When You're Overwhelmed With the Suffering in the World
Your heart feels heavy,
Your stomach feels sick,
And your eyes are threatened with tears.
You see yet another story of suffering,
Another reminder of the darkness in our world,
And it makes you sink.
Whether the suffering has touched you directly,
Or someone you have never met,
These deep emotions are a reminder that we are all connected,
And that we’re all ultimately the same.
This feeling of overwhelm can make you feel helpless, or depressed, or hopeless.
So the intention of today’s meditation is to help you flush out those deep emotions and to allow yourself to see that the only way to transcend the suffering in the world is through compassion, forgiveness and shining your own light as bright as you possibly can.
