I’m reminded that I used to receive this little pink pill at the dentist, which I was instructed to chew before my cleaning.
It then revealed all the places I hadn’t brushed by depositing a pink residue wherever there was plaque. No matter how carefully I brushed before the appointment, this dreaded pink pill revealed the truth.
And now in our world, all the truths are continuing to be revealed. The divisions are being extraordinarily highlighted, and there is tremendous healing work to be done.
You might be wondering and asking how to continue.
Be patient and deep the faith.
As we continue to count and watch the election unfoldings in America- this is being written on Thu/5,
May we continue to count the ways that love maintains.
Let all the upheavals be felt and emotionally processed by us ongoingly.
Let the many and mightily necessary healings begin and continue.
And I’m including my mentor Dr. Maya Angelou’s poem here to re-MIND us all to continue.
Into a world which needed you
My wish for you
Is that you continue
To be who and how you are
To astonish a mean world
With your acts of kindness
To allow humor to lighten the burden
of your tender heart
In a society dark with cruelty
To let the people hear the grandeur
Of God in the peals of your laughter
To let your eloquence
Elevate the people to heights
They had only imagined
To remind the people that
Each is as good as the other
And that no one is beneath
Nor above you
To remember your own young years
And look with favor upon the lost
And the least and the lonely
To put the mantel of your protection
Around the bodies of
The young and defenseless
To take the hand of the despised
And diseased and walk proudly with them
In the high street
Some might see you and
Be encouraged to do likewise
To plant a public kiss of concern
On the cheek of the sick
And the aged and infirm
And count that as a
Natural action to be expected
To let gratitude be the pillow
Upon which you kneel to
Say your nightly prayer
And let faith be the bridge
You build to overcome evil
And welcome good
To ignore no vision
Which comes to enlarge your range
And increase your spirit
To dare to love deeply
And risk everything
For the good thing
Happily in the sea of infinite substance
Which set aside riches for you
Before you had a name
And by doing so
You and your work
Will be able to continue
(poem written by Maya Angelou in 2016 for Oprah)
