Wishes and Visions for Children and Youth in 2012
February 3, 2012
Corina Simon, Romania
I wish children and youth from the very first moments of 2012 to actively search and define their dreams for their personal growth, betterment of the local and global human community and in service to the Earth. All our wishes may come true if we work together and build bridges that re-connect us in Unity and Empowerment.
My vision for 2012 is a resurgence of good news all over the planet, joy and hope returning to the furthest corners of the world, young people taking their destiny into their hands, standing up to their rights with nonviolence, encouragement and support of all forms pouring in from all sides to enable dreams come true. Love in action across the board. In the spirit of Ubuntu!

The outcomes for 2011 has been very challenging as far as engaging young people in achieving Millenium Development Goals at global level but without withstanding during some of my participation in conferences such as the COP17, 2011 in Durban , the voices of youths were being heard though at limited extent.
That said and done , I have the following suggestions in terms of mission and vision :
- Engaging youth people in a campaign to which I am involve term Eradicating Ecocide which is a tool to protect the Mother Earth
- Calling on stakeholders to assist the children and adolescents attend minimum educational requirement or profile
- Involving them in the Rio+20 Processes and how this can final enhance the understanding of Sustainable Development as a whole and equally carry on a tree planting campaign
- Preparing for the Peace campaign for the year 2012 to see how unity and love can be emphasized in all youth projects globally, and
- Organizing as many workshops as possible to create awareness at national and international levels in order to meet up with COE plan of Action for subsequent years.

Dearest young People who carry the FUTURE,
I have been awaiting this 2012 marker for all of my life sensing the most unbelievable potential of building a new culture of Peace and Understanding as One Family of Humankind. I feel like this is a birth-day party potential. You are so fortunate to take this torch of tomorrow and have it passed to you as a symbol of the prophesies coming to life. Of course, this the planet of hardship for learning our lessons yet ,on the other hand, we are able to create this new destiny of love and compassion. Please do hold this in your minds and hearts to create a magnificence of your tomorrows for all of life.
I feel the tensions arising yet knowing it is YOU as YOUTH and CHILDREN of the generations to come who will be able to go beyond all physical borders as the "borderless generations" and become aware of your true inner self''s calling. Naturally this is up to each one of you. Truth is what you hold and what you create. Then why not create the dream of a beautiful reality and release all karma from your Being. There is no need to repeat the tremendous cycles of pain .
You are the first generation that is free to create collectively that which you hold with awareness . No more living in caves in meditation, now is the time to be who you are as an authentic soul self without an allegiance to your cultural demands. The world is yours and awaits your dreams into actions.It is then peace abides here and now and forever! Mama Nina

Vision: My generation experienced humanity's shift into an era of planetization. Events throughout the 20th century —global wars, human atrocities and unforeseen threats of ecological catastrophe—
stimulated expansion of the collective human consciousness which gave rise to the founding of the United Nations and thousands of peace organizations, one of which is Children of the Earth. This moment, the 2012 shift, coincides with a crucial period of life-passage for Children of the Earth.
Wishes: May the immanent re-shaping of Children of the Earth bring strength and longevity, transcending the life-times of its founders. May this organization, along with all its individual participants, associates and allies, be blessed with the grace, wisdom and creativity to continue to further universal love. May it be truly said, "We Are One" effectively building World Peace throughout the 21st Century.

Dear children of Eternity,
The world is celebrating Christmas on 25th of December, the birth of Jesus Christ. January 1st is the New Year. Let us celebrate them with new spirit and consciousness.
By 2012 the Time is entering into a new phase of evolution. We have to shape our lives according to the changes in Nature. Otherwise we may not be able to find our lives harmonious. Prophets like Jesus Christ, Buddha, Krishna and Mohammed Nabi, took birth in this world in order to spread virtue, compassion, and Divine wisdom. We have to imbibe the teachings of the Divine incarnation and spread them to the society around us. Good expectations [positive thinking], group prayers and holy chanting and meditations with single aim is necessary for it.
Our aim is total transformation of our own selves as well as the world. Dharma will be the golden key for achieving those Divine goals. Let us reaffirm our commitment to live in Dharma and offer our service to the society. May the auspicious occasions for coming shower upon us more energy and spirit to live in the royal path of Dharma.
May everything be holy and Divine. May the joy and peace of Christmas be with you throughout the Year. Wishing you a season of blessings from heaven above. Happy Christmas. May the coming New Year brings to you all Prosperity, Good Health, Divine Light and Wisdom.
With Love & Blessings
