An Easter greeting from one of my brethren in Massachusetts:

Sending you LOVE and BLESSINGS on this Easter day.
I am so grateful for you steadfastness, and for your Holy work.
with Love, and in devotion,

Dear Friends and Family,
This Easter morning these words came to me, and I feel moved to share them with you.
Blessings to you.

Song of Easter Morning

We are one life, one body,

in communion with all Life in creation,

whether we know it or not.

As we come to know this,

and as we tend with tenderness to the life we are given,

love and peace will come to be, in everyday sacred living of people on the earth

So that in time people will say:

“yes, this is heaven on earth”.

We are living expressions of God,

learning to live in harmony with all of Life,

celebrating the profound beauty and wonder

of love.

For we are weavings in the patterns of life,

in this evolving tapestry

of Goodness in form,

of Light in breath.

We are coming and we are here to be,

and to create with,

the Spirit that inbides

all form,

and tend to all of life

with great kindness.

Also, after meditating this morning and hearing in my mind a song of a past struggle for emancipation, I felt moved to write something related to our current times, as a song or as a calling forth. Thus the words below, which are the seed-thoughts for a song.

Songs can be sung by many round the world – especially for areas and people where there is particular strife and trouble – can begin to peacefully melt the walls within us, between us, among us. So that indifference to the needs of others melts away, and that the ways of compassion and caring come greatly into being and flourish.

You may feel moved to express or create, or read or explore something, for yourself and/or for the world, as part of the vibration of the symphony of hearts reaching out to transformation the world in peace.

SongPrayer for Easter

Free all nonviolent political prisoners

Reform governments which neglect to honor truth and compassion

Replace financial systems which concentrate wealth at the expense of many

Feed, clothe, and shelter all who need

Nourish the good works of people around the world

Help one another, and do what is yours to do

Live in harmony with the Earth

Let us shine with all the light we are meant to be

Let peace prevail on Earth.
