“My vision for the world is of a vibrant, regenerative, open-hearted and wise humanity – diverse, authentic, collaborative, kind, loving, creative, compassionate, rich in spiritual alignment with a higher intelligence, and peacefully living in symbiotic relationship with our planet Earth and all species that call it home.
“So it’s not surprising that I live and work where I do, given that the mission of the Findhorn Foundation and Community is to contribute in very practical ways to the creation of such a world. We do this as an inspiring and inspired living, working demonstration centre, (perfect in our imperfections,) where anyone can participate in a down-to-earth community experiment in personal, social, ecological and economic transformation.
“I’m thankful that others are voicing an alternative view to the rampant fear and anger I’m aware of and share with you this wonderful extract from Jeff Foster’s December newsletter. It really spoke to me.
Don’t focus on what’s ‘wrong’ with the world… See the world as it is … see the light and the dark, the love and the flight from love, the kindness and its forgetting. Understand the world. Forgive the world. Hold the world in your loving arms. She is young, and making mistakes, and learning. And from this place of love, re-enter the world. Stand strong like a rock, illuminating the world with your powerful presence. Speak up for those without a voice … bless the world you are birthing now; do not energise a dying world with your intolerance. Gather together with your brothers and sisters. Discover your true family, beyond colour, race, religion, belief. Unite in the name of love. Now you are not attacking the world but fighting alongside her, and all her angels fight with you.
“And so, in the name of love, we at the Findhorn Foundation stand with you – our global family, and with the joys and sorrows you may be facing, as 2016 draws to a close. We stand with the Sioux and the other First Nation peoples taking a stand on the Standing Rock Reservation; we stand with all those whose worldview is that we are all one, interconnected and interdependent, and who are living this truth in the face of forces which would have them live otherwise. Finally, we stand with people everywhere who are seeking to birth a world that works for all, each in his/her own way, and we do this recognising that oneness contains all of life, including the parts that we regard as the ‘other’.”
