I wrote this last year during a stressful time I feared losing a loved one. I stumbled upon it again today and was grateful for the reminder.
I went for a walk. It’s been a hard week. I needed guidance.
An hour later, my search led me back to where I began – nowhere. I found nothing.
Defeated, I stood still.
Surrendering, I bared my heavy heart to the heavens, looking up only to find a green sky.
In the Hindu tradition, green is the color of the heart chakra.
Gently, Rumi’s “only through the heart can you touch the sky” whispers to me. I smile and understand.
Be still. Go in. Stop running to the outside. Face your heart and let her speak. Let her break, so that she may break open to receive love. There lies your answer.
Love is always the answer.

This sign, because it seemed the perfect response to the question “Universe, give me advice about my life” I asked only a few seconds before:
