W16 5 25 FEMININE 002

A prayer for the Feminine, above, from ancient symbols.

It is easy to point fingers at the other guys,
especially when their hatred fills the airwaves.
My encounter yesterday with a female peace activist
out of the box immediately,
screaming and showing hysteria,
all over her advertising campaign and why we didn’t find her
(this was our first few seconds with her on the phone)
because she as the world authority on dying silk
reminded me of the need to do the inner work first and then again and again and again,
always checking in to your own psyche to see what is so about your behavior and intention.

Holbein, and Daniel Smith watercolors.

    I pray with you! Just last week I had a similar situation, and had to carefully navigate through emotions (others, but also mine). Change starts within, then it spreads without! Too often people see situations through someone elses opinions, and judge others based on that. I do not practice “accountability shuffle” anymore. I look at how I can change so others have a different kind of emotional response to the situation. Cheers!
