“This is your Woodstock and it’s long overdue.” ~Joan Baez opening Live Aid Concert at JFK Stadium July 13, 1985
The original use of the word ‘radical’ meant to ‘get to the root.‘ Unexpected events – accidents – and coincidences often force “radical restructuring.” Get to the root. Think back one year ago today – July 13, 2018. Seeds were planted. Are you where you thought you would/wanted be a year ago? Predicting the future is about as possible as a meteorologist predicting the weather correctly every single time. ~sigh~ But – adjustments can be made to correct the trajectory desired. Baby steps create Big Leaps. For today – Something is rising from the depths and chances are it’s not pretty. It’s a secret that’s been so well hidden – “I didn’t even know I was keeping it a secret.” There is great beauty in the ‘aweful ugly‘ – don’t look away. It comes from the “roots” – – so it may take a day or two to come into the FULL LIGHT. There are many shades of gray too. Pay attention to each step and consider the difference between GIVING LOVE – and – BEING LOVE. There is a difference. It’s about the healing power of hope coupled with discipline to create a desired result. Be kind. Take the long-view. Be generous with belly laughs. Never forget how to laugh at yourself – laughter heals root’s wound. It’s a paradox. Hope without action is nothing more than wishing. All is well!
