(Concluded from Part 2, yesterday.)
Weathering the Storm
Meanwhile, we have to weather the storm before discussing how to live at the experiential level. We’ve got to get through the emergency first.
To do that, we need to release, express, give voice to our feelings. Scream into a pillow, write stream-of-consciousness, share with a loved one if you can find one who is not similarly traumatized, scream in your car, chop wood, or anything else that stretches the muscles and releases stored upset and tensions.
Don’t drown it in drink. That brings temporary relief but no lasting result. And it risks ruining relationships, which are probably at this moment already strained. (Although the opposite could also be the result.)
On top of this, we can invoke the Divine Mother and the Law of Elimination to bless the old energy, take it away, and repurpose it.
Keep breathing because that breaks up muscular tension patterns. Laughter and crying do as well.
Breathe love up from your heart and send it out to the world, in order to experience it passing through you. Love heals.
There are so many other things we can do: Take a stand on ourselves, apologize to those we considered nutjobs, forgive ourselves, etc. But most of those are not appropriate now, when we’re flailing around having lost the ground under our feet. Now we need to treat the emergency.
We’re just getting through the crisis of seeing everything we thought was real revealed as unreal and a great part of it as evil.
We want to experience through to completion our upset at these revelations but without becoming part of a vindictive mob.
We want to stay out of the behavior of our aggressors; we don’t want to act like them even though we’d like to. The self-control we show here is one big visible difference between us and them.
And finally at the end of it all I think the Ring of Fire occurs, lifting us out of all our pain and discouragement.
And for that experience, we pick up the story elsewhere. (1)
