Our future hope for peace and harmony is rooted in the children we are now nurturing. During the annual three day Earth Dance Festival for peace in Northern California, I saw great reason for hope in the serene faces of the children. These love children are born into a world of love and liberation created by their enlightened parents and their extended village. They are born free. And with peace in their hearts they can make peace in the world.
I realize that, like myself, many were not born free. We have had to struggle to liberate ourselves from limiting religions, ideas and expectations. Many never achieve true liberation and the beautiful state of freedom that these love children are born into.
It takes a whole village to raise such beautiful children. What an amazing tribal village Earth Dance is during its three days. Populated by loving children of all ages, music, dance and metaphorical puppets.
The prayer ceremony for the children honors the hope and beauty that the children represent. The festival’s prayer for peace is synchronized worldwide at the same moment with gatherings in 50 other countries. Let’s hope that this prayer envelops the entire globe and transforms our world.
Peace, love and magic are alive and well when you look in the right places.
