That's my little niece Lauren, who lives in the Cayman Islands. I have no reason for posting her picture except that her sweet joyful face fills me with a sense that there is yet goodness and innocence and light in the world. I've just pressed send on my manuscript, and am now listening to the Supreme Court confirmation hearings for nominee Amy Coney Barrett. I probably wouldn't be tuned in if I didn't have to write an update to the book that includes it, and hopefully also the outcome of an election in which progressives take back the White House, the Senate and the House.
Last night, I couldn't sleep. My brain was on fire with what ifs should the criminal fascist president win a second term. We all know it's possible, given the rampant perversion of a free and fair election that the Republicans are engaged in before our eyes. They can’t win in a fair fight, so they cheat and disenfranchise. Last night, thin on hope, I reached for my phone, and in the quiet after midnight, I found myself searching out thinkers of a spiritual bent who could interpret this present moment in the larger context of our human experience, our shared illusion of separateness, unless we happen to be among the souls currently incarnated here to be lightworkers, which I sometimes believe my own daughter surely is, and perhaps little Lauren, too. In my own darkness, I climbed all the way down into the rabbit hole of mediums and astrologers and angels and channelers, and finally climbed back out with this piece of a promise from Patricia Pearce:
“Despite how frightening our present circumstances appear, they are lending immense momentum to the quiet coup that is preparing the way for a new world to arise, a world that reflects the inviolable truth of Love.”
I'll take it.
Thank you for this generous post. Looking forward to reading the book you have worked so hard to finish. There is a beautiful hopeful timeless light emanating from your niece, Lauren. Thank you, my friend.ReplyDelete
Look at those beautiful bright eyes! That lifts our spirits for sure! Thank you! Peace!ReplyDelete
I hope so.ReplyDelete
And that beautiful little baby, OMG, she fills me with hope too.
I am already planning the victory party after the blue tsunami. I refuse to entertain the idea that they can steal this election too. But I fear more what comes after. If the evil orange prevails, there will be civil war. There are too many people who are being crushed by these criminals. If they lose, the hate groups will explode with violence. I don't think they will accept defeat easily.ReplyDelete
Please make it so!ReplyDelete
Lauren brought my heart back!
I hope Patricia Pearce is right. I'm worried all the time now, anxious and exhausted. Thank you for the hope.ReplyDelete
That baby is stunning! I throw the Iching regularly with questions related to my own relatively minuscule problems and the larger existential questions. The principle of synchronicity is immensely helpful.ReplyDelete
Peace. Something we could all use right now. Along with the light in that beautiful baby's eyes.ReplyDelete
Your niece is certainly a ray of light. She is beautiful.ReplyDelete
I hope- I do hope- that Patricia Pearce is correct.
And what a sense of lightness you must have, finishing that book. You're amazing, woman. I love you.
What a beautiful picture of Lauren! I am SO ready for this election to be over. It's the uncertainty that's so unsettling.ReplyDelete
You must feel GREAT to have that book submitted! Woo hoo!
I’ll take it too. What a beautiful expression on Lauren’s face! The next few weeks are going to be stressful. I’m not confident of reason and good prevailing. Congratulations on completing your manuscript!ReplyDelete
What a beautiful little face! Here are the words that comfort me. Evil doesn't triumph. It doesn't. The Spanish flu ended, Hitler was crushed, the depression ended. Any bad event you can name? It ended. These awful days will end too as all awful days do.ReplyDelete
She is a beauty as all children are who have yet to learn the dark side of human beings. It's not just essential to dump Trump but to also take the Senate. I wish I had faith in that rabbit hole but it was promised with the Age of Aquarius and things only got worse. has it gotten bad enough to wake the sleeping giant? perhaps. the long lines and people waiting 8 - 10 hours to vote are encouraging.ReplyDelete
If, and I hope not, you have another night like that, Google pema chodron. There's a few minutes of video of her about 'what if you lose it completely' - I've watched it many a time.ReplyDelete
What a beautiful baby! Congratulations on completing the book.ReplyDelete
