I have been watching the Netflix series called ‘ From Scratch ‘ by Attica Locke and Tembi Locke for Netflix. It was  inspired by Tembi Locke’s memoir of the same name.  

It reminded me of the possibility of awakening through darkness/crisis/loss. How do we open our hearts instead of contract? This series, for me,  is powerful in sharing in a very deep way how human beings keep open to love and hope when we are faced with mammoth life changing challenges. I have noticed when I have faced life challenges the moment I turn towards possibility even in the midst of the mental conditioning that keeps separate and powerlessness when we face fear. I allow myself the key to opening the moments of what feels like a mental prison. This is so important, because like I suspect many of you when embracing challenges are still working or living life. So the more we can sense our moments of liberation, friends, to come into stillness and choose to live in hope you are allowing yourself the ability to be open to love, kindness and compassion as a message of hope in trying times.
