The Only Strength Powerful Enough

We live in a time of “harvest,” when we are facing the reflection of our intentions, wanted and unwanted. Another way of saying this is that our denials are coming to the surface. This is happening for individuals and for our various social groups: families, communities, nations and humanity as a whole.

In terms of healing, it is a good thing when toxins surface. It takes the wisdom of the soul to know this and to enter in to the detox/healing process.

The reflection, if one is strong enough to look, is of a human species wildly out of control, despoiling the environment and accepting destructive, cruel and brutal behaviors.

Which brings me to my point: For me, the only strength powerful enough to face this reflection and to work within this environment is the human soul. By soul I mean the high-vibrational essence of each one, living beyond the reach of fear. (This is not a religious concept; rather, it is religions who have played a role in co-opting this natural navigational system each one has.)

So, my prayer for each one is this: May you find, in your own way and in your own time, your way back to oneness with your soul. And, may you choose your way into a life that reflects your heart’s values — a life that depicts the strength of your soul, as a beacon to brother-sister souls.

May you be undaunted in our troubled times.
