Are you an activist?
There are lots of people doing good works as many types of activists: political, social, environmental, animal, and so on. I salute you all! And if you are an activist, this post is for you…
If you are an activist of any kind, you probably spend some of your time watching the news and then posting on social media about all the terrible things that are happening. I know, I get it, we have a lot of really bad problems happening on this planet. And so I deeply appreciate those of you who are willing and able to be activists. I see you working for a better world, and this post is a suggestion of a practice for you to try (if you aren’t already doing this):
Each time you expose the darkness, be very conscious about it, and then spend at least as much time and energy focusing on the light. Imagine what you DO want to see happening, and visualize yourself in higher vibrations. Really see yourself holding the vision for the good things, for the positive, innovative solutions.
The world needs your light… your positivity!
So please don’t get stuck in the focus on the darkness! Expose the darkness as you feel called to, and then focus on the Light, the goodness, the positive visions!
Thank you for your good works on planet Earth.
I hope this post was helpful to you.
May All Beings Be Free of Suffering.

“Each person is doing the best that they can with the light that they have to see by.”
I can’t remember now if I saw that quote someplace, or if I made it up, but I’ve been saying it to myself for years, and I thought you might also like to say it to yourself. It is helpful to remember when someone is behaving badly.
The light that each person has to see by depends largely on how wounded they are. People who have not healed their wounds are often fumbling in darkness, creating all kinds of coping and defense mechanisms, so their “best” isn’t always so great.
Thinking “Each person is doing the best that they can with the light that they have to see by” will help you to cultivate the compassion vibration, so it will help you to send the person loving energies instead of negative reactions. This also helps you to keep your own vibrations higher in the face of negativity.
How much light do you have to see by? Have you healed your wounds? Do you love yourself? Do you have compassion for yourself? Another way to use the above quote is to extend it to yourself. Whenever you feel badly about something you said or did, try saying to yourself, “I was doing the best I could with the light that I had to see by” and then set an intention to increase the light that you have to see by.
One way to increase your light is to visualize a bright star shining into your mind. Imagine the radiant light of that star beaming into every cell in your brain, and then spreading down through all of the 37.2 trillion cells in your body. Can you feel the love of that light?
May you have a happy week!
May All Beings Know Deep Love.
