There is so much transpiring in the world right now, it is difficult to navigate all of it and why it is happening at once, but it is.
The floods in Australia, the war in Ukraine, unrest between other big economic countries, stock markets remaining turbulent, petrol prices increasing almost daily, price of food increasing, viruses. This list is longer than written here, this is probably the longest it’s been in 75-100years.
If we ‘think ‘of everything at once it creates confusion, numbness, inactivity. But to ‘feel’ the overwhelm associated with all that is swirling in the world assists us to act in regard to what we consider important to us and/or where we feel that we can have an impact to assist others. Understanding the difference between thinking and feeling is important here. For many there is too much to comprehend if we ’think’, but to feel the hurt, the panic, the anger, the fear, the injustice. To consider what these things ‘feel’ like is to propel us to want to act. So stop thinking about it and start considering the feelings associated with what is going on.
There are so many people in extreme situations at present and they need those of us that are not to consider what we can give to assist them in some way. Is it time, money, clothes, thoughts, food, asking those in need ‘what do you need?’.
Feeling the overwhelm and allowing it to drive us to act is what is creating a huge sense of community to those in need, and we need to keep doing this until different situations settle down, until governments/politics/defence forces can even work out what they need to do.
