“In solitude there is healing. Speak to your soul. Listen to your heart. Sometimes in the absence of noise we find the answer.”
How I long for solitude and a quiet place. Somewhere I can go to rest and find some peace. It seems like my life has accelerated and everything is moving in warp speed. New York has gone through a major shift. What was once a bustling city full of art, culture and vitality is now somber and lost. Walking down the streets, you see massive homelessness, boarded up shops, and empty buildings. It is an eerie feeling that tugs at my soul to witness this change that happened in a blink of an eye. I have taken a huge step back. Iv’e retreated into my own womb because I am processing all these massive changes that humanity is going through. I managed to gracefully move through all the chaos unscathed until the last month. But being in the midst of all the depression that has taken so many spirits and lives has pulled at my heart strings.
The world is in a time of crisis. America, particularly is experiencing division and opposition like never before. This is an election year and it has been the most confusing, misinformed, heated, controversial and outright opinionated battle that seems to be separating all of us. I go into deep thought and think of how we came to this place. What happened to pull people apart? Were these feelings of anger,hatred resentment, and prejudice always lurking beneath the surface, just waiting to reveal itself? Did we become so complacent and numb to not want to step into the night and see our shadows?
I Find myself connecting with nature more and more. With all the troubles and confusion in the world right now, I invite you too, to hold the space and go within, where there is always a warm sunny place that will lift your spirits and bring peace to your heart. The empathy I have for humanity has flooded my soul with so much love. I have tears of sorrow and joy. I know if I can keep my heart open, even when it hurts, goodness will prevail.
