Sabine Lichtenfels states: “We cannot be against war if we don’t dare to envision a different kind of life…so I pray to our own higher self that we dare to awaken, that we dare to be who we really are…We have to step into trust and call all our brothers and sisters to raise the voices toward justice, peace and toward life.” Sabine is founder of the Vision Camp, co-founder of the Peace Research Centre Tamera in Portugal, theologian, and pilgrim in the name of Grace. She initiated the RING OF POWER-A GLOBAL SPIRITUAL NETWORK OF PEACE, a spiritual- political meditation network. “The people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do.” So say our guests on Envision This!, Sabine Lichtenfels and Sami Awad. My wife and I interviewed these two, plus others, from the Vision Camp they have set up on theIsrael-Palestine border.
These people are putting their lives on the line in support of a peaceful settlement to the violence exploding that has killed more than 700 people with 100 children amongst them. Due to the extensive bombing of schools, mosques, hospitals and private homes people can no longer find protection or shelter. Hatred, fear and anger are at a peak in the whole region. In this turbulence, peace workers from Israel, Palestine and other countries are holding a five-day vision camp in the Westbank. In the middle of the war they hold a peace vigil and create a frequency of calmness in which mutual perception, sharing, deep listening, clear thinking and vision building is possible. They say, “Together we can give a clear sign to end the war.” To listen to the interview my wife and I did with these brave people, visit: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/envision-this/2014/07/28/envision-this-from-the-westbank-with-sabine-lichtenfels-and-sami-awad
If you believe peace is possible, please support the publication of Sophia’s Web: Healing our Wounded Nature. This book helps us to see the unifying patterns behind the world religions, philosophies and ways of living. It furthermore helps us to understand who we are, both female and male, in relationship to the living universe. Can we indeed end the insanity and horror as we are seeing it unfold in the Middle East? Can we also end the insanity of corporate rule and the self-righteous arrogance of organized religions that say, “My way is THE way? What if all ways speak to The Way, in the verb sense that Lao Tzu so beautifully expresses in the Tao Te Ching. What if religion was walking in the woods, making love, or tending to the “boo-boo” on your child’s arm. Or, close your eyes and picture a child with her arms raised in an embrace of a starry sky. Could this be the true religion…a sense of belonging and connectedness? Can Sophia’s Web help to elicit that in you and others? Ultimately, The Way is simply Nature’s Process and is not a dogma for one to follow. Follow a dogma or not, you are still following the Way.
