No Peace among nations without peace among religions. No Peace among religions without dialouge between the religions. No dialogue between the religions without global eithical standards. No survival of our globe without global ethics.
Ivy and Ziggy had returned. Ivy, fascinated by the Professor's words asked, "What's Quantia, Professor Angelicus?"
"Why, Quantia is the Rainbow Planet. You could say it's in the center of the universe, in the flash between moments of time and space. It was created out of water and light, at the very place where the light meets and shimmers off the water. Some of us call it the Land of Sparkle. You can look into the windows of Quantia from here. You can see it from almost anywhere, if you look hard enough."
"We can?" cried the children, "How?"
In a gentle voice, he pointed: "Look at the sun sparkling on the river. Look at the dewdrops glistening on the trees. Walk through a puddle of rain, and when the sun comes out, you'll see it! You can even see it in the eyes of your fellow earthlings when they laugh!” And with that, he let out the deepest, heartiest laugh the children had ever heard, and his eyes began to twinkle like a thousand blue stars on a clear winter night.
"We Are ONE. We are ONE spirit, we are connected. It is by living intentionally that we will create the changes needed within our world. It is by living by the guidance within that we will find our peace. "The silence between the notes creates the beauty that is music." And so it is with the spaces of our lives. From out of the silence, our in-spirations can be realized. From out of the silence, the directions to our dreams can be heard. As we unfold the layers of ourselves, we find the Truth of Who We Are. We are ONE. We are Spirit. And we ARE Peace.
When we focus on our oneness, we know peace. When we see ourselves in others, we claim peace. We Are ONE".(Lyrics, "We Are One" by Amy Ellis)
"Why should there be hunger and deprivation in any land, in any city, at any table, when man has the resources and the scientific know-how to provide all mankind with the basic necessities of life?" ~Martin Luther King, Jr.
