A thank you to Mel, Rachel, Milena and others who joined in less publicly after my last post.
Passion is a double-edged sword I suppose and it simply doesn't matter what the objective rights and wrongs are of something...people will change when and if they are ready. Most will not.
I'm returning to lessons and guidance in how to let go of my desire to control how people react to truth (and yes I believe some truths are universal). I am conflicted myself on some issues (other than the eating animals one) and it's true, when I feel I'm ready to shed another layer of illusion, I look for those who speak the truth from their hearts, I listen, and I learn. If I really want to be of service, that's what I need to do. And remember where I came from. Remember how long it has taken me to get here despite being in full possession of more facts than most. How much further I have to go.
I do believe in the power of what some call prayer although I see it more as a meditative co-creative place that, with practice, we can access. I need to spend more time in that practice, and that of being a loving presence in my own life space.
