While working out a plan for blogging more often, one of the prompts I decided upon is “How do I feel?”, and let me tell you…lately, it’s despair. I was scrolling through quotes on Goodreads about despair, and this jumped out:
“When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they can seem invincible, but in the end, they always fall. Think of it–always.”
― Mahatma Gandhi
I sit, reading Twitter frequently, holding back tears and the screams that long to be given voice…and then, when I’m just about to burst, I remember that I can do something to help.
I send light.
It’s a simple thing, it helps me feel better, and it definitely helps the other person feel better. When I remember to “be the light”, I become the light. Does that make sense? The light fills me as it is flowing through me, and for that space in time, I am the light and I feel calm and joyful and filled with hope again.
I would love to help you feel hope again, too, even if it’s just for an afternoon. The sessions are still free until Saturday, midnight MST, don’t forget. Here’s how to get one!
