If this Tune-Up looks familiar, it’s because you’ve seen it before – after events in Paris…Orlando…Newtown….
Once again we’re reminded of what Spiritual Teacher Marianne Williamson has told us many times: “Personal transformation can and does have global effects. As we go, so goes the world – for the world is us. The revolution that will save the world is ultimately a personal one.”
The events of last Sunday in Las Vegas add to the unrelenting heartache of those gone before. And in that heartache, it’s difficult to see how a few personal transformations can save the world.
It’s important to remember we cannot change the world; we can only change the cause that created the world: change the cause, and we change the world.
These changes take place one relationship at a time, one conversation at a time…one heart at a time. That light accumulates and multiplies exponentially over years, miles, cultures, generations.
In Evolution Angel, Todd Michael tells us a frozen river doesn’t thaw all at once. Sometimes it thaws, then there’s a freeze and it looks like all is lost. But then the warm days come again, the ice softens and thins. “A few cracks will appear here, a patch will open up there to reveal running water beneath. Finally one day when you least expect it, the ice will break apart and huge chunks will suddenly let loose and float away downstream. You just have to keep the sun shining on that ice, day after day…even the most impossible situations can become more fluid if you persist.”
For now, our message to those affected by the events in Las Vegas and the events that have gone before: we’re keeping your heart in a safe and light-filled place in our hearts. And for always, we keep the sun shining on the ice.
