In amongst all the noise and fear and worry of this challenging time .. I recommend looking for the words and the messages that support you to be the very best version of yourself. Here are a few of the kind, hopeful and wise messages that rocked me this week..

“Tonight, you may be sorrowful or silent, empty or alone, but you have the moon, and you have your breath, and in inhaling the wonder of these alone, you might find yourself wrapped in the soft shawl of relief that this moment is beautiful, and more than worthy of perfect love.”

by Victoria Erickson, Writer

“And the people stayed home. And read books, and listened, and rested, and exercised, and made art, and played games, and learned new ways of being, and were still. And listened more deeply. Some meditated, some prayed, some danced. Some met their shadows. And the people began to think differently.

“And the people healed. And, in the absence of people living in ignorant, dangerous, mindless, and heartless ways, the earth began to heal. And when the danger passed, and the people joined together again, they grieve their losses, and made new choices, and dreamed new images, and created new ways to live and heal the earth fully, as they had been healed”

“I’ve been thinking of this virus as an invading force, an outside threat, and praying for the threat to pass. But there is no threat from outside. I am the threat, and I have to contain it. This is my responsibility, my duty as a human being among human beings. I alone can either spread it or stop it. The answer is in my hands. I can do this.”
