Longer than I ever have in nearly 8 years...
So many things have happened, and I wanted to document them them at the time - events occurring in my life - and in the world as well. Some were magical. Some improbable. Some were mystical - and many, just surprising...
But solitude, seeking solace, journeying inward, and nurturing my spirit prevailed instead. It was all the Divine order of things...
But it doesn't really matter...
Throughout all that has happened - and all that has not - I had but one lesson that was presented to me over and over again.
I summarize it in this way:
Whatever the question, the answer is always the same:
Whatever the tasks and the challenges at hand,
Whatever life presents to you - whatever the slights, or the triumphs,
Every time we choose love, something changes. Something shifts. Something improves...
There is hope. There is joy. And there is love.
Take a moment today to consider what weighs most deeply in your heart and in your mind. And then choose love. Even if it seems impossible. Choose it nonetheless. Watch your life change. Subtly at first. Watch your perspective broaden. Watch how your heart embraces your sister. And your brother. For every person on this planet is both your sister and your brother.
For what else is there? What other response can we choose? What else matters?
