You see we all do our part. Our parts are all different. If we do our part, we move energy. We make the ripples of change that build and build. We become the change.
You don't know your part? You don't know how to find your part? Sit first. Take it all in.
Move away from the news and media. Move into the energy of creation. Stop reading and taking in what others are telling you. Sit and Listen to yourself. Ask - what is it that I can do? How do I make a difference?
Let's move our breath, and move the energy. Do it your way. Just find a way to contribute. Share information in a strong, clear and healthy ways. Give your gifts of love, and action. Funnel your passions into change. Life your life with meaning, and live it fully. Know what you're doing with it.
Just take a small step. Any step. It doesn't even have to be the right step. Just a step which changes the energy, and gives you more information. Move into the actions of support. Step into clarity of purpose. Release the energy in you, and around you.
Be a strong human being for yourself. In right action, right alignment. Be a strong human being for your family. In right action, right alignment. Be a strong human being for your community. In right action, right alignment.
Be led to where your soul meets the world. And then, give it. Give it all.
“One of the most calming and powerful actions you can do to intervene in a stormy world is to stand up and show your soul. Soul on deck shines like gold in dark times.” Clarissa Pinkola Estes
