Many of my friends all over the world knitted pink hats, traveled far and wide and are ready for one of many of the Women’s Marches that are happening tomorrow, January 21, 2017. We have two of our most recent mantra cards heading to Boston and D.C. in the hands of friends to share with those who are marching.
We spent today, and will spend one day a week every week of this upcoming year making mantra cards directed toward the idea of “marching in the light of love.” We must (I must) embrace radical kindness in everything we/I do and everywhere we/I go. We/I must follow Gandhi’s lead and be the change, the light, the love, the kindness, the goodness that we all have the potential to be.
I strive to live from a place of defiance, where defiance means living from love, kindness, generosity, and makes me think of Martin Luther King. I close my eyes and I hear these words–sometimes within the rhythm of OMD’s song Southern, sometimes just in my heart and soul. These words keep me marching in the light of love.
Well, I don’t know what will happen now. We’ve got some difficult days ahead. But it really doesn’t matter with me now, because I’ve been to the mountaintop.
And I don’t mind.
Like anybody, I would like to live a long life. Longevity has its place. But I’m not concerned about that now. I just want to do God’s will. And He’s allowed me to go up to the mountain. And I’ve looked over. And I’ve seen the Promised Land. I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight, that we, as a people, will get to the promised land!
