Finding Power in the Pain…

Posted By: Randy GageJune 28, 2021

It’s been a sad, depressing week for me.  To remain positive, productive and in prosperity consciousness, I’ve created a “force field” around myself to filter out negative beliefs, haters, trolls and breaking news tragedies.  If you do this, it allows you to get news on a second level removed.  You can know what happens but choose not to watch the video of George Floyd dying, planes flying into the World Trade Center, and other soul-crushing moments like those.  Unfortunately, my forcefield was pierced with the collapse of the condo tower in Surfside. 

It’s ten minutes from my home, I’m intimately familiar with the neighborhood, and I went by that building every day on my way to work for years. Without warning I viewed a tweet that showed the building collapse from a security camera and the image has haunted me ever since.  Making it worse, the weather has been terrible here, hampering the recovering efforts.  The night of the collapse and the following night, there were severe thunderstorms in the area.  Each night I awoke five or six times and found myself staring toward what remains of the tower in the gloom, thinking about the agony of anyone still alive in the rubble and the brave first responders who are searching for them.

Yes, we can bring coffee and sandwiches to the rescue workers and support the fund for the people affected.  And yes, we can and must hold out hope, and send prayers and thoughts of hope, healing, and highest good.  But I still can’t help from feeling helpless and sad.  You might as well, or experienced similar feelings for other losses and tragedies closer to you.  Even after studying the principles of prosperity for more than 30 years, I still find it difficult to deal with catastrophes like this myself, let alone guide others through the process.  The only advice I can suggest:

Reevaluate Your Priorities

If you’re looking for validation from Instagram post likes or finding purpose in putting out virtue signaling tweets to shame others, life is going to seem pretty empty for you, and losses will affect you more painfully.  Is closing that deal really more important than your child’s birthday?  Is a new watch, NFT, or pair of shoes really going to make you happy?  Is that snarky tweet the best way to espress your humanity right now?  Look at every area of your life and work and ask yourself, ‘Does this really matter?’

Start Living in Gratitude 

The days are long, but life is short.  Don’t wait for tragedy to tell people you love them.  Stop taking sunrises, sunsets, kittens, puppies, flowers, hugs, laughter, exercise, sleep, joy, health, and the people in your life for granted. Celebrate the moments.  When you do lose loved ones, let their memories be a blessing. 

Find the Hidden Blessings

Hurricanes, tsunamis, tornadoes, and earthquakes are how our planet regulates and maintains itself.  It creates an ecosystem that allows life to flourish.  There are always hidden blessings to every tragedy if you look for them.  Nobody likes getting a flat tire, but that’s how the guy who owns the tire store sends his kids to college.

Honor Those Who Are Gone

Please don't take this post to mean you can’t be sad or there’s something wrong with experiencing sadness.  That all is part of the grieving process.  It’s okay to be not okay.  But it’s not okay to stay there forever.  The best gift you can give to those we’ve lost is to resolve to live your best life – moving forward toward the highest possible version of yourself.

Peace,

- RG

  1. Great post. You're a kind soul, an Empath and we must learn to care for ourselves while caring and having empathy for others. Love and Hugs for you friend.

  2. Thanks for sharing your hearth my friend. That it self is inspiring. Thats brave.

    Love you. My prayers are with you, and all my friends and family in our dear Miami area.

  3. I had a great aft yesterday, talked to this guy at his winery, lunch on his restaurant patio and he asked me how I make money at what I do, and I said what Keith Richards said when asked how Chuck Berry changed his life and he said, that's when I knew what I wanted to do, I didn't dream I could make a living at it, but I would do it even if I was an accountant.. probably would have been better off, he said with a smoke filled chuckle rasp.. I'll write about food and wine till I kick it.. and love doing it.. feel so blessed to have found something I love to do.. and for sadness it's a drag.. but as I once read, how would you know you were happy if you had never been sad?? Remember reading Brave New World how sad that people were addicted to Soma.. can't you just be happy naturally?? cheers David

  4. Thank you for these words and thoughts. Inspiring for live, i can feel it. Best regards from Austria, Rita

  5. I know where these condos are. Anthony worked for an engineering company and his job was to inspect high rises and submit a report to owners or HMO what needed to be done to make the building safe. . He inspected that building and knew exactly what needed to be done years ago. to make it safe, but they didn't follow through that time either. maybe this will prompt the other building owners to take these reports seriously.

    Thank you for your post. I am sharing. ❤

  6. Dear Randy!
    Greetings!
    You are right in many ways when it comes to free will and critical thinking.
    Therefore, it is all the more surprising that you ignore the facts.
    Vaccination against the fashionable flu is already being raised to the rank of not medical, but political requirements.
    If the presence of a vaccination becomes a prerequisite for admission to work, before school, visiting shops and banks, then where is the consideration of the free will of the individual.
    This is a clear compulsion, violence against a person and the destruction of his prosperity.
    Take the example of Israel.
    The unvaccinated live like outcasts.
    The police give them food coupons (limited range!).
    And the vaccinated are still forced to wear masks and take tests.
    Many vaccinated people get sick.
    What do we see?
    Deception, violence, fear of disease, hunger, cold and poverty.
    Bad rich guys bring humanity to its knees.
    And here it is interesting: Will the good rich guys try to wake up themselves and awaken the other sleeping people?
    After all, everything indicates that the vaccine contains particles with digital information and each vaccinated in the nervous system will have their own individual digital code, the presence of which will soon become the main requirement to be able to "buy and sell".
    Check it out for yourself: Revelation 13:17. We are one step away from the events described in chapter 13.
    In early July, the world elite is going to conduct training on how to act in the event of a global cyberattack (based on an interview with Klaus Schwab).
    A similar event was held on October 18, 2019
    (Event 201).
    A month later, the fashionable flu knocked out the residents of Wuhan.
    It is logical to assume that it would be good for us to have at least a 2-week supply of water, dry food (which can be consumed without processing), canned fish, candles and an alcohol burner so that we can make ourselves tea or coffee.
    I assume that the gas can also be turned off (the bad rich guys are very funny people and very much like to cruelly joke and mock those who are not in their circle).
