February 2--Keep It Close

The love of the family, the love of the person can heal. It heals the scars left by a larger society. A massive, powerful society.  --Maya Angelou

    There has been much scar creation in our massive, powerful society lately. The stress of the pandemic, both in terms of varied illness and vastly limited activity, has left a huge scar on our world. The economic repercussions have been devastating to many. Political divisiveness has been a source of violence and hatred, and has put the brakes on progress, if not actually pulling us backwards. Racism is alive and well. Our abuse of Mother Earth has reached epic proportions. 
    I don't feel capable of solving any of those gigantic problems, and most likely, you don't either. We can, however, be a loving presence in our family. Healing the wounds in individual families is vital to creating a larger society of peace and well-being. It is individuals, acting in love, right where we are, doing the next kind and helpful thing, that will move our larger society along a healing path. We must hold tight to the knowing that every person acting in love matters greatly to the whole. Each of us can be a healer.

Beauty heals. (Beauty=Love)
