12 LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES

Thank you, Caryn, for forwarding the following to me.

HURRICANE KATRINA – THE 12 LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES
by Gary Zukav

"We watched ferocious winds tear into the Gulf Coast, a jewel of a city become inundated, and, with growing horror, the inaction of our government as bodies lay in the streets, tens of thousands clustered without water or food and thousands more hovered on the edge of survival in the wealthiest country in the world, we have been given the opportunity to watch ourselves as well, to observe and learn about ourselves from our experiences.

As relief arrived in slow motion and then in an unorganized flood and we realized that the evacuees will struggle for years to rebuild their lives, we have had more opportunities to learn from our experiences or to react to them – to create as we have in the past or to create differently – and our experiences continue.

Hurricane Katrina gives us OPPORTUNITIES to discover how we are creating and how we can create differently if we choose. Every adversity offers this OPPORTUNITY – to lapse into victim or become a creator.

The potential to shift from victim to creator is very great when we hurt as much as we hurt now. Whether we have watched this massive suffering on television or from a sidewalk at the Convention Center in New Orleans, the OPPORTUNITY is the same – a treasure offered to those who are willing to work for it.

We [Gary Zukav & company] are offering a FREE series of OPPORTUNITIES to help you learn about yourself from your experiences of Hurricane Katrina: HURRICANE KATRINA – THE 12 LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES.

It is available to you now on www.zukav.com. We will post a new OPPORTUNITY every Monday and Thursday mornings Pacific Time, and you can also view previous OPPORTUNITIES (it is never too late to learn from an OPPORTUNITY).

Before you begin, please consider that Hurricane Katrina can be seen as the deliverer of a great end and a great beginning, a great loss and a great gain at the same time.

It can be the end of a complacent life and the beginning of an aware life, the end of indifference and the beginning of gratitude, the end of superficial looking and the beginning of deep feeling, deep insights, deep appreciation, and deep love.

It can be seen as the disaster of hundreds of thousands of people suddenly, abruptly, violently dislocated, many never to live again in the homes they once knew and it can be seen as the biggest infusion of caring into the awareness of the United States and much of the world since 9/11 and the Asian Tsunamis.

How you see it depends upon how you choose to see it.

If you choose unconsciously, you will see through the filters of your fears, including disinterest and apathy, rather than using your experiences to learn about yourself and applying what you learn to create authentic power.

These perceptions – both frightened and compassionate – come to each of us in our own ways and teach us what we need to know about ourselves to create lives of more joy and less pain, more meaning and less helplessness, more love and less fear."

I agree with what Gary Zukav has writen and encourage everyone to visit his website.

Now it is high time to awake out of sleep. Romans 13:11

And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart. Therefore, as we have therefore, let us do good unto all men. Galatians 6:10

May you walk in peace and love,

Clyo
