Wave1: A wave of peace
Wave1 is a unique event which is inspired by those who meditate upon the qualities of love, joy, and/or peace. Many of us have participated in “World Peace Meditation Days” where we all meditate at the same exact time, no matter where we are in the world. These are usually at 4am or so in my time zone, which is a time of day I’m not usually very aware!
This new event takes place between 7 and 8 pm in YOUR timezone. The thought is that a wave of peaceful thoughts will flow around the world. There are many live local events scheduled in various cities all over the planet. I will attend the nearest one to me, in Tucson, Arizona, USA, and you can check the map on Wave1’s website to see if there is one scheduled near you. But you needn’t attend an event or be with a group to participate, if you feel at all drawn to this. Just sit quietly for anywhere from 10 minutes to one hour, starting at 7:00 pm, YOUR time, on Wed. June 18. Focus on qualities, people, or places that feel peaceful to you. Invite your thoughts to join with others in circling the globe on this auspicious day. If you have a chant, meditation or prayer practice, this will be a good time for that, too.
The local gathering I’ll attend is: “A multicultural celebration that will feature sacred music and prayer from all over the planet.” Theoretical physicists are finding more and more evidence to support the notion that thought can affect matter. At the very least, I expect many participants (including myself) to find a few moments of joy and peace within themselves. And that can only help us all. Peace, Salaam, Shalom.
