Wishing to DO something...to FIX something...to CHANGE the ending of this story that can never be changed.
In the aftermath of events such as this one here in Boston - it sometimes feels as if everyone is screaming to be heard. Screaming for answers. Screaming for justice. Screaming for what is so very wrong in this world.
I find myself returning to silence. To center. To home. To that place that is quiet inside. I find myself wondering if the answers are as simple and easy as that. To look inwards. To find a comfortable seat in this discomfort. To simply feel. The pain and the pleasure. The sadness and the joy. The bitter and the sweet. To breathe. To be.
Yes - I'm wishing to DO and to FIX and to CHANGE all of the things that I cannot. But what I can do....what I will do...what I'm hoping and wishing and willing that others might too - is to stop...if just for a moment. To look long enough inwards for just long enough to really see. To take that one small step. To own it...and take responsibility for our thoughts...our actions...our behaviors.. To be that change that the world so desperately needs.
