It’s been a raucous month in the US. So much for a lazy August enduring the dog days of summer!
There is a lot to absorb as we take in images of destruction and violence. The byproduct of tragedy, when we are an observer and not directly in its path, is usually that of introspection. We gain perspective about what’s important in life and experience a surge of our deepest felt values. We might send a donation and help as we know how. Then, we go back to our lives.
This is a call to action to reflect on your life to make right of what’s chaotic in your world. Where is there chaos and turmoil in your own life? Is it your family that needs attention? Your health? Your career? Your friendships/relationships? Your own attitude?
When the circumstances are out of your control, it helps to take care of what you can affect.
Peace in the home brings peace in the community. Peace in the community brings peace to the nation. Peace in the nation brings peace in the world. Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me.
Take the time. Make something crooked right. Let us know if we can help.
