“We have . . . hope as an anchor for the soul.”
Hebrews 6:17-19 says we should “take hold of the hope set before us [so that we] may be greatly encouraged” and so that we have “hope as an anchor for the soul.”
Hope can be found in the silence of a simple breath, as we rise anew, refreshed by the anchor that tethers us to the truth that we are more than greed and selfishness, more than division and bullying, more than “us” and “them.”
When we are anchored to the truth that we are not here for ourselves but for each other, we find our way back to the light that leads us out of the darkness of sickness and despair, and we lean into the awareness that lifts us above all pain, all poison, and all lies.
The truth that sets us free is the inhalation of hope, breathed as now. We can allow the greater good to anchor our souls with hope, the balm of oneness, giving us the grace that we need to heal.
