What if Hope isn’t something you “Do”
Rather it is alive within you, ever-present, always there,
Feeding you and sustaining you in ways
That you can’t begin to know?
But if you acknowledge the HOPE that is
If you invite it to reveal itself
In a way that helps you remember
It is good to be alive
No matter what the day brings,
It will lift you
Beyond your troubles
Beyond your circumstances
Beyond your cage
Where you can see
The beauty in this human journey
Joy and Pain
Doubt and Faith
Fear and Love.
Hope is innately wired in all humans, alive within us, sustaining us in ways that we simply cannot see as we are often caught in a concept of how it should be or should look. Freedom to be with this truth that Hope is, inviting it to reveal itself in a way that helps you remember it is good to be alive no matter what life brings will lift you beyond the cage of illusion and misperception, beyond the troubles that have grabbed a hold choking us off from this precious gift of life.
Believing good prevails, that good will certainly come when there is no reason to believe except an inner nudge won’t allow you to believe otherwise is Hope. It is revealed within us and through us ever so gently, ever so softly caressing our worries, our doubts, our fears away.
Living in Hope, we lift our Self and in this energy, we take others with us. When you think there’s nothing you can do, know there is a power in hope that may be invisible or so subtle that we don’t fully recognize or appreciate it; but trust this soul force that heals and elevates. It is magic like pulling a rabbit out of a top hat, unveiling the concealed.
The invitation this day is to let hope echo from the depths of you, connect with the energy of hope that is alive within you. Feel it. Live it. Be it. Pass on Hope as only you can in your own special way. And remember these poetic words from Helen Keller: No pessimist ever discovered the secrets of the stars, or sailed to an uncharted land, or opened a new heaven to the human spirit. Ahhhhhh…drink in the power of hope and let it open you to the truth.
