The Brahma Kumaris extend our deepest sympathies and compassion to all in Australia affected by the recent fires.
Throughout this disaster, there have been outpourings of support and goodwill for Australia from around the world generally, and we have also received many messages within the global Brahma Kumaris network.
As meditators, we know the impact of intention. When many of us focus together, the collective power and vibrations have a greater effect. In support for those suffering from the bushfires, including animals and nature, many people have gathered at Brahma Kumaris centres in Australia and all over the world to do special meditation and spread vibrations of peace, love, care and support.
Two of our residential retreat centres, in the Blue Mountains and Wilton to the southwest of Sydney, evacuated for extended periods of time. Several retreats were also cancelled as a precautionary measure to ensure the safety of residents and retreat participants.
We also appreciate and would like to acknowledge how heartening it has been to see that many positive stories of hope, generosity and human goodness have been emerging. This is very valuable in the midst of situations which we all find challenging. The road to recovery will also be long and we hope this resilience will continue.
