I just watched one of the more emotional Oprah shows I've seen (yes, I watch Oprah!). And what a joyful counter to the ugliness that's rampant in the media right now as a result of two ignorant, fear and hate-filled, and unfortunately very visible men's comments on the catastrophe in Haiti. The show centered on a loving and generously giving way to counter grief, in finding a way to teach and comfort others. Watching the people involved simply LOVING, simply GIVING to each other out of love, washed me clean from my reaction to the controversy around the other subject. There ARE loving and kind spirits in the world, and I am so joyfully glad to be working with several of them. In contrast to the ugliness, I am deliberately focusing on spreading joy to the world. My focus is on the love, therefore that is what I intend to experience. I will not give energy to the hate.
