When tragedy strikes and nothing makes sense, when human hearts are broken, when family is devastated, when communities are shattered by horrific violence, sometimes all we can do is come together as a community and pray for those suffering such a horrible loss.
Sometimes the best we can do is pray for their healing and the healing of those close to them, and pray for their ability to rise and somehow find meaning once again in their lives.
Sit for a moment and be present with your breath in and out through your heart's center.
Breathe in and out through your heart's center focusing on compassion, love, and peace until you can feel yourself filled with that compassionate love and offer that out to the parents, children, extended families, and the community of Sandy Hook Elementary School, and Newtown, Ct. Stay centered and be present to the sensations in your body. When you are ready, bring your awareness back to yourself, place your hands over your heart and again find that compassionate presence for yourself. Lift your hand up and offer your loving presence to the Universe.
Embrace peace with yourself, live peace in your life, teach peace by your example!
My prayers and thoughts are with you all.
