Calm and Chaos in Balance
Are you overworked, rushed, worried about the state of the world, your family and friends, to vaccinate or not, concerned about your health, finances… shall I go on? We are often reminded to slow down and calm down BUT practically this is a challenge. The whole vaccination and mask situation alone is very upsetting for most of us as we are confronted with loss of our freedom, judgemental people, discrimination, stupidity and lies!
Sure, we need calm and stillness in our search for truth and wisdom. With the arrival of COVID and everything that goes along with it, the need has become very real now to establish a more holistic, natural and conscious way of living for ourselves and our loved ones. Can we do this with calm, or do we need chaos?
Not every situation calls for calm and stillness. A calm ocean may inspire gentleness and peace, but I know that crashing waves make me feel alive. Stillness has enormous benefits, but so does overpowering hits of sea air filled with salt. Cold, fear and a million emotions that roll, roar and tumble bring awareness to hidden broken bits that need healing.
This life is about calm and chaos, as long as it is in balance. In this issue of Natural Medicine World we have gone out of our way to inspire you with heartfelt articles that reflect this dynamic balance. We trust you will find pleasure and benefit in each one of them!
