My heart goes out to all the souls in the Orlando shooting.
To those who have fallen, to their families, to those who were wounded, or scared.
To all those experiencing trauma from this experience.
My heart goes out to all of you.
This is something we can heal only by facing it, understanding it, and embracing the fact that if there are wounded, angry, hateful people walking our streets, that hate and wounding will shower out on our society.
The core of the problem is personal and collective wounding.
Something that happens every day and in so many ways, especially impacted are the upbringing of our children.
I hold all in compassion – those that were hurt, and the assaliant.
For as long as we reject having compassion for the aggressors, the longer we reject that hate is alive and present in our country.
By holding compassion for those who are hateful we provide the opportunity for understanding and healing.
Often they are hateful of themselves, often they don’t know what love or acceptance looks like… which isn’t achieved by more hate.
Those that were traumatized, wounded, killed, all need healing, and their families, and so do those who think killing is a good idea.
Sending big love from California. <3
