There is an ever growing movement in the spiritual sphere uniting all human souls towards reintegration and unity as one collective soul, which is just a tiny aspect of God/Creator. Today this process is speeding up thanks to the countless opportunities offered to spiritual seekers to discover their true nature and unite through meditation work and souls-connecting global coalescence as one global body, mind and soul. This process has also been hastened by special global events regularly proposed, now mostly through the Internet, whose aim is to bring together in spiritual service and communion as many people as possible in an effort both to offset the global tendencies towards negatively inclined thoughts and emotions and also to cocreate a massive Light pulse and catalyze a Love response as a solution to regional and world conflicts and as an incremental way to bring ever more Light consciousness on Earth.
As a contribution to global awakening and soul activations of pre-birth self-appointed mission and agreed achievement of chosen goals, we are invited to continue with ever more steadfastness and dedication the ongoing global spiritual healing work with the aim of sustaining by our radiant presence a continuous flow of positive vibrations and emotionally balanced emanations of Love, Peace and Harmony to every single being on Earth and beyond.
Please dedicate your prayers and meditations, as guided by Spirit, in the coming THREE weeks, and especially in synchronous attunement at the usual time this Sunday and the following two Sundays, to foster spiritual oneness on Earth, for the Highest Good of All.

3. MORE INFORMATION RELATED TO THIS MEDITATION FOCUS
This complement of information may help you to better understand the various aspects pertaining to the summary description of the subject of this Meditation Focus.
We are in the midst of a quickening of consciousness. Great numbers of us are becoming aware that humanity is in the throes of an epochal challenge: the necessity of transforming our relationship to the Earth. To do this, I believe, there must be a spiritual revolution, a vast collective awakening.
For all those touched by this awakening there are two common elements: the experience of a living Presence or Energy, and the deep knowing that our human destiny and the health of the Earth are inextricably linked.
It is the experience of the Presence that allows us to realize that we are lived by a deeper intelligence that is universal. I recall how many times over the years I have inducted people into energy awareness during certain exercises in my work. Regardless of nationality, age, race, or gender, the most common experience reported is that of unconditional love. People feel a loving presence moving through them and radiating from them. They are deeply moved that they can feel so connected to another person whom they may have only known briefly. To have such a natural feeling of love that is free of desire or neediness, without fear of rejection is confirmation that there is a universal intelligence that unites us. This intelligence brings us home to ourselves in a way that transcends our differences and the beliefs that divide us. This experience of Energy and Love cuts across all social and religious boundaries. And it is this universal spirituality that is our true nature which is the foundation upon which we can build our collective future.
Spiritual Oneness is not enough in itself; a living spirituality has to have a body and the body we all ultimately share is the Earth. It is a frightening irony that by bringing such harm to the Earths ecosystems and thus to our own health we are being forced to awaken to the obvious truth that without a thriving Earth there is no future for humanity. The deification of "the economy," its priority over our health and the health of our planet, is a madness that will only stop when we have realized our true universal spiritual nature and understand that the Earth, in a very real sense, is our Mother and we must live by Her natural laws.
Nearly twenty-five years ago Life gave me the gift of awakening to my True Self. Suddenly, by no effort of my own, I knew who I was and the Presence became a current living continuously in my awareness. I have had these many years in which to learn more completely what it was that Awakened and to work diligently on the emotionally unenlightened areas of my personal psychology. This winter, after months of deep contemplation of the environmental issues, I find myself called to devote myself, in any way I can, to furthering the shared vision of millions of people awakening to their True Nature and turning all our love and genius to the task of restoring the Earths ecology. I am dedicating my life to the awakening and empowerment of wise leaders who are spiritually rich, psychologically mature and committed to serve Life.
I have enormous optimism that we can make this change. It will take time, but make it we will and we must begin immediately. I am grateful to be a servant of this vision along with so many others. It is a work for all conscious people. Enlightenment is meaningless if it is not also a choice to live in harmony with each other and with Nature.
I invite you to join me for this all-important work
In service to Life, together,

Statement of Principles
Believing that the fate of planet Earth and its vast diversity of living organisms is being threatened with destruction and extinction as never before in history, we acknowledge our responsibility and affirm our commitment:
* To promote attitudes and policies which will seek to prevent the abuse and suffering of all living creatures and protect them from becoming threatened or endangered.
* To preserve the biological support systems upon which all life depends, including but not limited to forests, topsoils, coral reefs, and wetlands.
* To stabilize the growth of the human population so that it will not exceed the carrying capacity of the land or displace other forms of life.
* To choose a renewable energy path that will not endanger wildlife, destroy the forests, pollute the waters, or degrade the atmosphere.
* To support an agricultural system that is sustainable, equitable, and humane.
* To be conscientious in our dietary practices, ever mindful that our eating practices can have a major impact on human and animal suffering as well as environmental degradation.
* To do everything possible to prevent pollution by reusing, repairing, and recycling wherever possible.
The Light Series #64: Enlightening Magical Inspiration
Highly recommended to your attention...
The Unity of All Things
(...) In the seeming myriad of entities around us, Teilhard perceives a unity: "My starting point is the fundamental initial fact that each one of us is perforce linked by all the material organic and psychic strands of his being to all that surrounds him." Moreover, that unity reaches back in time and continues into the future: "If we look far enough back in the depths of time, the disordered anthill of living beings suddenly, for an informed observer, arranges itself in long files that make their way by various paths towards greater consciousness." CLIP
A Foreboding of the Internet
(...) Crucial to the process of human evolution, i.e. to progress is, in Teilhard's view, scientific research. In the past such investigations were isolated, sometimes no more than the hobbies of individuals. "Today we find the reverse: research students are numbered in the hundreds of thousands-soon to be millions-and they are no longer distributed superficially and at random over the globe, but are functionally linked together in a vast organic system that will remain in the future indispensable to the life of the community. One can't but think of today's "Internet," yet this was written forty-six years ago. CLIP
Bridging Heaven & Earth
An international spiritual talk show, produced by The Bridging Heaven & Earth Foundation (for more information on the Foundation, please go to the Foundation Page at http://www.heaventoearth.com/foundation.htm), focuses on opening the heart; bridging the spiritual and the physical, the human and the divine, heaven and earth within each one and the Oneness in all Life. (...) Conceived as an alternative to mind-numbing, dark, and disempowering TV talk shows like Jerry Springer, Bridging Heaven and Earth is a television show dedicated to heart-opening, spiritually uplifting ideas of oneness. Now entering its 14th season as a cable TV show, Bridging Heaven and Earth is broadcast in over 100 cities across the United States and will soon be in Canada and Europe, as well. Host Allan Silberhartz interviews an impressive list of spiritually oriented and "new age" guests from around the world, including many names you've seen in the pages of Magical Blend. There's always a musical guest, and the productions are surprisingly beautiful, thanks to its crew of professional volunteers. The conversation is transformational, and spans every spiritual tradition. To find out if and where it airs in your area (or how to request it) check out their website, where you can also access audio files of previous shows. Bridging Heaven and Earth is television that makes a difference.
