Earth Dance was on Saturday Sept 18th and it was expected that more than a million people from 120 different cities, in 30 countries would simultaneosly join together in a spiral dance to pray for peace and unite the whole world through the universal platform of music and dance. Sounded like a good idea.
Here in Vancouver it rained hard the night before, and when I woke up it was overcast and the radio was saying that we could expect rain all day long. This made me think it would be a good day to hunker down inside with a good book and take a rest from the run around week I had just been through. But then when I went to the bookcase to get a book, I discovered the Sept edition of Shared Vision magazine which was a bit of a surprise since I had been looking for it the night before. I opened it up and there was a big advertisement for the Earth Dance and I changed my mind once again, got the rain gear on and walked down to Stanley Park.
It was a nice walk, and the rain wasn't that hard, and I held a positive attitude and kept thinking of the concept of composure. I had just finished reading how there was an experiment, world wide once again, to measure the universal energy and see if it was possible for collective intention to affect matter. This was organized by the Light Workers. So this was foremost on my mind as I walked down there along with good intent, and making my choice and visualizing the type of world that I wanted and the changes that I would have to make within myself to realize this. It brought back memories of the Equinox drumming event that was here in 2001 when there were 1500 drummers using conscious intention to create a second singularity, to counter the singularity of the 9/11, and to turn it from a black hole that sucked us all in, to a pair of chaotic attractors that would enable the change into the future. On that day we laid down a spiritual grid, opened the Mayan gate of the North, and had an incredibly great day in the process. So now it was the fourth equinox coming up and although it occurs at 9:30 AM on Sept 22nd the events here in Vancouver seem to be stretched over a week long period that straddle that date. As I walked down to the Earth Dance I thought this was the start of the equinox week.
Stanley Park is a very pretty place and the rain was making everything nice shades of green, and the air smelled fresh. I was getting close to the event location around about 3:00 and the closer I got the better I was feeling. Then there was a bit of break in the clouds and I was in sunshine even though it was still raining, it was a very nice effect. Joy is taking over now and I'm slipping into that goofy smile, tears running down my cheeks state. The hole in the clouds continued to grow and soon it was blue sky overhead so now it was sunny and without rain. There were clouds on the horizon for 360 degrees but the sun shone on us. The hip hop DJs were riffing off on how we had pushed back the clouds and stopped the rain and brought out the sun, and we all could see that it was indeed the case. I was so glad that I had come down afterall.
More people started to come down. Perhaps they planned to be there for the 4:00 start and not the earlier start, but there were more coming. I think that many changed their mind when they saw that there was blue sky over Stanely Park. Just before the 4:00 start we gathered in an open field just off to the side of where we were all dancing. I don't know how many people were there but we formed a circle about 80 metres in diameter and standing fairly close together so that we could hold hands and still have them raised high in the air, that would have been a few hundred. Plus there were a couple dozen drummers that weren't in the spiral dance circle. We all heard the connect signal on the PA and the peace prayer and it was good, there were smiles everywhere and we felt like we had made a connection to a greater good.
It was a good day. On the walk home I had renewed hope and knew that we were going to make it through this and the story of what we did here on Earth would be a best seller on planets throughout the universe. Publishing house Earth had a best seller on their hands. Hang on tight, it's gonna be a wild ride and we ain't seen nothing yet, but you know it will be the greatest story ever told.
Yup, I feel like Vancouver is where I am supposed to be and the grand plan is unfolding all according to plan. Love and joy to you all.

no greater feeling a large group of people gathered together to help each other and the earth.
when did your feet touch the ground again?

I'm not sure if the feet have touched the ground. Going through new levels of insanity lately, deja vu of the black and white angels and mystics and explorers if you know what I mean. My solipstic universe is looking very bright but also there is a lot of tension bubbling just under the surface. One of the most toxic algae blooms on record is 25 kilometers off the coast and threatening my shell fish beds, it will be okay they say as long as indian summer remains sunny but stormy weather will make it worse and drive it onto the coast. And Mt. St. Helens is getting ready to erupt and if it is violent enough it could pop the yosemite cauldron as well and that would unleash hell and a lifetime of rage upon the earth. Don't push me, but I'm not sure if the world is getting the message. And Nelson BC is getting lots of flak from the US war mongers because a group wants to erect a memorial to the US draft dodgers, but it is focusing a public debate and Canadians are responding positively with how it takes courage to stand up to a bully and the whole thing just might backfire on them.
This weekend I'm attending a peace forum that I found out about at the Earth Dance. We will also be celebrating Ghandi's birthday which is on Oct 2nd. He was an obstinate little passive aggresive that took a stand, and a water snake to boot, and I like both of those qualities. heheheh
Bright days ahead, and if not then watch out if I explode. Ground, what ground, like I said, new levels of insanity.
