Only Kindness Matters

Happy Thanksgiving Beautiful Light Tribe,

I woke up this morning with a song in my head ~ it was an old Jewel song I haven’t heard in a long time called Hands. All day today I have felt this tenderness within and the refrain over and over again, Only Kindness Matters. We live in a world greatly challenged on many levels at this time ~ some of the stress is very near like the wildfires creating so much destruction in the mountains where I live ~ sometimes the troubles seem far removed from us as we go about our daily lives. Near or far, great or small, this constant barrage of strife and struggle can make it easy to forget what is truly important. Hence, this song ~ reminding us to be kind and practice compassion whenever and however we can. Only Kindness Matters. Life may not be perfect ~ sometimes full and blessed and flowing with ease, other times it can seem you just can’t catch a break. And yet, it is Life – and we always have each other, the capacity to give and receive, to reach out and to accept help in equal measure.

Whether you live in the US or not, you are in my heart and prayers this Thanksgiving ~ I want to extend my deepest gratitude for all your love and support over the years. It is a great gift and blessing to be able to share such intimate and genuine space with each of you ~ you are my family. What I know for sure is that the world needs us to be strong, to stand tall, to see what is right and find the goodness in each person and every moment that we can. Light a candle if you will for our world with all its challenges this Thanksgiving ~ focus your intent on that single flame as a reminder of the power of light to transform darkness ~ to illumine possibilities, solutions and hope! Albert Einstein once said, “Remember your humanity and forget rest.” 🙂 Everything is going to be all right, as long as we remember we have one another, ALL IS WELL.

With LOVE and Gratitude to the Light Tribe ~ my New Human Family, Happy Thanksgiving!!

If I could tell the world just one thing
It would be that we’re all ok
And not to worry because worry is wasteful
And useless in times like these
I will not be made useless
I won’t be idled with despair
I will gather myself around my faith
For light does the darkness most fear
My hands are small, I know,
But they’re not yours they are my own
But they’re not yours they are my own
And I am never broken
Poverty stole your golden shoes
But it didn’t steal your laughter
And heartache came to visit me
But i knew it wasn’t ever after
We will fight, not out of spite
For someone must stand up for what’s right
Cause where there’s a man who has no voice
There ours shall go singing
My hands are small, I know,
But they’re not yours they are my own
But they’re…

    Once again my heart was in synchronicity with yours. This song resurrected in my consciousness and the mantra of “in the end, only kindness matters” has been playing in my head for the last few weeks.????????

      The world is at once, so vast and such a mystery and yet, so small and intimate, reminding us of the Unity and love we share. Gratitude for sharing Susan ~ may the circle be unbroken. ????

    And kindness is such an easy remedy to administer. A simple smile can produce such a radical change in someone else.
