What's Your Vision?

(These are the responses written on the flipcharts by participants before going into, or after coming out of the meditation room at the March 2002 24-Hour World Healing Peace Circle in Ann Arbor)

When each of our hearts are filled
with the knowing we are one," and love
pours out without effort for each other,
then there will e peace. 

A world where the rights of all are protected.

Of smiles on every face & joy in every heart,
of children of every color playing hand in hand, 
of women & men sharing & learning & laughing together, 
of every one taking the Bodhisattva Vow -- 
"Though suffering is limitless, I will work to end it."

Soldiers returning home 
with nothing but love in their hearts,
untainted by crimes against fellow humans. 

[drawing of a heart crying]

May everyone feel truly loved.

The mind, the heart, and the hand rarely agree,
and they often create hate, crime, war, murder and 
needless bloodshed that can be painful and confusing, 
but with love, hope, and perseverance we can better 
comprehend the reasons behind their puzzling nature 
and our understanding can lead to their end. 
We will feel the greater meaning and view a larger picture, for
with the solution of the puzzle, we will share one peace!!

The U.S. government learns to live 
in peace & love and appreciate differences. 

Community -- where we can trust our neighbors --
where/when take care of our neighbors (far & near)

Like drops of water affect the ocean
so thoughts and prayers affect peace.

A world that works for everyone!
[with a drawing of a heart & arrow]

May the children know peace & love
& carry it always with them through
their smile, laughter & play.
[signed with a heart]

Healing of all hearts 
even those that seem most hard 
may they & we all know love & joy!
[yet another heart drawing]

The answer to hatred is Love!

War is an addiction
addiction is sickness
Let's heal our selves & our leaders
and journey in peace. 

Resources made available 
to train people in mediation, 
equip people with the skill & comfort to hug 
instead of where our $ go now!
