Please close your eyes and inhale, hold the breath and pray that all the war drums which we are hearing and the times which are harsh—may this breath, when joined with the universal breath, bring peace to the Earth and mankind. Please hold the breath and pray sincerely. Let it go.

It takes only one prayer to change the events and the time and the space. Let it go.
