Cultivating Hope

By Ally | Meditation

Apr 08

In this meditation, I wanted to explore the virtue of hope

Through neuroscience we're discovering that what we practice, we become. Hope is different from optimism, which I think CAN be about wishing. Wishing in a direction and then hopefully it will happen. Hope is a choice; it's a courageous choice. Based in reality and based in action. Hope inspires action. It sees the darkness, it sees the struggle, and It also sees the good that is possible, it sees the fullest picture. It inspires us into positive action. Hope is a muscle that we can strengthen.

This meditation is meant to cultivate hope and inspire action. Please continue to build up your hope. Then with hope to spare, help others build a future that is better than the present, safer, more kind, more symbiotic with our planet.

Our children deserve this from us AND we have the power to make great changes while we're on this earth.

As always, I'd love to hear from you!! Please leave me a comment below 🙂 

Namaste, Ally
