The next brave step

Fear is a disease, the mystic says, and you have to get vaccinated. You have to get inoculated, by trusting, trusting in God that whatever the world tells you, you are beloved, you are deserving of a full life. And, you know what, your neighbor is beloved and deserving too. Even your neighbor who disagrees, even your neighbor who votes the other way. We are, all of us, beloved. We have to take small brave steps toward one another.
