I have never been so grateful to pause in community, to hold space with one another and open to the wisdom and insight that comes when we sit quietly. My mantra this week—may you feel loved, may you feel blessed. Difficult for so many to quell the tears and sadness in the wake of such violence. So, we breathe together, we send loving kindness to ourselves and all beings everywhere. We look to contribute in any way or form that will help ease the overwhelming pain in our world. Action must be taken by all. We have the power to change some things, yet we feel powerless over the brokenness of humans.
Working together will make all the difference. Together, we can move mountains and recognize our faults. No one wants to live in a world where there is disregard for humanity. We are born into love but somehow this being human does not guarantee you to live in a safe environment with unconditional love. We need to help those who are mentally ill, and we must change the laws that do not protect our children and community. What will it take to save our country? Can we unite and work for the greater good of all? I believe strongly, we have the resources to heal a broken world, but it cannot be done alone. Together let us work with one another, not against one another.
There are more good people in this world than bad. Don't let the negative thoughts tell you otherwise. What I notice when I look into the eyes of others is their kindness and compassion. There is more love than hate. "Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that." - Martin Luther King, Jr. May you treat others with loving kindness and be the one who offers light to those in a dark place. We are human and we will make mistakes. Forgiveness is the greatest gift you give yourself and those who do harm. Life is difficult and there is deep suffering. Let's try to be the generation that moves towards positive changes. How can we become wiser, more aware, balanced, and loving?
Ahimsa means non-violence. It is one of the principles we practice on our yoga mats. To have self-love and respect for yourself is where it begins. Speak lovingly and kindly to yourself and bring this to others. Have compassion for yourself and all beings. Go out in nature and take great care of preserving our beautiful earth. Above all treat everyone with kindness and consideration. We are all in this together. Let us join hands and be the force that works from a loving, kind heart space. Imagine a world where we could all feel safe and be the change for our future generations to live in peace and harmony. I pray to God to help us.
"Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing there is a field. I'll meet you there. When the soul lies down in that grass, the world is too full to talk about. Ideas, language, even the phrase 'each other' doesn't make any sense." ~ Rumi
