fuel the heart of the world runs on

I had this weird, crazy dream the other night that woke me up with a malevolent energy.

In that in between world I could feel the pull to disturbing worlds. It took a conscious effort to shift into remembering another world, one in which people are sincere, authentic, committed to a path of connection and goodness.

I remembered a conversation I had with someone last night who has been in a period of suffering. As he touched the pain, tears welled and rolled from his eyes, and I could feel my viscera ease inside. Not because of the pain but because of the authentic reality that life is hard at times.

Sometimes, for some people, life is hard for longer times.

I remembered the coaching call I had with people in the Becoming Safely Embodied course, the conversations deep, powerful, true.

And how important those kinds of conversations and connections are. They are the fuel the heart of the world runs on.

People’s faces and names came to me. I sat with the courage and commitment it takes for them to live their daily lives. I was – and am – inspired. It reinforces my commitment to live a life of goodness.

Thank you for being one of those people.

Thank you for being who you are, for the every day moments where you do the best you can, where you try to do the most you can even when it doesn’t feel like much.

I’m grateful that you’re there in the world, that together we’re holding space for kindness, goodness, connection.

May your world be easier knowing we are holding space for you.

May your heart be eased held in the world we are creating together.

May your life reflect back to you the gift that you are to all of us.

Sending goodness,

    ,As I read this post: I myself was feeling the pull to disturbing worlds. It’s actually why I came once again, to this website.

    One of the many tools I have received from your work to help keep me reaching, stepping forward. It’s been quite some time since I felt the pull soo strong.

    Then, there in the second paragraph: you say, ” it took a conscious effort to remember to shift to another world where people are sincere, authentic, committed to…. as you continued… it was coming back. I needed to remember the conscious effort, which would take being only in the moment. The here and now. The fact of the moment. Facts not feeling, etc.

    Like you in your moment, I was again able to sit, breath with courage and commitment for what is good, kind and fearless.( even though sometimes, it takes remembering to shift into conscious effort to get to that place. The pull is there with less tension and less power behind it. A work in process! Thank you.
