crestone vigil for world peace humanity s song-line for as long as we can remember diverse peoples have had their song-lines celebrating tribal cultural and religious experiences as well as honoring their connection to life and nature and all beings these songs-lines offer lineages of transmission for our values and beliefs they reflect our capacity to celebrate even in the heart of suffering we the peoples of earth are lifted up in the pulse of drums the breath of flutes in both solitary and choral human voice in strings in gamelan and a thousand other instruments encoding the deep story of human becoming we are also lifted up by the sound of ocean and stream the call of birds and every life form in nature yet who can deny that there is also a force of discord a cacophony of competing voices where every note is merely data for profit or loss where the engines of war screech across the skies showering death where babbling egos dominate the media where dictators still devour their own people where greed claws its way to every last drop of oil where earth herself and her symphony of life-truth is being silenced by the noise of so-called progress which is deaf to her call for balance for sustainability and collaboration but we are called to recover the song of earth and to learn from our aboriginal ancestors that the song of the human cannot be separated from the song of the land and its teeming life the song of rivers and roaring oceans the song of air and its flying songsters or the song-lines that come from distant stars if life on earth is to thrive in peace and harmony it is we who are called to bring healing and restore peace by sounding the notes of universal belonging by sounding the notes of spiritual unity by lifting and raising our voices to the highest frequencies of truth reconciliation forgiveness and deeply restorative justice and it is we who know that all harmony in creation is nourished by stillness that all movement must find its times of pause and that life offers healing when we work and play with its rhythms and it is we who are called to offer the new harmony of global peace by listening all the way to the depths of cosmos and bringing back the frequencies of its love to a world ready now to birth a new humanity and to give voice to the truth of who it is we really are james o dea
