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 »
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 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, 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 »
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 »
We hope that you will join us for our next Common Passion Global Concordance 11/Sun on Thursday, January 10th 2013. As part of our 90 day series, our next call will honor not only the energies associated with January 10th 2013 but also the prophecies and the teachings of the Maya. Contrary to what pop culture tells us, the Maya are very much alive and millions of Maya celebrate their ancient culture in Central America. We are very grateful to Barbara Sadtler from Mayan Cross as she brings her many years of studying with the Maya to help us share this program with you.
The last time we saw Sun on the Tzolkin, the Sacred Mayan calendar, was December 21, 2012. The sun is a powerful symbol in many cultures and the Mayan culture is no exception to this. Sun is … Read More »
