On Thurs 7 Aug 08 @9PM I had a deeply moving and spiritual experience when I lit candles and deeyas for Tibet. This was in unison with everyone in my time zone and done globally. I'd like to explore this and share my experiences with you and hear yours as we participate in universal collective prayer events together. I hope to work together with all the universe's beings as we move toward the ideal of Universal Collective Prayer.

Come join me in Universal Collective Prayer!

May God Bless Us All!

Advent Calendar: Wed 3 Dec 09-The Gift of Trees!

Meady’s Musings Production is always celebrating the trees and you can expect to see many references to them as this year’s Advent calendar progresses. Today on the calendar we’d like to feature trees on each of the blogs in this manner:

- Meady’s Musings-The beauty of trees
- UCP-The spirit that can be found in trees
- Books and Films Corner-Yes we kill trees to make books but hopefully it is a willing or worthy sacrifice and may blogs, kindle downloads and e-books be the books of the future so we can save them trees! But for now we will celebrate some poetry about trees!


Many trees are considered divine in Hinduism. Perhaps the one held on highest of high is the Peepal tree or the Sacred Fig or Banyan Fig also known in Buddhism to be the tree under which Buddha became enlightened…the Bodhi tree. Over the years UCP has celebrated this tree as in this blogpost:

UCP loves many stories associated with spirituality and trees and believes that many a divine spirit resides in them. Also a tree can be seen to carry out the ultimate seva…service. It provides shelter, fun, joy, food and so much more and doesn’t ask for much in return. Many trees are centuries and centuries old and UCP believes that within them lies many a divine being and spirit that sits observing the Universe as it unfolds. Many religions agree and can join with UCP in celebrating the tree. Read this site to learn more about how various religions celebrate the gifts of THE TREE!
