This is such an important message for this time! The most important contribution we can make, particularly if we begin to believe it is all too overwhelming and that we can’t make a difference, is simply to be calm and to share the light of our souls with others. I’ve been too quiet on here for quite some time…..this beautiful post from “Mindfulbalance” has, perhaps, inspired me to begin writing again….
One of the most calming and powerful actions you can do to intervene in a stormy world is to stand up and show your soul. Soul on deck shines like gold in dark times. The light of the soul throws sparks, can send up flares, builds signal fires, causes proper matters to catch fire. To display the lantern of soul in shadowy times like these – to be fierce and to show mercy toward others, both, are acts of immense bravery and greatest necessity. Struggling souls catch light from other souls who are fully lit and willing to show it. If you would help to calm the tumult, this is one of the strongest things you can do.
