Hi There, Rhea here.
What a week in the world. This has been a heart breaking week for us in the U.S. with another mass-murder. Wow, writing those words makes it sink in even more. I hate that since the making of this film there have been so many moments where the mission of the healing we were demonstrating is so stupidly relevant.
When we were filming the interview of Marilyn Schlitz and Dean Radin we turned on our phones in between to find out that Sandy Hook had happened. My face was already on fire from a combination of reaction to a facial the day before (I had woken with it swelled up all around) and the news that week that mom's cancer had metastasized.
Life sometimes seems to just keep kicking us in the ass instead of taming down to a calm keel. And the story of when it rains it pours, well, that happened this past month as well.
In the depths of the fact that part of life is trauma, and these traumas are a combination of human caused, human behavior related, and nature taking it's course, we have chosen to address the possibility of trauma as a transformational process within the My Love Bomb Program, and, inside of the film Love Bomb itself.
Angels are all around us in the form of human helpers, we are stronger than we think, and pain is an indication of the need for healing, and healing is a form of transformation. There is also no road to healing that I know of that doesn't involve moving through the pain to get to the other side. If you need to feel uplifting possibility, tune in to the good that being shared about all of the human helpers that put their lives on a limb to help out on Monday in Las Vegas. The good ones outweigh the bad, and we can heal from this, and hopefully, embody the vulnerable journey of becoming Love Bombers.
In fact, I'm going to share what that means right here in terms of our values, because, it takes grit, courage, and community to be open hearted and loving in the face of what life is asking of us:
We practice unconditional Love.
We empower and take care of ourselves so that we can do the same for others.
We believe everyone has inherent value and gifts to offer the world.
We anchor to the heart.
We are stronger together.
We forgive each other and ourselves.
We accept responsibility for our actions and their impact on others.
We find power on the other side of our vulnerability.
We have fun. ;)
We take a stand.
- We achieve our vision with grit and healthy endurance.
Together we stay alive, we stay human, which means a willingness to break open instead of break down and shut down. The lotus blossoms from the murky waters, and we can do that individually and collectively.
