In the wake of recent tragedy, I lovingly offer this to help coax your beautiful heart out of despair and into a space of hope:
My heart is breaking for the innocent,
head straining to comprehend the incomprehensible,
heart beating as though it can outrun these feelings.
Tears anoint this space, falling from my fingertips.
The illusion that it is easier not to feel
shatters as I remember our humanity depends upon these emotions.
One thought remains:What shall we DO?
In this moment. Right now. In the face of anguish and tragedy.
The answer arrives upon a wisp of grace.
BREATHE – fan the bellow of your lungs with the breath of life.
LOVE – for even as your heart breaks, you may save another’s.
SHARE – speak your truth, ask for help when you need it, share the gifts that come easily to you. You matter more than you know!
CONNECT – you are in the soulful company of kindred spirits connected heart to heart around the world. Together, we can bring healing.
CHOOSE ONE SMALL STEP FORWARD – in a world where chaos seems to reign, we have the opportunity to walk with compassion, empathy and strength. Find the next right step in this moment, follow through, and the next one will take care of itself.
With Love and Alchemy,
