I’ve been thinking about the life events of this past few weeks. It is very easy to get caught up in the news feed on Facebook or CNN, or even the local news stations. There has been horror after horror and my heart breaks; in compassion and non-understanding. I can’t seem to get my head around some of the things that people are saying about the events.
This is the week that Orlando got hit very hard with tragedy. First last Saturday evening, Voice finalist Kristina Grimney was murdered as she was signing autographs, then mass murder at the club in Orlando, followed by the little boy being attacked by the alligator. All in one city, all in one 24 hour period.
What is this world coming to? What is even more disturbing to me than the events is the political scene around them, the statements that are being said and the judgements from all sides.
If we are One people, if we are truly One humanity – this has to stop.
So instead of questioning and talking about one more opinion about who or what or why, I’m choosing love.
I’ve been a spiritual teacher and ordained minister for over 16 years and what I believe is that we are One. There is One God/Spirit/Universe, One Creation and we are all part of it. When we hurt each other, we hurt ourselves. When we love, we begin to heal those parts of us that still operate in fear.
Choosing Love, does not mean that my heart doesn’t break, it does not mean that we won’t have any more events, but it does take a stand. I, for myself, choose to see only love. To think only Love. To be only Love. That doesn’t mean I’m sticking my head in the sand or I won’t have any conversation at all about what’s happening in the world, but it does mean, I stand in and for Love.
I see the possibility of Love overcoming all the hate and fear on the planet. I hold the possibility that Love brings light to the darkness, peace to those tormented and compassion to all of humanity. We are One, we are all the same, uniquely individualized expressions of the One God, Creation itself.
I take a stand for Love, will you join me?
Let’s link heart to heart and spread love throughout the globe and beyond. Let’s let our Love be like candle flames in the dark, coming together to bring light to all.
Choose Love. Come with me, be the one you are waiting for. Awaken to the Truth, that Love is the only answer, Love is the only way.
With my heart wide open, vulnerable, aching and stretched to it’s capacity, I still choose love and expand my heart even further. Will you join me?
