“May peace and peace and peace be everywhere”
How shall humanity dwell 'ensemble' throughout our world, as one, as several continents, as many nations, cities, villages, and families, yet as one family. The realized individual experiences oneness, yet multiplicity, picking one piece of fruit and separating it into segments for his or her family to share. Then, the tree of life is rooted, blooming, fruiting, and nourishing all as one. A symphony expresses music in this harmonic, and thus, humanity is at the era in time and space in which to realize itself as a great symphony of the sacred, rooted, blooming, fruiting, embodying a heaven on earth as prayer and practice, as one, as a symphony of many instruments yet harmonious.
Revered elder spiritual leaders from every traditional tribe I have been privileged to meet throughout our world for half a century all communicated to me that this era would be born, and that they would only live to see the beginning, but that I would live to be part of its birth. They were all godparents to humanity.Let us pray and practice as they have taught the world, in good faith, tender courage, all hope, deep virtue, and mercy.
