One Voice experiences from the United States during

A Moment

of Peace

Our first effort to engage minds and hearts worldwide in a single thought was awesome. For years we asked people to celebrate a Universal Hour of Peace. On October 11, 2003, we asked people around the world to join us in reading the Universal Peace Covenant at lpm CDT to create One Voice for peace. Here are first person accounts of this historical moment from each continent.

Dear Shawn Campbell,

Greetings from the South Pole! We received your email yesterday, regarding the Universal Peace Covenant and your Peace Dome. As Antarctica is the world's example of international cooperation, with the entire continent set aside for peaceful scientific research and collaboration, we felt it necessary to be represented for such a cause.

Today, a couple of us got up early and read your note at the designated time. The temperature was -74F (with windchill, it was -132F) and it was very windy. So we opted to read the covenant in the warmth of the new station's galley, where we have a lovely view of the geographic South Pole, (and little fear of the covenant blowing away!) Then we went out to the Geographic South Pole for a photo (see attached).

Good luck with the Peace Dome!

Cheers from the bottom of the world!

Dear Lynn,

We were thrilled when we received your email and so grateful that everyone
there responded in the ways that you did. The picture was delightfull, and
I have to tell you that I was so excited when I opened it that I kissed the
computer screen! You have aided us in fulfilling a vision that means a lot
to us here and to many people all over the world.

I've learned a lot about Antarctica in doing research and trying to make
contact with people there, and I have been amazed and gratefull that there
is a place on this planet like it. In many ways, it exemplifies the
cooperation, community and united consciousness that the School of
Metaphysics is here to bring to all of the world. So in that also, I am
gratefull that you all participated.

I saw some pictures of your new station online-it looks beautiful! Kind of
like a space station. And I was happy too in reading how you all have new
people coming about every 6 months to live in your community. We too are
building a community of every changing people here at our College of
Metaphysics and in that also I saw more connections.

Again, thank you for responding to our request and I wish all of you there
at the South Pole much peace and success in your endeavors. Is there anyway to send mail to you? I would love to send you some mementoes of the Peace Dome Dedication. Please let me know. I have also attached a few photos of the day.

Peace be with you!

I send you my Circle of Love,

Shawn




Dear Shawn,
Thanks for your email! We were very happy to help. The two of us in the photo have been in every peace demonstration that we have had down here at the South Pole this winter season. (This makes our third one...we had one in February and then took part in a peace vigil in March) I was also part of a peace demonstration last summer season at McMurdo station (where I worked October to February), when we made a human peace sign on the sea ice...

Unlike other parts of Antarctica, the South Pole is very isolated for a longer period of time, due to the extreme weather found here. (Our low this season was -102F, and that is NOT including windchill!!) The first flight is set to arrive on October 24....(our last flight of the season was Feb 15.) Our international station has 57 people representing the USA, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, and Australia. Very cool. (no pun intended!!:)

We have 20 knot winds today, and OUR dome has been socked in with drifting snow....had to climb up a hill of snow to get to the new station this afternoon!! What a SURPRISE!! Glad the weather was better yesterday for our photo.

Aloha for now,

Lynn

Will you join us?

Dear Laurel Clark and all peace makers – God bless your heart!

Let me tell you about my humble share in the One Voice global endeavor. As I mentioned in my earlier message we had 3 days event titled ”Hugging the Kinneret – Loving the Sea of Galilee”. During this time Muslims, Christians, Druz and Jews came together to share visions and hopes. It was great opportunity to know more about each other culture, faith, songs, dancing and more.

We actually started on Sunday night (October 11) with some music bands, sitting on the grass facing the beautiful Sea of Galilee and the mountains on its other side immersing in the clear night as it was only 1 night after the full moon, the light was bright shining. Same moon that shine that night all over our sacred planet. Almost before midnight I invited few friends to come together under one of the huge eucalyptuses on the lakeshore, 2 of us manifested the Divine IN and than I read the One Voice manifestation. I wish to thank you once again for this global endeavor and for allowing me and my friends to be part of it. We are always ready to be part of the world, becoming the united ONE that we all are.

Unfortunately I don’t have any photo of the time we shared reading the testimony but I’m glad to send you a picture of the Peace Pole we planted on the following day. The Pole was decorated by Arabs and Jewish young girl, working harmoniously together for one goal – peace on earth!

and I sent it on 11 october 2003 to about 20 people to read and I offered 2 exemplares to friends to read and my grandmother read it to in hungarian since I read it too,I guess I wasn t lonely in reading it :). Thank you very much for offering me a special opportunity to contribute to the worldpeace!Blessed be!

Yes, I ll join the Reading of the covenant for 31 december, and I think this event is even better placed in time than the first reading;more people will have time to join the reading of the Universal Peace Covenant.


Impressions on the Universal

Covenant of Peace

What meant to me the reading of the Universal Covenant of Peace on 11 October 2003? What meant to read loudly ,with soul and voice, such great truths on Peace?

