I’m moved to share that I’m a bit overwhelmed at this time in our history with so much disconnection. It takes a concerted effort day to day to rise above the noise of disgust and mistrust for our fellow humans who have started to feel like another species altogther. I’m an empath and feel all of it keenly. Rising above means cultivating love in my family, friends and community. Rising above means being my word and in integrity with living the healthy yogi lifestyle that I teach others daily. Rising above especially means knowing in my heart that that my voice matters, and it is important to keep sharing the light and to shed it in the darkness even when it’s scary. Rising above means finding ways to facilitate love through connection with ourselves, with each other and with our mother earth. Let’s choose what else is possible that can make our lives better as humanity.
