Icould continue to look into the trauma hole where my burned down house and all my cherished possessions were, or I could begin moving onward and upward. I have chosen to do the latter as the “trauma hole” got rather exhausting and boring after a while. Re-experiencing the trauma and the loss over and over has become rather tedious. And I’d rather focus on helping those who are in the “trauma hole gazing” phase either consciously or subconsciously, to see that there is hope and light available to everyone. No matter the circumstance that created the “trauma hole” there are things we can do to help others and ourselves.
We don’t always know why things happen the way they do. What we do know is that there is always a much larger picture than our limited view of the world and its energetic happenings. And the optimist in me would like to think that whatever happened was somehow in my best interest.
The one thing I have learned is: We don’t usually get to choose when we get to experience our humanity, we just get to be there for it. The loss of my home in my life was my personal journey into humanity from a different and somewhat humbling perspective. All of our journeys are relative to each experience. One is not more or less important than others’. They are all relative.
Right now, many are experiencing great losses. As light beings here in this human existence, we can benefit not only from our pedestrian actions of offering relief and resources, but also from offering encouragement, and strength through spiritual energetic offerings of prayers and light.
