The Healing

Episode 318,   Nov 12, 2023, 11:08 AM

The healing we need - the healing the world needs - can't happen without us. When we separate ourselves from the world, as if it's up to someone else, we miss the ways in which healing and our shared capacity arise from our own minds, hearts and bodies. We can't leave it up to someone else to do - but doing it also calls on our courage, our care, our truthfulness, our love, and our capacity to cultivate a many-chambered heart... to hear one another's joys and anguish, love and anger, and hold it tenderly without either escalating or ignoring, so that something more true and whole-hearted can emerge in us and between us.

The Healing

This planet will not be healed by powerful politicians in big cities who spend trillions on a global strategy that never quite begins. They also burn much fuel. Earth will be healed by villagers who sing, by backyard gardeners like you, who walk more slowly right here, who feel the green through bare soles, speaking fewer words, cradling each others anger like mothers, awakening the heirloom seeds of the heart.
