Global Mala (that's us!) :)

There are so many amazing events upcoming reminding us of our peace and interconnectedness--I am so joyful to see all of the beautiful beings who are working together to share loving intentions for the earth and eachother!

Here is a wonderful post about one called the Global Mala Project from Peggy and Curtis on their Solutions blog. It describes an ecstatic string of loving consciousness rising to connect all beings and the earth.

From their site:
"As we approach the Autumn Equinox it is a time to recognize the abundance that summer has brought us. Fall is a time for celebrating harvest and enjoying a last taste of freshness as we shift into a cool, more introspective time.

On September 23, the fall equinox, people all over the world will be participating in a "Global Mala". We will be creating a wave of sun salutations sending peace energy into the global consciousness. To become involved, all you have to do is perform the salutations. If you want to go a step further, look for participating local yoga studios or encourage your local studio to participate. There is a website, www.globalmala.org, where you can find out alot more. Check out the videos they have posted there which are truly inspiring."

Their posting is wonderful--you can check it out here: click for link

I was thinking of a picture to illustrate the idea of a beautiful human chain reaching lovingly around the earth (the Global Mala), and I thought of the most amazing thing. Every year the Rainbow Family of Living Light gathers somewhere in the states for 2 weeks of camping, music and joy, culminating in a silent peace circle thousands strong at noon on the 4th of July. Everything is free or for barter--$ is only allowed for donations for food ingredients for those who travel outside of the gathering for supplies to feed everyone inside. It was so beautiful to experience that--all of the same love we extend to our friends and community, to all beings, and the planet, but in that moment, you can actually see it happening on a bigger scale. (Feels just like sangha!).

Namaste!
