I would like to bring you up to date on my peace mission to Iraq. First of all, I want to thank all of you for joining me. It felt as if millions of people were standing by my side, and in a way they were. Information about the vigil spread all over the world, and there is no way to know how many were holding the vibration. It felt like it was raining Grace in the desert, and I am humbled to have been present for this miracle. Peace has certainly prevailed, and we know that it is now being revealed perfectly. I was just inside the border of Iraq when the vigil began, while an hour before I was with about thirty Iraqi boys teaching them how to sing: “All we are saying, is give peace a chance.” It was a real gift, and you were all there with me.
I will save the other details of the journey for another e-mail. I would rather share something much more important. It is probably because so many thousands of people joined as One Mind and One Heart that I am so inspired right now. I have a vision I would like to share with you, and I pray that it will touch your heart as much as it is touching mine.
As I write this letter from Amman, Jordan, the television reports an endless stream of horrific news from around the world. The same day we gathered in prayer, a bomb set off in Bali killed nearly two hundred people. One word describes the overall feeling of so many—FEAR! Peace appears to be losing, and there doesn’t seem to be anything we can do about it.
We are and will continue to do something about it. My experiences with the Psychic Children, as well as the Emissaries of Light in Bosnia, tell me that this is when we must stand and be counted. This may be a dark hour, but it is when we are called to be "Instruments of Peace."
I have an idea that I want to share with you. We have nearly 50,000 people on our present e-mail list. I believe that if all of you would choose to dedicate yourself to creating peace in the world, then we could have a massive worldwide impact as "Spiritual Warriors." Scientists have already proven that small numbers of dedicated people are capable of shifting the planet in significant ways. I would like to see more than 50,000 people poised and ready to work together at a days notice. My goal is to have a contingency of over 100,000 people by the end of the year, and I believe we can make that happen.
I am not kidding about this. It is time for us to create a New World, and we must work together to do this. 100,000 Spiritual Warriors by the end of the year poised to Pray Peace at any given moment. This is how we can change the world, I believe, and I hope you do too. It would be like an army of inner peace soldiers, the strongest army in the world.
Here is the favor I ask, not for me but for the whole planet. Please commit yourself to inspiring two of your friends to join us by being part of this e-mail list. Imagine having the ability to contact over a hundred thousand people in a matter of hours and using the power of prayer to bring peace. If only half the people on this list inspired two more friends, then we would be there. Here’s what you can tell them:
"There is a network of people from nearly every country who believe that prayer is one of the most powerful forces on the planet, and they are working together to use this force to bring peace to the whole world. The group is called: 'The Spiritual Warriors,' and we would like you to join us."
All they have to do is send a blank e-mail to this address: email@example.com
Then they will be on the front line, just as you are, ready to create peace by Being Peace. We need your help to make this happen. I believe that we can have a powerful impact on the world, and I’m sure you agree. Just two friends apiece to be Instruments of Peace. I thank you in advance for playing your important role.
