Last Night I Thought --
Last night I thought, again, that love is the only answer . . . to everything. Not an original thought, of course, but nonetheless profound. When all else fails, when the injustice in the world, the suffering of others (and, of course, our own suffering) becomes too much to bear, all we can do is summon all our love from the depths of our souls and spread it around, now. ( to people AND animals, in my case)
Gail Straub of the Empowerment Institute wrote a book called, "The Rhythm of Compassion," in which she talks about how to rest and rejuvenate when we are otherwise constantly providing support and comfort and healing to others.
How do YOU (each of you) do that? I find that, although I'm widely considered a "solar" personality, I need a great deal of down time, quiet time, time for reflection and time when I don't have to make, or listen to, small talk!
I'd love to hear from each or any of you in this sacred group of Listeners -- and we are a sacred group! -- about how you restore your own weary soul, in between your magnificent efforts to make the world a kinder, gentler place.
With Love, Support and Interest,
