Wishcasting Wednesday





Today Jamie Ridler asks us another of her penetrating questions:





What do you wish for the world?




There is so much strife, killing, inequality, fear and unhappiness. Every day there is news of war and riots and killing. I am always struck by the lack of respect, equality and peace around the world. Two few have too much and flaunt it. Too many have too little and suffer for it.



I would wish that those few with so much would share their millions with the poor and displaced of the world. I would wish that all people would co-exist with respect and sharing.



I would wish that there could be a transformation in how we live.



All religions have a form of the Golden Rule - do unto others as you would have them do unto you. It is time we all follow that rule!




As Jamie says:
"You can be a maker of magic and a tender of wishes. It’s easy. Answer the wish prompt above on your blog. Support wishes by visiting other participants. It’s that simple. There is great power in wishing together."

I love that we are all wishing for the same things. Peace. Togetherness. Harmony. Communication. As you wish for the world, so I also wish for it.

Following the Golden Rule would bring so much peace and understanding to the world. As you wish for yourself (the world) so I wish for you also.

Ah yes, the Golden Rule! Have you seen the work of Karen Armstrong? Her "Charter for Compassion"? She did a TED talk about reviving the Golden Rule and that got the Charter started. I think you'd like it.

As you wish for yourself (the world) so I wish for you (the world) also.

Hi Bev,
Well said! We definitely don't live up to our standards. As you wish for yourself, I wish for you too.
