Dear Light Group,

There is a great need for a breakthrough of the Light in the relationship between Iran and the United States and between Iran and the rest of the world.  Tensions are running high: oil tankers have been attacked, a drone has been downed, and there is the potential for escalating violence.  

For the Americans, the strain in the relationship goes back to 1979, when Iranians took American Embassy officials hostage.  For the Iranians, the resentments go back to 1953, when the CIA engineered a coup that ousted a left-wing leader of Iran, the democratically-elected prime minister, Mohammad Mossaddegh.  For Iran and the rest of the world, it goes back centuries, back to the Ancient Greeks and the Greco-Persian Wars and then a series of Persian (Iranian) Empires, intermittently stretching from the 6th century B.C. to the 20th century.  

More recently, Iran (which is Shia) has been fighting proxy wars against Sunni states in the Middle East in countries such as Yemen, Syria, and Lebanon.  Iranian forces have also been blamed for acts of terrorism.

It’s a mess.

Let us bring our Light and Love to this situation.  You might want to try a prayer such as, “Thank you, God, for Thy Light and Love filling the people of Iran.  Thank you, God, for Thy Light and Love filling the people of the United States.  Let there be a flow of Love and Light between the Iranians and the Americans.  Thank you, God, for Thy Light and Love filling the people of Saudi Arabia.  Let there be a flow of Light and Love between the Saudis and the Iranians.  Thank you, God, for Thy Light and Love filling the Gulf States.  Let there be a flow of Love and Light between the Iranians and the people of the Gulf States.  Thank you, God, for Thy Light and Love filling the Sunnis.  Let there be a flow of Love and Light between the Sunnis and the Shia.  Thank you, God, for Thy Light and Love filling the people of Europe.  Let there be a flow of Love and Light between the Europeans and the Iranians.  Thank you, God, for filling the people of Earth with Thy Peace.  Let Thy Peace fill Earth and everyone and everything on Earth.  Thank you, God, for making it so.”

Love and Light,
Tully
