Pope Francis came to America this week. He came at a time of internal strife that rivals no other time in our history. The strife is religious, ideological, racial and economic. In the midst of this strife, the media has chosen to focus on the religious, ideological, racial and economic overtones of his visit. What I see as he waves gracefully from his Pope-mobile and/or Fiat is peace.
This Pope deliberately chose a symbol of conscious peace for his name and has consciously chosen to demonstrate peace in action. As he visits each country, a little more of peace consciousness is deposited. As a people, we can choose to focus on the Church doctrines that have not been overturned or we can focus on the peaceful countenance before us.
He promotes caring for the poor, economic sharing and seeing a connection between ALL humans as we live on this earth. I am not Catholic, but I hold him in the highest reverence not for his position but for his actions and his heart.
Days after the September 11 attack, Oprah presented a panel to discuss our next actions. Marianne Williamson was a part of the panel and suggested that we form small groups to pray for peace. I had no clue regarding conscious shifts at the time, but now I clearly see her intention.
Peace consciousness is attainable. It requires a critical mass of humans desiring Peace continually at the same time. That is the goal of this site – to promote a critical mass action.
Will you join me and others? Everyday at noon (wherever you are in the world) say these words “Peace be with you and Peace be with the world.” Form small groups to pray for Peace in your community until SHIFT happens!
