I meditate a lot with #DeepakChopra and #oprah ... So in this mediatation #hopegoesglobal , I was inspired to write a piece. Most of you have seen a #snippet on my personal IG (@azucarpoetisa205)..





my hope is grounded in a deep reality

a reality created in knowing

God has already delivered us from this pandemic

no need to panic

my hope is grounded in a deeper reality

a reality when my future becomes my present

where my heartstrings are connected to the universe

connected to the world

feeling the collective pain and loss

not letting it overwhelm the truth in gratitude

for deliverance into our abundant future

my hope is grounded in a deeper reality

a reality where this is not the end

only the beginning

of a new world order

a new mentality

where care and community reign

paramount

to success, money and greed

my hope is grounded in a deeper reality

a reality where essential workers

compensated appropriately

feeding their families

without strain or worry

my hope is grounded in a deeper reality

a reality where creatives are respected

compensated appropriately

not viewed as luxuries

but essential

to the renewing of the mind

renewing of the heart

renewing of the spirit

renewing of the soul

how do you put a numerical value on that

my hope is grounded in a deeper reality

a reality where existence is measured

by the lives you touch

by philanthropy

by connections you make

by the kindness you show when you could be salty

my hope is grounded in a deeper reality

a reality where the pandemic is defeated

a reality where the world is cleaner and healthy

a reality where our collective consciousness

is bigger than individual accomplishments

my hope is grounded in a deeper reality

a reality where after physical distancing

social solidarity

proper protection equipment servicing

the world stays different

the same was never working

in the first place

my hope is forever grounded in the year ACVD

after corona virus  disease

living

breathing

being

one with the world

walking in unity
