This is a very interesting time we live in. It looks like everything is blowing up as people point fingers, yell at one another, and angrily type their opinions.
But I have faith. I think sometimes things need to get really ugly before they can get better. There is a proverbial stirring of the pot, which allows the buried, the subconscious, the unspoken, the repressed, the pain, the shame, the hurt, the fear, to come to the surface.
And when something comes to the surface, the light can touch it & heal it. It doesn’t happen in an instant, but rather it is a process, one in which requires faith.
Recently, many people have had their own personal pot stirred, allowing old wounds to come up to the surface, hopefully to be heard & healed. That’s a beautiful thing.
On top of that we have a societal stirring of the pot, where many old unconscious (or maybe very conscious) beliefs are rising to the surface…hopefully to be healed. With recent events, the underlying misogyny (which can show up in the form of split energy of “I want you around but you can only show up in a specific manner”) has come to the surface, becoming even more apparent for those of us who have been aware of it, as well as helping open the eyes of others who were not quite as aware. That’s a beautiful thing.
Of course there are many who will fight to keep things the same. Maybe at this point they can’t even see past their own fear of change to even be open to other possibilities or others’ perspectives…
I truly believe we are all one. And although I don’t condone all behaviors, I want to choose to stay rooted in love. I may falter from time to time, but I will always come back to love, because my faith is in love.
As Martin Luther King Jr. said, “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that.”
Let’s bask in the light & heal together, knowing that this is all just part of the process.
I love you all.
