I'm told we're in the midst of "trying
times." As if people didn't have enough problems already, now
things have reached a stage of just 'too much' to handle. It is disturbing
to see the violence that is increasing, the weather changes and the
effects, the tension makes it difficult to find balance. Drawing within
which is what many are doing is not the answer. Reflection and meditation
are helpful, but shutting out the world is not the path to take.
Endurance takes strength but there should
be pauses or intervals inbetween needs of strength. It's like watching
someone hold a bar bell without putting it down, building up strength
to try it again. So much is mental...how you see things, but your
body is going through a lot of stress. It's difficult but it's important
to take time to rest. You know how it goes...if you don't espect your
body's needs, it will bring your attention to it one way or another.
Those who have families....talk with
your children. Ask how they feel or if they've heard of some violent
happening, does it make them feel less safe. Create a ribbon of communication,
give them a chance to express their fears. Remember your friends and
family...reach out to them if they need help. Give them the opportunity
to express their
feelings also. It is a time when support is needed, but also when
support can be given.
