‘Within you is a place of love and grace.
It is a place without fear.
where there is no need to defend or prove.
no need to lie or hide.
From this place spring words of truth,
actions of courage,
and a life of love.
Wait patiently for the voices of fear in your mind
To cease their frantic call to action.
Become aware of what the next clear stop of love might be.’ The Tao Te Ching
Fear is our number one personal foe. It surfaces regularly to challenge our truths, our courage, our peace. Don’t be afraid to take action. We’re taught to be loving, gentle, caring, empathetic, kind. We are not necessarily taught to be warriors. Sometimes it is imperative to be a fighter, a soldier, a purveyor of the light of truth. It doesn’t take away from your humanity, but rather enhances your vibrancy, the moral fiber of integrity within you to stand your ground, and lead the charge.
Draw forth your personal warrior to slay the evil monsters within. Quiet the inner demons that lead down dark alleys. Be strong for yourself and others. We are all in this together.
Cosmic sunshine to you.
For my mother. Cancer surgery tomorrow.
