We have all heard that everyone deals with grief in their own way, and that we must do it. This emotion is usually associated with a loss of someone we love, but it is more evasive than that. Grief is something we experience even when we perceive an upcoming loss of a marriage, job or money, for example. Many children grieve during and after a divorce and their behavior reflect the emotion. Grief can make us say and do things that are out of character for us. It can cause us to withdraw from loved ones or supporters and depression or fear feels like the norm. Worry is one of the feelings that lead to grief and if left unchecked and exaggerated can leave us feeling lost and alone.
There are many changes happening in the world today. Each day technology moves forward in an attempt to improve the quality of life or even to undo previous damage to the planet. It seems that we spend the majority of our time trying to fix what is wrong in the world, rather than seeing what is right. With our fixation on correcting or regaining lost control, our outlook takes on a distortion. It is all too easy to think that everything is important in your life and lose sight of what really matters to you. The only thing that really changes in this world is your mind, and this is the key to improvement. As your outlook changes so, does your inner guidance and with this change your values become clear.
