You are alive. You live in a most exciting time. You live at a crossroads in humanity and choices are very clear. You can continue to plug away at the dying systems you see floundering around you or you can reimagine and recreate something new and better for yourself and those who come after you.
To do this you must take stock of your strengths and your passions. You are alive. You hold within you great seeds of possibility that are yours and yours alone. There has never been another you. Cherish that. Honor the seed of your becoming and let it grow. Nourish it with kindness and respect. Allow wonder and remain a student of Life, regardless of what comes.
Give of yourself. Volunteer. Plant a tree. Tend a garden. There is so much awaiting your loving touch.
And allow your cup to be filled. Accept kindness. It comes from strength not weakness. Hone your gifts of humility, hope and courage. They will remain your steadfast friends throughout your life.
Do not curse your time, nor accept curses of others. You have potentials that have yet to be tapped waiting for you. Carry on.
And to those who fear for them: your fears are your own to unwind and discard. Do not pass the baton of fear. Systems crumble but from their ashes the phoenix rise. Do not doubt that something better can emerge from this unsettling time. It is never too late to reconcile errors of the past and make way for a better tomorrow. Forgive yourself for doing what you were told instead of discovering what was meant for you. In the time that remains you, find peace.
