Some times it takes seeing someone else’s thoughts in written form to realize we are not alone in our own feelings-something akin to a broken heart-but not necessarily over a particular person … but a situation.
( Source: ” What Breaks Your Heart? Maria Shriver)
… What really breaks my heart right now is how divided we are. How mean we are to one another. How critical we are of one another. How judgmental we are of each other and how angry we are at each other. Also, how lonely we all seem to be.
Yet underneath it all we are all longing for the same things! We are all longing to be accepted, to be seen and understood and to be invited into the space that unites us.
This space is filled with dreamers, explorers, teachers, doctors, mothers, fathers, the young and old.
The best way to bond is to understand that down deep we are more alike than different. We are more United than separate. Everyone wants to mend a broken heart.
This is not diminishing the idea that our anger is not justified, but putting anger into action for all ” we the people ” can allow our broken hearts coming together to heal and get back
to work… mending the crack in our divide.
So until tomorrow… “I do not need some tremendous miracle to give me faith in God, a Violet would do, or a spire of goldenrod, or a Daisy or two. But if I had to have magic and wonder, to render any doubts asunder, to prove God true… it would be you.”
