Helping Someone Overwhelmed with Bad News?

Scarcity of hope, not severity of fate, is the much-mourned ‘human condition’.--Strike Chord of Silence**

Hope Arriving By h.koppdelaney

This is more a “show me, don’t tell” solution. No amount of rationalization can resolve a problem of heart and spirit.

As within, so without.**

If you want to spread hope, you must exhibit within yourself. It’s like coming into a room filled with people whose mood was communally contrary to yours as you entered. Whether you stay in that room or not, most people will start to feel a shift in their state of mind, moving toward the collective attitude of the group.

You spread hope, joy, sense of self, etc. as you would a smile…by example. Even if no one initially responds, continue smiling. It can harm no one, and at very least is good for your own health and peace. Eventually, the smile will spread to those around you.

Hope is the companion of power, and mother of success; for who so hopes strongly has within [them] the gift of miracles.—Samuel Smiles

Another very important effort in bringing our world from its current malady is simply to acknowledge the value of every person you meet. Treat them with respect; listen to them. In respecting them (and yourself) treat them with kindness. This may not eliminate the bad news, but it makes the journey more pleasant for us all.

You project to the world around you what you hold within.
Peace within yourself is the cornerstone of peace in the world.**

This is my truth. Only you can determine if there is any value in it for you.

Celebrate What's Right in the World!!!!

It all begins with hope as the seed.

To those of you who are into the metaphysical as I am, I'm curious, when it comes to joining such a blog or a metaphysical online community:

What are you interested in in this area?

What would compel you to get involved in an online community?


What would compel you to actually contribute to that community in some way?

Alberto, I suppose one would join any community for the purpose of sharing what they possess, and benefiting from the wisdom and experience of others.
blessings and peace,
