Katrina

Katrina means pure. This is appropriate on many levels. The hurricane was a pure expression of nature exposing the hubris of mankind and causing pure terror and death - the cataclysmic beginning of a new cycle. Perhaps what we can learn from this experience is some lessons about ourselves that are hard to hear, as well as confirmation of the strength and dignity of humanity as we all do all we can to help each other at this time.

My own philosophy - start with love and let it grow. Even if you can't directly contribute to the disaster relief effort - there are many people who need your love all around you. They could be in your kitchen, in the house next door, driving that car in front of you, organized into a soccer team that needs a coach, walking down the sidewalk with a heavy load - you have a chance to make a difference for everyone you meet. It can also mean starting to love yourself. I can't remember who said "Do what you can, where you are, with what you have." But it is a great truth that positive action creates a positive growth cycle, spinning and expanding and gaining energy until it is as powerful as anything nature can throw at us.
