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 »



Imagine

Posted on August 27th, by ComPassion in Blog, IMAGINE. No Comments

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 »



Wishing You Love Today

Posted on May 1st, by ComPassion in Blog. No Comments

Wishing you love today, on Global Love Day!  What an awesome way to recognize the beauty of love; during our meditation this morning, Joseph referred to love as  “the connective tissue of the universe.”  Quantum Mechanics refers to love as the “unified field.” In Don Miguel Ruiz’s “The Voice of Knowledge, ” he speaks of love as the ultimate truth.  Lies need to be believed in order to exist, so when all that is not true falls away, what is left is love.

It’s so often what we can’t see that has the greatest power and influence in our lives.   For me, love has tremendous influence.  Several mountain ranges, including the incredible, magnificent Rocky Mountains lie between some of the people I love most in the world and myself.  I must voyage across the great Pacific Ocean to reach my family … Read More »



Transform and Thrive!

Posted on March 28th, by ComPassion in Blog. 3 comments

What do the words Transform and Thrive mean to you?

Do you feel empowered by these words?  Inspired?  Ready for change?  One of the most wonderful aspects of living now, in this time, is the awareness of infinite possibilities.  While some may argue that we do not have access to infinite possibilities, science is proving that our thoughts have a direct effect on outcomes.  If we believe that we do not have access to infinite possibilities, we are creating a reality with finite possibilities. 

If you could just take one small step outside of your comfort zone today, what would it be?  If you could do one thing differently today, what would you choose?  In order to transform, one must be open to change.  In order to thrive as a result of these changes, one must be willing to believe that thriving … Read More »



4 Road / Wayeb

Posted on February 9th, by ComPassion in Blog. 2 comments

We are ending our 90 Global Concordance tele-webcast series on a  “4” Road day.  However, we do not feel that something is ending; rather, that something new is beginning.  The collaboration between Common Passion and Mayan Cross has been a powerful reminder to us that we can create amazing programs by enlisting the wisdom and expertise of others who share our common passion: compassion.

As we honor this sacred 4 Road day, we set our intention to continue to be a means for connection and compassion.  This Road energy allows us to look forward to how we can sow, nurture and grow our community over the next several months with the new programs we have planned. While we each follow our individual paths on a daily basis, somehow our “Roads” have all converged to lead us together here.  The momentum that we … Read More »
