The Fix

And what if there is nothing wrong?

Out of our deep sense that "something is wrong," we are anxious to "fix" the world. The injustice, violence, and oppression that we see outrages us.

Yet our very judgment that "something is wrong" and we must "fix" it, creates distance and tension between our Self and our environment.

The irony is that when we embrace the world, just as it is, without trying to fix or change anything, separateness melts away, tension is released, and we see creation bathed in the light of grace.

That is when we become a healing presence, simply by being here. In the glow of our unconditional love, whatever needs fixing feels permission to heal itself.
