Accepting means you allow yourself to feel whatever it is you are feeling at that moment. – Eckhart Tolle
Today, I feel low in energy, sadness, numb, and pain from the recent natural disasters and suffering in our society. I am saddened by how mentally insane some of us have become. The question is why are we so angry and unhappy inside at the core, that we would hurt others and end our own lives? It is pain wanting to inflict more pain.
I feel helpless but at the same time empowered to do more. To gather all the strength from within, to have the difficult conversations and challenge everyone to shift our focus within. How can we be healthier human beings from the inside out and continue to spread love and kindness? The first step is to face our own truth and focus on our individual struggles and pain. Have more compassion for ourselves before trying to change others and things we may not be able to control.
A shift within requires strength. Most may think you are weak or ignoring external issues. Instead, you are building the foundation of self compassion so you have the strength to spread love and kindness to others.
No one person has all the answers, but we can each do something positive. Today, I write.
