About Our Speaker
Kurt Krueger

Kurt Krueger Kurt Krueger is a global citizen born in Los Angeles whose is serving a regenerating society and life on our planet as a Polymath, Philosopher, Explorer, Alchemist for Love, and Pragmatic Futurist. So it seems appropriate when he is introducing listeners to his world peace dream project that he likes to quote Lama Gangchen --“Peace with Everything, and Everything with Peace.”

Then Kurt explains: “We are envisioning a powerful step for Humanity Rising forward and upward by creating a National ‘Department of Peace’! We get to act as HUMANKIND, to Be Both.

“We are not part of the United States Institute of Peace nor any other organization.

Winning Ways for Living “The National Department of Peace is experimenting with a new way of bringing Peace to our planet. Bottom up and around and about. THE COVID EXPERIENCE is like being in the chrysalis ~ we're Imaginal/Intentional cells ~ when we communicate and collaborate in a frequency designed to bring about a new alchemy of peace, we will break through the outer tough barrier of the cocoon that has kept us from experiencing the harmony of being seven billion strong and realize the strength and vitality of one world.

“Spiritually Creative Life ~ Where have we brought our spirituality into life? Have we brought it into the workplace, our community, our world? The Wisdom of the ages can be merged everywhere ~ even on to Capitol Hill. Although, maybe not as fast as we'd like! This program will offer diverse ways to use our spirituality to thrive for ourselves AND others.

Cosmography: The Writing of the Universe“When you have any ideas that could bring peace in any manner, anywhere, anytime, please apply it and then share it. With us too…

“March 8-12, we’re planning a major podcast of about 2-3 weeks spread out over the year, 90 minutes on weekdays. Your participation would be much appreciated.

“Together we fly more easily… :) The worldwide Department(s) of Peace will dramatically reduce violence and wars… We get what we focus upon. Shalom.”

 


For the time being, the Salon will continue to meet on Zoom. When appropriate, we will meet in person once again at Arroyo del Rey.

“One Family Unity”
Lyrics & Music by Dean Carlston

Earth is an oasis in a Celestial embrace
A fragile pearl suspended in its own space
We must create our own destiny, in truth Earth's destiny too
We can create peace and unity
Our future depends on me and you
So, let's all come together creating our own mandate
Effective change will free us from prejudice and hate
Begin as individuals reaching out arms open wide
We will make the difference working together side by side
We humans hold dominion over earths creatures
large and small
Earth's great wealth and beauty must be accessible to us all
We with all our differences truly hold the key
Unity will never come until we all agree
To see beyond our differences, which make us each unique
To love and protect each other and leave the rest to
God's critique
When greed and envy are cast aside
When love and caring take their place
We'll create a united family for the entire human race

 

"Do You Believe?"
Lyrics and Music by Nancy Glowacki

What can be standing in our way of finding
Peace in the world today?
The answer lies in you and me when
We know and live what we believe...
Do you believe this earth was meant for keeping?
Do you believe you’re part of the plan?
Do you believe that love’s awake or sleeping?
Do you believe in the family of man?

Open your heart to hear the answer...
Listen to what it wants to say
Look behind the fears...
The pain held through the years
Let love remembered gently lead the way
Find the answers for this moment...
Let the past be gone somehow
What has gone before isn’t needed any more
Hope lies only in the now...
So If you believe this earth was meant for keeping
If you believe you’ve part of the plan
If you believe that love’s awake and not sleeping
Then bring your peace to the family of man...
You can be peace in the family of man...
Live your peace in the family of man...
If you believe.

 

"Shir Ha Tikvah Shir Shalom"
[A Song of Hope and a Song of Peace]

YOU'RE MY SHALOM, YOU ARE MY TIKVAH, UHH
THERE IS HOPE AND THERE IS TIVAH, UHH

SHIR HA TIKVAH SHIR SHALOM

 

"Peace Like a River in My Soul"

PEACE LIKE A RIVER IN MY SOUL,
PEACE LIKE A RIVER IN MY SOUL

It repeats again and again like a prayer or mantra.

 

"A Song of Peace"
By Ruth Broyde Sharone
Copyright June 28, 2016

O Peace, where are you hiding?
Come out and show your face!
O Peace, silently chiding
Our wayward human race

Our world is torn and violent
Great pain and grief prevail
O Peace, be not you silent
Come forth and lift your veil.

CHORUS:
A song of peace is what we need,
A song of peace in word and deed
A song of peace to light our way
A song of peace to sing today

A song of peace so clear and pure
A song of peace that will endure
A song of peace, our hopes unfurled
A song of peace that fills the world

O Peace, we've lost our bearing
We're stranded out at sea
Until we show some caring
We'll repeat our history

We beg you to come closer
Embrace us all day long
O Peace, be our composer
And help us find our song.

CHORUS:
A song of peace is what we need,
A song of peace in word and deed
A song of peace to light our way
A song of peace to sing today

A song of peace so clear and pure
A song of peace that will endure
A song of peace, our hopes unfurled
A song of peace that fills the world

(REPEAT LAST LINE)
A song of peace that fills the world

 

"I Believe"
Lyrics and Music by Sammy Kahn and Al Stillman

I believe for every drop of rain that falls
A flower grows
I believe that somewhere in the darkest night
A candle glows
I believe for everyone who goes astray, someone will come
To show the way
I believe, I believe

I believe above the storm the smallest prayer
Will still be heard
I believe that someone in the great somewhere
Hears every word

Every time I hear a new born baby cry
Or touch a leaf or see the sky
Then I know why, I believe.
