There is a great divide in our country, the blatant truth of which has not always been completely transparent. But there is no question now regarding the fierce, consuming passion of the opposing positions.
Whatever is fueling the contradictory views is sourced in a primal emotion that informs and directs all of our actions and reactions. That primal emotion is the result of our experiences. What we have lived and seen and benefitted OR suffered from plays a major role in the way we view the world. Whether that experience was life affirming or full of hurt and pain, we are shaped and formed by how it made us feel.
The critical questions in this moment are whether or not we replay what we have seen and lived through AND whether or not we decide if that path feels peaceful and satisfying to us and honors our soul.
Two primal emotions source the trajectory of all we do. Will it be Love or Fear that lies at the heart of how we move through the world?
This is a question each of us must answer for ourselves.
