Invitation for togetherness on Earth Day

I LOVE MY PLANET – I LOVE MY EARTH Invitation for togetherness on Earth Day Dear Friends, We live tumultuous times and our collective energy, our thoughts and our love are needed to pray, to meditate and to offer healing for all the injured souls in the recent terrorist attack in Boston and for all the souls that suffer on our planet. Mother Earth also suffers from pollution, from chemical spills and discharges and from the general neglect of its inhabitants. She needs our support, our protection, our healing energy and our compassionate love. I ask you all to come together with me and offer meditations, healing energy and blessings of love for peace and healing on Earth for all humanity and nature. On Monday April 22, I invite you to the Saratoga Hakone Japanese gardens for an afternoon of fun, joy, blessings, and initiation. I will lead a spiritual meditation to connect with the energies of Mother Earth for healing and grounding; and, in a spiritual meditation of gratitude and blessing for Mother Earth. We shall send our group blessings to the Earth, the Sky, the Water, and to Nature. We shall pray for Peace and Healing for all the victims of the terrorist attack in Boston. Individually, in silence, we will connect with trees, flowers and the environment to offer our love, healing, and blessing. This is going to be a fun afternoon dedicated to the planet and to be spent outdoors in the beautiful surroundings of Hakone Gardens. The price of this experiential workshop is $20; this covers the entrance fee and a donation to the organization “Save the Planet”. This is strictly a labor of love without any financial profit. The address is Hakone Estate and Gardens, 21000 Big Basin Way, Saratoga CA 95070, www.hakone.com We will meet in front of the gate at 2PM.

Ending the Year with Joy

Joy, pure and unalterated joy is a rather new feeling to me and I deeply regret that I did not know how to cultivate it many years earlier. The meaning of joy was a secret to me, nothing but a word from books or movies, the meaning of which totally escaped me. I learned to discover joy through an assignment given to me to at a seminar about personal development.  I had to schedule each week an activity that created joy for me. I enjoy creating a flower arrangement, or to teach a seminar, or go on a pilgrimage, but to do something every week just for myself was a totally new concept for me and I was not able to accept it not even as an assignment. This year however, I have discovered joy in a different way, by connecting with Sammy, a beautiful lioness cub only 2 months old in Cabo San Lucas in Mexico. Her love, her full trust in me when I was holding her in my arms, her tenderness, and her acceptance taught me that joy is a simple feeling of fulfillment. It all happens when you are in touch with another being.

The Blessing of Christmas

Just like many of us I have discovered Christmas in my early childhood. Christmas meant snow then, a beautiful Christmas tree, and of course the gifts. The best of all though was being able to spend more time at home with my parents in that joyful atmosphere of celebration. I remember the smell of Christmas in our home like it was yesterday: the cookies the tree, the hot wine and the fresh coffee.  Christmas meant then a refuge in a wonderland of calm, peace, safety and joy. I have truly discovered Christ in Israel, during my pilgrimage last year. I still remember His embracing energies of love and kindness, and His lessons of divine wisdom encrypted everywhere in all His sacred places of power. I have also discovered Christ in the church of the Jesus Infant of Prague, not in Prague the capital city of the CzechRepublic, but in Prague, Oklahoma a Shrine that I had come upon through a miracle during a trip across country.  I knelt in front of the Infant Jesus praying that He will be by my side throughout my whole life’s journey and I felt the most pure love embracing my heart. These days I pray for Jesus to be touching us all with His divine peace and love. Blessed be your Christmas as well, and may you be full of joy this holiday season, and may you feel the Christic love in your heart.
