Today, April 19, 2016, the Dumaguete node met over an extended lunch. Present were Gilbert, Frans, Melvin, and guests Inda, Koerkamp (Frans’ wife) and Bert Teodoro, the carrier of Philippine Bamboo Foundation in Dauin, Negros Oriental.
Esther presented the Mission, Vision, Pillars, and Strategies of MISSION.The presentation was met with approval.
Regarding the MISSION statement ,
“in dialogue with the universe, to activate planetary shifts to higher possibilities…”,
this inspired Gilbert to share a quote from Teilhard de Chardin :
“The day will come when, after harnessing the ether, the winds, the tides, gravitation, we shall harness for God the energies of love. And, on that day, for the second time in the history of the world, man will have discovered fire.”
Which led to another Teilhard de Chardin quotation:
“The truth is, indeed, that love is the threshold of another universe. Beyond the vibrations with which we are familiar, the rainbow-like range of its colours is still in full growth.,”
Which led to the Universe Story… All in all, a beautiful uplifting meeting of like minds.
