Everywhere around the world people are suffering in so many ways. They are challenged by what seems to be their worst nightmare come true. We can never fully understand why these kinds of things happen to people, but because we each have our own agonizing challenges in life, we can send love, wish peace, hope for healing, and as I usually do, dispatch a squadron of angels.
Our awareness of the universal nature of human suffering is what keeps us human ourselves. If we lose this we lose our heart, the precious and vulnerable core of our human energy field.
Some people shy away from looking at the suffering of others, fearful that their attention on it might, in some magical way, bring it into their own life. Pushing awareness away out of fear closes us off from the very best in us. That human heart I mentioned has an energy field 5000 times greater than that of the human brain. Which will you permit to shape your awareness and your actions?
Stand in your pain as you witness another’s suffering. Own your vulnerability. Allow your own tears. And do for them what you would want done for you in similar circumstances. There is no lack of opportunity to practice this Golden Rule in the world, now or ever.
And if you have ever judged another for their suffering, thinking perhaps that they brought it on themselves, or they deserved it…please catch yourself…we don’t know anyone’s entire back story. We are in no position to pass judgement. Err on the side of love, please, for your own sake.
Be human. Be compassion. Be love.
As always, I hope you SPARKLE!
