Quiet light filters into evening hymn. The house hums a quiet tune. Our hearts are full this week. We were quaked in our little world. We shook. Did you feel us shaking?
In my business world, I attend workshops and conferences that say everything we do is marketing, even our personal lives. Everything has a call to action. Maybe that is why I have yet to make true money off my art and writing. My call to action is always to share — to share my muse, to share my gratitude, to share just a glimmer of hope and light in an all too cruel and divided world.
I believe we should do good, and are good in our hearts, it matters. This has a ripple effect. Like each tiny prayer, each tiny fold blends into a bigger cause, a bigger heart. I believe that bigger heart is God. I heard Oprah refer to a quote by a writer she admired when she was speaking about “Super Soul Sunday” — “God is law.” Oprah liked that. I like her. She stands for good. She elaborated a bit about the quote, “God is law,” saying she got goosebumps when she read that. She went on to illustrate the quote in her confident and cool voice how God is law in all the things we understand and don’t understand. Physics, science, art, humanity, our hearts.
Oprah has known pain too. “The wound is where the light enters you.” Rumi said that almost a thousand years ago. He also said “To Love is to reach God.”
This week has opened my heart even more to God as my husband was in a car accident that he thankfully was able to walk away from, but any car accident you are able to walk away from is a good one.
Light enters our home in whispers. She sings delightfully so at dusk when afternoon overlaps with the day and she put on her night shawl, draping over her long. I choose light and love. It casts such a beautiful shadow.
My call to action for you in this post is to love. Hug your spouse and child(ren), call a friend, smile at a stranger, or do a small gesture that is kind to yourself. The world needs more love and light.
