We have heard of a number of unfortunate incidents lately, where many people have lost, or given up their lives, to make a heart-felt statement; a statement of combined sympathy and grief that creates togetherness and compassion rather than separation.
So instead of feeling anger and fear can we allow forgiveness and compassion to circulate throughout our hearts and minds, and then also throughout the world? Remember ‘darkness’ is only the absence of ‘light’. When there is Light there can be no darkness.
We are seeing many situations that can either separate, or instead combine us all within the healing gift of compassion. Let’s honour those who perhaps gave their lives to create an opportunity for much needed healing and compassion.
Is there a situation within your work or family environment where you have the choice to view it with anger and criticism, or with tolerance and forgiveness? Remember that it’s the small acts of forgiveness and compassion that will change, and are changing the world.
Perhaps we can be part of a positive ’Butterfly Effect’? The metaphor is that when a butterfly flaps its wings in one country a storm will appear in another country! So let’s flap our beautiful wings of love and compassion and create a positive ‘butterfly effect’ around the world.
