GRACE TO HOLD US ALL
Please be kind. Please be gentle with yourself, and with the people around you. Please remember to breathe evenly when you feel yourself breathless, and to look at the sky when you feel groundless, and to look into the eyes of the people around you when you feel alone, and to reach for the hand of someone you trust when you feel rootless.
These are hard days, challenging days, days that feel fraught with anxiety and uncertainty for many of us, and the flip side of dread is expectation and possibility. Hope makes everything possible, even being held when we are afraid, and loved when we are lost and found when we feel alone. This is only one moment in the story of all of our lives, and albeit it is a critical and foretelling moment, but it is only one moment of many, and moments are changed by the hope and love that we bring to them. I am conjuring wild hope and relentless grace and boundles love to hold you and yours and all of us in this moment and the next ones that follow. May we all be held in grace in the unfurling of these next days, and may we remember how powerful both our love and our hope are when we anchor them and embody them and offer them to ourselves and everyone around us.
ALL PEACE TO EACH ONE OF YOU. DORA
