  • In the midst of the non-stop news coverage, even here in Britain, there are some positive voices saying, pray for those who are in harm’s way of the storm, stay positive for those who are struggling with loss and devastation. I can do that. It’s easy from this distance. My family is safe. I am across the ocean. I can see a big picture view. But please, when it’s my turn to freak out, could you remind me that this, too, shall pass, many lessons will be learned, every moment and experience is a gift and everything is unfolding in Divine timing? Would you please remind me?

    I have an understanding and belief about death, all death, as a transition with a strong element of choice. I see people choosing this opportunity to cross over and leave the body and physical world behind, and I believe the soul is eternal. But when my loved one chooses to go, please remind me!

    I have even heard some of those affected saying, we can replace houses and cars, we will be ok. And I know I can use this time to ponder and appreciate the things that can’t be taken from me, but when I loose material things unexpectedly, please remind me.

    I believe we are all best served when we offer balance to one another. My feeling bad for anyone about anything doesn’t help them feel better, and wouldn’t help me feel better if we traded places. So, for now, I’m offering positive visions, prayers and a smile. And when it’s my turn, will you do the same for me, please?
