If I could share 500 words to inspire, this is the important wisdom I'd want to pass along to others...
Anything is possible, especially if we unite and stand together. Love is the key.
Remember being children? Remember when our imagination allowed us to believe that anything is possible? What happened?
See, over time, as we have experienced an often difficult and challenging world, one in which fear has become prominent, our mind and hearts have had a hard time staying open and optimistic. Our mind and hearts have started functioning in scarcity mode rather than sufficiency, believing that we were not enough or would not have enough, that perhaps, nothing would ever be enough.
These past few years, we have found ourselves in a time of great uncertainty and fear. Like children crying to be paid attention to, we have felt our cries ignored by the adults who act without thinking, possibly causing more harm than good. We have become divided—the rich and the poor; the republicans and democrats; the religious and the secular; male and female; young and old.
During this time, the belief that we were invincible, that anything was possible for us to handle, has dwindled. Stress that used to be manageable has become impossible. We have succumbed to Fear—fear for our future, for our jobs, for our homes, for our environment, for our health, for our children—and felt alone. With Fear has come the Fear Response, meaning more physical, mental and emotional breakdowns, less capability of handling stress, and a vicious cycle.
So I want for you to break the cycle.
I want for you to get back to believing that anything is possible.
I want for you to find hope and I want you to learn to collaborate. I want you to believe again, “yes, I can,” because we all have unique qualities that when put together, make a beautiful and empowered larger whole.
Know that the difference between fear and courage is only this belief—the belief that anything is possible.
So begin the collective shift out of fear towards love. Unite and connect to the love and power of others, within yourselves and of the larger universe. With love within you and among you, your heart and mind will open. You will discover that anything is possible when we unite.
Yes, we are facing great challenges and threats to our survival. Yes, we have made many mistakes. Yes, we are uncertain of the future. But yes, we have one another. Yes, we can face adversity with dignity, integrity and grace, together.
With love, we can.
