My dear readers,
We are living in a time when many of our hearts and souls cry out in frustration, fear, and despair.
This week, many of us here in the USA have experienced one of the most turbulent elections in our history.
We seem to be battling over who can save us, our values, our finances, our families, and our dreams.
I am sad to see that relationships of all kinds are becoming strained and some are even ending. Longtime friends and lovers alike are severing their connection with each other over their strong political opinions.
Our household is no different.
We have family members who do not agree on which candidate should have been chosen to hold the presidential seat...but here are a couple of things to consider:
No one person, in my experience, has ever saved us as individuals, or as a country.
We create the change we desire in the world within the walls of our own home and the communities and neighborhoods we live in.
The relationships being strained and severed over politics will leave more of a mark on our lives than a person who sits in the White House for the next four years.
I know, I know… we can all get riled up over gun rights, immigration (especially if you are an immigrant yourself), human rights, the state of our economy, and health care…I get it. These are challenges that we need to address but please remember that through it all, we are more alike than different.
Please remember through it all, we are more alike than different.
I strongly encourage you to search for the places we all have in common instead of the few ways we are different.
I have learned from my years of mediation that both sides of any disagreement possess a thread of truth and contribution regardless of how impossible it seems.
“No matter how thin you slice it, there is always another side.” -Tony Robbins
We are all humans, we all bleed red, we all want to feel safe, have freedom, feel hope in times of pain and despair and experience deep love and connection. Remember this!
Stay away from judgment and reach for curiosity about someone’s beliefs. You will then begin to have a sense of understanding and this understanding will lead to the threads of union.
In moments of connection, we seem more the same than different. We can gain insights into a soul even if it is just for a moment. This is love in its grandest form. Reminding all of us that at the end of the day, we all share the same emotions and have the same desires for a good and happy life for ourselves and our families.
The destination is the same, we simply disagree on the many ways to get there.
Pour your love around right where you are. Let is spill over regardless of what is taking place in the world. This will pave the way for all of our hopes and dreams regardless of the road we choose to arrive at our destination.
There is magic happening all over the world. Someone is falling in love, right now! A child is laughing in pure delight, right now!
I urge you to connect with others and know it is you who will calm the storms of humanity. Yes, YOU! One connection at a time.
My promise to you is this is the way to calm your fears, give hope to your heart, and freedom to your soul.
