When Dreams Disappear
May 4, 2017
I woke up this morning as I always do, bright and early, meditating at 5:30 a.m. Something felt different. A strange, uncomfortable feeling lingered around me during my quiet time, both yesterday and today, like a #dream_disappearing.
Just as the sun came up, I arose from my meditation to walk my dog, Coco. The sky was particularly gorgeous this morning with bright orange and yellow and blue patches scattered behind darker clouds. Something spoke to my heart as I gazed upward: “Be #thankful for your life! Be grateful for all that you have!”
I began to speak words of praise and thanksgiving in Spanish. My heart was full of gratitude, yet that uncomfortable heaviness continued in my heart as it had done yesterday.
I realized about midday yesterday that the day was a bit off in almost every way. It was as if the sun was shining in the wrong direction. Everything electrical began to go eschew, breaking, shutting down. I also found out that a friend had passed away early that morning. I realized why my heart was a bit heavy.
But this morning, as I discerned the same feeling, almost immediately I saw on Facebook that a friend who had tried so hard to recreate his life in the U.S., away from him war-torn homeland, had to return to the threat of harm early this morning from Miami International. I was thankful for his life and mine crossing paths and all the other friends who had come from other countries to grace me with a piece of their culture and a better understanding of what’s happening in the world around me.
Sometimes as an American, we have all taken for granted how blessed we have been to have stayed out of the war zone. Yes, we have gone to war in other lands, but we haven’t been under fire, as so many lands face every day. I’m happy to say that my life has been graced with a few friends who have been able to open my heart to understand the perils of life in those cities and countries. But, I’m a little disappointed that the U.S. couldn’t be a sanctuary for these few lives who have been educated, dedicated and spirit-filled people. I’m sad that the doorway to freedom from war isn’t an easy one to pass through for those friends.
I saw Hillary Clinton in an Interview two days ago, ready to get back to be a part of a vocal opposition to the Trump regime. A part of my soul woke up in that moment. I sensed a resurgence of power for Democracy growing and hoped that she would be one of the powerful people to lead the way back to sanity for the country.
I’m not sure if all of my heavy, sad feelings are a part of something impending or if I’m just feeling the grief of the world suffering. Please join me in taking some time today to say a prayer of Thanksgiving for our own lives and also the lives of those who are not as fortunate as ours. May their hearts be comforted by something, someone, a special light of hope, perhaps.
I would love for you to stretch out your arms and think about protecting the part of the world that you can help, by not killing animals to eat. Check out my new YouTube Cooking Series: Angel Feast: Recipes for a New World: https://youtu.be/fglz9GAJ3zY
