BEING BRAVE



White tiger

“There is always light. If only we're brave enough to see it. If only we're brave enough to be it.”  Amanda Gorman

 

It’s an interesting thing about words – the same word heard by two or more people can have a variety of meanings. When I hear the word “brave,” I think of someone standing in front of a packed auditorium pouring their heart out either in words or music. Others may think that opening their front door and stepping outside is an act of bravery. Who is the bravest person you know, and why would you bestow that honor on them? I don’t have to think twice about mine. At age 23, my brother Ken donated one of his kidneys to save my life. Although we have had our differences through the years, nothing can diminish the immense gratitude I feel for his beautiful gift of life. To him, and all organ donors, I applaud the bravery necessary to perform such an act of kindness.

 

Dear Angels, sometimes in life, we need an earth angel to be there for us. I think of the sacrifices that some organ donors go through to give someone else – often strangers – the gift of extra years of life that they would not have otherwise. I have had 48 extra years that would not have been possible without this life-saving gift. Many have called me brave for being on the Peace On Earth Tour, yet it pales in comparison to what I consider heroes who give a part of their body to save others.

 

Dear Ones, there are many acts of bravery, and indeed, they are done for various reasons. When the heart is truly benevolent, you are acting with Christ Consciousness. Putting another’s needs before your own is indeed bravery. It is also an act of bravery to stand in your Divine authenticity and speak your truth or perhaps share your smile with a stranger. We encourage you to look at ways you can show up for yourself and your fellow humans. Are there ways you can help someone who is experiencing a difficult situation in life? Is there a cause that draws your attention, and you feel you may be able to help in some way? We encourage you to be brave enough to do some soul-searching and find what you would be willing to do to show up in your world in such a way that you consider yourself to be brave.

 

Dear Angels, thank you. I love you. Namaste y’all.

 

Today, I promise to explore more ways to show compassion to others.

 

March is just around the corner, and it is National Kidney Month. I encourage you to reach out to someone you know who has donated or received a kidney and share some love. Also, please consider being an organ donor yourself.
