When we remember the goodness, we bring the light into the darkness.
With every situation, no matter how tragic, there are karmic opportunities. This means there are opportunities to be helpful, compassionate, and lessons learned along the way. When we remember the goodness, we bring the light into the darkness.
One quote that I always go back to is from Mr. Rogers. “When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, ‘Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.”
The very nature of any tragedy changes us on many levels. It changes who we are and how we relate to those around us and the world, in general. Recently, the headline news has been focused on Las Vegas. All over the world, people are reporting that they are feeling numb, nauseous, dizzy, start to cry, and have difficulty concentrating. Even though we may not personally know any of the victims, it still affects us. Why is that?
The energy of the Las Vegas tragedy is echoing out. As we continually say in our podcast, we do not live in a bubble and that our actions and reactions do affect one another. What we are feeling is the energy vibration of the Las Vegas horror.
It may leave us all feeling a bit helpless and unnerved. We know that in the days and weeks to come, we will hear the stories of the dead, the wounded, and the heroes. Everyone will feel very sorry for these losses. It leaves us with fear, insecurities, and outrage. It reminds us of the same horrors of past, it also reminds us this will not be the last time such a tragedy happens. It seems out of our control.
We know we cannot do anything about the event that already happened. So what can we do about it? We can be helpful moving forward.
Tina and I recorded a special episode, The Las Vegas Tragedy, where we discuss these things and more.
