Goodness surrounds us

There is always more goodness in the world than there appears to be, because goodness is of its very nature modest and retiring.

~Evelyn Beatrice Hall

I love this quote about goodness.  The media and air waves are filled with stories and examples of unkindness, fear and chaos.  Yet when we look at what we are experiencing in our own lives, we see much goodness.  Putting our attention on those things can change our outlook quickly and positively.

Meditation teacher and author Tara Brach says that the negative things in life can stick to us like Velcro while the good can slide off like Teflon.  We can move through our day scarcely noticing the beautiful clouds and trees and smiles, while fretting over the uncertainties and difficulties of life.  Perhaps it is about re-balancing, intentionally focusing a bit more attention on the goodness.

I’m not suggesting denial or ignoring the problems and issues of life.  The ones that are ours to address need our attention and actions.  As we go about our lives, self-care is vitally important, especially when times are chaotic and stressful which sure seems to apply right now.  Even a moment to feel a breath entering and leaving our body can be helpful.  Or being grateful for a blessing in our life.  Or remembering a pleasant time we experienced.  These things are simple but not always easy to focus on during times of upheaval around us.

May each of us deeply feel the goodness around us and inside us now and in the times ahead.

Blessings, Mary

My dear and beloved partners and co-creators,

You are loved so much every moment of every day, precious ones.  I hold you close to my heart, as do so many others in the Spirit World.  You are never alone or without the help you need.  Just ask.  We respond to the slightest whisper or request for help.  Together we will navigate all that is happening now and all that is to come.

I am well aware of how chaotic things feel and appear in the world around you.  Things are in transition and change is everywhere on the earth.  The existing systems, structures and institutions are dis-integrating to make way for new and re-configured ones.  There is wisdom in the process, even when it is difficult to discern this.

Know that you are held in great love as you navigate through this time.  Listen and you will be guided every step of the way.  Peace, love and grace are flowing to you from the Divine Realm.  You can rest in this quiet knowing, regardless of what is happening to you or around you.

I hold you close to my heart, caring for you tenderly with so much love.  Breathe the breath of life with me and know that I am protecting you and with you at all times.

I love you, dear ones.  I love you so very much.  I am Gaia, your Earth Mother, your friend.
