- Finding Peace During Stressful Times (Pandemic, Election) Through Nature & Sacred Activism
Dear Friends and Family,
I hope this post finds you safe and well, and finding some peace and tranquility in the midst of these surreal, intense times. If a novelist wrote a book about what we are experiencing, critics would say it was too unbelievable. No wonder we are charged up, yet simultaneously exhausted. It seems every day, moment by moment, breaking news about politics, the election, the pandemic, the environment and climate, gets more distressing and anxiety-provoking.
And yet, we can, and hopefully do, experience moments of transcendence during our days during our spiritual and artistic practices, walking in nature and parks, listening to beautiful music, observing flowers and plants, watching the sun set and the full moon rise, connecting with loved ones, joining with others towards a mutual goal, and many more ways.
I always find it amazing that we can experience seemingly contradictory emotions during stressful times. However, it is a reminder of how multifaceted we are, and that situations are more fluent than we may realize. During challenging times, it helps to realize how resilient we truly are.

I have signed up for a daily meditation that arrives in my email box from http://www.earthrising.one entitled “May Wisdom Prevail in the USA”.
