‘BC’ takes on new meaning: Before Covid! I vaguely remember the way it was. I wander into Starbucks, or walk into Trader Joes any time I choose. I eagerly greet and hug a friend. I pretty much take everything in the world of entertainment, food, drink and sports, for granted. If I need toilet paper and paper towels, I walk into the garage or hop in the car and off to Costco I go.
Receiving Corona Virus briefings from state and federal leaders, was not on my daily agenda. Nor were world reports on the illness and death toll in America and across the world. I took simple pleasures for granted. I skimmed over the reality that not everyone had discretionary spending money, much less enough for housing, food, medicine and every day living necessities.
The sun breaking through the mist is, that we are already becoming better people, of stronger character. We are more inclined to act in ways that serve a greater purpose and help alleviate suffering. Let us KEEP CARING by continuing to let our compassionate and generous hearts extend to our helping hands. The Universe has an insistent narrative that says, “Look around you, but first look within you. Ask what and listen for where!”
We no longer have the luxury of ignoring life’s larger issues. Racial and other social injustice and prejudice is among us. As are political abuses, the homeless, poverty stricken, mentally ill, hungry & hurt. Let us form a chain of collective consciousness by awakening to who we are and why we are here. It is time to answer the Universal call to inclusiveness, oneness and generosity of Spirit.
A Personal Prayer to Speak: I come out of human darkness and into the brilliance of the Divine Life. I acknowledge there is One Presence and One Power. I experience Its greater influx throughout my life. My resistance, procrastination and excuses are replaced with selfless service wherever needed. I give thanks for the Divine guidance that points me to where the Essence of the Infinite are the actions I take that make life better for others. I gratefully accept and see, that this Is the way It really Is!
Loving blessings galore,
