I share this very beautiful and inspiring poem by Ingrid Goff-Maidoff below as a loving reminder of ‘who we truly are.’ There are only two emotions we live by: Love or fear. When we let go of fear, there is only love. By recognizing the ‘sacred’ that is within us and in all creation, we learn to let go of a fear-based way of living instilled by modern society.  Which do you choose for yourself: Love or fear?

Love lifts burdens,

lightens darkness,

and warms our winter days.

  Love feeds the heart

that is hungry,

illumines beauty,

and softens sadness,

Seen and unseen,

bidden and unbidden,

forgotten and remembered,

Love holds us all

in a tender embrace.

~Ingrid Goff-Maidoff

May we reach out for Love to awaken us from the shadows of our deep slumber. May we always see the ‘sacred’ in everything and everyone. May we rejoice in the tenderness of Love’s embrace and embody the ‘divinity’ that lies within all of us.

I wish you peace and joy!
