People are energetic beings and when like energies gather they are exponentially more powerful in their focus. If we hunt for something holy or peaceful or beautiful and abundant that will feed everyone, we are more likely to create it in collaboration than approaching it alone. The warrior within us can give us passion and drive if we raise its vibration from an aggressive manner of self aggrandizement and turn it into vibrant doses of inspiration and belief to be shared.
Thank you for listening.
Music: Few do collaboration with more enthusiasm, passion and action the the folks at Playing for Change who have carried the musical message, Peace through Music all across the globe in education and performance and love through encouraging participation of all people. Have they changed the world? I think so. The deepest change is the change that involves everyone in an enhanced level of enjoyment. PFC has been igniting change through inspiration in the hearts of all ages all over the world for 20 years now. They share what they love and they have grown strong in numbers inviting and delivering much more beauty into the world and a greater sense of it than any one person could ever do alone. They have introduced many an idle and frustrated young person prompted to pick up arms to, instead, pick up a musical instrument and that is no small gift to us all.
