I Love You
I wanted to drop a note to all of my followers.
I do think of you, even though I’m not active regularly on tumblr.
I want to tell you that I love all of you. And I want you to know that your lives matter.
There have been sad things happening. We lost another public figure to suicide. This made me very sad and made me question how these things happen. I have no answers. I have only love to give.
Please, if you’re feeling suicidal believe me when I say you are not a burden. You will never be a burden if you ask for help. Never.
I am sad about the death of Michael Brown. I am sad about how a tailings pond was breached and emptied into a river in BC, killing flora and fauna. I am sad that a Robin Williams decided to end his life.
I’m sad that people I know are going through a grieving process for loved ones that have, and are about to depart this world. I’m sad that I can’t be there physically to offer moral support and a shoulder to lean on. I wish I could be there to wipe your tears and make you tea. Know that.
There is much to be sad about in this world. Without sadness, we would not know what joy is. Contrast is needed. And I believe that with every sad event, a joyful one is around a corner. A miracle, a synchronicity, an ah-ha moment is impending. Sometimes you don’t have to wait, it’s there amongst the sadness, anger, and trauma. It’s there. Just be still and silent and you will see it and feel it.
I inhale blessings and exhale gratitude. That is my dharma.
Please take care of yourselves. Make the time and commitment to feeding yourself nourishing food, sleeping well, spending time out of doors and spending time with loved ones. You’re worth it.
