Somewhere, the world is awakening. Somewhere, the dawn is emerging. Clouds are parting and pink is rising. It is always the morning of the world somewhere. Do not give up hope. Let this very knowing—that a new day is dawning—be a clarion call and bell sound to your heart. Today might be harsh and tomorrow the same but nothing stays the same forever and morning will come again to your life. Hope lies here in this simple fact: every darkness has within it the shifting light of the coming dawn. One follows the other. To make this real within you … to nourish the seed of hope within you … go out into the dawn, watch the natural world begin again, and let it remind you that things shift in slight and slow yet steady progression. We need only ask two things: where is the dawn within you and what is awakening now?
