So Much Brighter Than It Appears …

… those dirty drops only scream a lot louder than the clean ones…

We are already moving toward the end of January, but when I scheduled this post, it was December 30. On that day, I received a wonderful gift from our dear blogger friend Parneet: his book, Prisons – The Six Secrets of Life. Even when he offered to send me a signed copy, I was touched by his kind gesture. Then when I held the book in my hands, I was touched again. I know I don’t post here as often as I did a few years ago. I wish I had more time, but “the bills” have to be paid too. That’s why I appreciate such loving gestures all the more and hope I can give back some of what I receive here.

But that was just one thing that made my eyes watery. In the last days of the year until today, I have received so much appreciative feedback in the comments here that words fail me. Even co-workers, clients, patients, and people I have only met for moments have managed to touch me deeply with gestures, kind actions, and words. There has hardly been a time in my life when I have been more aware of this and felt more embedded in the community called humanity. Today, as I write these lines, I am more aware than ever of how much love there is on this planet.

And this is where I would like to start with this post: It’s not that kindness that people do out of a sense of obligation, but rather out of a natural habit that comes from their inner sacred places. I bet that most of you are not even aware of the fact that you are making this world a little brighter and better in this way – because it happens naturally. A single smile that comes from the heart, a word accompanied by shining eyes, selfless spontaneous support, … that’s what holds this world together. That is what makes us believe in tomorrow. That is, what weighs so much heavier than what we hear on the news.

Love is everywhere and it is right beside you. It is right inside you. And the love you reflexively give for just a second has that power that heals the world. Let’s practice letting our loving self speak louder than our minds. Not because the mind is bad, but to train the mind how to be better and to get the mind to develop a habit that agrees with the heart.

I thank you – all of you – for every kind deed and word you have left for anyone.
It is the fairy dust that spreads the magic of love.
It is the spark that lights up a heart.
It is the input that someone needs to change their life for the better.

In Love and Light

Such a wonderful post dear Erika…
I like you do not spend as much time here in WP as I once did…. Life often projects us in different directions, but what connects us all is that bond we call love, our human spirit that shines forth as we uplift each other in small ways or large as we gather together within our communities as we unravel that which needs to be unpicked and healed..
I went on a short walk today, and it was wonderful just greeting and talking with perfect strangers.. Old folk that were starved of affection, just enjoying the sunshine wishing to share their love and light..
That dear Erika is what we Humans do the best… We need our communities, we need our togetherness, and we each in small ways, be it a smile, a gesture, a greeting or a nod hello…. All goes to creating a Unified world…
Much love my friend… As I too have just dipped in and out of wordpress these last few weeks..

Love Sue ❤

That’s right, and although I am more of an introvert, I started talking to people too. It is so connecting and warms the heart to see how they appreciate it. Thank you very much for being such a practicer of compassion uniting, dear Sue.
