Making Sense of it All

There are times in our lives where events, that are often traumatic, lead us to want to “wrap things up” and put a bow on them. Senseless deaths or murders, such as school shootings or other acts of violence leave us grasping for understanding. Yesterday, I was almost involved in an accident in which there was a fatality. Hours after the Adrenalin wore off, I sat in silence as the various images raced through my mind. The speed at which the images flashed began to crescendo, and it was then that I realized that this was not my mystery to solve. It is not my place to make sense of it all. Instead, it is my place to do what I can to help others out. It is my place to be the best I can be in these situations that test my faith. My “small mind” cannot grasp the big picture here (nor anywhere, it seems). This realization has lead me to re-examine how I am living my own life. I’m asking myself: where am I unhappy? Where do I need to shift my focus to allow more joy? Where do I take life (way, way, way) too seriously? With these new thoughts in mind, I am beginning to mentally redesign how I view my life: it’s time to really appreciate all that I do have and to laugh more. A lot more. May you be well. May you find more joy today in the simple things. Namaste

  1. Those moments make us realise that we hold many things that in truth are not so important. And also allows a shift within to realign and balance to make clearer steps on our path. Glad you are safe kind lady ❤

  2. Wonderful, I love the slice my “small mind” cannot grasp the big picture…As you suggest though we can make ourselves available to come to the aid of those in need and thereby are healed or at the very least start to be

  3. I can remember thinking along similar lines not to long ago. In fact I remember my kids saying “mum, you take things way too seriously”. These days I try to lighten up but I understand what you’re saying. It’s not always easy. Glad you’re okay Tiffany. xo

It is a great mystery that though the human heart longs for Truth, in which alone it finds liberation and delight, the first reaction of human beings to Truth is one of hostility and fear! -Anthony de Mello
