It is easy to love and lOve during the calm and it is easy to express joy and jOy in the good times. But can you receive?
Moreover, are you able to stay the path of lOve during those crazy, intense moments when your path descends, the colour fades and the light dims?
Is the lOve within bright enough to continue to shine when the ground beneath your feet becomes uneven?
Can you still find your vOice to air what your heart feels, even when those feelings are un-sanitised, raw and deeply felt?
In a time when so many challenges are being faced concerning quality, fairness, purpose, belief and justice; as you move through this splintered world feeling that you are carrying values alien to those within your world, remember that you are never alone and that the pain you feel has purpose if you can accept it and in time look beyond it to what it is teaching you.
As your love transmutes to lOve, compassion metamorphoses into cOmpassion, and the grace of transfiguration heals your wOunds. What you are moving through will, in time, pass. But please speak up. Everyone descends, but also ascends. Everyone hurts and heals.
