The Angels remind us that to feel better on the outside we must also strive to feel better on the inside. Thoughts, feelings, and bodily sensations go hand in hand.
Beneath the deep and delicate darkness
The animal awakes,
Stirs from its restless slumber,
Rises from the cool depths
First in anger at its waking,
Then, upon seeing the light
And feeling warmth upon its cold and slimy skin
Opens to its new reality,
Stretches toward ever more light,
Wishing never to go into the depths again,
Yet knowing it must,
For there is life down there too,
And so, to the darkness I will go,
And from the darkness I will rise,
Again and again,
Until I wear only the crown
The Angels remind us that in a world where people are positively hurting, and hurting others, what if empathy was the collective goal? What if empathy, more than any other skill or behavior, could set us all on a path to healing? What if?
The Angels remind us that when things seems dark, it is often because we have entered into a cocoon of our own making, silently awaiting our next transformation.
The Angels remind us that just when the world seems to turn in our direction, the axis can shift, and with it a decision: to shield from the pain of change or rise to the opportunity for something we never thought possible.
The Angels remind us that there is hope in the world, we only have to look for it. In actively seeking hope, we create it, each day with each breath.
