Today, a Place of Pause (PoP) with a nudge and a blessing. If you are wounded or hurting, don’t go it alone. May whatever you most need slip into a crack in the doorway of your heart and fill you today. If isolated, may you feel less alone. If discouraged, may you feel a flicker – a flame! – of hope, of a future, of love.

Be Still. Surrender.
Be here.
Let go.

“When the words stop
and you can endure
the silence
that reveals your
heart’s pain
of emptiness
or that great
wrenching –
sweet longing.
That is the time
to try and listen
to what the
Beloved’s eyes
most want to say.” -Hafiz

A blessing:
May you sense from your core
your beautiful BElovedness
and deep security and hope.
May wholeness and strength buoy you today.

A nudge:
Light a candle for a person who is wounded and capturing your heart’s attention, whether near or far. This person may be you. Allow the flicker of the flame to be an act of prayer or meditation. Imagine the light of this candle warming the wounded one and kindling the flickering flame of hope.

Given the state of our world – the Corona virus pandemic, school and work closures, challenges to global markets and personal paychecks – let’s practice, together, taking a few moments to BE still and to pause.

There is much clamoring for our attention 24-7 with LOUD, FEAR-based, PANIC-inducing messages. This beautyFULL online platform BRIDGES “social or physical distancing” with the reality that community and connection is vital to our sense of wellness. Not only are we better, together, but dare I say that our lives depend on it now more than ever?

You are loved.
You belong.
We belong to each other.
Let’s standTALL together and light up the world!
