Today was a hard working day.
My life’s work is centered around choosing calm instead of rage/fear.
On this day, my rage was up. Not one, but two mass shootings! On top of the 353 already this year alone in the US. I don’t know why we call this the United States, we haven’t found a way to be united and agree on a solution that will create a safer country for us to thrive in. With all the bickering back and forth, nothing is getting done and violence is escalating. Where is our leadership? Many other countries seem to have figured things out… maybe we should take note of what they are doing right.
Today marked a day, when so many people will say this was the day that changed my life, or maybe changed history. Unfortunately, this day follows so many that came before it. Too many deaths, too much fear and just too sad. Really.
My job is to show my clients a way to be calm in the midst of chaos and focus on solutions. It takes a lot to bring one’s self back to center when it looks like so much in the world is off balance. I know, I used to live "off kilter" for many years.
At this point I know I can’t live in despair or let the rage run my life. It doesn’t serve me, my body, or the world. If I let myself live there it serves nothing. I have to be back to calm, so that I can remember that I have the ability to own my power. This allows me recognize my inner peace, and the peace that is very present as so many beautiful people on this planet, and in my United States. I won’t let my terror win yet another soul.
I truly believe that the best and highest that we can individually do to change what is going on, is to be the change that we want to create. Be peaceful. Be compassionate. Be calm. Focus on the solutions and have a greater vision for your future and the future of this country.
Take any positive action. Be of service in the world. Do the thing that has integrity attached.
When you see something going on that needs constructive attention, say something, be brave. Communicate effectively.
This is a time for our leaders to come together and lead with cooperation, with an intention and focus on the good of all mankind. Not the profit of mankind.
There is a reason that we are having more and more shootings, our attention to the terror and anxiety that it creates is like fuel to the fire of evil. In order to cut off the supply we have to focus on the solutions.
Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that.
Be the light of peace and calm.
