Be the Light
The entire world is experiencing an invisible force that has and still is in many cases, creating great suffering among it’s people. On top of that, our country has seen a great injustice occur in the killing of George Floyd. This great injustice has people protesting in the streets all across our nation. Yes, a great injustice occurred and we need to see change. How we move on from here begins with us making one choice we can make on a daily basis. This one choice requires us to ask ourselves how do we want to respond.
There are two ways in which we can respond. One leads towards division and selfishness and the other towards togetherness and selflessness. My hope is that each of us choose the latter. We respond with an open heart. We respond with love and choose to focus on what bonds us together rather than what separates us. We are all brothers and sisters in the grand scheme of things, after all. We are all one human race all living together on one Earth, after all.
Yes, there will be days where we feel overwhelmed, discouraged or even angry. This happens to all of us from time to time. When this happens we must acknowledge and honor our own feelings so they may pass through us instead of getting stuck within us. Placing a hand over our heart while we pray or meditate can assist in the healing process. When we honor our feelings we can get back to a centered state of being.
Within the darkness, there is light. To be the light within the darkness, begin each day with an open heart. To be the light within the darkness, begin each day with the intention to be kind. For when we choose to be the light within the darkness is when we begin to be the change we wish to see in the world. Namaste, my brothers and sisters.
