i can’t believe how many of you participated with me in this experience throughout the world. i was contacted by many new friends from some surprising countries, all sharing the same mind. all of us seeking “hope in uncertain times.”
i want you all to know, that i never deserted you. the first absence: i took some time to explore the opportunities that my renewed hope brought to me. the opportunities filled me with happiness and joy, like i hadn’t had in years.
the second: i’ve been taking some time to meditate, feed my soul, and fuel my hope through art. i’ve been going through my experiences of “home” and thinking about what each have taught me. i’m focusing my hope. i’m open to possibilities. i’m hopeful.
today is the last day of our 21-day meditation experience, but our hope goes on. we’ve learned that our hope is our strength…to stop, listen, and ask, “what is this experience telling me?” and, that hope is always there, in every moment.
also, just in case you were wondering, i realized that we were given a bonus of day 22. i will continue to post meditations, if anyone wants to continue along with me on this journey.
all the best…namaste.
