Deja Vu

The 1960's in the United States were like a preview of what the world is now experiencing. Consciousness was growing by leaps and bounds. What had been collectively unconscious became subject to the light of conscious examination.

These moments of Self respect brought civil rights to those who had been excluded.

They challenged the heart to stop an unjust and unnecessary war.

They opened the mind to altered states of consciousness beyond the boundaries of the physical body, and questioned undisciplined consumption for material gain.

The events of the 60's from university protests to the birth control pill to the assassinations of leaders, shaped the consciousness of a nation which influences the world today. At its best, the '60's were a glimpse of – in the words of a popular Broadway show of the time, Hair – the age of Aquarius where "harmony and understanding, sympathy and trust" abound.

In 1961, U.S. President John F. Kennedy united a nation when he articulated a common goal for this melting pot nation to "set a man on the moon by the end of this decade..."

This decade was a time of establishing high ideals and meeting big goals.

When the Apollo 11 crew returned back home, they left a plaque on the Moon. Its sentiment is as compelling today as it was then. The plaque says,

"Here men from the planet Earth first set foot upon the Moon

July 1969, A.D.

We came in
peace for all mankind."

Since October 11, 2003, a place exists on planet Earth where all can come in peace.

This sacred space we call the Peace Dome
