Lakota elder, Selo Black Crow, once told me that, "When a group of women come together to pray, anything is possible." He suggested that we change the timing of the prophecies.
As soon as he said that to me, I began thinking, 'Why just change the timing of the prophecies? Why not change the prophecies themselves?"
Regardless of your particular political preference, religion, gender, economic status, ethnicity, or sexual orientation, its time for all of us to come together in prayer / meditation / intention for the common good.
I remember as a child thinking that all of life was black or white. This is good and that is bad. This is right and that is wrong. As I get older, the more gray the world appears. Just because someone does not believe as I believe or look the way I look does not mean they are a bad person to be feared, judged, or made wrong.
The Golden Rule is taught in every religion. Yet few people make it a daily practice - particularly when it comes to people unlike themselves. They point fingers and condemn others, spewing hatred all the while. This is not the way of Jesus. This is not the way of Buddha. This is not the way of any great teacher who came to help humanity help themselves. (http://www.spiritofnature.org/goldenrule.htm)
I find our diversity refreshing, interesting, and something to celebrate.
