Protests around the world
Occupy the Dream; Not the Streets
In response to Governor Nixon's Curfew, Marc Daniels, Campaign Chairman of the Weed Out Hate Initiative issued the following civic prayer for Peace:
After ten years of research and analysis of the deepest Judaic "kabbalah" roots of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s "Mountain Top" and "Promised Land" rhetoric, I had distilled the spiritual gardening wisdom of the torah into just a few words: Weed Out Hate; Sow the Seeds of Peace.
The physical and symbolic act of extracting just one weed out hatred, coupled with a spiritual "eye for an eye" tear, can unleash of ocean of God's tears back upon us, if multiplied by a few billion willing souls or more.
As events in Ferguson had shown, the slightest bit of impurity in this collective intention within a group or rally, can make the dreams and aspirations fall back like a Jerusalem snow. It is simply not enough to be given the trust and the freedom to exercise our freedom of speech. We must be vigilant in our heavenly desire and intention. If there is any bloodletting to be had, it should be the letting of our inner egoistical blood, that which can no longer be corrected, in exchange for suckling on the heart and wisdom from above: to weed out hate and sow the seeds of peace. This is inner justice. The more we as a people learn to channel our inner rage into spirituality, the less the police will need no keep us in the dark with their tightly woven social fabric". If we do our own inner policing beforehand, our spirits are free to rise and fill pockets of a vivified fabric of spiritual reality--peace. Let us strive to attain the highest standards, dreams and vision of Martin Luther King, Jr to occupy his dream,
