Global Water Ceremony

Posted on October 7th, by ComPassion in Blog, Events, IMAGINE. 2 comments

We invite you to participate in a Global Water Ceremony, aligned with the Waitaha Water Gathering October 15, 16, 17, 18 in New Zealand: www.waitahawatergathering.com.

This Global Water Ceremony will also be shared by First Nations around the world including Wandering Wolf (Tata Cirilo, aka Don Alejandro, Grand Elder of the Maya) and other Mayan elders in Guatemala.

These days are opportunities to meet water as the living blood of Gaia and as a sacred essence in all life. Of course we can honor water before and after this Global Water Ceremony. There are no set agendas, leaving ample creativity for you or your group to create ceremony to appreciate water in all its forms and honor water in and around us.

From one of the organizers, Sjoerd Aardema of Para Pachamama www.parapachamama.org:

We dream of the many Nations that on the days of … Read More »



I AM: From Imagining to Manifesting Part 2

Posted on September 14th, by ComPassion in Blog, IMAGINE. 1 Comment

Imagine there are no boundaries, no limits.  Imagine that the possibilities are infinite. Look at your life now and see what you find.  As you read through this post, I invite you to receive this as an offering of another perspective…try it on and see how it fits!

Now don’t simply imagine a collective vision… 

Look at our world and SEE that it also reflects our collective vision of “I am…” The principle is unfailing because we unwittingly engage the power that creates our realities when we affirm whatever follows I AM. This is how it is closer and dearer than our own breath and heart.

I AM is the clearest, least distorted statement in the human language that expresses the Infinite Presence that infuses all matter of being in the universe. I AM is our quintessential nature and our nature fulfilled. Our reality, individually and … Read More »



From Imagining to Manifesting Part 1

Posted on September 6th, by ComPassion in Blog, IMAGINE. No Comments

A word related to imagining is manifesting.

Manifesting is the making expressed or visible that which is implied or invisible.

How do we manifest our collective destiny, while simultaneously involved in a personal one, when everyone seems to be heading in different directions? To make matters more challenging, some people see their destiny along a predetermined course of events, while others see it as a hopeless struggle against forces that bring sadness, pain, fear and despair. Yet another potent group see their destiny as inseparable from the human species’ ability to manifest higher possibilities of a greater pattern or design, which some call G-d , Cosmic Consciousness, Infinite Presence, Christ, Buddha, the Messiah, etc. 

How do we cocreate a collective destiny that is aligned with our greatest potential? The answer appears too complex on the surface; yet, there is a simple way…a very powerful way.

What I Imagined…

Posted on September 3rd, by ComPassion in Blog, IMAGINE. No Comments

What I Imagined almost 16 years ago…

As we were planning the IMAGINE Global Concordance for the International Day of Peace on September 21st 2014, I was reminded of what I imagined almost exactly 16 years ago in 1998.

And what I imagined became the vision for what would eventually become Common Passion.

In 1998, after years of deep exploration into the nature of life, human consciousness and the human potential when we shared coherently our deepest intentions in heart and mind, I launched www.InfinityAffinity.org. Its premise was based on the answer to this question, which is still carried forward today through Common Passion:

If a world peace meditation performed once a year can help to realize peace in the world, what would happen if we did this every day for other exciting possibilities as well?

Out of this question came the vision I imagined. … Read More »



I Imagine…

Here’s a day in the life I imagine….

I imagine waking up just after daybreak on a warm summer morning surrounded by my nearby “tribe,” including my son Josh.

I rest a bit more, stretch some and then work with a few others to prepare a breakfast of organic food we grow, including wild edibles. Then after we eat and have coffee or tea, a number of us work cultivating and harvesting plants while the others do other community chores until mid day when it becomes hot.

We then break for lunch that I help prepare for others, and after we eat, another group cleans up.

Next, I imagine that some of us go swimming or float on a raft in our man-made lake. Then many of us rest during the heat of the day. After that we finish a few personal chores and … Read More »



Imagine

Just imagine….

Imagine a world without pain, sorrow, poverty or violence.

Back in October 1971, John Lennon released this beautiful, inspiring song that encourages us to imagine a world of oneness. A world without judgements, borders or violence. There are many renditions of this song by many talented artists.

Almost everyone I know has memorized some of the lyrics of “Imagine.”

Many causes and organizations have used this song as inspiration. Einstein said that “the true sign of intelligence it is not knowledge but imagination.”

Imagination is our gift and it is our imaginations that bring us ideas for new discoveries and developments. It is up to us how we use the ideas we imagine and Lennon’s song is a true gift to humanity that causes us to examine our contribution to life on this mysterious blue planet of ours.

Over 40 years later, this song … Read More »
