Why We’re Feeling so Overwhelmed: Part II

And thank you for such a well-organized, thoughtful piece on the manic nature of our world, and NATURE! Yes, we forget we are PART of nature, and not witnesses to it, or characters simply living within it. My awareness of a stronger relationship with nature came in 1980, when I was 10. I started getting migraines, to which there was no medical explanation. I also developed an obsession with the weather and earthquakes and disasters and such. After Mt. St. Helens erupted that year, my headaches ceased. But I seemed tapped into all of the energy. No one in my life, in the Midwest, could explain it. I felt something deeper in me, but it would lay dormant for years.

Feeling Overwhelmed?

Are you finding that the practices that have helped you become centered and calm before, like exercise and mediation, aren’t enough to sustain emotional equilibrium for very long? Like sometimes you can loose your cool completely within five minutes after getting up from a blissful hour of meditation?

Oh, yeah. I have first hand experience with all of the above!

So What the Heck is Going On???
