"There are two ways of spreading light...to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it."~ Edith Wharton
Good morning! I say good morning because we woke up today and we can still do something good. I honestly am not sure how people read this blog, but even if there is just one or two of you, please know I am here and you can reach out. (Simply go to the CONNECT page and message me to chat and I would love to hold space for you.)
Everything feels so dark, divided and chaotic in our country at this time and I know a lot of the world is hurting right now. I am trying as hard as I can to take some time to realign to my own heart, my own truth, and to make sure that I don't speak with haste; because I am human, and I have. Please know that I am not going to leave you hanging; I will search to find my words that unite us together. Yes, unite. This space is for healing. Everyone's. BUT, this is a safe space and hate will never be accepted or glossed over. We can have open and loving and respectful dialogue. I will do my best to choose my own words carefully and to bring you some guidance if you need it. I need it too. At this moment, I know there are a lot of us feeling like we are caught in a tornado; spiraling gusts of air just picking things up and tossing them around and spitting them out and everything feels so broken. But WE are not broken. We stand together in the name of Love. In search of love. And we must keep looking for it.
In the meantime, go out there and spread the love and do what you CAN do. Let us see each other as HUMANS and stop being so hateful. If you SEE or HEAR something fucking shitty, stand up and say something and don't be passive. As well, start SEEING and HEARING (LISTENING) to your fellow humans. Everyone has pain and everyone is suffering and we ALL just want to find a way to stop the pain and stop the suffering.
I will share more soon; I have things to say. I know you must have things to say too. We need a place to be safely seen and heard and held. You have found that space. The Art of a Happy Heart was birthed for times like these. Together our medicine will heal the world. And if it doesn't, we tear it down and start again. And again. And again. Until a new earth is born of our heart fire.
Listen, growth of any kind is not comfortable. We must be willing to dig deep and unearth dark truths. And bring light into the world. It is TIME to get uncomfortable and do the dirty work. Are you ready? I am. Let's do this shit together.
We "do NOT go gentle into that good night. Old age should burn and rave at close of day; rage, RAGE against the dying of the light."~ Dylan Thomas
