I am struck by this out-of-control world; it feels uneasy and unpredictable. With this in mind, I thought that perhaps it would be a good idea to remind all of you that even though it feels crazy and chaotic out there, you do have the option to create and be peaceful within.
This is not a call to ignore, instead it is a call to be in a state of grace. Consider those around you, who are experiencing such pain; be in a place of compassion and empathy for them, send them your love. When your own life is met with pain, have that same compassion and empathy for yourself. At the same time act as more observer than participant; this brings you to that place of grace that ultimately leads to peace.
As an example, try this: Close your eyes, see the situation at hand and see yourself looking at the situation as an observer. Now simply spend some time observing and contemplate the lessons to learned. I can tell you from experience, the quicker you learn the lessons, the quicker you move on from the pain and the quicker you move onto peace.
Life is not easy, it is not meant to be easy. Life is meant to lived, it is meant to teach us and allow us to become more than we are. Become more by invoking a state of grace.
