We Are One
It seemed that for at least one day, the world of spirit and the world of humanity had come together in the extraordinary Paris march. Out of a background of acts of extremism, hatred and unthinkable violence there suddenly arose a ringing response affirming unity, equality and brotherhood. Over a million people in Paris alone made a personal choice to step forward and be a visible presence embracing the values of the Other in society. Replacing the words of unchallenged deep divisiveness and conflict that we have grown accustomed to hearing were affirmations that we are all fundamentally one people. Many observers noted that day that something had fundamentally shifted.
In the eternal world of the creative spirit, by way of contrast, many people have experienced the presence of unending peace, unbridled creativity, and the astonishing power of a collective community. I was gifted with the experience of connecting with all of this held in a particular place on the planet, at the hilltop of the Standing Stones of Callanish. Meditating to strengthen my relationship to this source of spiritual power and inspiration, I longed to know how we as humans could discover the availability of this consciousness that could fundamentally transform our life on earth. It seemed a stretch. That has been the question for people of spirit over eons of time. And yet, for a day, there was a world of new possibilities visible to the world. Halleujah!
