The Chalice of Love and Kindness
The vision I see is a long dusty road that extends into the horizon. The sun is hot. As I walk down the road, I see a woman standing by a water well, and she offers me a chalice filled with cool sweet water. I hold out my hands to receive the chalice, and I drink deeply. The water is refreshing. I instantly feel rejuvenated and am grateful for this woman and her cup of kindness. I notice the light that expands around her, and she reveals her infinite spiritual beauty. It is Mother Mary.
Welcome to all who choose to read these words. It is with unconditional love that I come forth to you this day and offer you the opportunity to drink deeply from the chalice of love and kindness. I understand that for many, the road of life seems long and stretches before you into uncertainty. At times you feel alone and overwhelmed at the choices to be made and humankind’s external struggles that you witness on a daily basis.
Many of you are concerned with the well-being of your Mother Earth and the plight of your fellow humans, their stories and journeys. This can lead to fear, doubt, and worry. It can feel all-encompassing and insurmountable.
