A Statement Of Unity
News Release 12.10.2014
Spring’s Haven and Springwolf Reflections release a statement on the recent violence that has highlighted racial inequality and violence against humanity.
Everyone here at Spring’s Haven and Springwolf Reflections share concern with many in the world and within our Pagan communities regarding inequalities between people not only in the American justice system, but within our societies and cultures as well. And on the recent release of a U.S. Congressional report on torture.
As Pagans, we view all life as sacred and as such, all lives matter. That belief extends not only to human life, but ALL life. We see our Divine world in the context that I am not the Goddess, you are not the God. But you and I, and all things seen and unseen throughout the Divine Cosmos make up the Divine Consciousness of the All and Everything.
Our Ministry, associated Groups and Members add our voices to those who are not advantaged by race, religion, gender, sexual orientation or class and affirm the cry that “Your Life Matters”. We stand with and alongside those who work in Peace to end the systems that oppress the disadvantaged, exercise acts of injustice to the oppressed or cause harm through violence to any living force of this world.
We stand together with all those denouncing harm of any person, group or community. We view any actions of violence or torture as an affront to the Sacred Divine force that may be prevalent in any culture of the world. And we add our voice to the calls for accountability through legal peaceful means. And for changes in those systems where injustice and oppression exists.
We encourage and support all harmonious and nonviolent efforts by those within our communities to explore the realities of inequality and to work to find ways to eliminate injustices where ever they may arise. We hope this will create a significant measure of reflection throughout the world, and not just here in the United States to end violence and establish peace and cooperative harmony.
We share in the hope that these positive efforts will bring about new levels of understanding, appreciation and tolerance for the unique expression of the Divine spirit we each embody. We hope all in the world will gain the wisdom that we are all more alike than we are different. May the work we do together create a tolerant, peaceful and just existence tomorrow and through the decades and centuries to come.
And so mote it be, in blessings and peace.
