This past weekend was four days of Loving. There were many people, and the atmosphere we created together was incredibly full of care, respect, joy, love and peace.
Today is Wednesday. I’ve only been back in town two days and already the chaos which people are spreading has interrupted my ‘glow’.
I know what to do to get it back … by creating my gear for Corn Planting.
If I begin to prepare for the Elder Holiday celebration coming up, then my mind will be focused on them, and the giving I will share.
In this way, I can rest in the sweet memories of yesterday, looking forward to making new memories in the future, and fully enjoying the process of getting there.
The internet is useful … to a point.
I appreciate being connected to my chosen family, having opportunity to get together during the times ‘in-between’.
I know that there are many who still need the internet to get informed of what is going on. Learning about how bad it really got, and continues to do.
Only in learning of it can they then choose to ‘turn it off’.
One really does need to get sick and tired of the chaos before they can begin to create peace. Let us hope this happens for people soon, and we can begin working together to change the scenario of the past many decades.
May Love prevail over chaos. May Peace fill all hearts. May people understand their true value does not come from anything, but self acceptance, love and care. When this happens, it will be easy to see themselves in others. Then we can become brothers and sisters, in a real and lasting way.
Giving up anger, resentment, the sense of being victim … embracing our own inner truth, creating our ‘grateful for’ list, and doing the work of forgiveness … love will begin to glow, an ember blown into raging flames.
But these flames will not burn.
