There are moments in life when all that defines your world, your life is thrown into question. Answers and clarity scatter to the winds. Your spouse has a severe accident. You lose your job unexpectedly. You have a crisis of conscious that paralyzes. In all cases your first question is “What do I do?”
It’s not about how to struggle through … or finding the strength to stay in place … or praying that a single “branch” holding you will not break.
If you take a moment you will notice Hope is with you; notice that what to do is to seek stability with Hope and hear her words “hang on.”
In the wide empty spaces of unknowing, here is where Hope resides. In that place seemingly devoid of anything, Hope waits patiently for you to notice, then pats the seat next to her and suggests, “Sit down. Let’s take a moment. Gather your thoughts. And most of all know, ‘All will be well’.”
Before you’ve even absorbed Hope’s words, your thoughts begin running in all directions desperately seeking something to hold on to. Some stability in the turmoil you have just entered. Something that will save you. You want, need, to hold on to something.
Hope is about trusting … trusting in yourself … trusting in your higher power, whatever that might be … trusting in the process of life … which begins with hanging on and a suggestion of repose. “Wait a minute. Let’s figure out where we are. Sit for a moment and collect yourself.”
It could mean standing tight. Then again it may mean going wit the flow. It can also mean … letting go. Hope will help you, support you, until the questions have answers. The clarity returns. Hanging on is how the journey is traversed.
