picture of mortality is grim. Yet there is still room for trust.

Trust in the idea that Life is Spirit, that nothing good can be annihilated because it is eternal, that Love transcends mortal boundaries and unites us in the realm of Mind.

The God who maketh all things new is hearing the cries of the small ones, and meeting their needs right now for Love, tenderness, comfort, peace. God is the most attentive Parent, and in truth, we have never been far from His gaze.

Take a few moments today to picture with me the dear children, safe in the arms of Love. And send that comforting thought to their parents, embracing all in the Creator's care.

"God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new."
