It’s a word we tend to shy away from.
Who wants to look at shame?
On planet in our external reality we see it everyday.
What is war, gun violence, the manufacture of weapons, the refugee crisis, but our shame?
What is gender inequality, modern slavery, violence against women, but our shame?
What is the opioid crisis, but our shame?
We lost almost 70,000 people to drug overdoses last year in Canada and the United States.
80 % of them were male under the age of 50.
We push this aside, not wanting to look at it, not feeling like we can do much. . .
As within so without.
We could list our personal shame, really look at it, and forgive ourselves.
When we do this we contribute to the global picture of disarray coming to balance.
Shame rests quietly. It’s not loud like fear and yet it’s a part of fear.
It lies like a blanket over us, stifling us.
Let’s lift up that blanket and look at what’s there.
Facing directly into our shame within, with forgiveness and compassion, in gratitude for our whole journey, we set our selves free.
From suffering comes wisdom.
Now is the time to create societies that work.
We understand what doesn’t work — we have lived what doesn’t work — hiding behind our shame doesn’t work.
Lift up the covers of shame and come out into the Light.
There’s so much to do!
Join the movements. Create the clean-up. Be the change!
We are the change.
Forgiveness, compassion and gratitude
for our whole journey, all of it,
creates peace within.
As within, so without
Peace within, peace without
