The hummingbirds have returned to my yard exactly on schedule – last week of April. These winged miracles have made their way back from Brazil and come to carry on their faerie antics in the foothills of the Rockies. If that doesn’t blow your mind right open I can’t think what would.
Ok..what about the 7-year old blind boy, Avett Maness, who played Bohemian Rhapsody on American Idol last night? He says he’s been playing since he was 2. I could hardly get through the song, blubbering gigantic tears into my evening tea. Could Freddie Mercury have conferred with Avett on the other side before incarnating or is this Freddie returned? Mysteries never be understood, only reveled in.
Maybe the most miraculous of all was what I heard at a talk yesterday of the Sustainable Israeli-Palestinian Project. A Palestinian doctor shared with us the volunteer system in place to bring children and elders from rural areas to care facilities hours from their homes, through checkpoints and all kinds of politically placed hoops. Palestinian volunteers and Israeli volunteers from all ends of the political system showing up in droves to support people in need. Political systems are often set up to the detriment of the people they supposedly serve but the human heart, the love that beats in our hearts for the welfare of people whose eyes we look into, overrides any nonsense and barriers.
Many other projects are going on between people to support a viable system in Israel, even in the face of impossible, fear-based political decisions. Ultimately the human heart will triumph because it must.
Today I am committing to seeing only with my heart. I choose not to engage in anti-anything rhetoric. I choose only to see crimes against sentient begins as evidence of severe lack of LOVE. I call these lacking-in-LOVE crimes. No need to go into the details. They are all over the news every day. If we continue to see the crimes as “hate” there is no where to go with this. if we see these actions as lacking in LOVE we know that to add LOVE mitigates the situation and opens our hearts with compassion to those who suffer from lack of LOVE.
PEACE is a verb (as stated by the engineering professor of engineers without borders who spoke at the talk yesterday and whose name totally escapes me) and as such requires action.
Mercury in Aries tells us that thought creates action.
Venus in Aries tells us that action needs to come from the heart.
The Moon in Pisces today knows only compassion and universal LOVE.
I know I am committed to creating more PEACE in this world and I know that PEACE has to begin in my heart. Today i will focus only and entirely on PEACE and what I can do be more PEACE and bring more PEACE to this precious, magical, mysterious reality on this gorgeous planet, our home (all of us)- EARTH.
