Medicine Cabinet

10/24/2008

I am very very fortunate to have made the acquaintance of one the greatest spiritual teachers and visionaries of our day, Marianne Williamson. Aside from being a prolific writer with over eight spiritual classics under her belt  (including five New York Times #1 Bestsellers: A Return to Love, Healing the Soul of America, A Woman’s Worth, Illuminata, and The Gift of Change) she is a brilliant speaker, and a vigorous activist for peace and the spiritual evolution of our planet.  

In 2004 She founded The Peace Alliance, a grass roots campaign supporting legislation currently before Congress to establish a cabinet-level United States Department of Peace.  Can you imagine? A Secretary of Peace?  Needless to say, Marianne is not only a genius, she will make history. Here is an excerpt from the Peace Alliance Site:

Peace is not a utopian ideal; it is an issue critical to our national and human security. Either we continue reactively addressing ever-increasing levels of violence and the consequent human and economic costs, or we take a fresh approach. This isn’t about the politics of left or right; it is about what is practical and effective. We must create the possibility for applied peacebuilding to identify and resolve conflict before it erupts into violence. The science of peacebuilding has significantly expanded over the past 30 years, creating previously unavailable tools for dismantling violence. Yet nowhere in the highest echelons of our government is there a platform from which to launch a focused, strategic approach to reducing and preventing violence.
