A huge thunderstorm has been raging outside my hotel in Atlanta for the last hour, literally vibrating the room. It's was a reminder about how loud, angry, opinionated commentaries separate, the inability to hear keeping us from being able to see true light. No doubt like you, I've learned that when anger causes tongues to blaze like the Furies, my heart goes deaf and it's impossible to hear my own thoughts. What that means is that it’s time to take cover and do whatever must be done to stay safe, as words can often turn to injury.
Love is a universal truth. When know we're heard, our inner light comes back on and illumines the moment without searing our essence. You deserve to be heard, understood and loved.
