Everything made of love
and everything made of fear
incubated and harbored in the human mind.
Ours is a journey of discernment,
of recognizing where love has gone astray
and escaped in the forms of anger,
distrust, sadness, depression …
Ours is both an inward journey,
As well as an outward journey.
We may try to cloister ourselves from the external fear.
We may endeavor to sweep under-the-carpet the internal fear.
It would seem such a tall calling
to wrestle with such an abundance of fear.
And yet, it is but the echoes and triggers within us
that are our responsibility.
In truth, we are born,
into this living invitation
to experience all of this Odyssey.
In accepting the invitation,
we grow our capacity to discern
and offer others an example of the resilience and connection
offered through expressing love.
