We are aching. We are groaning. We are experiencing suffering at many levels and in many ways. There is no denying that we are in a crisis. We have lost connection with the most important part of our source and essence. That most important part is the love and compassion that we all so much ache for. We want to see change and we want to see transformation through some kind of redemption. We want to see goodness overcome and the light shine in and through us. Deep down, we know there is more that unites us than divides us. Our most profound calling as individuals and collectively is pulling and tugging at us. We want to be whole. We want to be loved. We want to love others. We want to unite with our brothers and sisters across barriers, boundaries and divisions.
We ask how this can happen? How can we be agents of change?
It begins in our individual hearts. Let us slow down and look within. Seek truth and seek unity within our individual selves. Let us hold the tension of being broken and mended at once. Let us see the darkness within ourselves and admit to it so that we can be transformed and healed by love. Light shines in the darkness and the darkness does not overcome it.
As we do the work for our individual selves and take responsibility for our own walk and relationship with our Creator, we begin to heal in body, mind and spirit. We realize that our source is love, our essence is love and our purpose is love and compassion for ourselves and others.
One day I was in prayer and meditation and sensed the words “Crisis Precedes Transformation”. I quickly wrote them down to start thinking about this. Crisis can precede a radical transformation of a love revolution of compassion and wholeness. But we need to start in our individual hearts. God yearns to reveal love and compassion to each and every one of us. May we open our hearts and minds to receive and be renewed by our deepest truth.
