Drawing from my Vedic chant studies for the first flag, I have written "may we be protected and nourished, so that the work we do may flourish with energy, clarity and friendship". This short translation comes from the peace chant traditionally done between teacher and student to begin studies. It seemed an appropriate way to start, as the theme is Reflections on Peace. Peace seems to be an element that is most needed in many lives right now. The flags are now winging their way to Maui for Lahar to add her creative touch.
Let's launch Bhavana Project 3 with these lines from the late John O'Donohue's beautiful book "To Bless the Space Between Us" -
Though your destination is not yet clear
You can trust the promise of this opening;
Unfurl yourself into the grace of beginning
That is at one with your life's desire.
