One of the most calming and powerful actions you can do to intervene in a stormy world is to stand up and show your soul.
Soul on deck shines like gold in dark times. The light of the soul throws sparks, can send up flares, builds signal fires, causes proper matters to catch fire. To display the lantern of soul in shadowy times like these — to be fierce and to show mercy toward others; both are acts of immense bravery and greatest necessity.
Struggling souls catch light from other souls who are fully lit and willing to show it. If you would help to calm the tumult, this is one of the strongest things you can do.
When a great ship is in harbor and moored, it is safe, there can be no doubt. But that is not what great ships are built for.
~ Clarissa Pinkola Estes
We live in dark times, but that doesn’t mean that we must be engulfed in darkness. I love these words from Clarissa Pinkola Estes, inspiring us to clear our own dark places from our personalities so that we may emerge into the world as lights to dispel the darkness. ❤️
