I would like to share with you a conversation between me and my mentor in Values-based Education, Dr Neil Hawkes. First you will find his invitation to comment on a values statement in celebration of IVET's  25 anniversary as a Charity. My response follows.

Dear  Sharon, Richard, Sue and Terry,

Thank you for choosing to become an Affiliate of the IVET Foundation.  

May I invite you to take part in a heart-led activity to help reshape our future?

This year is the twelfth anniversary of IVET becoming a charity. We want to mark the occasion with a series of initiatives that embody our IVET principles of understanding and living positive universal human values. We are asking twelve groups of Affiliates, each to come up with one idea that will raise awareness in others of the benefits of engaging with values, such as respect, compassion, trust, care, integrity, honesty, justice, equality, love, peace, hope and joy. One for each year we have been a charity.

I am sending this email to the four of you in the hope you might exchange creative ideas, which you might then implement, either alone or together. It may be as simple as posting something on social media that will inspire your connections. Or you may be excited by the idea of something more ambitious. If you do anything, please do let me and the IVET team know so that it can be featured on our website. 

Our aim is to highlight the many ways people can engage with values; to raise awareness of their transformational role. We know from our considerable experience in education that raising awareness of values has the impact of transforming the way people behave.

With warm wishes

Founder, International Values Education Trust (IVET)

 My Submission:

The ascension of the Sacred Feminine calls into play the balancing of yin and yang energies within males and females and the wider cosmic realm. During this time of global reset within the Age of Emancipation, Truth Seekers welcome the harmonization of the sexes and the sacred practices of living from the inside out. Understanding one’s reverent self and using the values of Ma’at as a measure of ones becoming as light as a feature in this life. These values are: Truth, honesty, justice, respect, compassion, reciprocity, balance, peace, harmony and cosmic order.

The use of daily sacred practices is recommended by me in my new book “Living Life as a Sacred Practice: Discover Yourself as a Source of Creation.” The book asks us to step into our power as divine beings having a physical presence through Spiritual practices using Mantras, Affirmations, Self-Reflection and Mindfulness to reach self mastery.

These Laws command our love and respect for the life, dignity and Goddess-given rights of all living things, as well as imposing upon us divine obligations and duties toward them, and our precious planet. By their observance we reflect the light upon the world, fusing virtue with justice, and aligning individual rights with righteousness.

These ancient ideals were created to apply to everyone regardless of belief system. There was no concept of religious bias in ancient Egypt.  People strived to live a good life in accordance to these ideals of truth, balance, order, law, morality, and justice.  The 42 Ideals of Ma'at are valuable passages of history that are as viable today as they were 5,000 years ago.

The 42 principles of Ma'at existed thousands of years before the Jewish Torah, the Christians Bible, and the Muslim Qur'an…Modern Civilization.
