What is new with you? How are you experiencing life these days?
I always find it interesting that in times of great contrast in world events, I see there is also great contrast in how people are experiencing these circumstances. I have heard people say that they don’t feel they have a purpose or just don’t know what to do to make a contribution to help. They want to do something that makes a difference or has impact. I just happened to hear this passage being read aloud recently and I thought it had the perfect suggestion for the questions I mentioned before. Please take a moment to read this passage.
“You have a tremendous work to do. It is the silent work of creating more love in the world. It is like the yeast in a lump of dough which does its work very quietly and without any fuss, and yet without it the bread would be a solid lump. Therefore love those souls you are with, love what you are doing, love your environment, and love those souls who are your seeming enemies. There is far more grace in loving the seemingly unlovable than in simply loving those souls who love you. Feel the need for love in every soul, and allow yourself to become a channel for love’s sake, so will the heaviness in the world be lightened, for love brings an element of lightness where there was heaviness and darkness. Love starts in each individual, so look within your own heart and draw it forth. Give it freely and with real joy.”
Hopefully you see there is an offer in what Eileen has stated. I was moved by her words so I’ve decided to adopt what she’s suggesting. I decided to adopt it because it feels good to make a contribution and it supports the feeling I want to live in, in my life. It feels good to love.
I’d love to hear what comes to mind for you on this idea.
I hope you are doing well and finding fresh ways to connect with the ones you love.
