Of course you remember the Ohio Players’ “Love Roller Coaster”, right? We used to listen to it til the very end to hear the girl screaming. Oh, you know how these things get started, someone tells someone else that “really in truly for real” when they were producing this song there was a girl off in the background who had hot honey poured on her and you can hear her screaming…where do we come up with this stuff?!? But I digress….

The last couple of weeks has felt like I’ve been on the roller coaster of life. I tried to Google a story that I’ve heard shared before (but I couldn’t find it so if someone knows it please share with us…..) with the premise being that sometimes when we hear and see something we think must be really bad but then when we turn it just an inch or so in another direction it turns out to be good but then when we walk around for another view it may be really bad after all but then…and so on and so forth. Well, that is how my life has been feeling lately. I’ve got the blessing of awareness and introspection and connection with a higher source AND I’m feeling hyper sensitive lately and afraid for the future but grateful for what I have in my life at the same time.

It’s just a really bizarre place to be. I don’t know that I’ve ever been in a feeling/thinking place like this before now. Seems like there are several people I know, with different backgrounds then me, who are also on this roller coaster with me. I hope we’re not on the very back seat is all I’ve got to say!! (and if we are, somebody please pass back the bags…)

From all the data that I have put together from all kinds of sources it seems that there are more than a few divergent avenues of belief that are in agreement on this one: We humans are really in a huge growing stretch right now. It’s like…..well, I’ve never given birth but I have been born so I would imagine where we are all now as humanity is in the birth canal of life and so we can feel that things are pretty hectic and scary and that some huge changes are fixin to come upon us but we can’t necessarily “see” what is ahead of us. Most of us are just giving this all our best guess.

I remember reading “The Autobiography of a Yogi” by Paramanhansa Yogananda and I think in that book he talks about being aware of himself even before he was born. But most of us do not have that level of awareness about our being ness (yet) so you’ve just got to wonder how our brains and hearts were interpreting the whole birthing process. You just know that our experience is filed away somewhere in some cell way back in our brains only to come awake when we hit a spiritual crisis or go through a huge humanity change such as the one that many of us are experiencing right now.

With that said, it would make sense to me that if you are experiencing the roller coaster of life, that we could consider that that pre-fetal brain cell is awake and alarmed and so we need to do everything that we know how to do to soothe ourselves and take good care of ourselves This uncertain time shall pass. Our inability to understand shall pass. At some point the roller coaster is going to come to the finish line.

One of the best ways that I know how to soothe myself in times like now is to connect with other people by sharing my true being and to be honest about where I’m at…even if it feels like I’ve got my behind up in the air and my head between the seats as the roller coaster is heading down hill at full tilt boogy. Heck, who knows, someone more creative than me may be able to describe this feeling I’m having in a much more fun way. But that doesn’t really matter, what matters is that we be real and connect and remember that we are never all alone.

I’ve said it before, so I’ll say it again…..the problem in front of us is never as big as the power behind us.

How are you doing today? What’s going on with you and how are you seeing things?
