In these times of great change that are sweeping across the globe, humanity is challenged to step into a place of greater awareness and balance. We are constantly being bombarded by images of suffering from around the globe and it is so easy to turn or switch off the channel. In some countries of the world, it is not so easy to turn the channel since change has come and it is here to stay. Join us as we do our part to balance the shift.
A few years ago, during a sacred pilgrimage in the Andes of Peru to Qoyllority , the spirit of (Apu) Mount Ausangate spoke to me and told me to start a worldwide offering to the earth ceremony whose main mission is to share the blessings of Pachamama with the refuges of the planet. Time has passed and spirit is leading me to Germany to perform it with many conscious people at the Bhakti Yoga Summer Festival. As you know, hundreds of thousands of Refuges are streaming into Europe and so many of them are in Germany. Mother Earth's heart is open and she knows how to care for her children. Let us help by planting a fruit tree on June 12th, 2016 . These trees will be be planted with love and the intention that all beings may be rooted in fertile, healthy soil and that they may be fed and loved always.
This ceremony is dedicated to all First Nation people and Refugees who have to feel the brunt of being uprooted from their lands and continue to be subjected to the whims of big business politics.
Being rooted is a trees natural state, its righteous action, its Dharma. It stands strong and beautiful, giving flower, fruit, and refuge under its branches. If left alone and respected, it will always be there, sharing endlessly.
Whats does Refugee mean?
"A person who has been forced to leave their country in order to escape war, persecution, or natural disaster"
It means that they have been uprooted, in a radical way, sometimes from one moment to the next. Surely a traumatic and painful experience on so many levels. Unfortunately, the refugee crisis on this planet during these current times is on a scale never seen before and it is not stopping. We safely watch it from afar on our television screens and feel momentary flashes of empathy that quickly switch into something else, just as fast as we can change a channel.
I know that we are capable of great acts of love, care and respect. I would like to present to you a ceremony of awareness, one that will help to raise consciousness for our brothers and sisters who are homeless, living in camps, traveling great distances across hostile environments to reach refuge, safety, a warm bed, a hot meal, a place where they won't be attacked, assaulted or hurt.
Join me on June 12th, 2016 in a global fruit or nut tree planting ceremony. The reason I am asking people to plant a fruit or nut tree is that the tree is being planted with the intention for the fruit or nut to be shared with everyone. It will be planted thinking about refugees everywhere that need to feel rooted. This will raise our own consciousness and awareness about sharing and help us to connect with those in need everywhere. Let us help our Humanity to be firmly rooted and strong in kindness, gratitude and compassion.
