In a global pandemic and a civil rights revolution, blessings may feel like they’re in short supply. Regardless of what’s going on in the world, there is ALWAYS something to be grateful for. If you’re reading this, you probably have easy access to the internet. Many of us have a safe and comfortable place to sleep, access to healthy food, and a working vehicle. We are all loved. Something in our lives is working out well.
Even when facing challenges, blessings abound! Every obstacle helps us grow stronger. Last Sunday, Audra Nichole, RScP brought a group of spiritual leaders together to talk about the concept of “Leaping Into the Unknown!” for Spirit Uncensored’s Sunday Night Live event. Each panelist mentioned the value of pain. Luchan Baker III, RScP said, “We don’t grow into our bigger self, our God selves, without pain.”
The traumas that we’re all facing together as a country are leading to our growth. We no longer have segregated drinking fountains, busses, and restaurants because millions of Americans came together to dismantle Jim Crow laws. Though the dismantling of Jim Crow led to a new experience of systemic racism, Americans are rising up to change the tide.
We are now having the important conversations necessary for our country to evolve. Americans are questioning the state of our “justice” system and doing our best to work together to find solutions. This country will continue to evolve for the better, because we are having these tough conversations together.
This Monday, April 19th at 7p PT, the Ahiah community is coming together to bring love and light to these uncomfortable conversations for the “Creating the Beloved Community” workshop. This community understands that blessings expand beyond the sunshine, lollipops and rainbows of life. The blessings are present among uncomfortable conversations. This is where the real growth work is. The blessings abound!