It meant all.

It was an unic feeling to read the same lines of the Universal Covenant,in the same time with many other people from the world around.

It was an huge step,which bringt the closest ever possibile,the counsciousness to the recognizing of the Oneness,of the universal interconnection of things and events,in this world and in all the worlds...

It was the settlement of the foundation-stone of a new era,a time of blessings and Peace,at global proportions;the positive vibrations and thoughts of Peace will not be lost,but these are the seeds of Peace,and soon we ll see beautiful results and fruits of this initiative we choosed.

By choosing the reading of the Covenant,

we made an historical choose:the decision to reject violence and agressivity from the middle of our society,the decision to stop and end wars,which will be concretised in reality,following the guidelines reflected by the Universal Covenant of Peace.

I m saying you,don t doubt,because yet there are visible effects of this marvelous reading worldwide,organized by the School of Metaphysics.

Strangers from around the globe,got closer,in a brotherly unity,by redaing the words of the Covenant;the frontiers falled-there didn t existed;soul was close to soul,man was close to man,mind was close to mind-

from different countries,we stayed reading the Covenant,many as One,we formed a world empire,

the empire of Peace!

(how many powerful leaders tryed unsuccessfully during the centuries,to acquire an world empire using force and violence?...in few minutes we have build an world empire,that of Peace,by reading the Covenant...)

I m deeply honored that I had the chance to participate to such an important historical moment of the world.I m happy that I was for some wonderful instants,a little part from the immense crowd,which had read the Covenant of Peace,and impaciently waiting the next time,to experience again that infinite joy!

Thank you School of Metaphysics,for the bridge of Peace and Light you created for peoples,nations,mankind;

thank you for the Universal Covenant of Peace!

May Peace Prevail on Earth!

May Peace Prevail On Earth!

It was really a very interesting and appreciable occasion here in the Gambia. I was particularly enthusiastic to be part of the reading of the Universal Peace Convenant. I thank the school of Metaphysics in making us be one of the countries to take part in this Synchronised reading of the Universal Peace Convenant.

I wish to inform you that my reports are ready but the pictures are too many to be scanned and also the audio tape of the reading which i have to enclose made me to decide sending it through post office as registered mail. DHL is too expensive here and we can't afford to foot the bill. But if it will be too late, you can advise on how you want me to do it. I wanted to post it tomorrow but I will wait until I hear from you.

In fact, I will not stop thanking you for making us be a part of this programme. The people of the Gambia were very glad to hear this. I am making effort to see if it can be published in the local newspapers here so that people who were not opportuned to be part of us on that day can also share the good message of the convenant.

I wish to stop here until I hear from you.

May Peace Prevail On Earth!

Dear Laurel,

I salute your Light orientated efforts towards the promotion of a Universal Peace Consciousness.

I met with six other light minded people in Johannesburg, South Africa on October 11th to participate in a ceremony whereby we focused on working with and sending out highly charged radiant energies resonant with the Spirit of Peace to the world.
There was a committed sense of unity amongst ourselves and we all experienced a sense of profound peace at this sacred time. We then went out side to the garden and linked with the energies of the Peace Pole planted there and the many thousands of other peace poles planted around the world.

I do feel that there is a movement of goodwill stirring in the hearts of humanity and the shift from the outmoded culture of a War mentality to a Culture of Peace is slowing taking hold as humanity learns to respect, co operate and communicate with one another.
It is through movements such as yours which promote this global co operation that the seeds of Peace and Goodwill will take root and grow.

Thank you for inviting me to take part.

With infinite love and light and peace,

Susan Kaschula
South African Representative World Peace Prayer Society.

Dear Dr. Laurel Clark

I am very happy that you are summoning me for this important world encounter. I thank you and Deborah Moldow to consider me in this work to be carried out.

It is a beautiful work!! Infinite Light!!

With a lot of happiness we will be participating with our group of people of the ASOCIACION SHINTO KAI ARGENTINA, of the CENTRO DE REIKI LUZ RADIANTE, of the GOI PEACE FOUNDATION and of the WORLD PEACE PRAYER SOCIETY.

People that are usually summoned for the tasks by the Peace will be working that day and reading the Agreement of Universal Peace.

I&Mac226;m preparing the organization of an encounter to be able to carry out it, and once defined I will communicate you the place and the quantity of people that will be that day.

We will film the event, and then we will send to you, a document of the carried out work. It will be a honor for us to participate.

Please, if there is some organization detail to keep in mind for the reading of the agreement I request you that makes it to me to know, so that we prepare it in advance enough.

I am at your disposal and I hope we can communicate soon with you to organize the details of the encounter that I think, it will be carried out in Buenos Aires.

I wait your answer and I send to you from here a hug of Peace and Infinite Light.


MAY PEACE PREVAIL ON EARTH
