One of the most disabling circumstances for humanity is, it has been stripped of the capacity to trust. Many, if not all of us, have had our trust abused. At first we believe it’s a solitary situation, so we continue to wear our hearts on sleeve. Then, it happens again. Now naivety is dissolved, and it becomes harder to have faith in the goodness of people, yet we do, again, believe and hope with faith.
Heartbreak after heartbreak, damage untold … causes friendships to be rare, any type of relationship becomes most difficult to build. This circumstance causes anger, pain, despair even.
I look at women, on women’s day, and I see them opening to each other, even though trust is difficult, still they try. It seems many women have moved beyond the thought of another woman taking their man, or whatever. The courage shown and lived is extremely powerful.
Women have decided on a large scale that we need each other if we are to heal ourselves, and the damage in the world. This union of spirit is the only way out of this mess.
There are many men who stand by woman’s side not as an authority, but as a partner, friend, and co-creator of that which is good, blessing us, and the world with their wider vision.
Seeing young people stepping into adulthood with eyes wide open, strong, and only slightly damaged dna is exciting! They are showing grit and integrity which has been lacking for some time.
As I attempt to turn back my own dna damage, I continue to watch the scene, hope is growing once more, for the future.
