I am so glad to know that Val met a lovely family and that her daughter became friends with their daughter. In the world of the Internet, one click gives us various windows on the world, and if we want, it also gives us the chance to make friends with people all over the world. What a fascinating modern age we are living in right now!
I have thought about using this great tool for world peace for years. Actually, the reason why I started blogging was because I desired to be some help, even in a small way, to further world peace. I know that there are many blogs/homepages that have culitvated gathering voices hoping for world peace already and there are many people who support world peace.
Wishing for world peace and healing the earth together...
The other day, one of my friends told me about an article that she happen to read.
According to her, the message in the article was suggesting that people all over the world pray to heal the earth, at the same time together. The procedure of the pray is as follows:
1. Imagine a perfect and healthy earth.
2. Imagine the earth full of green, and all of our families full of happiness.
3. Bless the earth for ten minutes.
4. Do it for about ten minutes at 22:00 every day.
The message also appeals to people by the following message: We are all members of a spaceship called "Mother Earth". Each of us has different beliefs, culture, and religion. However, everyone has the same four DNA base structures of ATCG. We all have the same feelings of happiness or sadness. At the core, we are all one! So fighting each other is absurd! It is sad to see our Mother Earth (our home) being hurt and destroyed. That is why the earth healing project has been started.
I think this prayer is worth doing.
The weather this summer here was totally abnormal; not only this summer and not only Japan, also the weather throughout the year, all over the world, has been abnormal! I feel a sense of crisis and some sense of responsibility as a human-being.
As Val mentioned in her previous post, we mothers wish for our children's happiness, now and forever.
My daughter is a grown-up already, but I still worry about her a lot and it seems that the worrying never ends. So I wish for world peace and a healthy earth from the bottom of my heart. Therefore, I have decided to do this earth healing prayer for about ten minutes at 22:00.
Protecting our ocean...
I would also like to share this TED DVD with you.
Her presentation is one of those that urged me to do something to protect our planet. I strongly feel that now is the time that more people strongly desire world peace and to protect our planet with a unified voice.
