Heart-forward

             Many of us are having a difficult time right now.  There is unrest and what appears to be unjust actions.  We don’t know every story from every person, but we hear enough to cause us pain.

             Sometimes, the stories are close to us, sometimes, farther away.  Distance means nothing when we are aware of how others suffer, how anyone suffers.  We all cope in different ways.

             Personally, I struggle.  I face grief issues.  I have an eating disorder.  I am no longer insured.  I was laid off.  It’s challenging to make ends meet.  Depression is close and closer.

             I’m not great at getting out of my own way.  I’m extraordinarily wonderful at helping YOU do it, though.  When everything just feels too heavy and too sad and too wrong, as I’ve said before, I reach out.  I recommend it, highly.

             Here is a quote from Colette Baron-Reid:

“Peace, love, forgiveness, compassion, and kindness are the antidotes for the world today.  Ask yourself – how can I make Peace the power that guides my heart?

Then listen and follow the signs.  Don’t let the unrest in the world rob you of Peace.  Let today be the beginning of a revolution of peace and prosperity for all!

Let it begin with gratitude.  Even if you can find no reason in the temporary conditions of life.  Find it in your heart.”

             I have trouble, every single day.  But, but, but ….. when I discover something like this, I know that I can make it.  I know that I can make it through one more day.  I know that I can force the Peace to calm my terror.

             I know that I can live in this world, this world where bad happens, but where good is never far away.

             Never far, is our

Hope

             We can’t give up (as Doreen says) just before the miracle arrives.  We can’t let the hate win.  Our job is to be informed, and then share the lovingkindness we know to be our Hope and our future.

             Even in the dark, we have never been let down by the dawning of a new day.  Even in the confusion, we have never been denied clarity of thought.

             Even on our card altar now, we see the balance.

  1. *sigh* That picture reminds me of a tiny porch I once had. Just big enough for a chair and table. It was to the side of a bay window on the side of an old farmhouse, right under an ooold oak tree. Oh, how I miss that house!

  2. I will join you on the porch. I will bring Faith and Charity. We will break bread together, heal what we can, and ignore the rest.
