My vision is to empower others to become aware of their true natures, and to help them live more joyfully and consciously.
What is crucial today is awareness of Self and its vital role in guiding each of us to our true place in life, and our relationship to the whole. This is a state of being that empowers each person to enjoy every moment of every day and understand the seeds of opportunity that disguise themselves as challenges and obstacles.
Genocide underway in Burma - We must act with ONE Voice!
There is currently a genocide underway in Burma – as you
read this, an "ethnic cleansing" is happening, with unspeakable horrors being
committed against the peaceful Rohingya people. The President of Burma,
Thein Sein, has done nothing so far.
What is the crime of the Rohingya people? Why are they
hated so much? Is it because they are murderers, or terrorists?
No. Is it because they are polluting the land, destroying vital crops?
No. They are hated “simply because” their skin is darker and the majority
fear they’re 'taking jobs away'.
The real question before us is not why do we continue to witness so much suffering and violence, but rather why do we allow it?
I agree that this question may be difficult for us to hear - however, whilst this life-threatening situation is most certainly not our fault, it is most certainly our responsibility.
Are we going to stand by and idly watch hundreds of
thousands of innocent people be massacred from the comfort and safety of our own homes? Or are we going to cry out to
all of our powerful world governments and insist that they do something!
Burmese President Thein Sein has the power and resources to
protect the Rohingya. All he has to do is give the word to make it
happen. Yet, rather than deal with this urgent situation, he is instead
looking to come to Europe to sell his country’s new openness to trade. It
These terrible atrocities happening on our planet continue
to be tolerated, regardless of the fractures they create in our collective
unconscious, because we continue to put commerce before vital, humanitarian
interests; because we have constructed our individual and collective lives
around such false paradigms as 'survival of the fittest', we continue to
experience life as a massive struggle.
Right now is the time to change all of this nonsense – and we must
act, with urgency! All of us, together, as ONE voice. This situation demands it.
To change the results we are witnessing, we have to change
ourselves; we cannot keep saying we are going to change things but then fail to
We cannot keep listening to greedy, naive or inept politicians, and those governments and institutions who would deliberately mislead us, and then seek
to placate us with excuses of how they could do nothing, and how their hands were 'tied', when they could easily move into action.
We keep waiting for a better time, a better future... but it
never arrives because we have not arrived. We have not had the courage to act as ONE. To be as ONE.
Natural disasters are terrible enough when they do happen, yet human acts of war and genocide are many times worse. They betray us all at the deepest level.
The invitation is to BE HERE NOW. To act from presence, not
What will you do today? What stance will you take?
Will you shrug your shoulders and walk away – or will you sound the clarion
call of freedom, respect and dignity for all?
We cannot allow this to become another Rwanda, or Sarajevo....
