“Earth has shifted on its axis.” ~ Terrie Wurzbacher

Monday, March 14, 2011. Today I am grateful for Dr Terrie Wurzbacher, who points us to the fact that the Japanese are responding to this horrific disaster with dignity and honor. There is no looting or violence. Thank you, Terrie!


Yes, the world has,indeed, changed this week – both
literally and figuratively.

The earth has shifted on its axis since the Earthquake
in Japan.

There’s been an impact on the United States from this
quake as you know – the tsunami hit Hawaii and California –
we are not separated from the rest of the world as we
sometimes believe or act.

How has your world and your view of the world changed
this week?

Or has it?

I hope it has.

If nothing else we should take many lessons from this
disaster. Sure, there are logistical lessons in the
disaster realm and there will be health lessons too.
These are important because, as we have learned in
recent years (especially after Hurricane Katrina) the
United States is not immune to such disaster.

But, what I’m talking about is the dignity and honor
with which the Japanese people are responding. Sure
they are “shell-shocked” but there is no looting nor
violence (and we certainly have enough video and
on site reporting that would let us know if there were).
What does that tell us about ourselves. It tells me I
am embarrassed that we behave this way in the US when
adversity hits. We pull out our guns instead of our
kindness and respect. We strike out with our fists and
nasty words, instead of embracing each other and reaching
out with open, not closed, hands.

What can you learn from all of this. Please do not turn a
blind eye to what’s going on. Can you even possibly imagine
watching the tsunami wash over your home and city right
before your eyes, realizing you only have what’s on your
body left – nothing else. Reach out to help others – donate
a few dollars, pray for them and even more importantly start
thanking the Universe for the wonderful things you have in
your life. Write in your gratitude journal and if you don’t
have one, go to . The more
positive thoughts and gratitude you send out to the Universe
right now will actually help the Japanese people and country
in ways you won’t even know.

Live your life today.

Be grateful for what you have right now.

Be kind to others. Reach out to others in whatever way you can.
