Is stuff getting you down? Is turmoil a word you use more now than ever? Know this – you will survive; you are doing that now, and you will thrive – some of you are thriving right now. Let’s all get better together.
When you have a harmony of body, mind, and spirit, others’ and universal issues will roll off your back.
You will have no need to become engaged in others’ dramas except to offer your mindful and quiet support.
In order to act on your compassion, which in my view is not wanting others to suffer, you need to derail your own suffering.
More harmony in your life is the best and easiest way to do this.
To have harmony in life means having the ability to handle life’s different areas ( career, health, relationships) and make them work for your path of moving onward. Harmony implies peace, cooperation, and understanding first within and then with others.
You can treat your body to good eating, healthy walks or exercise and read good books to boost your confidence. If you are in personal harmony, you will be stronger than those around you and able to give more to theirs, if only to give an example of a balanced body, mind, and spirit.
Your mind will be more in harmony if you meditate, or just take quiet time for at least twenty minutes per day; more if you can.
Your spirit thrives on you reaching out to others. If you perform at least one good deed a day, your mind will be fed. If you forgive those who have hurt you, your spirit will rise.
As long as this leads to body, mind, and spirit harmony, you will be able to sidestep any big drama in the world as we know it.
Give it a try.
Start with yourself, first and always.
