The world is swirling in a tornado of social disruption, creating waves of cognitive dissonance through endless minds. The confusion in the masses is palpable. George Soros must be pleased. The mind knows the reality, or at least it thinks it does. Each street corner speaks a different message, every television channel spins a different web, every voice utters words of chaos. Where are your thoughts safe from impeding dissonance? In the privacy of your own home, or does the family all speak in different tones?
Does it feel like the ground is shaking beneath you, like everything is rotating counterclockwise? Have your days bled together, and your nights seem shorter? Have you reached information overload or are you thirsty for more? More of what? What is it that you really seek? Truth? What is truth to you? Are you splintered into a million pieces of distortion, and you can’t find your way back to what you thought was your reality?
This social disruption is taking hold and bending minds. Where has logic gone? Did it dissipate into thin air and bring intuition along for the ride? Maybe you wonder why you were born at this point in time, to navigate this upheaval, and bear witness to a new layer breathing its way across earth, creating a new life force and causing all to question everything. Is this the greatest time to be alive, or are you stuck in the trenches?
So many thoughts, reflections, ideas, stories, questions – always with questions. Have you asked yourself how you feel today? Have you told yourself that you are loved? Have you allowed yourself to step away, to empty your mind, to sense what you feel without thought? Do you find yourself in a state of angst or a state of peace?
No matter how strong you believe yourself to be, and no matter how much conviction you have for your beliefs, how much knowledge you feel you have accrued, you are human, and this world is in a state of social disruption with contours bending minds across the globe. Do you feel it? You would have to be numb not to. No, you’re not going crazy, and all of your friends or family members that see things differently than you are not going crazy either. There are waves coming at you from every direction, even those you don’t see or hear, and they are causing disruption.
Everyone’s thoughts have gone off the rails from time to time. Trying to reel it in can be challenging. Go back to the basics, use logic, process the possibilities and don’t sensationalize. Some things are exactly as they seem, while others are entirely different than how you choose to see them. Consider that while you reacquaint yourself with your innate intuition.
What is the one place that brings you peace? Is it the tree in your backyard, the rock down by the river, the park you sometimes walk through, a sacred quiet room in your home, the front porch in the wee hours of the morning? Go to that space more often and sit in peace. Empty your mind and just breathe. Everything will unfold as it is supposed to. We may choose to believe we are in control of all external things, but the reality is, we are only in control of ourselves. We choose how we wish to feel, think, expend energy, spend our time, and what we wish to believe in. It’s all a choice. Sometimes escaping from this illusive reality is exactly what we need to remember that.
The social disruption will continue for a long time, so pace yourself, be kind to yourself, and be patient with others. It is much like stepping off a plane into another country, an entirely different culture, with symbolism and language that confuses you and may not resonate. But you will be there for a while, so it’s necessary to adjust and connect with your soul – your guiding force. This land may feel strange right now, but the footprint of your soul is still inside of you – is you. Remember that. When in doubt, turn to your heart, give yourself a hug, and know that you are loved. Stay the course – your soul’s course.
