The State of the World

Light HouseThe State of the World

Friends, I’m struggling.

Maybe you can help, maybe relate, maybe disagree, or maybe just hold space for those of us going through these crazy times.
But, I’m struggling…

I struggle with Expression:

of the LOVE that I physically feel as a strong, joy-filled sensation in my heart for ALL of humanity,
versus the heartbreak felt when witnessing one scene; one comment after another displaying of the inhumanity and indifference we have all sown.

I struggle with Desire:

to want so eagerly to use this “Beecken of Light” to shine LOVE and HOPE and FAITH that everything is exactly right to learn what we need to learn to progress,
versus screaming my outrage over the injustices set before us by the powers that be; where women, children, and marginalized groups are abused; where ordinarily caring, funny, engaging people are manipulated and turn on each other like hungry dogs to fight for scraps they are thrown.

I struggle with Vision:

this belief that our UNITY will create a world where the realization of our ONENESS outshines the FEAR created by individuality,
versus the DIVIDING justifications for why that can’t happen.

I struggle with Direction:

finding a path that gently leads ALL of us to our natural state of LOVE, FORGIVENESS, and COMPASSION,

versus just turning people off from a stance of JUDGEMENT.

For, that is the INTENTION: to bring us TOGETHER in the WELCOMING RECOGNITION of our CONNECTEDNESS, rather than repel through abrasiveness.
Perhaps that intention might be where we can ALL meet in the middle.

And, if there is one thing I have learned in my trips around our sun, it is that ENERGY FLOWS where INTENTION GOES.

So, perhaps the struggle ends there.
