A Minute For Peace

Fear of a new world war


After listening with growing concern to news reports relating to the increasing tension between the United States and Iran regarding the latter's intent to develop nuclear capability, we decided to meditate and communicate with our Guides to ask if there is anything we can do to help facilitate a peaceful resolution to this matter.

Naturally, they care about peace on this planet as much as we do. We received the suggestion of a "minute for peace" whereby spiritual groups and individuals could sit and ask for guidance for all World Leaders to be helped to resolve contentious issues without the need to resort to force. This would not just apply to the immediate issue mentioned above but all over the world where there is unrest and conflict.

The suggestion is that, in a similar manner to the 'healing minute' already observed by many, a minute should be set aside once a week to focus our energies on this matter. It was suggested that 8pm on Sunday evenings would be a good time to do this. It is not necessary for people to come together as a group specifically to do this; it can be done just as well in our own homes. The important thing is that we do it.

We have already begun to do this and hope that as many of you as possible will join us.

Yours very sincerely,
