. You want to be free of the COVID blues? Choose gratitude. Choose to shift your magical magnifying mind onto the blessings that surround you. Watch the blessings bloom.
The only thing that will truly refresh the soul is the belief in something Bigger than All of This. Bigger than the President, the pandemic, the social unrest. Bigger than the election. Bigger than limited thinking. We need a bigger God.
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.
