Following the Path of Transformation

This is an inspiring message sent by Weston Pew, one of the members of our URI Global Youth CC, to the URI global youth community at the beginning of 2010, as a New Year's Greeting.... "In this universal breath that is this moment we hold the power for absolute destruction or absolute transformation. Each of us feels this possibility from within and I believe that each of us is here right now at this time to access our greatest human potential, our greatest individual gifts and direct them towards the transformation of the greater good. In a sense we are all here as midwives to usher in this new chapter of human existence on earth and within the universe." Weston is traveling on the Sacred Door Trail right as we speak. We look forward to hearing of his experiences when he returns!
