There is still softness in the world. There are still people who love and who want peace and who care. We have golden light and a beautiful moon and skies that change color. Flowers are sprouting up from the earth like they’re singing to the sky. We still have sunshine and bird songs and a great big planet to stand on as we hurdle through space.
The experience of being at this world can be beautiful and terrible and everywhere in between. There is a full spectrum from the best to the worst of things available here. Please choose softness and sweetness and love when possible. We have enough harshness all around us. May we find solace in appreciating the parts of our world worth celebrating. Though we cannot come together physically, we can unite in gratitude for each other and the world that we inhabit. We are so lucky to have each other, we are lucky to be here, and we have the strength to hold out hope for a more deeply interconnected future with ourselves, each other, and our planet.
I say all this because I know sometimes it is easy to forget! We all experience concern for the future, but please don’t let that rob you of the present. Focusing on what we want to see in the world will help us collectively manifest a happier reality. I believe in you, I believe in me, and I believe in the world, no matter what.
Spiritual pep talk time! Logging into this blog just now felt like busting open a REALLY creaky door in the middle of the night, probably waking up a roommate. (Am I still welcome here?!?) I’m ashamed to say I nearly abandoned this magical place!
I have a confession to make. I’m not a witch for a living (although I hope someday to cast a spell that pays the bills). I have a full time day job and a dog just like you. For a time I really just let my life get in the way of, uh, well, my life. Has this ever happened to you?
