Finding calm in a chaotic world

Currently there are huge fires blazing away and destroying homes and forests, earthquakes also bringing destruction, heavy rain and flooding and extreme heat bringing drought. The world as we know it is changing rapidly. Much of what we have known is now crumbling around us. Things we have taken for granted are no longer secure and there are many who live in fear. Will they be able to keep their homes and live safely or will they have to leave and go elsewhere? Not only have we got a pandemic but we are getting these extreme weather and other natural events causing so much chaos.

But it is no good worrying about tomorrow as we do not know what tomorrow will bring. We do not need to worry about the past either although looking back at the past can show us how to avoid similar pitfalls this time around and learn from our mistakes.

Being in the present, living each day as it comes and making the best of it is important. Staying calm and showing others that we are calm helps others to become calm too. Sending love and peace out into the world each day and living that way ourselves also shows others that there is another way. Being calm and loving around others helps them to feel that way too and they then do the same and this in turn helps even more people to be calm and loving. A bit like the ripples on a lake or river when you throw in a stone and see the ripples spreading out for a wide distance.

As we experience the changes that are taking place now and those that are to come, staying calm, loving and peaceful is very important. Anger does not produce anything good and only makes things worse. As we stand together in peace, love and serenity we will be able to change the world to one we wish to have but this will not happen overnight. It could take several years for it to change to something better and for the crumbling walls to be built in a different way that benefits us all. Stay calm and send out that feeling to others. There is a better life ahead. We just need to be patient which for many of us is very hard. Change will come though and eventually it will bring a better world. But we have to get rid of the old to make space for the new.
