“If we are to reach real peace in this world and if we are to carry on a real war against war, we shall have to begin with the children; and if they will grow up in their natural innocence, we won’t have to struggle; we won’t have to pass fruitless idle resolutions, but we shall go from love to love and peace to peace until at last all the corners of the world are covered with that peace and love for which consciously or unconsciously the
whole world is hungering.”
Gandhiji Nov. 19th, 1931
Love is the Key
Truth is the Answer
Faith is the Path
The key of Love sits on the throne of everyone’s heart waiting for the mind to attach to its beauty and constant presence.
When we concentrate and introspect on our perceptions and make room to contemplate life for other human beings whom we are unfamiliar with, we expand our awareness. From this contemplation we can begin to meditate on the interrelationship of all humanity, all of life, the One Presence in all expressed in so many different forms, religions, life styles, philosophies, political views etc… In meditation the mind is centered and focused, one is able to understand the different expressions of the One, the differences are accepted because one’s knowledge is that the manifestations of the One are limitless. The answer to all aversion is truth, the truth is felt and perceived through meditation, the truth being human beings individually and collectively differ greatly, but the differences need not pose intimidation to ones personal realm or worldly existence, the only path for us all to follow inwardly is that of faith and devotion.
Inevitable change, means unavoidable, this is the time to renounce all angers, hatred and resentment with individuals and groups of people here, there, and everywhere. With a calm mind reach into your heart ready to receive the Love of Divine Mother for Divine Mother is the key, the answer and the path.
Do not fear Divine Mother
Fear not knowing Divine Mother
Divine Mother is not the cause of war and the suffering of humanity. Its our ignorance of The Divine that gives birth to the evils of mind and belief that our acts of violence are justified by perceptions of Divine Mother’s will. Each individual and collective religious and political view is thought to be the right one therefore, all opposing views are wrong and should be punished.
Consider,instead that Divine Mother is a loving presence and all Her children are spiritually equal. Listen to your soul, for the children are
listening and watching us all as to how to resolve conflicts and differences. Better to teach them how to have a loving response to each other and all differences rather than a fear reaction of violence based in intimidation and war.
The only battle worth fighting is the battle within against hatred and the desire to destroy each other because we express ourselves differently.
Dictators rule through coercion and physical force. Leaders lead with love which by nature is all accepting and inclusive.
Bless everyone and everything.

Having taught this in January 2002 I offer it as a reminder that the collective consciousness has not changed just rearranged like the child with a plate of unfinished food…
