With Courage and Hope

"At first people refuse to believe that a strange thing can be done, then they begin to hope that it can be done, then they see that it can be done . then it is done and all the world wonders why it was not done centuries ago."

- Frances Hodgson Burnett
The Secret Garden, 1911

The world is filled with wondrous things and unbelievable beauty. It has always been so. The smallest change in awareness can free us from the tyranny of all of our past beliefs. Even the littlest change in consciousness can make everything new again.

Within each and every one of us exists a light so bright, a force so overwhelming; that most of us fear it. We turn away, cover our eyes; fearing its brightness. We flee from the knowledge of our essential greatness because we distrust our ability to control it. But we need not do so, for what exists inside is not wicked. What lies inside is simply and most probably the indwelling spirit of love.

We can look up, uncover our eyes, and try to comprehend what is right in front of us. We can open our minds and acknowledge our intrinsic nature. We can hope, and joyfully welcome the possibilities that lie ahead. We can believe that what is coming is good. We can try to understand that while change may be difficult, we are up to it.

Within each and every one of us exists indescribable power and strength, a light so bright, a heart so true that we can achieve great feats.

Now, let us go. Let us forge ahead into the future. Shoulders straight, light of heart, sure of step. Let's work together to create a new world!
