Recently, I’ve been practicing a form of the Buddhist Metta Bhavana, or Loving Kindness Meditation. In it, I concentrate on projecting unconditional love and good wishes to all life forms. It feels so powerful that I was thinking it may have a beneficial effect if many people were to synchronize the practice and send powerful thoughts and feelings of love and compassion to specific groups of people.
That’s the idea behind the August 15 Peace Projection. On August 15, 2014 at exactly 12:00 midnight GMT, participants will simultaneously project thoughts, prayers and feelings of love and healing to the peoples of Syria, Palestine and Israel.
If you are interested, please visit the Facebook page: This Link, and “Like” to pledge to participate.
Most importantly, I really need your help to promote the August 15 Peace Projection. Please consider posting to social media forums and spreading the word in any way you know how.
About the time:
Your time to participate may be on the 14th or later on the 15th – For example, August 15 at 12:00 midnight GMT is 8:00 pm on the 14th on the East Coast of the United States. To find out what your local time is relative to GMT, click here.

Feel free to use one of these, or your own practice, and add the people of the Middle East (specifically Syria, Israel and Palestine for this event) to your thoughts.
