Humans are resilient creatures. We adapt – on the outside. What’s happening to us on the inside?
We should all be wearing psychic masks to avoid spewing our discomfort, pain and fear on others. Blaming other people or institutions (like the government) isn’t going to work.
Humans are complicated, they are layered, like Ogres. Maybe people are ogres. We hungrily devour those who’s words and behaviors are incongruent with our value systems.
Let us use this time to cultivate kindness, compassion, and tolerance. Let’s not allow this time to divide us even more so that we were before.
When all of this started back in the second week of March, I was terrified, mystified.
Weeks went by. We experienced grief.
Here’s where we are today:
Acceptance isn’t the same as absolution. We don’t have to condone the stuff, we have to accept the stuff.
Pervasive and corroding, fear slithers in like a snake and weaves its way into the fabric of our everyday lives.
Fear prevents us from seeing how we can help. It blocks us. We can’t know where the need is because our compulsive self-preservation consumes us.
When we take this approach of being a community of people experiencing this together, we can shift from fear to responsibility.
We have Divine power, love, and sanity. Use these things to connect and encourage each other.
