I awaken predawn to silence. I move through the dark, chilled-to-the bone cold, eyes open to the magic of now. I breathe deeply, anticipating the gathering for peace. Circles of sanctuary have formed, eyes open and closed – intent on co-creating peace. The music carries me deep inside and around the planet. I feel the raw wounds of pain and loss. I open to the healing power of love. Candle flames flicker intentions of earnest truths – we meld in love of the One. This consciousness flows, connects and activates light in and around the globe and reaches far beyond. Love prevails. We choose to be and see the light. We are One and I step forward, eyes open, heart soft and thankful. Love is the opening door.
