Sending Love Wherever It Is Needed
We all have those days. The days when nothing is seeming to go the way we planned. That day when every mistake you made in the past year, shows up on your desk within 5 minutes of your sitting down. Those days when you feel that the very idea of being able to control anything in your life, is life’s great joke on you.
Life has many ways of testing a person’s will, either by having nothing happen at all, or by having everything happen at once.
– Paulo Coelho
If we could see what was being hidden in each of our lives, I think that we would be more loving to each other. There is a video that was done, where little thought bubbles come up as the camera goes down the halls and elevators in a hospital. Someone is saying goodbye to their dying father. One man was just told the tumor was benign, while another was told he has cancer. An elderly woman with oxygen has been waiting for a heart transplant for 69 days. An exhausted nurse is at the end of a 12 hour shift. “
Could a greater miracle take place, than for us to look through each other’s eyes for an instant?
– Henry David Thoreau
Those are the days when we need someone to hug us and say, “You are Good Enough. You are Capable of Handling this. You are Important. You are more than Worthy. You are LOVED. You are NOT ALONE.” These are the days that we need all of the light and love that the world can send us. What we have to remember, is that at this very moment, someone in the world is either sending us that love, or is in need of us to send that love.
May love and light always find you, and loneliness and unhappiness always be a stranger.
– Angie K.K.
It is when we are living our life from the place of passion and purpose, that we shine the brightest. Knowing that our deepest dreams can be reached. It is when we take that deep breath, and just let the emotions flow out of us, that we can reset ourselves. It is hard to be loving and empathetic when we are in survival mode. We need to give ourselves the oxygen mask, reset out emotions and then help others. Find that spark inside of us ourselves, and let it shine first for us. Then shine it for others to help them find theirs.
You have to find what sparks a light in you, so that you in your own way can illuminate the world.
Today driving into work, I was playing a CD with healing sounds. A friend of mine knew that I have been having some health issues, and thought it might help. So I purchased it and have been playing it all week. I realized that every area in my life right now is undergoing some issues. Work layoffs coming again; working on finding answers for my health issues; one of my grandsons is having a very hard time with injustice in his life, and I have been feeling a little stressed out about how everything is in a negative place right now. But writing these posts and finding the “good news” articles and videos is what keeps my feet walking down my path of transformation. It is keeping me sane. It is why I write, and why I want to share what I find with all of the other LemonadeMakers out there.
Remember . . . the entrance to the sanctuary is within you.
Then you add in everything negative happening with politics, the injustices on both sides of the police and Black Lives Matter; the terrorists attacks; the workplace and school shootings, countries at war within their own borders, or threatening to make war on other countries – it can all feel overwhelming. None of these problems have easy solutions. I think that we are all being called by the Divine to wake up. To be the love and light that the world needs to heal. We all need to heal in some way. The best way I know how to show my own love and light is right here on this page. Encourage myself and others, by shining the light on the good that happens in our world everyday. To put my hand out to each of you, and together as we join hand in hand, to shine out our love and light.
Spread love everywhere you go. Let no one ever come to you with leaving happier.
– Mother Teresa
A Courageous Conversation?Are you brave enough to speak out loud the conversations that you have inside of yourself late at night when you are all alone?
- How do we have a courageous conversation about the tragedy’s we have faced in our lives? Some things just seem too devastating to turn from a negative to a positive experience.
- How can we be honest with ourselves and others, around such things as overcoming addictions or similar problems?
- What if we are trying to make positive changes in our lives, and we have “no one” in our lives to support us in making a life changing transformation?
