Our world is incredibly tumultuous right now. Between the wacky weather, fires, earthquakes, floods to the upheaval in politics, governments, and so much negativity coming to light, it’s quite easy to feel we ARE going crazy.
So many people are afraid of what is going to happen, saddened by the anger, frustrated by the ineffectiveness of our leaders, disgusted with behavior. Just recently the hashtag #MeToo went viral as women open up about sexual harassment and violations they’ve experienced in their lives.
All of these things ARE horrible. They are scary. They are disheartening. And…we must remember that in order to heal so many things, we must bring it to light first. We must acknowledge that it does exist and then find ways to move forward, working with forgiveness and compassion. And this can be very hard if you’re a victim of circumstances; especially with all the “natural” disasters we’ve been experiencing.
As I see it, our earth is also going through a major shift, which could be contributing to some of the weather extremes. The earth is a living organism and unfortunately, our human race has become a bit of a plague to her, not the caretakers of Gaia as the native indigenous populations looked at their role.
All this craziness, this continuous stream of chaos; I believe it is serving the purpose of waking up humanity on some level. It’s making us take action and refuse to tolerate certain behaviors or actions. It’s causing us to come together to realize that no, we do NOT want _____ (fill in the blank: war, hatred, divisiveness, arrogance, non-accountability, etc). This is actually a good thing!
When two ducks fight, they make a lot of noise and then they separate and shake it off. So do dogs. And then they get on with their day-to-day lives. We are in the process of shaking things off ourselves. It’s time for humanity to come together, to learn to respect each other, to have compassion, to forgive, and to acknowledge that yes, we’ve created some horrible systems and that we are now ready to fix things—TOGETHER!
So all this craziness and chaos, I see the good in it because in the end, we will come together and start to build the world we would all like to see. I truly believe that in my heart. It’s a matter of leaning into trust, bringing to light the darkness in order to heal from it, and to know that we are all one. When we can collectively hold the vision for the future we want to have filled with love, peace, joy and abundance, then we will realize that no, we are not crazy at all. We are in a paradigm shift and heading to a world that is not only sane but in fact, truly amazing!
