This New Year’s Eve, we can all take one small action for peace on Earth and goodwill towards humankind.
It is my honor to participate in Pujas for Peace (www.pujasforpeace.org), a movement that is uniting religious and spiritual organizations around the world this New Year’s Eve by inviting them and their communities to a simple call to action. Their request is : At any time of your choosing on December 31st, gather by a fire (simply lighting a candle will do) and pray or meditate to spread positive energy out into the world.
I am lending my voice to this cause because I am passionate about anything where people of all beliefs, modalities, and paths can find a common ground to unite as One.
How fortuitous that this year New Year’s Eve falls on the last night of Chanukah. Whether we are standing beside a Chanukah candle on New Year’s Eve, attending a puja fire ceremony, or lighting a single candle, I am inviting all our communities around the world, and all of my friends on social media to join me in this simple action of lighting a candle and applying our consciousness to the following prayer: “Let there be peace on Earth, and love for one another.”
May this prayer for peace reverberate out into the world and create for us a most glorious and harmonious 2017. Wishing you all a very happy and blessed New Year!
