INTEGRITY MONTH: DAY 31: “Instead of the terror of indecision and the fear of oneself, empathy for all living creatures and respect for nature can help us to save the world. As we let the waves of good vibrations flow into our minds, we inspire others and awaken their integrity.”― Erik Pevernagie

I believe that I have inspired some people, far fewer than I hoped to inspire in my life, but better than if I had not tried at all, I suppose.

That will always be the source of my humility…and is for many of the spiritual seekers I aim to be more like.

We all seem to know how little it matters, and yet, it does matter some. That is the purpose. Not to change the world, or even save it, but to make those changes in a few hearts is enough.

I do what I do and I walk the path that belongs to me. It is an interesting journey at times. And I get to see that there are going to be a great number of people who are in my life that will never get it. Whatever “it” is. That is okay, I suppose. I do not know their path. I seldom know mine until it opens right in front of me.

And the way I walk it is the important thing. This gets better every day, if I am diligent about where and how I place my feet. That is all we are here to do…get better each day. It is enough.

When I let go of ME and look around, there is much I can do in this world. There is so much destruction and pain. I cannot heal all of it, but I can help to heal some of it. That, too, is enough.

I am a therapist and counselor with long-term recovery from addictions and personal trauma. My writing reflects these experiences and the road I have traveled in 12-Step recovery settings, along with the work I have done for over 30 years in the field. My love of dolphins includes the stories of them being healers in places all over the world. I long to offer every broken spirit and body the experience of a healing hug. May my words and stories inform, uplift and delight your spirit and soothe your weary heart.
