Subject: Peace Meditation Focus Group proposal

Hello everyone

Over the course of the last 3 weeks, a small group of people from various countries has started a discussion about the opportunity of creating a means through which we could better coordinate our efforts to assist through our meditations and prayers in the peaceful resolution of the various crisis and conflictual situations regularly occuring around the world.

The process of this discussion has gradually led to the formulation of the following proposal on which we would appreciate receiving your comments and reactions to further contribute to this co-creative project.

If you are interested in reviewing a compilation of all the emails exchanged so far in this discussion process, you can download all of them from:
(Initial Post & Feedbacks)
and from:
(First Draft Proposal and Comments Received)

This proposal is presented as a complement of the existing Internet networking system already provided through the Planetary Awakening Network (PAN) and will mainly operate through it, but also through other networks of similar intents. If this proposal meets with a generally favourable reception, it could also be integrated as part of the PAN structure. However it must be understood that the purpose on the following "Peace Meditation Focus Group" is not to overview in any way the policies and inner working of the PAN system.

Your comments and reactions can be emailed to me and they will be forwarded to the initial core group making this proposal and later on compiled and archived on the Earth Rainbow Network (ERN) website for a review by all those interested to read the comments received - if you do not want your comments to be forwarded to anyone or posted on a website, please make sure to make it clear in your feedback.

And if you are interested in taking an active role and making a long term commitment as part of this Focus Group, please let us know in your response.

Thank you for your consideration of this proposal

Proposal for the creation of a Peace Meditation Focus Group

The purpose of this initiative is to facilitate a greater cooperation and
synchronisation between those who work or wish to work for peace and healing
on Earth through meditation and other consciousness-raising techniques.
There are already a number of extensive networks dedicated to this aim, such
as the Planetary Awakening Network with which we intend to work.

To further this aim we are putting forward a proposal for the formation of a
core group (the "Peace Meditation Focus Group") to better coordinate the efforts
of everyone interested. By doing so we believe that we will be providing the
means for a greater degree of order to emerge from what sometimes seems to be an
unfocused and - to some extent - individualistic movement of people, and
thereby increase the power and resonance of our collective healing intent.

This project is based upon the following three ideas and principles:

i) We are all interconnected and we can all resonate to one another as many
have experienced during previous global meditations.

ii) The more our minds and hearts are united around a common purpose through
synchronized meditation and intent, the more powerful is our collective effect.

iii) In meditation we become receptive to our essential unity with All That Is,
and by so doing can act as channels for the further reception of
this spiritual awareness and its unlimited love, wisdom, and power into the
collective consciousness. This is particularly so when we are joined with
each other in meditation and are allowing the powerful effect of this
collective awareness to radiate out to all life.

Suggestions for the Project

1. The Golden Moment of At-Onement

The simplest suggestion that may first come to mind is to encourage everyone
to dedicate at least once a day a few minutes of their time, at any hour, to
closing their eyes, opening their heart, and connecting with the worldwide
web of meditators, and to let the power of universal love uplift their
consciousness and enhance the resonance of this vibration of love within
all. Thus, wherever you are, and whenever you participate, you will know and
may sense that countless others are experiencing, just like you, a moment of
At-Onement with Life, and in so doing, are helping to catalyze the
spiritual awakening within humanity that will enable the peaceful resolution
of conflicts to be reached and the reorientation of human priorities towards
satisfying the basic survival and evolutionary needs of all on Earth.

2. The Global Peace Day

In addition to this regular practise that will both accelerate the
spiritual awakening of every participant and help generate a global
atmosphere of peace and compassion towards all life, we can also consider
the possibility of uniting once a week, every Sunday at noon local time or at any other time of the day that best suits you, for the purpose of facilitating the peaceful resolution of potential or existing conflicts in the world.

To help set the main focus (or foci) of each of those weekly global meditations,
we propose that a core group of persons agrees to establish a set of simple,
clear and flexible criteria that will guide the selection of the situation(s)
that warrant some urgent collective healing attention, and, on every Friday,
issue the suggested list of places and problems requiring such attention.

Anyone would be welcome to submit issues and situations to the core group
that are deemed urgent and critical enough to necessitate a global focus
of healing, peaceful and love-filled energies.

The core group would need to be small enough (possibly 7 people) to be able
to quickly and efficiently select each weekly list of situations requiring
our attention. The core group should be as balanced as possible, its members
representing as diverse a range of viewpoints as possible. The core group
should avoid selecting from a purely intellectual perspective what the most
pressing issues are, and pledge their intention to act from their spiritual
centre, checking within for the appropriateness of selecting any proposed
situation as a priority for everyone. The core group members would make sure
that the wording and complexion of top-priority requests are general or
basic enough to avoid tinging the ultimate preferred outcome with preconceived
ideas and judgements as to what it should be.

Our aim is to respect the free-will evolution of all, and to dedicate all
we do to the highest good of the individual and the whole.

"For the highest good of all" could be the permanent motto and
overall focus for all issues marked for each weekly collective meditation.

Finally, this proposal does not preclude anyone from submitting information
on suggested meditation linkups or other initiatives directly to others through the Planetary Awakening Network of through any other channel.
