9/11, Hurricane Florence and You

We remember with a heavy heart the catastrophe of 9/11.Today we are praying for the hurricane Florence to soften its blow on the Carolinas. There is much destruction caused by human negligence and greed. Each one of us can impact ourselves and life positively or negatively. We must take a moment in time to deeply reflect. Just like nature is getting ready to shed and move into a renewal pattern, the human soul is getting ready for another cycle of spiritual growth. The soul is yearning to shed old or negative constricting patterns and usher in life affirming insights, positive commitments and new possibilities. Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish new year which was celebrated this week, honors this natural cycle of the soul. We are given 10 days between the start of the cycle, which is, the Jewish New Year to Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, which is really a day of attunenment.

In these 10 days, we have the opportunity to engage in an introspective soul searching, a time to forgive and be forgiven, a time to receive and release. These ten days are said to be the most auspicious days to draw closer to the Creator as well as to reconcile our relationships with ourselves and each other. In the course of the year we may have hurt others and we may have been hurt by them. We draw closer to our nature when we open our hearts and our minds to forgiveness. We get ready to renew our commitments to ourselves and our community.

Other traditions honor a similar process. For example, the celebration of Maha Navarati, which is also a 10-day process of letting go of earthly bondage and connecting with the power of Shakti. Whether the cycle of nature calls to your soul or your cultural tradition,I hope you take this time and make it your own personal period of inner cleansing and strengthening.
