Before it was the title of a book, it was a story from the bombing raids of World War 2 Europe, when thousands of children were orphaned, abandoned, and left to starve. The fortunate ones were gathered up and placed in refugee camps where they received food and care. Many of these children, who had lost so much, couldn’t sleep at night. They feared waking up to find themselves once again homeless and without food.
Finally, someone had the idea to give the children a piece of bread to hold after going to bed. If they wanted more to eat, it was provided; this piece was not to be eaten. It was just to hold. Sleeping with bread reassured the children and they slept in peace. All through the night, the bread reminded them, “Today I ate, and I will eat again tomorrow.”
What helps you to trust that the Universe is on your side?
What helps you to remember that there is enough?
What hinders that trust?
What is your “bread”?
Who do you know that needs “bread”?
