Energy Musings. Here. Now.


Hope.  What is it?  Where does it come from?  How is it cultivated, nurtured, spread?  It is our most human, humane, response to fear, adversity, pain, hardship.  It is what is on the other side of skepticism, cynicism.  Hope is the truth behind the mask, the thing some of us are scared to even consider because  we are afraid of being ‘wrong’. Afraid that we will get ‘hurt’.  In our fear, we are unwilling to take risks, to be brave, to find Hope.  But Hope requires constant care and attention.  It needs to be rallied, to be voiced, to be watered and fed.

What are you “watering and feeding” in your life right now? As you review the past year and have the unique opportunity to let go into the darkness, look at the things you are nurturing consciously and unconscious through your thoughts, feelings and actions.  You must be honest here.  Its OK.  This is just between You and You.  No need to go announcing it to the world (unless you want to!).  Keep it private for now.  And in that privacy, allow yourself some extra space to accept what it is you really feel.  Do you spend your days angry and flustered?  Distracted?  Accusatory? Obsessed with all that is ‘wrong”?  On the flip side, do you find yourself blissed out?  Numb to the pain?  refusing to the see the darkness?

Neither of these extremes gives us a clear understanding of Hope. For Hope requires acceptance, understanding, truth, clarity and the willingness to believe in something as of yet unknown.  In short, it actually requires all of the above…. the anger, the bliss living together in an honest, real way.

Today, choose Hope.  Not the pie in the sky kind of Hope.  Not the Hope born of desperation because there are no other options.  But real, true, clear, honest… Hope.  Fill each breath, each step, each moment with it.

In this way, we pave a new path forward into 2017, one hope filled step at a time

peace all.

Energy Musings. Here. Now. Today! Its a new year, and the beginning of a new cycle.  Mindful of course, that we are continuously cycling so to consider starting and ending points is somewhat arbitrary
