a call to come together to heal our earth
عشق در عمل - گردهم آیی برای احیاء زمین
there is no road ahead
we make the road as we go
the clue of the beginning is more often
not discovered until near the end
maybe the journey is not so much
a journey ahead
but a journey into presence
the furthest place on earth is
the journey into the presence
of the person
nearest to you.

when we gather, a kind of magic happens
I've been feeling this calling for quite some time. What if we came together with one purpose : to heal our world. Whoever we are, artist, gardener, teacher, trader, tree planter, politician, doctor, un-employed musician, ecologist, philosopher or economist, it does not matter. What if we opened our hearts to a greater love that has sustained us all along, our love for this world, and each found our own unique way of expressing our love in action? What would happen then?
This is a calling and an invitation to the earth-healers, lovers of life, all who care for our world and know that by coming together we each become something larger and capable of making a difference to our lives and for the planet.
