As most people that watch the news will be aware, there has been a terrible storm in the Philippines. It is gut-wrenching to think of the devastation of this and other similar storms. My heart sincerely goes out to these people, and I regret the timing of my last blog, in which the poem refers to storms, partly in metaphor. Yes, I know its just random coincidence, but it is an important topic to address.
The ‘storms’ that we individually experience can be personally troublesome, such as anxiety and challenges in day to day life. Anxiety itself is the most common problem in mental health. I will address this in more detail in a following blog, but that is not the subject here. My reaction to this storm, was heightened by the experiences that I have had with synchronicity and storms. I just wanted to say that I am definitely not alluding to this in my previous blog.
When we perceive world problems, and take things too personally: we add more stress to our life. Personally, I think that it is sometimes necessary to concern oneself only with the things that we can control. All the while, it is important to know what is going on in the world. Sometimes we can help.
