3. More on this Special Meditation Focus
NOTE: Since it is likely that a new Meditation Focus will not be issued this Friday for the week beginning on Sunday November 12, there will simply be an extension of the Meditation Focus #26 on "Protecting all Marine Life on Earth". To review the material already prepared for this previous focus, please go at http://www.aei.ca/~cep/MeditationFocus26.htm
November 11 is the anniversary of the signing of armistice at the end of World War I. Throughout the world at 11:11 local time, many will observe a moment of silence. At this time in the Middle East, a Peace Pole bearing the message "May Peace Prevail on Earth" in four languages will be planted at the dedication of a Peace Park in Bethany, near Jerusalem, by Deborah Moldow of the World Peace Prayer Society. She says: "Let us gather our own heart energies to envision together a new kind of future for this region where all sides learn to respect and honor one another as the desert blooms with abundance for all". This event will launch a Global Peace Parks initiative dedicated to Building a Culture of Peace as the culmination of a Global Summit on Peace Through Tourism in Amman, Jordan. May the Peace Pole, one of 200,000 Peace Poles around the world, herald the coming of a new kind of peace on earth, planting our highest intentions deeply within the soil of Jordan.
This year on November 11 there will be a Full Moon, which will heighten the energies of meditation. Symbolically, Full Moons represent a time of maximum light or enlightenment, and in many spiritual traditions are used to aid spiritual attunement. They are now used regularly for global meditation linkups.
Please hold in your heart and mind a vision of our global awakening to unity, love, and peace. Unite in meditation with the forces of divine evolution and experience the healing of all relations as we awaken to the sacredness of all Life and to our underlying unity with All That Is, for the highest good of all.

3. MORE ON THIS SPECIAL MEDITATION FOCUS
The following complementary information coming from various sources is provided for your convenience only and does not necessarily represent an endorsement by the Global Meditation Focus Group of these organizations in their other activities, although we do readily support their current initiatives included below.
i) From the World Peace Prayer Society
Meditation for A New Vision of Peace on Earth
You are invited to participate in a very special meditation on 11/11 at 11:00 in your time zone. At this time, a Peace Pole bearing the message "May Peace Prevail on Earth" in four languages will be planted at the dedication of a Peace Park in Bethany Beyond the Jordan, site of the baptism of Jesus.
This event will launch a Global Peace Parks initiative dedicated to Building a Culture of Peace as the culmination of a Global Summit on Peace Through Tourism in Amman, Jordan.
We all have an intuitive understanding that the current stress on the peace process in the Middle East is threatening to tear a hole in the heart of our planet. Let us gather our own heart energies to envision together a new kind of future for this region where all sides learn to respect and honor one another as the desert blooms with abundance for all.
11/11 is the anniversary of the Treaty of Versailles [Focus Group editorial note - the armistice and not the Versailles Treaty was signed on November 11] designed "to end all wars." May the Peace Pole, one of 200,000 Peace Poles around the world, herald the coming of a new kind of peace on earth, planting our highest intentions deeply within the soil of Jordan.
More than simply an agreement signed by governments, let the new peace reflect the peace in the eyes of the traveler who appreciates each culture for its beautiful gifts. This is the peace that will honor the Holy Land and all its citizens who burn the flame of their faiths so brightly there.
Share the vision of 11/11 at 11:00:
May Peace Prevail on Earth!

iii) From World Puja
A special Earth Pulse Initiative is scheduled for Sunday, November 12, 2000 at 2:00PM (New York) to revisit our Middle East Peace Vigil. Once again a WorldPuja webcast with huge global participation was followed by an upgrade in the Peace process in the Middle East. However, it is still unstable in the region and the Peace Talks delicate and wavering. IT'S TIME TO DO IT AGAIN.
Arafat said in an interview last week it would take a million strong prayers to create peace. Gregg Braden's statements in our last vigil webcast indicate that scientists say it may take WAY less than that to cause a shift in the reality of Peace in the Middle East. JOIN US FOR THIS IMPORTANT VIGIL for that will honor the Holy Land and its yearning for Peace. YOUR PARTICIPATION CAN MAKE THE DIFFERENCE!!!
JOIN US ON www.worldpuja.org on Sunday, November 12, 2000 at 2:00PM (New York) for a LIVE WORLDWIDE VIGIL with Gregg Braden, James Twyman, Doreen Virtue and a special guest anchor Jerusalem to focus on LASTING PEACE IN THE MIDDLE EAST.
Together we can extend healing prayers that contain the energy to shift the recent violence away from destruction and toward a world based upon peace and compassion. LASTING PEACE with FREEDOM in the Middle East.
iv) From James Twyman
"Mr. Arafat said that peace will not come to the Middle East without a million strong prayers. We intend to give him just that!!! Go to LINK WWW.EmissaryofLight.com and write your own one-line prayer. (There will be a counter there to let you know what number your prayer is.) When we have one million prayers of peace, I will personally travel to Israel with a scroll containing all the prayers to be presented to Mr. Arafat and Mr. Barak. This is your chance to let your voice be heard. Through the Internet we have the ability to supply him with these prayers within weeks. Contribute your prayer NOW!"
