Between Worlds

April 29, 2020

  “Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the  last of the human freedoms- to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.”

Viktor Frankl

I feel like I am living between worlds.  I still have one foot in the old world, a world that is quickly vanishing and my other foot in a brave new world. When will I allow myself to totally embrace the new and let go of the old? Maybe it is being courageous enough to just walk right into it. Maybe all I have to do is leave behind all the baggage of  limiting thoughts, beliefs, habits, behaviors and fears that have created all the upheaval in the world. Could it be that easy? Does it take a crisis to recognize this truth?

 

So many questions. There are many people who are hurting more than ever. The massive changes in the world has caused havoc in peoples  lives. Alcoholism, child abuse, domestic violence are at an all time high. In Naturopathic terms, this is called a healing crisis. Everything is coming to the surface to be healed. All our fears, worries, insecurities, and darkness that we want to hide is all being revealed. The corruption, deceit, and cover-ups are bubbling up to the surface. Everything is being exposed.

Staying calm in the midst of the upheaval takes faith in knowing that everything is for the greater good. The divine operation is always for expansion and greater expression. This means something beyond what has gone before. Something entirely new. However, this understanding comes from deep contemplation and practice. Practicing being mindful and to observe my emotions, is where the answers to these questions reveal themselves. To listen and feel my feelings without judgement. To be compassionate with myself and love myself deeply. When I do this, I am ready to step into the brave new world. I then am ready to let go of the old world of limitation and put both feet fully committed into the unknown. A world that is full of miracles and wonder. If you are feeling like you’re between worlds. Let’s take that leap of faith together. Are you ready?


What Does the Future Hold?

ny times photoWhat does the future hold? We are living in times of massive change. Every day seems to be a new challenge. The world is changing rapidly,and if we do not embrace these changes with open arms, we are setting ourselves up for all the unwanted events that will penetrate and infiltrate our minds and body with a vengeance. What the future holds for you is what you make of it. If you resist the changes and continue to live your life from a sense of fear, scarcity and anger that is exactly the kind of world that is going to manifest. What does the future hold? We can all contribute something good to the world. We can all hold a space for the goodness in the world. I hear people say, this world is crazy! It is if you believe it is. There are an infinite number of wonderful things about our world too. If you focus your attention on the gruesome headlines of the news, yes, the world can appear out of control and crazy. That is exactly what the media wants you to believe and feel. Fear controls people. If you look for the good things that are happening and begin to contribute to adding goodness to the world, you will see the changes. We can navigate uncertainty with faith and courage when you trust in yourself and live with love in your heart, rather than fear and violence.  So, what does the future hold? The future is what we all make if it. Create, love, and give of yourself to a world that is only waiting for you to participate. Ask and you shall recieve.
