Tuning into wisdom in times of turmoil

I haven't written a post in a while because I have been giving the world the space to speak. I have just been listening.

There are such powerful emotions circling the world right now. They have needed space.

Speaking to loved ones overseas, I have been hearing about death and desperation, sadness, and grief, sickness and fear of being sick, and lots of anger and rage. Anger and rage seem to be the overwhelming feelings. Or maybe its the feeling of being completely overwhelmed.

The statements I have hearing are that it’ too much, too hard, too scary. and too painful.

Living here in New Zealand where we have been relatively untouched by the pandemic, the feelings have been of guilt, relief, and then guilt all over again. People have just needed to talk, to feel, grieve, rage and cry.
