Day of Resilience
“I do not want you to go through life with a heavy weight on your shoulders, bowed down by the cares of the world. I need you free…”
- Eileen Caddy
This morning as I read this quote from Eileen’s June 1st entry in her book “Doors Opening Within’ I felt such a wave of both grief AND optimism. Each day after taking in her daily meditation, I go to my gratitude journal and write my own prayer/affirmation for that day. This, most certainly in response to what our country/world is now experiencing, is what came out:

Help me trust that even in the darkest of days,
the strength and resilience of LOVE
are available to me and everyone.
I look to the masters who have succeeded
in living this Truth:
Jesus, Gandhi, the Dalai Lama, Thich Nhat Hanh…
each of these leaders though experiencing the very throes of adversity,
were able to maintain a steady, open Heart.
(It’s within each and every one of us.)
- It’s a day of RESILIENCE.
And so my prayer for each and every one of us is that we dig deep, trust, and be there for each other. Yes, despite the pandemic. Despite the rioting. As Barefoot would say, “It’s OK, It’s OK, It’s OK. (Because it is.) But it requires the courage of an open, steady Heart.
Love, Blessings & Namasté
