Cynthia Greb: Dreaming a Better World
All That We Do With Love is Our Service
All That We Do With Joy is Our Purpose
What if we each realized we were ambassadors of the Divine? What if we knew it was our job (our joy!) to simply radiate love, kindness, and peace wherever we are? What if our very presence makes each place we visit a little better? What if we could each make this world a more heavenly place through our smile, our prayers, our thoughts, our love, our laughter, our words, our touch, our actions?
My personal goal is to help make the world a better place—in whatever way I joyfully can. One thing I like to do is focus on the positive whenever possible. I truly believe that what we focus on, we create—both in our own individual lives and on a global scale. It doesn’t matter if we love it or hate it, want it or fear it; if we give a great deal of our attention to it, we bring it into manifestation.
What are some things that bring me joy? Writing, taking photos, painting, singing, dancing, hanging out with animals, communing with the natural world, being in sacred space, traveling around the country, reading, being mellow, hanging out with friends, enjoying a good meal, a good movie, a fire in the winter or a pool in the summer….
I love indigenous traditions from all over the world. Did you know that many prophecies have foretold this time on the planet? It is a time of great transition. The old paradigm is fighting for its life, but a New Earth is being born. For those of us who yearn for a more harmonious planet, the time will come! But like many births, there can be some rather intense labor pains before New Life emerges. Try to breathe through it all. As the Hopi elders said several years ago:
“There is a river flowing now very fast.
It is so great and swift that there are those who will be afraid.
They will try to hold on to the shore.
They will feel they are being torn apart, and they will suffer greatly.
Know the river has its destination.
The elders say we must let go of the shore, push off into the middle of the river, keep our eyes open, and our heads above the water.
See who is in there with you and celebrate!”
(To read the entirety of this beautiful prophecy, as well as others, go to “A Hopi Elder Speaks“)
I believe all is in divine order. This is a time for human beings, spiritual masters, and the angelic kingdom to all work together to bring a spirit of redemption and hope to this planet.
My hope is to inspire people to live a life of love and compassion. We have multiple opportunities every day to make the choice to live with either love or fear (as the Course of Miracles says.) Let’s choose love. Even when someone pushes your buttons. Even when certain actions seem abhorrent. Our task is to learn to stand for what is right without devolving into a morass of hatred and anger. Let’s instead choose love. Let’s choose peace.
Let Us Dream A Better World
We are beginning to emerge, after many, many long years, from a patriarchal world of war and chaos. The more feminine path we are being called to walk is one of love and cooperation.
Can we agree to let go of what no longer works so that we can embrace the new? Can we become our best selves, even when it appears things are falling apart around us? Can we look for the ways we are alike instead of focusing on all the ways we are different? Will we learn to recognize our common humanity? Will we begin to treat the animals and trees, the water and Earth with enormous respect? Can we be thankful for all our many blessings?
I hope so. I hope we can choose the Path of Love. I hope we can look upon one another with the eyes of compassion and embrace a world of peace. May a new world be born. That is my dream.
As the Aborigines say, “Let us dream a better world.”
So be it.

The HOPE Papers
If you are suffering from despair about the state of the world, please download this document.
This paper began to take shape as I was researching, preparing for talks on the subject: “Cultivating a Spirit of Hope.” Currently this is a 20-page downloadable document listing over 170 really wonderful things going on in the world. (And this is just the tip of a beautiful iceberg!) With each item, links are provided so that you can seek out additional information if you desire. And, if you’d like to hear about something other than the apocalypse, there are also three really beautiful prophecies about a New Earth, one glorious beyond our imagination.
I believe we absolutely need Hope in order to believe that the future we want is possible! May The HOPE Papers lift your spirits and fortify you for the very important task of co-creating the beautiful world that we all want. Please, folks, dream big!
To receive a downloadable link, please donate one dollar (or more) to support the work. Thank you!
Grief and Grace: Stories at the Intersection of Life and Death
by Cynthia Greb
If you’ve ever loved someone who was lingering at the intersection between life and death… If you’ve ever cared for someone who was very ill or steadily declining for weeks or months or years… If you’ve ever mourned the loss of someone very special, then please read this book. It may be a balm to your weary soul.
Called by one person “sad and beautiful,” this book explores, with deep honesty, the despair and exhaustion that can be so present at this most existential of times. But significantly, there are also many stories about the moments of love and grace, beauty and tenderness which also abound. Most of all, however, this book reminds us that we are never alone, and that life and love continue after death.
“After finishing this book, I sat on my sofa somewhat stunned, eyes burning from tears. This is so very beautiful, poignant, and a gift. I would recommend this not only to caregivers but to medical professionals as well.” –Betsy Zazow, RN, LCSW
“A rich, poignant, and honest book! There is so much comfort and wisdom to be found in this book! I loved the whole book, but especially liked (this part): “We are often so afraid of death, and when our loved ones die, we are so bereft. But I imagine if they had one thing they could tell us, it would be this: ‘Don’t worry, I love you. I’m alive and well. There is no death where we are. Life continues, it’s just in a different form.’” ~ Roberta Anderson, Entrepreneur
In this loving and sensitive series of stories, Cynthia Greb touches upon experiences and feelings that we all must journey through at some point in our finite lives. She teaches us the value of love in all its many forms and shows us that even on the darkest days we can be wrapped in grace if we keep our minds and hearts open. I read this book as the holidays approached, a time when I revisit the grief of no longer having my parents to celebrate with. I believe this book can help anyone with any kind of grief or loss, as Cynthia reminds us that life goes on and there are still moments of joy and blessings to be had. I especially appreciate her stories of how simply reconnecting with nature, where days constantly cycle through visible deaths and rebirths, has a healing effect.
