This is and excerpt taken from my dear friend Jeff Anderson’s post. May it serve and support you as it has me. This is only the ending of the article entitled Radiation, Ripples, and Human Consciousness:
Today, I changed my mind. I opened my heart and felt the suffering of the
world. It was oppressive. I chose to bring love to it. The suffering did not
disappear, but it did shift. Love infused my tears.
We can and should ache. To not do so would be to deny our humanity. But let
us not forget, in this time of global human suffering, that there is a
transformative power within each and every one of us that has the power to
affect, to offset to a greater or lesser degree, that suffering. Nothing, no
crisis, however great, can strip us of our ability to bring the
transformative power of love to any situation, any person, at any moment.
Doing so may not solve all of the worlds challenges overnight. But it may
allow us, as a species, to navigate those challenges with more compassion,
more understanding, and, without question, with more love.
My prayer for Japan this night?
Tonight I sit in holy silence. I am fully present to love in the midst of
pain. I will not turn from you. I am a bridge in consciousness for love to
cross over. May love infuse your tears. May you be free from suffering.
