How can a family create a daily ritual that passes on high ideals, celebrates the spiritual significance of holidays, and focuses attention on easing the suffering of all beings? Keren Clark Posey has created just such a ritual to share with her children. Each night they gather and take turns choosing a "Wish for the World." The wishes are simple and direct. They cover such areas of concern as the environment, the earth's creatures, war, disease, famines, and genocide:
Imagining the power these wishes could generate if her small circle could be united with others, she has created a book of daily "wishes," three hundred and sixty-five wishes for the world, with the help of her twin sons. Each wish is accompanied by an inspirational quotation. It is her hope that you will join her each day in Wishing for the World.
"Through this heartfelt collection of wishes we awaken to the power of our collective energy and to the importance of unity and peace over divisiveness and struggle" Louis C. Martin, MD, author of God and Atom
"There is universality in this small tome which is neither masculine or feminine, black or white, one religion or another. A wise and beautiful book." Monique Houde, author of Blinded by Love
Tonight, as we begin the new year,
our wish is for all people
to have compassion for the suffering
of all beings.
"Every morning, when we wake up, we have
twenty-four brand new hours to live.
What a precious gift! We have the capacity
to live in a way that these twenty-four hours
will bring peace, joy and happiness to ourselves
-Thich Nhat Hanh, Peace Is Every Step
