If there is anything this time is teaching us, it is that the world around us is not in our control. When we realize this, we often begin to feel panic. Since panic is fear based, it narrows our field of energy and makes us feel endangered and unable to choose the best way to act and react. We may find our attention focused on things and thoughts outside of ourselves. It is important to know about the world, but it is equally important not to focus on the world. The right decision must come from our own knowing. We can certainly support the good in the world in the way which best matches us, but we cannot attach to the immediate outcome. At any given time it is our job to center ourselves and choose the best path for who we really are. There is peace in those choices, and an easing of the panic which serves nothing.
