Children of the Earth 2013

Pioneering Spiritual Activism

Children of the World
As you have heard, a critical tool in promoting spiritual activism has been developed by COE;

 "Pioneering Spiritual Activism: A Handbook for Young Leaders"However a handbook on a shelf does little to inspire the hearts and minds of global youth. CoE is interested in offering workshops to individuals and groups around the world to train you(th) for this inner leadership program.
Our trainers are youth and adults willing to offer this course of study. 
To do this Children of the Earth needs your help! 





REFLECT is the journey that we take to awaken the inner self. The path may include meditation, contemplation, and/or prayer. As we become still, we hear the inner calling of our authentic self and experience personal purpose.



bridges the perceived gap between self and others and leads to unity. Through 
deep compassion and listening, conflict transcendence and non-violent commun-ication, we learn that it is possible to live in harmony, and thus we weave the interconnectedness of our family worldwide.




ACT is taking the inspired will to serve others in the world through individual actions, local projects and global work These acts are based on spiritual principles and ethics of Spiritual Activism.

Ancient Wisdom Revealed - New Beginnings


Nina Meyerhof


I just was standing on the grounds of the Mayans, these ancient wise ones. I had pilgrimaged here from cold Vermont. I felt the intensity of my physical form needing to plant itself next to the pyramid. It was a calling. It was a time of remembering...a time to deconstruct and reconstruct...a place to link with the end of an era and to begin a new understanding of the self and the world. The Mayan calendar had come to its conclusion, the Hopi prophesies had predicted these times, 1000 Buddhas are still to be born, the New Group of World Servers have come to create peace in the world, the people are to be Christed and more. I had jumped out of my cultural box years ago to give myself to this marker of time. Of course I would travel to a Mayan site...though not was always planned. It was not doomsday but my birthday.

Oneness Declaration


1. I am part of the world. The world is not outside of me, and I am not outside of the world. The world is in me, and I am in the world. 


2. I am part of nature, and nature is part of me. I am what I am in my communication and communion with all living things. I am an irreducible and coherent whole with the web of life on the planet. 


3. I am part of society, and society is part of me. I am what I am in my communication and communion with my fellow humans. I am an irreducible and coherent whole with the community of humans on the planet. 


Gyorgyi: With the consciousness that arose in me, my life has taken on new meaning. I will never be lonely again, never feel alone. Because I am not alone and disconnected, I am an essential part of everybody and everything around me. I am one with the world, and have always been, even if with my earlier, and now discarded duality-consciousness I did not know it. 


4. I am more than a skin-and-bone material organism: my body, and its cells and organs are manifestations of what is truly me: a self-sustaining, self-evolving dynamic system arising, persisting and evolving in interaction with everything around me.  


I now realize that I am an integral part of the world, a member of the human and the Earth community. I live my life, but the life I live is not only my life: it is the life of the entire human and Earth community. I live it the best way I can. This is not a choice for me; it is a duty. Even more than a duty, it is simply the way I am, a human being endowed with a consciousness of oneness and belonging.
