“… most human destructiveness, individual and collective, is the result of unresolved pain and suffering, “which tracks our minds like a magnet and keeps us from accessing who we really are in spirit.”…The way to “transcend” pain and suffering is to “investigate” it by facing it directly and communicating anger and other negative feelings openly in settings that are supportive of healing.”
~ From one of the experiencers in Passport to the Cosmos: Human Transformation and Alien Encounters, by John E. Mack, M.D.
One century ago, the decade was dubbed the “roaring twenties”… Now here we are in what seems so far to be the “raging twenties”… And I think what needs to be recognized by our global tribe is the incredible wounding of the human spirit that is causing more and more destructiveness… The sicknesses emerging, on every level, and in many directions, need resolution and healing.
Resolving the pains and healing the wounds will require humanity to learn new skillsets, such as active listening, nonviolent communication, and holding space for others.
Mental health and emotional health need to be addressed in all aspects of society, including schools, churches, businesses, and organizations. Everyone needs to up-level their ability to empathize with others. Everyone needs to cultivate compassion. Everyone needs to become emotionally mature.
The raging twenties demands that everyone steps up and does their emotional healing work.
Part of healing our wounds involves reconciling with the past, reconciling with others, and even reconciling with ourselves.
In my post, “2020 Keywords” I listed my intentions for the year as Healing, Restoration, and Rise… Well now I’m adding another “R” which is Reconciliation. I’m gearing up for a project in which I go through all of my many boxes of old journals, datebooks, letters, and photos, with the goal of reconciling with all the ink and images of my past!
How about you? Do you need to reconcile with your past? Do you need to work on your mental and/or emotional health?
May healing energies activate throughout the global human tribe!
May all beings be free of suffering. May all beings be happy.
With compassion for all the suffering,
