Is the world so unloving? Sometimes it seems that way. From the news to personal interactions, sometimes things seem to tend towards negativity. And why shouldn’t they? There are so many imbalances in the world. Children starving, people unfairly incarcerated, environmental injustice, species dying – and that’s just to name a few. It can be overwhelming.
It was certainly overwhelming after my experience with God. I felt so lost after feeling all of that love and then seeing the world as it is. I wanted to get out of here. I was so desperate to leave that I was almost ready to die. I cried so much and felt so alone.
How could we have moved so far from love? This love is all around us – I felt it! Why do we turn away from it and squander it? Why do we mistreat each other? Is it because we forgot how much God loves us? Did we forget that were each created from love and hold that light within us?
It’s hard to remember to hold onto love when sometimes love seems so far away, but love is right here, within you. If you get quiet enough, you can feel it. You are a beautiful soul created from beautiful love – love that lights the cosmos. Find that spark and tend to it, let it grow and light your path, then share it with others.
