We see the divide. We feel it in every bone in our bodies, around every corner we turn. It seems endless and exhausting.
Ready to bridge it? I am. But first, here's how it won't work:
It won't work by trying to convince those on the other side of the divide that they are misled, mistaken, or misinterpreting.
In fact, no amount of convincing will do any good at all, so we all may as well stop trying. I have.
In other words, let's end the rhetoric on why Trump is good or bad, why we need or don't need a vaccine, whether or not we should send our kids to school...
You will never convince someone that their beliefs are "wrong" when the entire world is operating out of fear.
Please stop trying.
The only way someone's beliefs change is when they emotionally experience something for themselves. Notice that? For example, those who believed that the virus was a hoax changed their minds when they were emotionally impacted~ when they lost a loved one from the virus, for instance.
Nothing anyone ever said to them changed their minds. Because we are not in a mind game right now. Right now we are playing the emotional game.
And that's just the way it's supposed to be. The divide is the illusion to get us to join together as the human race.
That needs to be stated again:
The divide is the illusion to get us to join together as the human race.
Even those well-meaning folks who ask questions like, "What is one thing that the President has done to benefit humanity? I want to understand your perspective," are swimming upstream. Unless they have a personal, emotional reaction to an experience, they won't ever hear an answer that will convince them otherwise.
The way that we will bridge this illusory divide is to connect with people at the core of their humanity.
"How are you feeling?" "Tell me how your spouse is coping with everything?" "What have you done for fun lately?" "How can I help you?" "What amazing things has your toddler said recently?"
This is the new game in town...connecting with others on our shared experiences.
Living and loving as human beings.
You have permission to stop trying to convince. It's exhausting and pointless. Take a break. Not for our sake but for YOURS.
My work focuses solely on keeping our mind, body, emotions, and spirit balanced, and right now we are so out-of-balance that we can't even see it. But the after-effects are going to be enormous if we don't get a handle on it right now.
So take a break. Don't scroll or investigate or reply today. And tomorrow, start a new narrative:
"What can I do to help?"
"How is everyone feeling?"
"I love you."
Let's start joining the only race that matters. The human race.
Live in love,

It's impossible to ignore all of the things that are dividing humanity right now, isn't it?
Politics, race, bureaucracy, government officials, laws, social media, school scheduling, medical care...Even a simple five-inch square of cloth.
A five-inch square of cloth.
Are you exhausted yet? I know I am.
But there's a cure. A very simple cure. And it doesn't start with the government or a vaccine or social media advertising or anything at all that is "outside" of us.
It starts and ends with YOU. And me. All of us, together.
Are you ready to know what it is? Ready to commit to the solution? Here it is:
Accept everyone for what they believe and where they are. That's it.
No "buts:" But their decisions will hurt me or my family. But their beliefs aren't what's best for the country...
No "buts." Period.
We are in a quest right now to unify humanity. And the way to do this is to allow everyone to believe what they need to believe and create their own journey. Every fear or law or conspiracy theory or government official (or not).
You do you. You follow what your heart is saying is right for you and let everyone else worry about themselves. You can't convince or change anyone. They must choose their experience for themselves.
You can't do it for them.
None of us really knows what's going on right now, but this I do know:
We must bridge the divide.
Healers, therapists, medical professionals, educators~ I'm asking you to go first. Stop antagonizing "the other side." Stop trying to sell your point on liberalism or conservatism or vaccines or pro-choice or whatever it is you believe.
Accept. Extend the olive branch. Stop posting argumentative or antagonizing diatribe. In your heart you know what it is doing to humanity. Look there.
Reach out and have these tough conversations with friends and family personally if you feel called, but please, please, become part of the solution to unifying humanity.
It's time. We're counting on you.
Live in love,
