“What keeps me going during this difficult time. I try not to focus all my attention on the tragedies – but focus and acknowledge the many thousands of people who are coming together in unity to help one another. There have been many heroes! That's what I am choosing to focus on ... the good in people!
We have a tendency to live in fear when we see so much of it right in front of us. Some things are beyond our control and when we don't have control – fear emerges. I asked my dear friend Lauren Rainbow the other day: “How does one stop living in fear?” She said she remembered a quote from many years ago that she heard: “The opposite of fear – is love.” Those few little words made total sense to me, and made me feel peaceful.
So my advice in this short Soul Inspirations, which is dedicated to the recent news is this. Right now, try to stay present. Make time and go inside for a few a minutes everyday. Breathe and recognize that peace lives in you. Reach for the peace that dwells there. Feel the peace and feel the love. This is also a good time to be grateful for what you do have in your life. It doesn't matter how small it is. Being grateful helps to keep you in the here and now. Gratitude has its own wonderful positive energy to it.
Send out the peace and love that you feel to everyone who needs it. When you have your own inner-peace, it can resonate to those around you. If everyone did this, then imagine how it would be felt around world?
I hope this newsletter helps in one small way – and you received it, just when you or someone else needed it. Maybe just forward it to someone you know who's hurting right now.”
