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.

Love,

SARK

“CONTINUE”

Into a world which needed you

My wish for you

Is that you continue

Continue

To be who and how you are

To astonish a mean world

With your acts of kindness

Continue

To allow humor to lighten the burden

of your tender heart

Continue

In a society dark with cruelty

To let the people hear the grandeur

Of God in the peals of your laughter

Continue

To let your eloquence

Elevate the people to heights

They had only imagined

Continue

To remind the people that

Each is as good as the other

And that no one is beneath

Nor above you

Continue

To remember your own young years

And look with favor upon the lost

And the least and the lonely

Continue

To put the mantel of your protection

Around the bodies of

The young and defenseless

 Continue

 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

 

Continue

 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

 Continue

 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

 Continue

 To ignore no vision

Which comes to enlarge your range

And increase your spirit

 Continue

 To dare to love deeply

And risk everything

For the good thing

 Continue

 To float

Happily in the sea of infinite substance

Which set aside riches for you

Before you had a name

 Continue

 And by doing so

You and your work

Will be able to continue

Eternally
