Hello out there!
So, this may come in the category of re-stating the obvious, but most change does not happen on the outside. It happens inside hearts and minds, and hopefully with intention, rather than as a result of inner chaos or submerged cellular race memory from the cave people. Ernest Holmes said, "what mind can conceive YOU can achieve." Well what he actually said is, "What MIND can conceive MAN can achieve,” but we realize that needs to be more inclusive. Right?
Even that shift in wording and consciousness is the result of many years of many people making difficult choices to bring forth challenging truths. Women hold up half the sky. Love that.
We are in the midst of a major shift in world consciousness. What has been a difficult moment, and near aggressive act of the U.S. on Syria has been averted in favor of diplomacy. This is a major shift. It is HUGE. It is the result of many actions and transformations. It is also the result of a smart move by the President to put the conversation into the lap of the people's representatives.
It is so easy to not notice things like this. Our nervous systems are amped up on caffeine and Fox news to react to CRISIS! But we need to become people who can discern more subtle shifts. It is in the subtle shifts that the major changes happen, one step at a time. Stay in prayer. See peace. It is possible in our lifetimes.
Sunday we will be treated to a solo dance piece by Ramon, an amazing man who has been a Principle dancer with major ballet companies. The piece is by the legendary choreographer Lulu Washington and the music by Phillip Glass. Please do not miss this if you are anywhere in the vicinity of 86th and Amsterdam at 2 pm.
We love to see your face.
