The idea is beginning to catch on and is based on my German language book “Der Himmelsgarten”, that has now been accepted by the Yad VaShem Holocaust Museum for scholars to review. The idea of engaging in this kind of spiritual guerilla gardening could help reveal the real scapegoat for what it is: unadulterated greed, exploitation, jelously, and hatred. I got the idea after visiting Dachau a few years ago. I was trying to think of a symobol so positive, that would act as a tremendous force to counterbalance that kind of negativity. My idea was to ask the President to assemble children from all over the world to weed out hate on the White House grounds. From that venue, every child in the world would be called upon to extract one single weed. With all of the energy in the crowds, you are in the best position to catylize a spiritual evolution to change the world for the better. Let’s weed out hate, and begin to occupy the one and only spirit of God and Nature.
