Together we birth our tomorrows
Dear community of explorers, dear dancers in the light:
We are humans of good heart and like mind and I am grateful for the accomplishments of our community in creating opportunities for study and spiritual practice.
These times have me reflecting on the idea of community, family, the human family — and looking at the appearance of hindrances to co-operation, knowing that harm arises when we forget that we are relatives in this dance.
Peacemaking is honoring the breath of life we all share and taking care with our speech and thought to energize pathways of reconciliation and co-operation. The sounds of war with earth shaking through her foundations and celestial conversations magnetically conveyed seem like prophecies displayed.
May our hearts and those of all beings resonantly harmonize in love to gratefully restore balance. Our heart-mind conversation has potential to generate sounds of stabilization.
Our response to aggression with love softens the spikes into more gentle waves reaching towards the shores free from illusion of them and us.
In peace and harmony,
Venerable Dhyani Ywahoo
Acceptance or judgment of another based on their color, tooled as a weapon of power over, to harm and divide the collective potential of ‘we’ shows its face again.
Let us correct the poison of ignorance now with the antidote of naked awareness, understanding what is behind the curtain is not ‘we’.
Again and again, spurred on and harmed by concept of ‘other’, all lose dignity in the game of divide and conquer; as awareness of our collective power to create is killed in plain view.
See the acceptance of wrong view as a mental parasite stealing life force, and replace with thought, speech and action that weaves awakened society.
It only stops when we conceptualize and energize compassionate and mutually respectful community, supported by the breeze of clear speech and recognition which harmonizes with ethics, manners and morality.
Each of us contributes to the results, therefore best to remove the veil of separation from our heart mind, and know there is no ‘other’ only ‘us’.
Signed as a grandmother wiping tears from her eyes knowing that we may transform wrong views into compassionate skillful action — and now is that time.
