Addicted To The Madness!

The quieter you become the more you are able to hear.

Last Friday, I took the train into New York to meet up with some friends and visit the Met. They are celebrating by having an exhibit of the fiftieth anniversary of Apollo 11 moon landing that took place on July 20,1969. It was fascinating and I highly recommend seeing it. But it got me thinking, of how absolutely quiet it must be in space. and the absence of any sound.

To get to the museum, I walked a few blocks and then took the subway there. The noise level on the streets was off the charts! Between the sirens, trucks and cars beeping there horns, and the stimulus from other things was over whelming. Thank God, I am able to stay grounded and be aware of the noise without getting sucked into all, but, I gotta say that I couldn’t wait to get out of the city. It can rattle your nervous system to a point were you just become numb and addicted to it all.

We are not meant to live like this. It isn’t healthy. Yes, you can learn to adjust to all the noise but you will never get in touch with your authentic self if you aren’t taking the time to be in nature. Going to the moon has shown mankind how vital and precious our beautiful blue planet really is. Connect to Mother Earth, embrace all the wonders and the natural resources that she has to offer. And most importantly, listen to the silence.


Resilience

resilience

After spending day after day down in Long Beach NY, I am amazed at the resilience of the people who’s lives were ripped apart from Hurricane Sandy.
In just a little over a month the climate of the area has bounced back tremendously.  Yes, it will take years before things can be restored however the progress of people working together is remarkable. This beautiful planet earth as well as the people living on it are extremely resilient.
We are always expanding and expressing our spirit onward and upward. If we continue to work and cooperate with one another nothing is impossible. Life is always seeking the light and as long as we keep the fire burning in our soul and keep our hearts open we will evolve forward. This storm reminded us how fragile we are and yet how resilient we are as well. So the next time circumstances seem to knock you down, remember that one  candle can bring light into a room of darkness but darkness can never diminish the light.  With the light in all of us we are the resilient one’s, who will thrive and bring abundance to a new world.
