Meeting with this group of Children for over 1 year, almost 2 years now, has been a truly Divine path. :) As we see they blossom and become today's teenagers who try to understand what it is living in harmony and in joy, we witness the most beautiful and precious in life. Speed, it seems as if all happens too fast and even our Children do not have the time to grasp it all and understand what truly is going on or how the world is supposed to work in harmony. Hum....
Our Children are so much joy to observe as they carry in them a Light that is Divine and endless. Seeing a Child in darkness is one of the saddest things for me personally. It is our duty, as the adults in their lives, to make sure that Light is shinning within them. Their LIGHT is magical and it heals the world's pains. Children are our hope, our power, our future. We have been observing these Children grow and becoming in tune with their nature and living balanced, joyful, and above all meaningful lives. It is a precious JOY.
On Saturday, August 30th, 2008 we met at our local library, which by the way is a GREAT place to meet. Our agenda called for a number of things and some of which of extreme importance.
Our Mission Statement reads: Mission (Full Version) The Dream Believe Inspire Group seeks partnership with the global community to honor, respect, and uplift Children, Teens, and Young Adults worldwide. Together, we motivate our posterity to chase their dreams, believe in a brighter future, and inspire others around them. We create the leaders of tomorrow who exhibit strong moral values, minds of steel, and hearts of gold. The Dream Believe Inspire Project came to life to be the change we wish to see in the future lives of today’s Children, Teens, and Young Adults. We inspire all to understand true gratitude through acts of service and support harmony between the five pillars of life-long strong belief-systems: the physical, mental, spiritual, emotional, and financial realms of life. Today we worked on understanding at a deep level what it truly means to be an enlightened being with a mind of steel and a heart of gold.
Here is what we have come to decide our Children will represent and how this can be brought to life.
