You are never alone.
(You will forget again--read this when you do.)
When you are down, when you get lonely, when you feel overwhelmed.
You are not alone.
You will forget this when the lie of your separation has permeated so deep that you can’t remember the last time someone was there for you. Especially then You will not be alone.
Just a moment ago in time your own mother carried you in her very body and fed you with her cells’ deepest loving intelligence. And your father planted the seed that would become you.
How quickly you forget the last time someone texted you to say they loved you. You are blessed beyond belief with loving friends and family and community. You are not alone.
You are never alone. You carry inside you the blood and breath of all your ancestors back to the beginning of time. How could you be alone with them standing within, behind you, below you, and above you?
There are allies on every corner-- look and you will find them.
There are people feeding each other and clothing each other and praying for each other in the club and in the church and in the coffee shop. It is messy, and inconvenient, and inefficient, and so so human-- you are anything but alone.
There are good people everywhere who will love you deeply whenever you need it and even when you don’t.
And the angels! There are angels and unseen allies you haven’t named that are pulling for you non-stop! And there are animals! Dogs will lick your face even when you don’t want them to!
And the trees! The trees are LITERALLY giving you breath. How much less alone could you be?
Plants!! How can you say you are alone when there is a plant who has offered its life to you time and again that keeps you strong and sane and happy and healthy!? There are millions of plants and animals who have given their lives just to sustain you.
