A recent message shared
“We pray ‘fraspayokhedram’ progress and removing discord. We are pained by the suffering of humanity where innocent Beings have been killed and devastated in thousands. Wars must be stopped and some understanding and tolerance must be brought in. We are truly saddened by destructive events.
We send positive thoughts of Peace and progress in every part of the world to every country in the World and all Peoples of all Nations.
May the Divine Energy spread vibrations of Peace, love, joy and healing to All.”
