Sunrises and Sunsets
Its impossible to avoid seeing or hearing about the suffering our world is experiencing. Hunger. War. Displacement. Disease. Guns. Drugs. Mental Illness. Poverty. Suppression. Pollution. Natural Disasters.
There are people struggling all over the world. There is probably someone struggling within a .5 mile radius of my current location. While I can’t solve the problems of the world I can spend a moment everyday reflecting on the experiences of the world around me. I am able to spend a moment upon reflecting to say a blessing to those who are suffering, those who are in survival mode, those who have no voice.
To avoid criticism, say nothing, do nothing, be nothing. - Fred Shero
I am able to be part of the solution to the suffering, and not a part of the problem. I am able to take a deep breath and reach deep within me to be patient and forgiving. To be grateful that today I am not suffering, and remember that this is a gift not all in the world are experiencing.
I urge you to find those moments to be grateful. To be forgiving. To be patient. To notice Mother Earth in action and thankful for the beauty she provides. I know if we do this together then there will be less suffering in the world. Its a start. It is better than nothing.
Enjoy the sun rising or setting. May we all experience Peace on Earth.
