I just took a drive…it is a rainy, windy & gray day. The peninsula is closed to non residents unless you have a visitor pass. I am sure people can still get takeout though. I don’t want to spread any fake news.
Over the weekend I was feeling extremely sad after seeing the amount of obituaries in the newspaper. I am overwelmed by grief for people I never even met. I have a heavy heart & have had difficulty sleeping. My mind is in overdrive.
Although I have to remind myself; this is out of my control. All I can do is make friendly conversation to the masked front line workers & pray for our dear planet.
When you hit rock bottom; there is only one place to go & that is up.
I have to keep revisiting the emotional healing wheel & focus on the words of those that came before me in my book collection that is comprised mainly of alternate ways of thinking.
“One who serves his Ideal faithfully will expand even though no one may recognize what he is doing or give him credit for it; and as he expands his Ideal will also expand.”
…. Swami Paramananda, “Faith Is Power”
I thought this statement was spot on that we can all do our part by doing small things for one another. Even though you may not get a thank you or a smile/ pat on the back; you are expanding the universal vibration. Nothing else matters really other then our intentions behind our actions. We are all fighting our own battles, but we must quiet our minds & not let the negativity sneak into the corners of our mind.
I feel everything so it is quite the balancing act while some people feel nothing. It is a valuable lesson we must all learn. Some people just do not give a damn other then their own little virtual worlds & that is okay. However, I feel for those people, because when they leave this planet they will understand how their ignorance affected others.
We all deal with rejection that is part of life. I myself found some sadness creeping in when a few people I shared my blog with did not even acknowledge I took this leap of faith. Do I let that upset me; hell no!
Alternatively, perhaps they did not read it yet or they are just busy. Regardless as I stated from day one this blog is for my own healing & others that care to join.
On another note I am somewhat annoyed my first name has to be associated with the month everyone was put on strict lockdown due to a deadly virus, but on the flip side there are also many great things that happen in the spring time. Flowers are in bloom; the weather is getting warmer. Every season there is a reason.
Cheer; combats fear!
