Welcome to Fall, 2020. If now isn't the time for personal action, I don't know when a better time would be. Here are compelling reasons for Autumn Action:
Rest In Peace Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Representative John Lewis. The world lost two fighting souls who spent their lives walking and talking their walks and talks. There's a great ripple in The Force now that these heroes are gone. We have an opportunity to step up our personal struggles for justice to honor their hard work and our potential.
It's a presidential election year in the USA. If you have a pulse and are eligible to vote in this country, you know how important this election is. Be heard. Be seen. You count. Please vote.
Black lives matter. Racial injustice is slow to change and the struggle must be steady to make sustainable shifts. Donate, call, march, pray, and most importantly, start with examining your personal biases and have those uncomfortable conversations with yourself. National Resources for BLM.
There's a virus still out there that makes people physically ill and, unfortunately, fills many with fear. Fear helps very little. Fear raises stress levels and influences bad decisions to be made. Be safe and be smart. Don't be afraid, please be sensible and kind to yourself.
It's a stressful time. So much is unknown, it can be crazy making if we're only connected to this superficial world filled with challenging pressures. A solid way to respond to stress is to deeply release into that place of ultimate resource already inside of us. Yoga nidra truly works for all.
