powerful emotions swept through me the first time i joined hands with d and prayed. it was quiet so any talking or wild display would have been inappropriate, but those tears…i was struck by the rush of it.
there is deep strength in the joining of hands or the kneeling down together and a universal ask for wisdom, for healing or an expression of gratitude. it matters not what your deity is called. what really seems to matter is that together you face the world, together you figure it out, together you give thanks, together you create love, acceptance, peace.
had the presence-most-powerful-and wise-in-the-universe wanted us only to be solely and inwardly and separately focused, perhaps there would have been just one person – ever – on this good earth.
but there are about 7.7 billion people. indeed, there must be at least one with whom we can each choose to join hands.
