Beloved Flower Lover,
55 per cent of Scotland voted to remain in the 307-year-old Union
This is a landmark moment, morning, day. A beat in the heart of the UK. A beat in the heart of Britain. The heart was pumping hard. Filled with blood. Revitalised with answers, solutions found. Such a pure mirror. the heart beating listening to the lesson, message and gift of this time. Now, it’s a time to be still and reflect with this result. And look at the beauty of this time. Look at beauty. Maybe flowers. Anything that is wordless but reflects the peace of this time. Anythng that mirrors our relationship to ourselves.
Beauty. Light sitting in light. At peace with the darkness of all!
We are now meeting our shadow, our provocative anger, our fear deeply buried in this exercise of Scotish Independence that we have allowed to come up and become rebalanced. Anything we have overlooked has been reviewed. So now we can just sit still and consider it all. No more resisting.
Have we changed?
We have called the grace of our oneness into a clear focal point. The beauty of this time has flowered. The beauty of our hearts, shifted by oneness is contagiously beautiful. We have undertaken the exercise and separation, that optical illusion has been reviewed. And oneness, the expression of who we really are has come up as our thought for the day. Bloomed as it is today.
This process has been so earnest. And now it’s time to just let it happen as we open up to the new day. In peace.
The Better Together campaign, demonstrated that today with the voting results coming out of Scotland last night. The value of Sterling rose dramatically in the early hours as results were being declared in favour of the Better Together campaign.
Speaking at 6.30am, Mr Salmond accepted the verdict of the people as he conceded defeat in the referendum on Scottish independence.
However, he said that the people of Scotland had only rejected independence “at this stage”, suggesting he believes that another referendum is possible in the future.
Addressing supporters in Edinburgh, Mr Salmond said: “I accept that verdict of the people and I call on all of Scotland to follow suit in accepting the democratic verdict of the people of Scotland.”
He added: “We have seen a scare and a fear of enormous proportions…at the heart of the Westminster establishment as they realised the mass movement of people that was going forward in Scotland.
“Today of all days, as we bring Scotland together, let us not dwell on the distance we have fallen short; let us dwell on the distance we have travelled.”
With national turnout expected to reach around 85 per cent, Unionists celebrated overwhelming victories in their traditional strongholds such as Orkney, Edinburgh and the Scottish Borders.
Edinburgh voted against independence by 61 per cent to 39 per cent.
Better Together also had huge victories in East Lothian, where they had a 24 per cent lead, Stirling, where they won by 20 per cent, and Midlothian, where the margin of victory was 12 per cent.
Alistair Darling, the leader of the Better Together campaign, said the victory was a “momentous day not only for Scotland but for the United Kingdom as a whole”.
Both sides had their say:
We are grateful for the energy of a discussion, where people weighed up what they felt was important.
Let’s continue to take that energy of balancing the issues that are very dear to our deepest heart. Let that guide us into the autumn, winter and beyond. Only now looking for the peace that always sits in side of us. Whatever happens next, let’s remain unified in peace. Why?
For peace to come into the world it needs you in order, for you to come into balance. Fulfilling that need is the highest act of love, and only through your love can you fulfill your love for others. Turn to your inner peace, as you are in the world, for the protection of the world. Because,if we are one then the good I do to you I have done to myself—is this not the key to wealth and health?
