Three Days of Love Pledge – December 20-22, 2012

Tuesday, December 11th, 2012

We have signed the THREE DAYS OF LOVE Pledge created by the Shift Network and Birth2012.com.

The Pledge says “I commit to share words and actions of love on December 20, 21, and 22, 2012.”

Will you join us and please share with others?

>>Update June 2013 – I plan to suggest to Birth2012 folks that they change the wording and continue on with the Love Pledge. “We/I commit to share words and action of love everyday.”, perhaps? Their page is still up and the link below works.  ~ Lisa

From Birth2012.com – Hearts - original painting by Jim Papp

“We are delighted to be launching an exciting global initiative with Deepak Chopra, Marianne Williamson, Barbara Marx Hubbard, don Miguel Ruiz, Michael Beckwith, Shiva Rea, and many other luminaries today.

It’s an experiment in creating a global movement of the heart to begin a new era with love, generosity, and kindness.

We invite you to join this “love movement” by personally committing to sharing words and actions of love for three days, from December 20 – 22. 

Imagine what will happen if people around the world commit to this: amazing acts of friendship, random gifts, hugs from strangers – we can remember ourselves as one human family!

So if you’ve been wondering what one thing you can do to make a difference, this is a potent and fun one.

Get details and sign your name to the pledge here: Three Days of Love”

Thanks for signing and sharing!

~ Love, Jim and Lisa

The Trees Who Talked – poem by Jim Papp

Wednesday, February 1st, 2012

The Healing Tree (El Lechero) - Otavalo, Ecuador

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We speak to you now
As ones, who like you,
Are much younger than
The Mountains

Sustained by the same Water
And the same Sun
And both blessed to be
In this place of wonder,
We have been asked to tell you
To share and celebrate
This Garden with your kind

The Bear brings you power,
The Deer, protection
We, the Trees, standing silently
In witness, give you trust

The Water comes and goes
The Animals are busy
On their own paths
The Mountains, well,
They have other things to do,
Communing with the very forces
That created the face
Of this Earth

We speak to you now as ones
Whose lives come and go,
Much like yours.
You, however, are affecting
How this Garden grows
And that is why we seek
Your attention
