This, Too, Shall Pass

We’re all feeling it – the edginess or uneasiness from the unsettled election.  Many of us thought that once Biden was elected, the country would calm down.  With the outcome still officially in doubt, this low-level anxiety is slowly being ratcheted up – and we don’t like it.  We want it to go away!  But we’re powerless to do anything, but wait.  Since that’s the current situation, why not see this uneasiness as a wake-up call?  We’re being roused out of our complacency and invited to engage with life in a different way.   We could use this energy of extreme discomfort to make peace with the uncertainty of life AND to come home to ourselves as told in the story of the Prodigal Son.  Woo-hoo!  It’s going to be quite a ride!  Buckle up!

Oneness, not Sameness: Using Differences to Know Unity

In Unity, we have a saying:  “It comes up to be healed.”  The on-going divisiveness in our nation, brought to a head by the as-yet-undecided election, is a good place to apply that saying.  What healing might take place if we allowed the apparent “illness of division” to push us into the awakened state in which there is no division, only Unity?
