We must make this the time of the heart
So much in our world at this time calls on us to be bold, to be courageous, to be compassionate, to use discernment. We are confronted, at every turn, with the challenges of a pandemic and the need to social distance at the heart of which is not just caring for ourselves but those around us too.
We are reminded of the ongoing struggle towards true equality, diversity and inclusion of all in our world, of the need to keep striving to create a world of real sisterhood and brotherhood that acknowledges our essential interdependence, and to seek out and confront our own biases.
We are bombarded by information and by news towards which we must exercise deep thoughtfulness to ensure we are sifting fact from conjecture and not contributing to another pandemic of fake news and damaging thoughtforms.
Poised, as we are, on the threshold of seismic change occasioned by what can feel like multiple pandemics, there has never been a more vital need to connect deeply with and live through our heart, accessing its qualities of love, compassion, kindness, courage, discernment.
As we deepen our heartfulness and open to the wondrous diversity of life we move into seeing one humanity, one planet, the unity of all things with greater clarity.
As we begin to see and listen through our heart deeper meaning emerges from what may have made little sense before. We can appreciate multiple perspectives and begin to synthesise our own higher understanding.
And when we speak through the heart our words are imbued with love, connecting more powerfully to all members of our human family and contributing to a climate in which a better world for all can grow.
