If you’re relatively new to Centers for Spiritual Living and wonder what the impetus was for the World Healing Meditation held in Centers across the United States and the world on December 31 of each year, here it is:
(from the QUARTUS Foundation’s website)
“At noon Greenwich time, December 31, 1986, men, women, and children around the world gathered to participate in the most comprehensive prayer activity in the history– a planetary affirmation of peace, and love, forgiveness and understanding involving millions of people in a simultaneous global mind link. the purpose: to reverse the polarity of the negative force field in the race of mind, achieve a critical mass of spiritual consciousness, and usher in a new era of Peace on Earth.
The majority of individuals and organizations participating were operating under the umbrella of the Planetary Commission, a world wide non-denominational, non-political movement functioning as an extension of The Quartus Foundation. It was a grass roots cooperative effort to unite people in a common bond of love and bringing our planet back into balance.
The first formal announcement of the Commission was made on January 1, 1984, designating December 31, 1986 as World healing Day. Noon Greenwich time was selected as the time for the healing meditation as it would encompass all time zones during that 24-hour period.
Word quickly spread, and when that moment in time arrived on December 31, 1986, the mind-link totaled more than 500-million people representing all religious faiths on seven continents, in more than seventy countries, and in every state in the U.S. Over 500 spiritual and peace-related organizations around the world participated.
“remarkable progress toward a potentially more peaceful world… There was a clean break in the pattern of a constant increase in the number of major conflicts with which the world had grown accustomed.”– Walter Stuetzle
We saw the results in the years that followed. In a report from the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute, Walter Stuetzle, the Institute’s director and a former West German Undersecretary of Defense, said that there was “remarkable progress toward a potentially more peaceful world… There was a clean break in the pattern of a constant increase in the number of major conflicts with which the world had grown accustomed.” Now the Commission is expanding and gathering strength each year as greater awareness of the Event spreads around the world.
You are asked to participate, not only in Global Mind-Link each December 31st, but actively communicating the concept, date and hour at every opportunity. “
