The miracle of hope so many of us intensely search for is literally inside us. Because we are the potential of making the impossible possible. The miracle hope entails, finds itself in a deep entrustment in a universal promise of oneness and wholeness.
Once we reconnect with this primal and ancient connection of trust, we fulfill the miracle of hope for peace on earth. The power of our heart is vital in accomplishing this.
Rational knowing versus inner knowing
More than ever we feel we need a miracle to create a better and loving world. Although everyone has a different view on what this world looks like, in our heart we all long for experiencing joy and harmony in our everyday lives.
This desire finds its origin in a deep and universal entrustment in a promise of oneness and wholeness. When we go back to this ancient connection of trust, we enable ourselves to connect with the essence for inner peace and living together in unity and harmony.
To accomplish this we have to let go our straight way of thinking and interpreting. Because this holds us back from making the impossible possible. This has to do with the way our mind works. It is focused on rationalizing things. It wants visible and logical proof for both the impossible and the possible. And focuses on what it believes to be possible. This way the mind excludes things it does not hold possible.
Our inner knowing on the other hand – like our gut feeling and intuition – believes everything to be possible. It makes connections intuitively and doesn’t need visible proof to hold things possible.
As both elements – the rational and inner knowing – are inside us, we are capable of making the impossible possible. Such magic realism is inside each of us. Therefore the miracle of hope is literally inside us.
The way to connect with the potential of the miracle of hope lies in our heart.
As the power of the heart builds bridges between our rational and inner knowing. Together with the power of imagination – that interconnects the possible and impossible and the explainable and unexplainable in us – it enables us to realize magic moments directly.
Moments in which the possibility of making the impossible possible exists.
In such moment both elements, the disbelief and trust, the familiar and unimaginable, the reachable and unlikable are equal partners in the present. All can be present at the same time without judgement on their value.
Then, in a way the possibility and impossibility melt together towards a solution of wholeness.
We can only achieve this by connecting ourselves with both elements. With the possible and impossible being present at the same time and as equal partners. This process of dissolving is nicely depicted in this video ‘the Pyramid and the Pool’ :
The power of the heart
This melting process is easier when involving the heart. As the heart is capable of building bridges through its warmth and compassion. Whereas the head differentiates; it rationally separates me from the other, us from them, possible from impossible and so on. We bridge this idea of separateness by putting ourselves in the shoes of the other person. Then similarities can be found and mutual differences or rational judgements dissolve. All of a sudden it’s possible to create harmony where it was found unthinkable before.
A working group on activism in relation to social justice at the Cork university in Ireland, effectuated this message of compassion.
During a meeting before their concluding presentation on this topic one of the presenters brought forward how compassion interconnects towards a solution.
This message created disbelief and a vivid dialogue. But as the message was brought from the heart the following days the disbelief with the fellow presenters turned into inner felt belief. Now during the presentation (end of this April) at the university similar dynamics happened.
First when the message of compassion was shared, this again triggered both intense emotional and rational responses with the tutors ad audience. From ‘how do we get politicians to think this way’ to ‘I am not important enough to be able to change the world’.
But as the presenters stood together as one when bringing across the message of compassion, awareness was created, bridges were built and a mutual understanding was awakened. Dissolving unbelief and disharmony. Inspiring all present.
Rising above the unlikelihood
Once we enable ourselves to rise above our own little islands,
once we let go of all disbelief and inherent thoughts,
once we let go the interpretations of what is possible and what not,
once we connect through the heart with compassion,
than we seed for the miracle hope entails.
It’s up to us to connect with this potential and give it magical meaning. Only than we bring alive the full potential of the miracle hope entails and realize peace on earth.
May this message encourage you on your path of sowing the seeds of hope, with special thanks to the inspiration of the working group in Cork.
