Be the Change You Want to See
As we, one nation, work to come together and move forward after a difficult political battle, I am grasping for guidance in what comes next. I see and hear about the polarization, the fears, the wounding in families, the separation that has blanketed our citizens. And on some level, it feels overwhelming and useless for me, as one being, to make a difference in what appears to be this huge abyss.
It has been said that the outside world is but a reflection of our inner world. And to that end, it is scary. What are we to do with this chaos, this lack of understanding towards each other, this pain that some carry and others disregard? How do we move forward to make a difference in this process?
