I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love.
Mother Teresa

I am blessed that I have experienced this great paradox yet I am still afraid to succumb. There is so much negative energy that keeps me in my shell. I know with every cell of my body that love and non-violence is the ultimate but my cells, my thoughts, my emotions are constantly being hijacked by intergenerational trauma and fear. I am perpetually daunted.

Deep breaths.

Take one moment at a time.
