Huge! Hope has been a huge gift to me. My daughter has been giving me hope her whole life. Friends, books, workshops, speakers, churches, art classes-projects-processes, NATURE, scenery, Drives (guilty pleasure – one of many). Many things have given me hope over the years. Now my son-in-law and granddaughter, the cohousing community in BC I get to spend time at, my little studio in Sandpoint, my cats, my LIFE give me great hope.
Hope is the gift I’d like to give to you today! One thing I know for sure – thanks Oprah – is that LIFE IS GETTING BETTER EVERY DAY! Despite the media – which I stay as far away from as possible – avoiding even Yahoo on the way into some of my emails – My Life and the Life of most of the people I know is getting better every day. In measurable ways! More connection to other people, more willingness to step out a bit and meet folks, more bravery to have a little fun.
Many years ago I read a book by Willis Harman “Global Mind Change.” First published in 1988, it was the first time I ever read that a change of consciousness had the potential, in fact it was the only potential that could really change the world. It was the first book that articulated for me the limit that science has to solving all the problems – especially those caused (aren’t they all) by human emotions. Just being human.
Twenty seven years later and OMG Willis would be So Thrilled with “The More Beautiful World Our Hearts Know is Possible” by Charles Eisenstein. He takes the expansion of human consciousness and heart and weaves them with great kindness into a story that we can believe in. The story has many paradoxes, isn’t painted out in detail, has lots of potential for co-creation. The disasters, grief and challenges of planet Earth and her peoples are not ignored. In fact they are everywhere. But the how and what to do and how to be to make it all better; to know it is already all better, are in the book also.
TRUST that there is a loving universe behind the holographic chaos (my words not his) and have great HOPE that every day in every way – it is all Beautiful.
