The mature expression of hope includes three elements: the aspiration for manifesting our full potential, a trust that this is possible, and an energy that engages to serve this unfolding. In this talk, we explore the importance of hope on the spiritual path, its shadow side, and how we can nourish hope through these three elements in a way that serves inner freedom and the healing of our world.
Let the beauty we love be what we do. There are hundreds of ways to kneel and kiss the ground. ~ Rumi
Reflection: “When you’re feeling most alive and present, what’s going on? What are you doing? What do you love? Take a moment to take one thing that you know you really love – imagine it – sense yourself engaged in what you love. What’s going on inside you that makes this so precious? Sense who you are when you’re doing what you love. Know that this is another pathway to belonging – to your heart – to aliveness. This is a pathway to living with the sense of possibility in every moment.” ~ Tara
