It’s been a tough start to 2020 with all the heart ache around the world. Fires..crashes..extreme weather changes and many more.
The good news is that every time I find myself hearing and watching all these disasters. Im reminded that on the other side of difficulty, there’s still so much hope in the world. It may be days or weeks before we can refocus and recognize it clearly once again.
I know that wallowing in a Black Hole is not an option, because living down there means allowing our fears, negative emotions, and all that’s wrong with the world to win.
We can’t let that happen.
Somewhere between gloom and doom and optimism lives a gray area where we can make real change. In this highly aware state, we acknowledge the current climate as challenging, but also rejoice in the truth that the situation is not permanent. That it can and will change-that we can play a role in directing that change – and that our voices will be heard if we’re willing to speak out.
In other words, we come to believe the old adage, “this too shall pass.”
Families are being disrupted. Friendships are being ended. Our values are being questioned at home and abroad. Allow yourself to feel sad, angry, and confused about all of this without being sucked into that Black Hole of Hopelessness. Remember that our actions matter. Remember we are engines of change. Remember that small gestures can make large dents in the universe.
You may be tired, and feel hopeless, but don’t be scared.
This too shall pass.
I pray for hope..I pray for kindness…I pray for compassion…
We do not need to become religious, nor do we need to have the same religion or race. All that is necessary is for each of us to develop our good human qualities.
