I joined in on the World Healing Day peace meditation this morning, which I originally read about on Lunaea Weatherstone's blog. I actually woke up at about 5 this morning and couldn't go back to sleep, so I got up and knitted on the sock for my sock class until 6:00 a.m. This kind of knitting is very meditative to me anyways, just knit knit knit, around and around, so I was in a nice contemplative mood at the beginning of my meditation. :o)
My peace meditations always end up focusing on my hope that one day we will learn to live in peace not just with each other, but with Mother Earth. My prayer for 2008 is that more of us will learn to live gentle on our Great Mother.
My title for this post comes from the movie Cool Runnings, about the Jamaican bobsled team, which is one of my all time favorite movies. A strange fact about me - no matter how many times I watch this movie, I always cry when they pick up their bobsled after their wreck and walk across the finish line.
Peace be your journey for 2008!
