When we can’t make sense out of the unimaginable things that happen in life, we can certainly let our senses take over. We can do this in one of two ways. First of all let me start by saying, it isn’t always easy, especially when the situation or events surrounding the tragedy hit home personally. We are ALL affected because we are All ONE. What happens to one of us happens to us all and affects us on a whole.
Having said that, we can forge a love rally where we reunite with the truth, or we can continue and perpetuate the fear cycle and expel our energy there. The more we give in to the fear and anger, the more fuel we give to the fire. Where our attention goes energy flows. Some things are beyond our control and life events have been happening since…well since life began. What we CAN do is see this as an opportunity to be kinder to one another. Perhaps pay attention to what’s going on in your own back yard and start tending to the weeds that could be taking root there.
In a world that is plagued with media propaganda, tabloid trashing and video game violence, I would say we are all somewhat to blame. Those of us watching and buying are no better than those dishing it out and selling it. We have Choices people and it’s time to WAKE UP!!! Life is happening all around us and our choices contribute to what we will continue to see in our world.
We need to heal the areas in our own lives where our wounds are the deepest. Anyone acting out with such hate and disregard for human life must be deeply wounded and have a severe absence of love. Please know that in NO WAY am I excusing their behavior, I am simply stating the obvious. Where can we send love to ourselves and our children so that we might be kinder, more compassionate and see life through the lens of all the good in the world rather than feed the media frenzy with our time and attention.
People keep saying, “Things MUST Change.” But no one seems to think it involves them. Michael Jackson’s song “Man in the Mirror” should be playing louder than ever and Instead it’s more like John Mayer’s “Waiting on the World to Change.”
We can start by changing the way we see the world. When we start focusing on all of the things that encompass LOVE rather than FEAR…our world WILL change.
What ONE thing can YOU do today that would make a small shift in the energy of the world?…..
