A Vision for Harvesting
We envision a world where nothing is taken before its time; where every fruit from every tree is allowed to stay on the branch until the exact moment when it is ready to let go; where every vegetable is allowed to stay on the vine until it has completely finished its process. We see a world where we are taught from the time we are young children to approach the plants with love and to let them drop their beautiful, sweet, nourishing fruits into our hands at the slightest touch from us.
We picture a world where we know – indeed, we see – the life-force energy / chi / prana that is in the plants, and, when we eat, we feel that life-force energy being transferred to us to the fullest extent possible because we waited until the plant is ready to give it to us.
In the same way, we see humanity having awakened to treating ourselves and the animals in the same way that we treat the fruits from the plants; where no one is taken before their time; where the life of every man, woman, child, and animal is allowed to go full term. We envision a world where all wars, killings, executions, and inhumane acts are seen now as an intrusion upon another’s path; where the sending of our innocent children – our most prized possessions – off to fight and die in war is now viewed by every thinking person as a perverse form of pedophilia, as a form of premature harvesting of their life-force energy by those who live in the shadows of our world.
Indeed, we see us living in a world where every person’s life is precious to everyone else; where we truly do unto others as we’d want done to ourselves; and where all who live and breathe upon this planet can go to sleep at night knowing, in their heart of hearts, that they will get to live out their lives, fully and freely, to the very last instant, and then to be picked, sweetly and oh-so-gently, by the loving hand of God.

A Vision for Play
We envision a world where people are no longer ‘working at life’ but are instead ‘playing at life.’ We see a world where every person is loving what they do so much that there is no clear distinction between what they do to earn money and what they truly love to do in life that aligns with their passion so much that it is just like playing.

A Vision for Discernment
We see a world where all peoples in all lands have fully developed their capacity to discern; where each and everyone of us is easily able to spot what the innermost motivations of others are; and where we are strong enough and wise enough to act upon what we know to be true.
We see a world where all secrets, deceptions, orchestrations, and hidden agendas have come to light because we know when something doesn’t feel right and true to us; we know when it won’t give us the results we’re seeking.
Accordingly, with our discerning senses forged and sharpened, we have created a wondrous new world for ourselves because we can no longer be fooled by anyone, anywhere, anytime.

A Vision for Leadership
We see our world as a reflection of what we truly are ready for and believe in with utter faith and compassion.
We see a world in which those in control of our power centers have the highest of intentions for all on this physical plane: All environments, all creatures, all cultures and societies. We see these powerful and good intentioned leaders in their native habit of love and compassion, making wise choices and setting an example for all physical creatures, in an effort toward peaceful advancement for all. We see our good intentioned leaders in a state of good physical and emotional health.
We see all the peoples of this world in dwellings of peace, well-being, beauty, and contentment; sanctuaries of rest at the end of day, and havens of love and security for ourselves and our young.
We see our community institutions, learning centers, and social gathering places as environments of interaction with one another in compassionate, happy, and positive ways, leading to advancement and expansion of society and technology, for the benefit of all.
We see, in particular, our financial institutions as well intentioned organizations, offering ethical, humane means of speedy advancement through the use of monetary credit and other forms of structured and focused energy. We see the highest good for society in this.
We see happy, industrious, productive, scrupulous, and ever-advancing societies of compassionate beings, all looking out for themselves and one another for the common good. We see ourselves ready in our hearts and our minds for good leaders,
AND WE SEE GOOD LEADERS STEPPING FORWARD NOW
So Be it and So it is!
Thank you, Michael

A Vision for Two Million Alignments – and More!
Our Vision for today was contributed by Joni Red Wing Stone and it reflects the intentions that we had in the beginning, when we first created The VAP. As you know, we surpassed the 1 Million Alignment Mark in November of 2012 and now we are doing just what Joni suggests – Going for 2 Million! Joni says:
I envision that all the Intenders of the Highest Good spread the word about this Project to other like-minded, Spirit-led and intentionally focused manifesters of a positive, Global Community living in Harmony with all creatures and resources of Mother Earth, so that by 12/12/12 Intenders of the Highest Good will reach the 1,000,000 mark – and beyond!
As a global community focused on bringing more Light and Love to this world, let us show our commitment to manifesting this Planet of Peace and Harmony by coming together to make 1,000,000 happen! (It did and we are very honored to have been a part of this wondrous project!)
Then let’s really get the ball rolling by reaching 2,000,000!
We all know Intentional Living works… let’s change the world one email at a time.
Very intentionally & lovingly,
Joni Red Wing Stone

A Vision for Free Energy
We envision ourselves living in a world where there is free energy for all, forever; where the sources of power we use to light and heat our homes, fuel our cars, run our appliances and machines, cook our foods, manufacture our goods and products, and so forth are non-proprietary; where all of the inventions that have purposely been withheld and hidden from us by those who would profit from our labors are revealed and made operational now; and where all of our energy systems are clean, non-polluting, and 100% sustainable.
In this world, our power sources are shared equally by all, for indeed, how does one pay the Sun back for the light we receive? How does one own the winds, the waters, the geothermal reservoirs? In a world where we truly care for one another, there are no charges, no exchanges of money; just thanks given for the gifts we receive from that which was already free in the first place.

A Vision for an Explosion of Love
Our Vision today comes in from Stephen Nalty and it says much about what we who started The VAP were envisioning when we created this wondrous project. Thank You, Stephen! He says:
We intend & envision an explosion of love enveloping & rendering harmless all other types of explosions & transmuting their force into the power of love. We see explosions of brilliantly, never seen before, colored rainbows everywhere followed by the appearance spectacular Mecca’s. We hear explosions of musical rapture; the powerful, yet gentle, sound of trumpets throughout the cosmos. We feel explosions of orgasmic sensations coursing through our veins & all throughout our bodies. We smell explosions of delicate & delightful fragrances that we never experienced before. We know that the love is exploding within, around & throughout all that is simultaneously. We feel a sense of gratitude & appreciation so profound that we have to pinch ourselves. We feel a deep, deep sense of peace & unconditional love that we have searching for so very, very long.
And we now know that we are loved, no matter what.
