Spring is round the corner! My good friend Marilyn and I have just put together a grant with amazing potential - and planted a tiny garden with daffodils, together with sweet smelling lillies and colourful tulips and pansies. Time is flying by - as usual... Although, to be honest, I wouldn't have it any other way. I feel as though I have spent so many years 'on hold' and now I am better, I have to run fast to catch up. Today I sang with my choir - I am so proud to be a part of them. I will wrestle with technology and aim to put a video or audio clip on my blog (I might have done it...). Our choir is One Human Family and our aim is social justice... Through music and one song at a time. I am also deepening my understanding of counselling with Mahmud Nestman and Trust Oriented Therapy - and someone very special sent me this writing... Which seemed to sum up so much. I hope you enjoy it:
THE SILENT REVOLUTION
On the surface of the world - right now - there is war and violence and things seem dark.
Loved ones hurt us with harsh words and unacceptance. Society can be a cold place for anyone who's 'different' in any way
But calmly and quietly, at the same time, hearts are opening underground.
An inner revolution is taking place and the lucky among us are being called to a higher light.
It is a silent revolution. Changing us from within - from the inside out. From the ground up.
A Global operation. A Spiritual Conspiracy.
There are sleeper cells in every person - and every nation - on the planet. You won't see us on T.V.
You won't read about us in the newspaper and you won't hear about us on radio.
We don't seek any glory. We don't usually wear uniform. We come in all shapes and sizes, colors and styles.
Most of us work anonymously. We are quietly working behind the scenes in every country and culture of the world.
In families, communities, cities big and small, mountains and valleys, in farms and villages, tribes and remote islands.
You could pass us on the street and not even notice. We go undercover. We remain behind the scenes.
It is of no concern to us who takes the final credit - simply that the work gets done.
Some call us the Conscious Army...
We are slowly creating a new world with the power of our minds and hearts
We are dropping soft, secret love bombs when no one is looking: Poems ~ Hugs ~ Music ~ Photography ~ Movies ~ Kind words ~ Smiles ~ Meditation and prayer ~ Dance - Art ~ Social activism ~ Websites - Blogs ~ Random acts of kindness...
We express ourselves in our own unique way, each with our own unique gifts and talents.
Be the change you want to see in the world.
That is the belief that fills our hearts.
We know it's the only way real transformation can take place.
We know that quietly and humbly we all have the power of the oceans combined
Our work is slow and meticulous. Like the formation of a giant mountain, invisible to the naked eye.
And yet with this loving change, entire tectonic plates shall be moved in the centuries to come.
Love is the new religion of the 21st century
You don't have to be a highly educated person or have any exceptional knowledge to understand it
Life changing love comes from the intelligence of the heart
Embedded in the timeless evolutionary pulse of all human beings.
Be the change you want to see in the world...
Nobody else can do it for you. We are now recruiting. Perhaps you will join us? Maybe you already have...
All are welcome
The door is open...
