“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…. Struggling souls catch light from other souls who are fully lit and willing to show it." -- Clarissa Pinkola Estes.
As war and division continues to take lives, hope, and security from thousands of people, I feel the challenge and the call to continue cultivate the unwavering inner sense of balance, stability, and resilience. When the world is shaking, we can find internal anchors to stay stable. This is not an easy practice and one I am coming back to every day, moment by moment.
At this time of uncertainty, anxiety, and turmoil, the best we all can do is not to feed fear but to cultivate light and healing for ourselves and those around us. That does not mean that we should hide our heads in the sand and be oblivious to what is going on in the world we live in. It is important to stay informed and at least attempt to understand the universal, social, political, and cultural forces that shape the external events.
These times call us to become aware of our unique strengths and gifts, and to cultivate and express them. What is your unique medicine that you can share with the world right now? What is your light that you can carry like Prometeus through these dark times?
However big is your light — a torch or a candle — protect that flame and share it with others. Don’t undermine your impact. We are all interwoven in a unique design of this life together and we all can strive to make this world a better place in our own unique way.
What is your medicine? What is your light? Feel free to share with me. I would love to hear from you! ☀️☀️☀️
