Colombo, Sri Lanka
April 2019

My sadness and anger have turned to resolve, tonight. How cruelty and beauty can coexist in such close proximity I’ve found is one of the mysteries of life, and sacred characteristics of human nature. May we use it to refine our souls.

I’ve experienced and received so much from this place in my eight months living here; immediately welcomed, basically at ease, and delightfully intrigued in the farthest land I’ve been to.

Now – over 320 dead and 500 injured – my heart breaks with my family, who have already been wrestling with the trauma of violence for generations. This is the closest I’ve been to such strategic wretchedness, including 9/11. I feel as if it was both done to me, and a world away.

To label is an easy and unfortunate reaction. This wasn’t Muslims killing Christians. And beyond terrorists killing innocent people, let’s not forget – it was humanity killing humanity. We are One. And we are killing ourselves. And, for that matter, our precious planet, too.

I pray and recommit to do what I can. To live my life in a way that does not hold space for these atrocities. That promotes connection, kindness, truth and understanding in each interaction I’m capable of showing up to. In a way that helps beauty shine so bright that shadows willingly withdraw. Whatever it takes.

Prayers up to SL. And action here to my life. Big love.
