Prayers for the Elephants

April 29th, 2012

Please step up your prayers for the elephants in light of the ongoing elephant holocaust in central Africa and especially the recent atrocities in the Cameroons. Please read the details in the article Sickening Elephants’ Graveyard Caused by Hatred and Greed or watch the BBC1 video.

Please also watch this poignant, heart-wrenching, new video by Elephant Advocacy. YouTube Preview Image

For thousands of years the people of Africa have lived sustainably with their wildlife, including elephants. It is only since colonialism began in the 1800s that people from other parts of the world, particularly Europe, the US and China, have raped the resources of Africa. Now that there is not much left, the wildlife is being decimated, especially the slaughter of elephants for their ivory tusks and the rhinos for their horns, which are used by the Chinese as an aphrodisiac. At the current rate of destruction, some predict that in another 20 years or so there may be no elephants or rhinos left.

Please hold the elephants and the rhinos and all of Africa in your prayers. If you have not already signed CoreLight’s prayer circle for the elephants, we invite you to do so now (no email address required). And we invite you to please share the prayer circle and all of this news with your friends via email, Facebook and Twitter.

Thank you!

The Message of Love

April 19th, 2012

The sacred texts of all the religions and ancient traditions are a legacy about the message of love. Love is the force with the power to dissolve our erroneous sense of separation. And it is love that heals the aberrant and discordant behaviors arising from our mistaken identity with the separate self. Taking up the exploration of consciousness with the intention to create integrative transformation is, more than anything, a return to love. Love is an important component of awakening and of the unified state; it becomes one of our teachers as we seek union with the Divine. We must learn the lessons love teaches us; otherwise we will never find the unified state. love never fails

Love is the glue that binds the fragmented and unbalanced parts of us back together. It is a force with the power to dissolve all resistances and withholds. It joins all the seams, knits all the displaced faults, smooths all the joints, and spackles over all the cracks. When it is present in its pure form, it is the melding, melting force that fuses awareness with the Divine. Love is, in the end, the force that draws us onto the path and keeps us going forward, by calling us back to its most pristine state, unity—over and over again.
