My Journey Home
Do you stop and pray when you happen upon bad news?
I don’t have cable tv and I don’t read the newspapers. If I didn’t have Facebook, news would only filter through on a rare occasion. Being connected has plenty of benefits but this is one of the pitfalls: Trending News. I don’t need to hear ever sad piece of news coming in on the airwaves, to know that there are sad things happening in the world. I have an internal radar system.
To combat the stress on my very sensitive, empathic self, I will stop and pray if I catch a glimpse of something disturbing. I step into my higher self, knowing that all things have a purpose, and I add my prayer to the chorus of others asking for the “highest good of all concerned.” It’s the one truly benevolent thing you can ever do for the world. Namaste.
