“When I reflect upon any situation through the lens of spirituality, I connect with love. My deeply rooted spiritual practice supports a loving and meaningful perspective of every situation that I encounter.
When I choose to connect to, or better yet, when I choose to empathize with another’s circumstances, feelings, and their individual perspective, this in and of itself, is the spiritual implication of interconnectedness.
When I begin to feel “triggered,” I pause, breathe, and remind myself to view the situation through the lens of a spiritual energy. My goal in every situation is to love.
I recite one of my favorite prayers in a moment of pause, and then I reconnect to love…
Prayer of St. Francis:
“Lord, make me an instrument of Thy peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is doubt, faith;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light;
Where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master,
Grant that I may not so much seek
To be consoled, as to console;
To be understood, as to understand;
To be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive;
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
And it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.”
My message is so simple, and yet too many of us struggle with this simple suggestion.
“Search your heart. Seek connection through a spiritual energy. Allow yourself to experience love through this connection. Speak your truth.”
The meaning of connection is love.”
Love and blessings,
