Hello. How are you in your present moment? Me? There are so many things I could say, but really I’m grateful. Within the past couple of months people I care about have been going through some really rough stuff like divorce, the sickness of family and friends and the deaths of family and friends. It feels like we are all just going through some serious shit right now and it’s hard but like I told my sweet friend last night, “I know it’s hard but it won’t always be this way.” This is something life has taught me. This is something losing our sweet dog Sammy taught me. When hard times come, they only last as long as you allow them to and time is really the best healer. The more of it that passes between you and what your going through, the less it hurts. The pain won’t completely go away. You won’t forget the pain, but it will hurt less.
I am not a materially rich person but in terms of meaningful wealth, there is no earthly equivalent. Sometimes I forget, sometimes I whine, complain, I wallow, bitch and moan about trivial and frivolous things….most of which I cannot change. Time passes, things get better.
These moments are so small in the scheme of all the moments. As I often hear in my mind when I manage to get it quiet, “Let everything pass through. Everything passes through. Let the images and emotion that come into your mind just through.”
This morning I was laying in bed worrying about my friends and what they are going to do today and their fur kids. I’ve been very sad and anxious for them. In my head I asked “Are you there?” and the answer I heard was, “I’m always here.” Who is this loving, comforting voice I am having a telepathic conversation with? Is it God? Is that just my mind manufacturing an answer of comfort for me? Whatever the answer, that voice helped me get out of bed this morning to come and write this!
We are not abandoned, no matter how it may seem. No matter how many negative headlines splash in front of our eyes, how many tragedies real or manufactured are put before or placed on us – we are not alone. All you have to do is ask to be reassured.
