Enough Is Enough! It's Time To Take Action!
I created this thread in an attempt to unite the consciousness of ATS. Unite it in a way which is powerful, far-reaching and genuine.
We see what is happening to our Planet, we see the cost our of collective lifestyles, we all feel genuinely distressed, upset and even guilty about
it. Our concerns are genuine and heartfelt. So we try to help. We become those important souls out there spreading the TRUTH to the masses about the
REAL Gulf oil spill situation. We give the real facts and the figures. We are the ones who open those closed eyes and minds as to what is really going
This is fantastic - but it is only one part of the solution. Sadly, we can only achieve so much from this approach.
The ATS Gulf Project
The time has come to make a difference and to at least try some kind of collective effort - ATS CAN BE A DIFFERENCE MAKER!!!
- I propose a regulated and coordinated attempt at healing.
- I propose an organised and structured systematic attempt at healing the Gulf region. There is no "one-off" here, this is something I propose we
commit to and make our own.
- I request a combined effort, with input from all of ATS.
- It's a stretch to even attempt this but I'm not going to sit by and just not try anymore.
"Do or do not, there is no try" - Yoda
So I will create a starting point to which we can all contribute. I will add any contributions to this OP as we go along.
I suggest some form of prayer/mantra/affirmation perhaps with guided imagery. Something which is simple yet powerful. Something which will send a
message of love and healing to the Gulf and Mother Earth. One possible option:
**** Calm, crystal-clear waters wash away suffering,
**** Life and beauty thrive as heart beats as one,
**** Balance returned - hope restored - purpose fulfilled,
**** Regret for what happened, forgiveness for what's done,
**** We send love to Mother Earth to restore her
**** We send to love to her children too
**** We come together to show our love,
**** We are the change, we act, we do.
EDITED TO ADD: After some of the early posts I should add that it goes without saying to also pray for those people being affected by this. We are all
connected and each is important as the other.
I encourage everyone to contribute to this. But here is the KEY.
Coordinated prayer/healing. And not for one day, but WHENEVER we can. There is power in numbers and this is no difference.
I suggest coordinated efforts 4 times a day. Four times a day where we can choose to send loving and healing energy to the Gulf and to Mother Earth.
Whoever can join in at that time will KNOW they are not alone in their healing, so accordingly will feel empowered to do so more regularly (i
I have looked at The World Clock
and have found some times in which everyone around the world will
be able to find at least one suitable time per day. The times correspond vertically to eachother, so 7am in Sydney is 2pm in New York, 10pm in London,
9am in Hong Kong and so on.
This is how we can unite our efforts.
GLOBAL HEALING TIMES
Sydney (Australia)....... 7am - 7pm - 1pm - 1am
Albuquerque (USA)...... 7pm - 7am - 1am - 1pm
London (UK)............... 10pm - 10am - 4am - 4pm
Brasilia (Brazil)........... 10pm - 10am - 4am - 4pm
Tokyo (Japan)............ 10am - 10pm - 4pm - 4am
Los Angeles (USA)...... 2pm - 2am - 8pm - 8am
Athens (Greece).......... 4am - 4pm - 10am - 10pm
Cairo (Egypt).............. 4am - 4pm - 10am - 10pm
New York (USA).......... 5pm - 5am - 11pm - 11am
Mexico City (Mexico)... 8pm - 8am - 2am - 2pm
Hong Kong (China)...... 9am - 9pm - 3pm - 3am
Mumbai (India)........... 6:30am - 6:30pm - 12:30pm - 12:30am
I have tried to provide the major cities, but if you're not there then just consult the World Clock link (above) to find your city's time slot.
All you have to do is pick one of the relevant times, whenever you can, and repeat the prayers/mantras/affirmations in this thread or just send
loving energy to the waters of the Gulf and its inhabitants (including the people living in the area!!!)
If, and that is a big IF, this thread actually works, we will be making a huge energetic difference to both the Gulf and Mother Earth in general. You
will be able to sleep well knowing you have done what you could to help. And when you see the horrible images coming from the Gulf coast you will know
you have done your bit to help that terrible situation.
This thread is (obviously) designed with nothing but a positive intent. Please try to limit the negativity in this thread. Let's at least try to make
it a positive place full of hope.
With much love and appreciation
We can do this!
