I can't help but FEEL the collective pain brought forth by these Senate Hearings. When I stared the thread of believing survivors, I had no idea that it was the day of testimony. This is simply being in the flow. So....I've been in a contemplative stance, asking questions, allowing the answer to reside in tiny nudges from Spirit.
Tonight I felt the nudge...Something Mother Theresa said felt SO right today:
I can't change the world, but I can do small things in my own tiny sphere that could send ripples out into the world. (Paraphrased).
Tonight it was BELIEVING my daughter when she said her body hurt. It got me thinking....
How often do we dismiss such things as "drama?" How does this issue of BELIEF prepare girls for REAL LIFE as women in this world? Who do I doubt when they are in desperate need of someone to BELIEVE in then/what they say? Who do I BELIEVE and even TRUST in my life that may be unworthy?
This discernment has long been at the core of my ministry, and it isn't about the other people...I learned quickly from life experience while reading Anthony De Mello that it's about finally trusting myself as I live into the big questions.
I will draw more tomorrow.
