Inspire. Nourish. These are my words for 2019. My Rhythm Renewal Community has engaged in this practice for well over a decade and this practice has served and supported me in remembering throughout the ebbs and flows of what a year brings what is important to me. What I value in myself and the world around me. What I believe I could offer in service that could in some small way be of benefit to the world. Something that can reflect the higher values of compassion and peace.
This also reminds me of the connection we are all held in. That Despite voices and policies that seek to devalue the inherent worth of beings, that all are important and valuable in this Creation. I want to enter this year even with the present evidence of fear and uncertainty with an open heart. With an open mind that has spaciousness enough to hold complexity when it comes to life.
This world often breaks my heart because I love life so much and am so grateful to be here. Again, despite evidence to the contrary, with violence, racism,greed and hunger for power often the loudest and most visible expressions of humanity, I wholeheartedly believe that Love is stronger than all these forces combined.
I want to enter this year with an open mind and an open heart, even when it is broken, because I believe so far in my 52 years, I have only scratched the bare surface of this Love. I want to have a curiosity, a beginners mind about this life, this Love. What I have learned in 52 years is that even me, with my flaws and faults which are many, Even I am capable of loving beyond measure. This love Both nourishes and inspires me to show up in hard places loving. To take care of myself and my family. To engage in my community so all beings can have access to wellness, live free and safe from harm and live in peace. I am deeply grateful to all of you amazing beings that have shared parts of your own path with me and I look forward to 2019 being a year of Nourishment and Inspiration!
