What Is Global Awakening Day? The world we are living in is facing grave challenges. Crises of all sorts are threatening the survival of many species, including our own. Problems are rampant, causing pain, suffering and chaos to individuals and society as a whole. Humanity is at a crossroads and the direction we take determines the future for all. This is the choice between continuing down the same direction and opening to a way out. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if every human being lives their full potential, manifesting the true qualities of a human life! Wouldn’t it be wonderful if all species can live together in the way that is all-enhancing! All of this is possible but will require every one of us to make a genuine effort to learn and do the real work. Let’s start with ourselves and use this opportunity to build the Qifield for everyone to do so.
What Is Awakening? Awakening has two meanings. One is awakening to the reality that life is run by all kinds of unhealthy patterns (thoughts, behaviours, emotions) and is lost in the confusion and problems caused by them. When these unhealthy patterns are transformed, and the problems are cleared, one will gain clarity. This experience can feel like waking up from a long sleep. The other layer of meaning refers to the state after the True Self manifests. Being in a state of pure awareness is awakening in a true sense.
How You Can Participate Join us for a special celebration on the summit of Mt Vernon - a short 5 minute walk from the Summit Rd at 10 am on Sunday 2 October. This is at the same time as Yuan Tze and Melissa will be holding their ceremony at the top of Mt Victoria in Wellington. We'll connect in and build the Qifield together for a better world, and then listen to the Global Awakening Day heart meditation...and then enjoy shared morning tea (of course :-) ).
So, weather permitting we'll be on the summit of Mt Vernon for a 10am start. See here for a map of the area.For those who would like to join us in walking up the hill (& back down again!), meet us at the end of Albert Terrace (St Martins) at 8.30am sharp.
