Yes, it’s been awhile. I needed (and still do, I think) a hiatus from writing. Needed a break because forced words are empty words. I will get back to writing more consistently as I get myself centered as to where I want all this to go. But, for now, I have been spending a lot of time in the silence.
Space. Time to observe the world. Time to reflect on what my eyes see, my ears hear and, most importantly, my heart is telling me. In the space created by the silence, I sit and find peace. I sit and recognize that Spirit is speaking softly to my soul. Telling me to continue to do this work. Continue to be the vessel that says stay soft, stays focused on love, calling it out when it is not being shown.
Oh, how I find I still have much to learn about this human realm! How does it fit into the scope of the Universal Source? So much of the world appears to be in turmoil. Fear seems to be rippling through the air and the waters. But so is love! So much stronger is the light than the darkness. So much braver is the helping hand than the fist. Why can’t everyone see this? What is the purpose of all “this”?? My questions are sometimes painful for me to even ask because I know that, yes, there is so much more to learn. I return to the silence, clear the words from my mind and focus on what I know will bring me peace. I breathe in God and I breathe out love. I return to kindness. I return to love.
“Love is what we were born with. Fear is what we have learned here. The spiritual journey is the relinquishment—or unlearning—of fear and the acceptance of love back into our hearts. Love is the essential existential fact. It is our ultimate reality and our purpose on earth. To be consciously aware of it, to experience love in ourselves and others, is the meaning of life.” Marianne Williamson, A Return to Love
Darkness cannot survive in a world where the words of love are spoken. This is the work I will continue to do.
My prayer is that you will guided to do the same.
From my heart to yours, Diane
