The world is in chaos. What do you do?

"I like what you're saying but I have a question, what does awareness even mean?"

This is the question I got from a sweet young college girl this weekend during the Yoga Month Festival where we had our own 1800 square foot tent. After a few moments, I responded with "Awareness means being willing to look; at yourself, at your life, and at the world. But instead of seeing only what you want, you see what is, and instead of reacting like you have, you respond in a new way that supports and lifts up everyone and everything."

As though she had been in this conversation a thousand times before, she immediately responded with: "But it doesn't feel good when I look at those things. Everything I see scares me. How do I become aware when I feel so scared?"

"Look deeper."

Our (external) world is in a scary place right now. The political battlefield is raging out of control, the economy has filed for workers compensation, and people's stress levels are rising by the minute.

Take a deep breath with me: Inhale. Exhale. Repeat.

With the world in chaos, NOW is the time to dive deeper into your self. Regardless of what's happening outside of you, there is a place inside of you that is calm, cool, and connected; aka selfcentered. It's always THERE. It's always OK. It's always SAFE.

Going inside during these troubled times helps. Why? Because it puts things in perspective. Though the outside world is spinning out of control, the world inside is peaceful. While our actions from the past might have been the catalyst for our troubled times today, you see that new creative choices are immediately available as you quiet the mind chatter and open up to what's possible.

Marianne Williamson once said: "You can't solve the problems of the world from the same state of consciousness that created them." I whole-heartedly agree, and with that in mind, this is my challenge to you:

Meditate every single day without fail. Do it for you, do it for your friends, do it for the world. If you don't meditate every day, contact us and we'll get you on-track. If you have a practice, stay strong with it. If you see people struggling, send them our way. If there is one thing the world needs right now, it's to stay calm and centered within the midst of chaos.

Much love,

Our society has become very focused on what we "should do" rather than what we "want to do." Parents, schools, media, and businesses all encourage you to keep "rising to the top", despite how you feel wherever you're at.
