When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares.”
~ Henri Nouwen
Today I am in deep reflection on how drastically life has changed in the past few months. The world is realigning, we are being forced to revert to a more simpler, gentler, and conscious way of living.
We are having to adjust to a life that calls for us to embrace things like contentment, joy, gratitude, meaning, and commitment as we stand no longer for the ‘Me or I’ but for the ‘We’ because ‘We’ are now having to pool our resources for the survival of ‘We!’
We as asking ourselves, will we find that calm in the storm? And, greater still, how can we each find some inner strength during this time and carry it forward to light the path ahead of us?
We are presented with new opportunities for how we will show up, what choices we will make. Even in this vortex, we must keep committed and find that precious, expansive space of abundance in our lives.
🦋 Remember: Energy flows where attention goes! Be aware of all of the ways abundance shows up around you.
I celebrate my unity with all life, knowing we are all one.
