    About two days ago, I started to feel a head cold coming on. I have experienced this before and know the trajectory that it usually takes. (I have taken several COVID tests, and it does not appear to be COVID.) My parte was tremendously helpful in providing space and time for me to rest. I am now feeling much better—not out of the woods yet, but something that might normally last a week or more has resolved in a few days. Maybe this holds an answer. Perhaps I am just fortunate.

    Inviting a friend or someone in need to join to celebrate who otherwise might feel excluded and sad; to be inclusive from my heart.

    Turn inward and live from what I see, what is true rather than social fiction and concepts.

    “Highest healing potential” that’s a big statement. There is so much healing needed in so many places. From the tiniest parts of ourselves to the entire planet, including how we have caused Mother to become sick. As with many comments here, it begins with love, kindness, compassion. I’d add “honesty” to that list, as we cannot heal what we do not recognize. Acknowledging the brokenness, the need for healing of deep wounds, perhaps intergenerational at that is the start! Being willing to give what we ourselves need. But to impart healing in ways that suit the needs, not only the ones that are from our own set of healing tools.

    Here is a beautiful article that I read this a.m. and it is apropos to this discussion. https://www.mariashriversundaypaper.com/the-power-of-one-person/#read-more

    Each day take into consideration people who may be going through many different burdens. The driver who might have an ill loved one or other worries on their mind and might be driving slow etc. Just be kind and be considerate of others. For me I try to be kind and give back when I can or where I am needed. if asked or ask others if I can be of help

    Personal evolution because you can’t bring something to someone else that you do not possess yourself.

    Love is the answer.

    Perhaps by keeping it simple. I am thinking of a favourite quote by Mother Teresa – ‘We can do no great things. Only small things with great love’. Also, perhaps by taking small, baby steps the direction of healing. Another favourite quote by Thoreau – ‘There is no beginning too small’.

    I am not sure the world needs more big, bold, brash moves and energy these days. Perhaps a return to small is beautiful, and quiet. … .

    I’m floundering in the syntax of this question, which is getting in the way of thinking about the topic. As an editor I might prune this to “In what ways can I bring the highest healing potential to blossom in the world?” It still clunks for me but I can work with it.
    I think of individual work, community, and societal/systemic. I can seek to be a healing presence by being centered, kind, calm, and curious. I can work in my community to support initiatives and candidates focused on healing rather than hate. I can speak up when I recognize decisions or practices or assumptions that ignore systemic barriers to healing and health and invite people to expand their awareness to consider the lived experience of others.

    I can bring my experience, enthusiasm, and presents to whatever situation I’m in. Learning to focus this energy is my current challenge.

    Wow. There is quite an expectation in that question. I’m not sure that > I < can, but perhaps we can, together, through kindness to each other (all others), through being willing to change in ways that we need to for healing the planet, and healing the disparity between the rich and the poor. Also, I think we need gratefulness and joy.

    Once again the daily question took me to a song:
    Let there be peace on earth
    And let it begin with me.
    Let there be peace on earth
    The peace that was meant to be.
    With God as our Father
    Brothers all are we.
    Let me walk with my brother
    In perfect harmony.Let peace begin with me,
    Let this be the moment now.
    With ev’ry step I take
    Let this be my solemn vow;
    To take each moment and live
    Each moment in peace eternally.
    Let there be peace on earth
    And let it begin with me.

    This song was written by Jill Jackson-Miller and Sy Miller in 1955. It was initially written for and sung by the International Children’s Choir created by Easter Beakly and Arthur Granger of the Granger Dance Academy in Long Beach, California.

      In our church we sing a more inclusive version without gender labels… “With God as Creator, family all are we…” It’s one of my favorite.

        Thanks Avril. A couple days ago I put the feminine terms in parentheses but didn’t do it this time. It is a relief to know there is an inclusive version. My fear in this political environment is that things are going to go the other way again. Do you think I can find that version on line? I read a book recently set about the time the original song was written but I felt the author was writing it in response to this time too.

    Start with me and my journey. Sounds corny but live and share those things that are important to bring healing into the many worlds/spaces i occupy. Do my best each day to bring and reflect the goodness of healing. Let my actions be an endless ripple of change that impacts other to ripple healing.

    When I live with love and peace in my heart it naturally leads to being kind, tolerant and compassionate. I’m not at the point that I can do this 100% of my waking life but I do my best and I am mindful of when I don’t quite live up to this ideal.
