Ratnadevi – Imagine Moving Forward

So many of us are in a state of grief, that we can say that there is a universal element to this pain.

Yes, we got a little dark. We did not leave it there. So do not be afraid to listen, because we did discuss the role of hope. And of moving forward.

Ratnadevi left us with a reminder to imagine deep compassion, that welcomes the sorrow. And to consider what the world would be like if it were to be covered in this all-encompassing compassion. The way to help create this world full of compassion. Go forward in the best way that you can. Find small achievable steps and take action.
