lost and overwhelmed

lost and overwhelmed
by l. ostandfound

lost and overwhelmed
don't know what to do
even simple things in life become so far removed
taking baby-step appears to come at such a cost
life can be unkind, when mind is
overwhelmed and lost

* the the fast-paced technological world, it can appear as if we are eternally behind -- playing a game of catch-up that cannot be won.

* paper, data, hidden fees, fake news, advertizing, unspoken social pressures, lack of healing touch, sedentary lifestyles, low quality food, fluoridated water, polluted air...

* in an a-maze-ing game of 'no way out', it is easy to understand why some choose (what they perceive) as the only way.

* but is there hope?

* maybe the answer is not 'finding a way out', but rather -- tapping In -- to the Inner resources that dwarf things like 'status' and 'fashion'.  kindness, cooperation, communication, empathy, understanding, non-judgment, forgiveness, Love -- man-i-fest as smiles, safe touch, listening, observing, appreciation, Praise, positivity...

* when overwhelmed, the first step is a-way -- from media and distractions.  secondly, we can take small (baby-step) actions from the inside-out, and watch as upside-down turns to rightside-up-and-In.

* re-Turn-ing Home again.
