My birthday wish

http://www.thegodarticle.com/7/category/birthday/1.html:

I wish...

I wish for peace. Real peace. If only for a moment.
I wish for that space
to open up
here on Earth,
so that the fullness of that moment may be known -
so that humanity may experience, if only for a moment,
what it means to love –
all.

I wish for us to drop our pretenses
and our need to manipulate others.
I wish for us to find our way past
our games of one upmanship
and to a place where equality reigns-
not because we are
equal in all things,
but because we are
equally loved in all things.

I wish...

I wish for that moment of peace,
experienced around the world,
that in that moment,
in that gifted space,
humanity might see the value
of all life -
that we might see past
race,
gender,
disability,
age,
wealth -
that all our false measurements of value
might,
if only for a moment,
be wiped away
and, in that moment,
we each see clear to the heart
of each other.

I wish...

I wish for a moment of peace
to break out upon the world,
if only for a few breaths,
to strip away our false gods of power
to pull back the curtain
on the falsehoods that divide us
and pits us against each other -
that the judgments and convictions
that trap our souls
would be released
as we exhale in those moments of peace
and be replaced with the makings of peace...
love,
grace,
forgiveness,
compassion.

I wish...

I wish that we would carry that moment
with us -
that we might
lavish in its comfort,
grow in its freedom,
be enriched in its wisdom,
be joyful in its protection
and be at peace.

I wish...
that we might extend that moment
into each of our relationships -
that we might trust each other more,
hurt each other less,
accept each other for who we are
and not what we wish each other to be.

I wish for you.
I wish for me.
peace.

That is my birthday wish.

Dear Judith,

that is a very beautiful wish. And it's so much more wonderful than a new gadget, toy or other gift. I wish that some of it comes true for you (all of it may be a bit much to expect ;) ).

Thank you for sharing that with us!

How are you?

Hugs, ngu xxx
