I’m driving and suddenly I notice lots of lawn signs popping up everywhere lining the streets in front of Mc Donald’s and by office buildings. Empathy, compassion, love, healing , thank you. Do we need to be reminded? Have we forgotten or lost touch with our true nature because life has just been too chaotic? Have worries, Amazon, smart phones, work and the political environment numbed us out? Has it overshadowed the essential truth that all human beings want and need the same things? We must need reminding.
These are qualities that should flow freely in a person that isn’t stressed out, fearful or feeling compromised in some way. We are so caught up that we are not able to focus on what connects us all.
It seems that compassion and a loving presence don’t just emanate from us effortlessly especially right now. We can, however, consciously decide the kind of presence we wish to be in the world and choose it over and over again. It will become hardwired into our very psyche and nervous system as we unplug from what we have grown accustomed to. Remembering the true qualities that we all share can awaken their power as we consciously lean into them over and over again. It is the brave heart, the warrior heart that will choose this path.
Remembering that there is power in right action and fall in love with this state without expectations and conditions because life doesn’t work that way. The universe works in mysterious ways that we will never fully comprehend. It’s a letting go, a surrender, a falling into the abyss and trusting a power greater than ourselves brought all this into existence. Letting go of the need to arm ourselves against life and instead trust life. The source of life has your back and will be there with the power of the universe behind it. It’s time to be the change we wish to see in the world. It’s time to remember who we really are.
