WELCOME! MAY PEACE PREVAIL ON EARTH


Principles of the Peaceful Worker
by Des

As peace warriors we must firstly empty our cups of knowledge. A mind that is full of knowledge has no room for learning and cannot absorb anything else. The peace warrior is engaged in the moment; the moment is all the time that there is to act within. If all our focus is on the goal, then how can we focus on what we have to do to get there? We are interested in the process of learning and not the goal or the product.

As peaceful warriors we must know our limits before we can find ways to overcome them. We don’t compete with others to gain success in our lives, we forge ourselves by looking in the mirror in order to see clearly what the cause of our own ignorance is. Like the river we must go with the flow – some of us may be going against the flow, but yet are still carried along by it. As warriors of peace our thoughts and actions are simultaneous. We act within the choiceless awareness of the moment, our instincts forged in the fires of our spiritual training.

COMPASSION
by David Sparenberg

The pure and sweet souled
man
Mahatma Gandhi
commonly said,
"I am a Hindu and a Moslem,
a Christian and a Buddhist.”
In his ashram
at daily prayers,
Gandhi prayed
to include all faiths.
We too would benefit
greatly
from his lesson
in tolerance and participation.
Truly
the essence of
all religion is compassion.

Can we say:
I am a human being,
living here, in this time, in this
space, a citizen of the world;
an integral and engaged member
of this One
Earth Global Village.
I am a Hindu and a Moslem,
a Christian and a Buddhist,
a Pagan and a Jew.

I am one
with all compassion,
with all genuine love,
with authentic integrity,
for freedom for justice,
for peace and for honesty,
affirming dignity
protecting diversity
in nature and of cultures.

Wherever there is humility
and an open heart,
I am, in my soul.
Wherever there is kindness
and an open hand,
I am with these
unconditional hands
of flesh and life-giving energy.

I am food
and I am water.
I am air
and I am light.
I am many
and I am only one.
One
is the phenomenal power
of cosmic unity.
.
Where a voice is necessary,
I shall be
a steadfast word.
Where an ear is called for,
I shall be the foremost
listener
of heartfelt concern.
Where eyes are required,
I shall bear witness
with uncompromising vision.

There is no purpose
here, in this life,
greater than devotion and praise.
There is no path
for the mortal sojourn
more worthy
than the way
of expressed compassion.

Truly,
I am a child
in the family of living spirit
and in the unboundaried
congregation
of universal souls.

Like the genuine
Mahatma,
I would open my hands
and my little self,
releasing the canker
worm of violence
and welcoming the butterfly
of peace. .

Here, between my tears
and the smile
of awakened serenity,
I offer my prayer:

Generation, you,
let me stand
among us all, on this wounded
mother earth, with
naked feet,
in humility and courage,
to be who I am,
when I have understood
and transcended
the misconceptions
deceptions
and the betrayal
of who I was.

Each of us will one day be judged by our standard of life, not by our standard of living; by our measure of giving, not by our measure of wealth; by our simple goodness, not by our seeming greatness !

MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
Comment by David Sparenberg on December 22, 2009 at 3:17am
MERRY CHRISTMAS


From the Celts we have the ancient tradition of “I am” poetry. These poems were never intended as mere ego inflations, but more of establishing identity-connections, of relationships. In line with this tradition, today I have written:

THE WIND OF ANDREA BOCELLI

I am as sweet as the wind of Andrea Bocelli
I am as deep as the bottomless miracle of Shakespeare
as solid with sublime beauty as stones of Michelangelo
as full as the Tao of Beethoven with power to wed
the symphonic stars of heaven with choral trees of earth

I am as small as the mustard seed of Jesus
a parable containing the complexity of Bach
as humble as the bird-prayers of Saint Francis
as holy as the dancing laughter of wise and wandering Baal Shem Tov
I am as righteous with visions as prophets Isaiah, Black Elk and Einstein
as big with mandala-dreaming as Blake and Jung

I am animal, angel and human
and I am as sweet
as the wind
of Andrea Bocelli.

David Sparenberg 21 December 2009

Now make an “I am” poem of your own and celebrate the creative accomplishments of our shared humanity!

"For All My Fellow Peace Workers"

Comment by Sandra Reis on November 7, 2009 at 11:41am


If you use your mind to try and understand reality.
You will understand neither your mind nor reality.
If you try and understand reality without using your mind.
You will understand both your mind and reality.
