Parvati Magazine for MAPS, Marine Arctic Peace Sanctuary, Letter from the Editor-Parvati

OnWord – Fall 2019

Thank you for reading the Fall 2019 issue of Parvati Magazine.

We need to stay true to our vision, especially as we face the varying challenges life brings. We learn to put the things that are most important to us as our highest priority, rather than getting caught up in the nitty-gritties of life, and watch time slip away. We learn to meet parts of ourselves and our lives that may even scare us. “Oh, I will get to that later”, we may tell ourselves in an elusive attempt to curb our fears. But when does later come? How long are we willing to wait? What is the cost of waiting? Focusing on our highest priorities is essential to living a fulfilled life. What we often forget, is that when we follow our bliss, we do it not only for ourselves. Because we are interconnected, we do it also for the world. That is exactly what makes MAPS so beautiful. It is not just a circle around physical space. It is a focused summoning of a profound shift. By establishing an inner peace sanctuary, we protect our shared world.

When you say yes to who you are, you are saying yes to life. The energy of that “yes to life” touches everyone you meet. It also goes out to the universe and supports all beings, including those you may never meet. When you stay focused and say yes to your soul voice, yes to life, everyone wins. Now, embrace what this moment brings and choose to live your highest joy. Go forward with a heart filled with courage, and roar a huge “Yes!” to life.

Love yourself.
Love others.
Love our world.
We are one Earth family.
