Over the last week, the world has been mesmerized by the photos and reports coming out of Haiti. The devastation, has created an emotional earthquake, bringing humanity together to help others who are in need. No words, can describe the turmoil one feels at being helpless, while watching the news about the terrible tragedy. Natural disasters cause millions of people to re-evaluate their priorities in life and so it should.
It’s quite complicated, to try to understand the meaning of such disasters. With every tragedy that happens, the blame game begins, and we try to understand the meaning of it all. Some believe it’s fate, others blame God, or the lack of belief in God. God is not a punishable God. There is no deal with the devil. I’ve also heard that it has to do with environmental issues and the way we are treating the world. Yes, it’s true we are not treating earth the way we should, there is a natural balance with everything.
Over the past decade, we have seen an increase in the intensity of natural disasters worldwide. Through the media, or through firsthand experience, we have witnessed the awesome force of nature. In the recent past, we have had natural disasters created by the tsunami in Asia, the earthquake in Pakistan and Hurricane Katrina in the USA. All three disasters caused unprecedented devastation and great loss of life, have been etched in our minds, due to the magnitude of the devastation.
I have seen real bat sh*t crazy articles, where it’s some divine order, ghosts that are trying to ‘cleanse’ the earth of negative people. That is just wrong and rather cult like if you ask me. These people, who have lost their lives in these acts of nature, are good people, innocent children and animals. They have done no wrong.
In some ways, the law of nature, states that whatever is created, is then sustained and eventually destroyed. The way I look at things, is in an intuitive way. To me, it seems there is not just one reason; there are several that cause such tragedies to happen.
I predict, there will continue to be huge catastrophic events because of the environmental effects that are caused by pollution, we need to find a better way to live. We cannot just sit and wait for the government to resolve our problems. We as individuals can make difference by eating better, saving, recycle, etc.
I always tell my clients that we are in control of our own ship. Don’t wait around for someone to come save us. So begin by mastering your own controls, because we cannot change anyone but ourselves.
My heart and prayers go out to all those who continue to fight for our freedom, and those who have lost their lives in Haiti. Please reach out to local charities, or relief organizations to help Haiti rebuild.
