Power of Love
The past few years have seen a big increase in the impact of world conflict on our lives, often accompanied by a sense of anger, frustration, or powerlessness. We may try to protect ourselves by blaming, ignoring the latest news, or just numbing out. But emotional separation has its own impact. We can't choose rage, resentment, or numbness in relation to the world without limiting our ability to experience forgiveness, openness, and compassion in our own personal lives.
Conversely, if we choose to honor our humanity, accept our fear, and still feel our feelings about what we are witnessing, we learn something that can't be learned any other way: the extraordinary power of love to transform suffering and deliver us to a new level of wisdom, clarity, and understanding of life.
