Clarissa Pinkola Estes: We Were Made for These Times

Earlier on, I posted the following on Facebook:

Going to Earth was the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do… … and a journey I’ve repeated for so long now. This is the hardest one yet. I really don’t think anyone truly appreciates what’s about to happen… but that also, there is so much hope, so much beauty… and love.

Please, don’t forget love. When things become challenging… and they are going to… never forget the capacity to love, to forgive.

Be compassionate, please.

In this article, ‘We Were Made for These Times‘, shared by the ever-amazing Annette of the AscendingStarseed blog, Clarissa Pinkola Estes describes the feelings felt by so many of us around this beautiful Planet of ours, in a way which, whilst realistic, also reminds us to never forget hope, love or compassion – and also to remember why we agreed to this return journey.

As my Sister has mentioned many times… ‘do you realise how lucky you are to be living in these times…?

Yes, we must remember this… and never forget that even through the darkest of times, a glimmer of light will always burn with hope.

(Thank you Annette, as always ❤ )

My friends, do not lose heart. We were made for these times. I have heard from so many recently who are deeply and properly bewildered. They are concerned about the state of affairs in our world now. Ours is a time of almost daily astonishment and often righteous rage over the latest degradations of what matters most to civilized, visionary people.

You are right in your assessments. The lustre and hubris some have aspired to while endorsing acts so heinous against children, elders, everyday people, the poor, the unguarded, the helpless, is breathtaking. Yet, I urge you, ask you, gentle you, to please not spend your spirit dry by bewailing these difficult times. Especially do not lose hope. Most particularly because, the fact is that we were made for these times. Yes. For years…
