The rash of terrorism around the globe is a problem of highest concern. The attacks in Paris and Brussels make it seem as if we are not safe anywhere. Any sane person has to wonder, “What is our world coming to?” How, then, do we deal with terrorists? How do we get rid of angry, insane people who hurt others? How do we stay safe in a world so filled with danger?
I’ve always thought of myself as having a positive attitude. Not all the time, of course. I think we all have our good and bad days, the latter making positive thinking quite a bit harder, those days when if someone says ‘Think positive’, well, I’ll leave it to your imagination.
It can be so suffocating when you feel yourself fenced in by emotions, perspectives, thoughts and beliefs that feel like they are squeezing the lifeforce out of you. Anxiety feels like that. Depression feels like that. Energetic sensitivity to difficult weeks feels like that.
As you grow into an adult, you begin to observe your past, your present and your ideals against those that you have been surrounded with for your entire life. From your family, friends and cultures, you evaluate what still feels true to you and what you want to discard.

Recently I initiated myself. I made clear, conscious, heartfelt choices and decisively changed my world. We can all do this. Decisiveness is a powerful aspect of energy in focus. It is like choice, but to be decisive means you've eliminated other options. It's an all or nothing thing. Meaning, you're committed. You've put both feet on the other side of the fence and you're not looking back.
