Can you hear it?
There in your heart.
It heralds a fresh start –
a greening, a blossoming, an awakening.
Can you feel it brush gently past your skin –
like the first warm breeze of spring after the privations of winter?
It’s the invigorating whisper of hope –
an invitation to begin exploring again
after a season of suffering, darkness and seclusion.
Open your heart:
Imagine the transforming connection you feel when you connect with God or the Universe,
When you hold space for another human being’s self-discovery,
When you no longer feel separate from love.
The alignment. The knowing. The oneness.
That’s the inspiration for Renaissance 2021.
