I've talked with several people over the course of the past two weeks, many overwhelmed and energetically scattered by the amount of trauma and chaos taking place nationwide.
But today, I noticed something new- a new energy. It's the energy of action and movement. Something saying , "Enough! Let's get back on track." It's a good feeling. Movement is powerful when we've been feeling stuck, stagnant or frozen in place. Just the simple thought or stimulation of energy that says, "Time to go," is something exciting.
So, needless to say it's been a busy day with lots of movement. It's time to get back on track and back to our personal paths. This does not mean stop helping those in need. It simply means get focused on your own life path and help where you can. When a tragedy strikes, our first reaction is to 'stop and help'. It's like driving by a car accident- you want to stop and help. The only problem when it's such a tremendous and ongoing tragedy as Katrina's impact, you cannot stay stopped forever. You need to find a point of movement, where you return to your life. You are still available for assistance, but you have begun to move again. Energy in motion stays in motion. Stagnant energy, stays stagnant. It's time to go. You aren't leaving anyone behind, you are actually stimulating even more motion to assist others.
I decided to get back on track myself tomorrow, spending time doing all the things I've put off for over a week. It will feel good to get my energies refocused. I'll let you know how it turns out!
