Signatories response to initiators letter of November 21st
In response to the initiators letter of November 21st soon after the world crisis, we have received replies from a number of our founding signatories some of which we post below.
My deepest gratitude for each of your Beings, and for your continued inspiration which calls us each to keep alive our own divine spark.
Not long after our gathering, I began working on a book to be dedicated to the Fuji Declaration in which I hope to inspire a call to move toward a culture of oneness which honors diversity. My intention is to create a universal story (a parable of sorts) which can reach across cultural, religious, or other differences and speak to that place which we connect… the place which already longs to act in alignment with our divine spark instead of react from fear or anger. I call this place (and the book title) The Land of And. I will keep you posted on the development, but for now wanted to share with you what is in movement here.
I wish to express, as strongly as possible, my entire support to your expression of concern about the present world trend which may lead to the annihilation of humankind and other forms of life on the Earth. I wish to reiterate my support to the Fuji Declaration, and work closely with you all in igniting the fire of Peace and Reconciliation in the hearts of all peoples affected by these unbelievable choice of world leaders to start a process of a vicious circle of violence. We need to develop a counter-process of Non-Violence, Peace and Justice based on the unity and diversity of Life on this Planet.
Yes, “Reawaken the divine spark in the spirit of humanity”.
The awakening of inner divinity or one’s relation with God must be incorporated so that all those who participate are put on the path of reviving their divinity or reviving their relation with God. Interfaith or cultural gatherings must be accompanied with Divine awakening of oneself.
This is indeed a big challenge to be addressed and rightly spoken by Mother Teresa who said, Feeding the stomachs of the poor is not so difficult. Feeding the starving hearts of humanity with God’s love — that is the great challenge”.
So I feel, inter-faith Dialogue has to mature to explore new horizons in promoting welfare services or other activities such that it should harmonize the external as well as the inner life of mankind and also sustain the link between inner self and universal consciousness/God.
I am with you and will do all that I can to support the divine spark in those that I encounter.
With love and gratitude for all your good work.
We admire you for advising people to look within ourselves what and how we are conducting ourselves in relation to larger humanity. It is now time to give up being individualistic and be conscious of the feelings, interests and welfare of other members of a nuclear family. We should always remember God who wants us to live as members of a global family and that is why divine spark is necessary in our spirit.

Your message is perfect timing because this afternoon I am speaking to several hundred people and I will share your words and discuss ways people can transform their thinking and inspire others.
I use many examples of animals teaching us deeper love, kindness, respect for all life, and the meaning of true courage.
We can become love in action in the world.
Now is the time for all of us to show up in our most empowered voice and that is exactly what I will do.
I am happy to participate in all endeavors as we move forward.
