I’d like to suggest that if you can’t sleep some nights because you’re in pain about the state of the world, or if you have to pull in whilst driving somewhere to let the tears out because you’re broken hearted about everything that’s happening, or if you’re agonising over how to live in the world in a way that makes you part of the solution and not part of the problem, or if you just want to scream some days because you can’t understand how anyone can pretend like everything’s fine, or if getting out of bed is sometimes difficult because you don’t know how to be here, or if you simply can’t make sense of anything whatsoever…
You are not crazy!
These are natural and valid responses to the world we find ourselves in. Does that mean you don’t also experience joy, beauty, peace? Not at all. It means your eyes and heart are open. And you care.
And! No one has the answer. No one knows how to solve the mess we’ve created. There is no one plan we can all follow to make everything better. There isn’t anyone out there who can tell us the way. No one who can tell us how to survive and thrive in the world we find ourselves in.
But! We do have tools we can use. We might not have a map but we do have a compass and that’s something. We have our hearts, our intuition, our guts. These things are wise. These things can help us find our way when all is dark. These things can help us take steps to creating a more beautiful world.
Trust whatever comes to you through these channels. There is something in you that knows the way.
Love and courage,
