Discernment and discretion are the watch words for this time in our evolution but compassion is the light we must nurture in our hearts. Overcoming old behavior in spite of our fears is courage. this is the attribute we must all cultivate in order to heal humanity and rise above the negative programs embedded in our collective conciseness. I pray "peace" and "balance" to every soul now on Earth.

I was fortunate to meet Wadri on one occassion. He seemed to be such a gentle person with a smile that radiated. The loss of this fine young man will be felt in several continents. That in itself is quite an accomplishment. Mary, may you find peace in the empty spaces around you. We love you!!
