Sometimes all we feel is fear-
We imagine the worst.
We predict that everything
and everyone we care about
will just disappear.
Our heart rate goes up.
Our shoulders get stiff.
We brace for something that has not happened,
but that our brain predicts will happen.
Trauma and loss experiences do that.
Everything is being shed in a different light.
The film industry and the news channels
thrive because of our receptiveness
to end of world scenarios and
trauma or horror stories.
It can become like an addiction.
Survival speed living.
And yet: inner peace is lost and tranquility.
Hope gets overlayered with negativity.
Others become objects of our fear,
anger or hatred.
Sometimes all we feel is fear and anger.
that there is peace,
there is presence, and love and hope.
Let’s breathe and be still… “This moment, the only moment.”
