Here is a quote that touched me by William Sullivan. This is something that might inspire what we may do today and in the days ahead. We live in a time when the greatest form of courage is to act as if our lives made a difference.
All of us can have periods of time now for introspection. It’s a bit useless to think too much about what may happen in the future, instead may we feel into what we long to live and embody as is possible now, something that is true for the soul.
Any time we have the opportunity to be loving may we know is a gift to ourselves.
If we can allow it, we may be shaped into more ability to care because we have to be careful in this time of disease. Efforts spent in “heart-born” care are so vital now. May they go viral and fill the air with healing hope and mutual awareness.
As we live more consciously and more tenderly, one thing becomes transparent; we’re in all this together. What began in a remote village in China now also happens here. May we urgently turn towards loving “us” more and more, and so, in whatever means we have, begin contributing to healing what is broken in our common world.
A lovely quote by Joyce Sequichie Hifler from A Cherokee Feast of Days. I’ve only changed one word and you’ll know which one it is. Waiting tests our grit and faith, and anything else we have on the line. We activate every nerve in us to move, to do something–and then we wait. But if we wait a little longer with patience and endurance, we will know what to do. During this period, we may stir up the gifts that are in us, encourage ourselves to be strong and calm, to find a center in the midst of all the whirling debris around us.
Here’s what to do according to Susan McHenry: Work when there is work to do. Rest when you are tired. One thing done in peace will most likely be better than ten things done in panic.
