As we enter into this new year of 2009 I want to offer an idea as my contribution to our global community for a more peaceful world. Perhaps a simple notion giving the state of affairs that presently exists, yet, with each person holding intent clear, a small way to feel united wherever we find ourselves.
The idea came from a group I belong to. Candle for Tibet. On New Years Eve place a candle on your windowsill and just at midnight light that candle with the intent that the light serve as a beacon to all who see it that their hearts be filled with joy, compassion and understanding.
Many cultures and spiritual traditions have used the candle light at their windows for ion of time as the symbol that that home was a haven to all who would grace their doors. What better way than to be counted amongst all those before who chose to be a beacon to all who wander in search of peace and comfort during times of distress,
Please join me in this endeavor to let all who see the candle burning brightly know just how many people around the world care for all of our well beings.
I ask that you post this notion to all, any other groups, social networks, blogs etc that you belong to. Tomorrow is the day. Lets let millions around the world know we are a safe haven. What we will have is a world a lit with hope for the work, the life we wish to live and pass on to our future.
