    People who are honest, who can look directly at you with kindness and speak their truth sustains my faith in humanity. People who truly act for the benefit of others with no expectation of reward or praise.

    Sustains my faith in humanity? In addition to all the acts of kindness I observe, it is The idea that divinity can be housed in us.

    When I experience the love and support I get from where I work. I have never worked with such loving people. They make me feel safe.
    When I received help from my Meeting, just when I needed it the most.

    Babies, children, many animals (not all..) and being with/ observing/ seeing/ knowing so many humans who are present with those who are most vulnerable in simple, uncomplicated ways …

    With that Moon Language

    Admit something: Everyone you see, you say to
    them, ‘Love me.’
    Of course you do not do this out loud, otherwise
    someone would call the cops.
    Still, though, think about this, this great pull in us
    to connect.
    Why not become the one who lives with a full
    moon in each eye that is always saying,
    with that sweet moon language, what every other
    eye in this world is dying to hear?

    by Hafiz, translated by Daniel Ladinsky

    I have a book called Humankind: A Hopeful History, which uses actual scientific and historical evidence to argue that human nature is generally good. I haven’t read it all yet, but I am fascinated to see how this book might help sustain my faith in humanity.

    Participating in the good things humans do with open hearts, skillful hands and cheerful dispositions. Yesterday for instance, for my food rescuing gig I picked up 300 prepared meals donated by some community focussed chefs, delivered them to agencies feeding folks living rough on the streets or in dire straits. And humans in the arts! In the evening we saw an uplifting play. And eco-focussed political humans. We rode to the play on bike friendly roads. It’s often a matter of perspective isn’t it?

    Kindness & love all around. It is there, we just have to look for it.
    Turn off the news, also called “fear porn”.
    There are kind, loving, generous, good people everywhere. They are the majority.✨✨❤️

    All of the wonderful people in my life, and in the world. I also want to mention Liz Cheney, as she courageously defends our system of government this week.

    I don’t have faith in humanity. I have faith in individual people, and people in community with each other.

    I’m an optimist by nature so my starting point is always to believe that most people are doing the best they can, every day, just as I am. I believe the good outweighs the bad–the good just needs to get up off its butt and show up and not take for granted that other good will be there to cover for it. So when I see or read about or participate in the showing up, my faith is sustained.

    The deep kindness I receive from so many people who don’t realise what good and compassionate listeners they are.
