We’ve seen the pictures, each one more heartbreaking than the last.
We’ve heard the stories. Ditto.
The media, often guilty of sensationalizing, is doing what it should–getting the word out there that this is big, this is real, and this is serious. We all need to do what we can.
Having said that, I think it’s important to add something.
We cannot afford to wallow in the images. That is like jumping out of the rescue boat into the churning waters, and drowning ourselves. It’s not going to help anyone. No amount of feeling bad will make the situation better, and once we’ve sent that check–and accepted that we’ll probably need to send other checks as well, because this is going to take a while–we have to shift our consciousness, make sure we stay on high ground emotionally and energetically.
Have you done all you can?
Then stand on high ground.
We cannot help the victims by suffering with them.
We cannot help them by standing in a place of sorrow.
We cannot help them by being weak.
We all share one consciousness. Once, this was mystical theory. Now, it’s scientific fact. Quantum physics. WE ARE ALL ONE, at the deepest, most essential level.
We can help by offering hope.
We can help by rejoicing in all the wonders of life.
We can help by standing strong.
There is plenty of sorrow.
Let us now, with our thoughts, our attitudes, and our prayers, offer what is truly needed.
HOPE. GRATITUDE. STRENGTH.
