Serving the Betterment of Spirit.
There’s a lot going on in the world today. On a political level, our nation is divided as we struggle amidst the impassioned rhetoric of each opposing party.
Worse yet, we are becoming further isolated from our friends and family abroad, a loftier fear replacing our need to be ‘as one’.
Meanwhile, ‘self’ secures the shadow where the seeds of compassion once grew.
Abraded by our present surroundings, we become slightly less tolerant. Conditions which once evoked empathy, now provoke reaction.
And, where does that leave us, my friends? Have we made better, so we love deeper – or, have we simply fallen deeper into the well?
Likewise, how much of our reaction is based in truth rather than what we anticipate?
A dear friend once commented that we react to that which we fear. Instinctively we prepare for ‘battle’, drawing inward as we ‘bare our teeth.’
And in this polarized ‘fight to the finish’ we lose what makes us human: faith in that which stands higher still, and a compassion unwilling to concede to such influences.
Coming together is never a loss, my loves – rather, each and every action serves the betterment of spirit.
A little something to consider, my friends ~
