While on my current pilgrimage walk to Santiago de Compostela I was given the gift of a hand-painted stone with the word „Hope“ on it.
I thought it was a fitting message sent by the universe. During these times hope is such an important antidote to negativity and hopelessness.
Our thoughts, beliefs and habits determine so much of who we are. My greatest hopes are:
- An elevation of consciousness moves humanity from the false belief that one religion, belief, ideology or other „ism“ can ever be imposed and enforced onto others.
- Humanity realizes that we are part of and not separate from nature. May we move from exploitation to restoration of natural ecosystems. May we have a future where the oceans are teeming with fish and healthy coral reefs. May many newly planted forests across the world echo with the sounds of countless birds, wild animals and rushing crystal-clear streams.
- May truth and the voice of reason, peace, love, harmony and holistic thinking prevail in the public discourse.
Hope has the power to move us from paralysis and the depths of despair to optimism, trust and faith.
Quoting the American virologist Jonas Salk: „Hope lies in dreams, in imagination, and in the courage of those who dare to make dreams into reality.“
