"The universe lies with in the plan and it always goes according to the plan. That is the plan of the Gods. There are times when human life is distressed and is put into a state of turmoil. The more disturbed it is, there will be frustration. We are now faced with this situation in the form of a bad economy, joblessness, mental distress, ecological devastations, floods, earthquakes, and death to our oceans. We call out for peace and harmony for our universe, for our world, for our waters, for our country, for our state, for our county, for our city or town, for our home, for our family, and for ourselves. We promote a sense of well being. We build strong friendships, a positive attitude among mankind. We win over our enemies when going through critical and bad planetary periods. We overcome , promote, and prosper. Peace of Peace."

"I now invite those that wish to stay to sit and meditate and soak in the vibrations!"
