“Do not be dismayed by the brokenness of the world. All things break. And all things can be mended. Not with time, as they say but with intention. So go. Love intentionally, extravagantly, unconditionally. The broken world waits in darkness for the light that is you.” L. R. Knost. This quote appeared on my Facebook feed. I can’t remember when words have touched me so deeply.
We, as a nation, are facing unprecedented change. We may feel happy, we may feel helpless depending on our ideology. There are, however, many who are beginning to live in abject fear, including one of my sons who fears that his marriage and the adoption of his child may be negated.
There are so many that forget that we as individuals do have an inborn power; that we can choose our reaction and we can choose to love. David Ault, a New Thought minister from Atlanta has this to say, “Look beyond division and remember that the sleeping giant of inclusion is rising. Hold the world in your heart this season and prepare yourself for an unprecedented year of conscious and spiritual activism. Start and end each day with kindness. It’s the surest way to get in shape for the Love Army.”
So that is what we must do. Intensify our love, Become the love activist in everything that you do, everywhere you go. March out and volunteer for the Love Army.
