These are tender times. I just don't know what to do about Japan. In my heart, I do, but not so much my mind. The images are difficult to digest. As a Reiki practitioner, I can send healing distantly, like a prayer. But I'm feeling weary in the face of the depth of this disaster ... like what I have to offer is a miniscule drop in the bucket compared to the massive miracle that's needed. I know every loving thought helps ... every dollar helps ... but, man.
Mustering a sense of festivity today may not be easy, but feeling sad certainly doesn't help their cause (or any other) either. On this St. Patrick's Day, I am especially grateful for green. It's the color of the heart chakra, you know. I'm focusing on compassion for those in need and the love that embraces us all.
