If our planet, with its interdependent ecological systems, is to survive, we have to learn to live in harmony with all creation. If we are polluting our world it means that we do not care about anyone else. If we cared about our family, if we cared about our neighbor, we would not do anything to pollute the environment and make life difficult for other human beings.
September 20 is celebrated as the International Day of Meditation all over the world. It is a great step forward toward a world of peace when there is a day set aside globally for meditation.
While there are outer parades on Labor Day, meditation provides us some time to enjoy the inner parades of Lights and Music within. These are not just visual and auditory experiences, but this contact with the inner Light and Sound brings peace, happiness, and bliss.
