Joining in with Jamie Ridlers Wishcraft wednesday. Today's prompt.
What do you wish for the world?
Well, this is a huge one isn't it. Especially at the moment with seizmic activitiy on a geographical level in the Pacific, and politically in the North Africa & the middle East with big shifts going on in so many countries there. And the status quo holding on so, so very hard to power.
The news is so full of distressing images. Unbelievable images. CGI images for real. Its hard to hold onto what is true for me, right here, right now. I find myself curiously detatched, whilst watching in fascination. Not quite beliving or understanding what I see. And then a small detail. A human detail. And it hurts.
What I wish for the world I have to be myself. World change begins in the heart.
What I wish for the world is compassion for the other person. To see the humanity in anothers eyes.
I wish gentle transition to a free-er society for the countries fighting for it across the Middle East.
I wish healing for the people of Japan., and all those hurting.
And I wish that those in the position to do something about it, might question the wisdom of placing of nuclear power stations in an area known for earthquakes. Tsunami is a Japanese word for goodness sake.
