Australian Bushfires - What can I do?
This morning I participated in a small group meditation.
The Australian Bushfires and the devastation it has wreaked compelled us to focus our meditation on love, compassion, peace and recovery for Australia, its people, its land, property, businesses, livelihoods and animal life.
The loss is great in so many ways. And there is suffering and will continue to be suffering.
We also asked how we can help.
What each of us is able to do will vary, some are able to contribute financially, for others this isn't possible and a more physical or practical approach is what they can do. And still for others, none of these are possible.
One thing we are all able to do is open our hearts and offer love and strength or whatever it is that feels right for you. This is valuable to.
We cannot underestimate the power of this, the power of the collective whether you are in the presence of others or not. Everything and everyone is connected. We are one life.
I know that I want to help, to offer what I can in some way and that the opportunity or answer will come when I am still and listen.
Meditation of course helps with this and through this, we become clear and what follows is right action (in whatever form that might be) and right word.
My heart goes out to all of Australia - my wonderful country!
