Normalcy Amidst the Chaos

Posted by Lisa

Two roads diverged in a wood and I – I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference. Robert Frost

Why is it we tend to shine better in a crisis? Is it because the crisis makes us focus? We have the opportunity to focus not on the crisis but upon the solutions. It causes us to rise to the occasion. The key is to not concentrate on the circumstances of where you are right now, but where you envision your vibrational reality to be as a result of the environmental conditions you have been observing. We want to feel the wholeness of who we are. We are connected to nature, the earth, animals, and all life forms. We are energy beings just trying to live a human experience and survive in a world surrounded by destructive energy. How is your emotional energy holding up amidst our current storm of the century? Could our careless attitude of violating and poisoning the earth be catching up with us? A powerful life coach, Tony Robbins believes that most people are wired for fear and worry. He says there is a highway to upset and a dirt road to happiness. The trick is to find out which path we are on and reprogram your mind so that it is no longer the master of destruction. What road are you traveling on right now?

As I look at the world around me right NOW, I wonder how much of the chaos we endure is mind-made? Is it possible to keep our eyes focused on being calm when the world around us is falling apart? Through the mind, we create a prison of suffering, and then forget that we are the architect that holds the key that will set us free. I believe the first step to overcoming the suffering we create in our own mind is to recognize the good that surrounds us. Being grateful is at the core of our being. We are lucky if as children we experienced a kind of goodness through hope, joy, and optimism without judgement. But as we get older that innocence as a child gets tarnished or even erased by traumas, emotional wounds and failures which create a feeling of hopelessness that we as adults then struggle against. So, how can we reawaken this inner child to improve our journey? By rekindling the innocence and hope of a child that precedes our pain, we can then free ourselves to truly live more fully in the present. Present moment awareness removes time, without time there is no suffering, nor negativity that can survive. Hope is a practical link to the flow of life. Where did it go and how do we get back that light within? “We live in the world of our vision” so, what is your vision? What does it look like, describe it in detail? If your ego mind isn’t allowing you to envision this extraordinary world you want to live in, then you could be dwelling on the future, postponing your happiness with thoughts about what is missing or wrong in the present moment. Meditation reawakens the inner child. To enhance this awakening in yourself and others we need to practice this every day.

The second step to changing our mind patterns is forgiveness. We sometimes even inherit trauma, which we then attach our own emotions to. When we are unable to forgive, much of our pain is often derived not from what actually happened to us but from the meaning we assign to the event. In truly forgiving someone, we release the hurt and anger and experience a profound feeling of inner peace and freedom. But to truly forgive, we must change the way we view these events that we seek to forgive. We have to find a way through the pain. Do not think about it, feel it. Express yourself if necessary but don’t create a script in your mind around it! Do not let your mind use the pain to create a victim identity for you out of this misery. Feeling sorry for yourself and retelling this sad story over and over will keep you stuck in this suffering. Staying in the present moment as you feel the pain with every fiber of your being, will bring light into the darkness. This flame is your consciousness. Give it your full attention, for attention is acceptance which is fully surrendering to the fact that there is nothing you can do to change the past or the future. But you can change how you feel right NOW. Stop resisting or fighting to hold onto your story. It does not define who you are. Accept your suffering and then let it die. Now is the time for epigenetic transformation, so we find ourselves purging these emotions from our cells. Everything is recalibrating, the earth, humans and animals all are in a rebirthing process.

We as Americans were not prepared for our current crisis. It almost like we fell asleep like Rip Van Winkle and woke up in the show “Survivor.” We have become so dependent on our leaders or government to take care of us that we have overlooked how to live sustainably. We relinquished our responsibilities as parents, teachers, leaders, entrepreneurs, human beings, and disremembered how to just “be. We no longer walk in balance with nature or each other, neither spiritually nor physically. There wasn’t any harmony left to experience. What trust we had, we gave up long ago. When did we stop trusting ourselves, our own intuition and when did we give our power away? At the core of our very being is hope. We need to reestablish that hope. Our pain was self-created through what was perceived as being unworthy through patterns of false beliefs. Once we choose to live in the present the past dissolves. Are you ready to stop punishing yourself? Let us break down the walls of self-doubt and destroy the false sense of who we think we are. We are all in this together. We may not be in the same boat, but we are all on the road to a desired destination of happiness. I envision a community coming together, working collectively towards the greater good. Giving our neighbors a helping hand, sharing food, and building a solid foundation of hope in our neighborhood communities. Namaste ??
