This is my first Blog Post. It comes on the heels of a tragedy for all of us. I am speaking of the mass shooting that took place June 12 in Orlando at a well-known LGBT night club. I hear many people responding with “Love, not Hatred.” When I hear this, I am reminded of the Fire Element.
JR Worsley writes in Volume III, The Five Elements and The Officials, The Fire Element “fires our spirit and gives us an inner communion with God’s love, allowing us to share in spirit which pervades everything in the universe. It flows through our relationships with our partners, our families and our friends, and it is the power by which we transform ourselves and one another. It feeds our relationships and enables us to feel at one with the people we happen to meet, even with people whom we pass on the street.” The Fire Element allows us to give and receive Love.
What is needed most in our world today is Love. Open Heart, Open Mind, allow us to be one with another despite any differences we may see, hear, or feel.
We build resilience and peace by being kind, having compassion, embracing our differences, and giving and receiving Love.
