It’s just like the Force in Star Wars. Do you want to be a Jedi or a Sith? Do you want to broker in love, hope, faith, justice, courage, prudence, and temperance? Or do you want fear, jealousy, arrogance, anger, lack of control, chaos, and confusion?
. 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.
Humans are resilient creatures. We adapt – on the outside. What’s happening to us on the inside?
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.
Sometimes my faith is enormous like I’m ensconced in a fluffy white cloud, floating above all the misery. Sometimes my faith is small, like me.
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.
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.
We have to acknowledge and accept that frustration and anger are the same thing.
