I sense this all as an opportunity to shift, the quantum leap we have been expecting for the last few years. A shift from Fear and Entitlement to Love and Appreciation. Fear and Entitlement are perhaps our natural human state and Love and Appreciation come out of our evolved state of BEing within our core Essence. .
Why is our Fear so strong in any of us at any time? Fear is inherent in the human animal as Life is precarious. There are no guarantees you have a next moment or the conditions it exists in. Prey and hunter mentality is about the continuance and ending of Life. We may be at the top of the food chain but that only means we have the power to destroy or enrich Life on this planet more than other species.
Love and Appreciation creates connection and community. They are what give us the ability to balance and harmonize the events in our lives.
Many live their lives from within their Fears and sense of Entitlement. Conspiracy and Blame keep us small and subject to being dominated. They do not serve us except as warnings. Those accepting no responsibility for their actions and those they are in charge of create harm and confusion for the rest of us. They trespass on our laws of integrity and honor and fairness.
We are being brought down by a cell. one little tiny cell that has the ability to manufacture itself at a rate we can not currently keep up with. It has no agenda except a design to spread and replicate. Our sense of Entitlement and Arrogance can not help us here. You can not reason with it. It is both specific and common now. It is manifested reality, perhaps manifested destiny for many.
One truth of history is that people and plagues have come and gone. This is Mother Nature who was here long before us and we hope long after us. We navigate living with viruses and bacteria in us and all around us daily. Some are useful and nourishing and others compromising.
If they were smart, civilizations used what they learned at the time, to the limits of the technologies of the times to create new ways of coping with their fears about Life. If not they died out, maybe forgotten, maybe built upon in later generations of the survivors.
I live in a reality of Oneness, as do my colleagues and students. I daily sit in present awareness as best I can and connect as Consciousness to explore my Self and inner relations to the All.
I am noticing that in our social isolation, many more are finding each other in connection, in Oneness as the outside world of our social behavior routines collapse. We will be different.
Habituated behaviors are collapsing. Life right now is not the same as it was 3 months ago or will be in another 3 months. Emotions long suppressed are and will be expressing. It will take awhile for people to comes to terms and work out this new terrain of systems and services. Who will be leading the way and who will be obstructing Life for all of us.
New beginnings and opportunities are in motion. We are becoming free to become creative and resourceful and helpful as we see new needs that we are all sharing in. In states of potential, companies and people are retooling and finding new meaning in new adventures and possibilities in work.What happens when we receive meaning from our work? When what we do is important in our being who we each are.
Some will get it and some will not.
Let yourself Love and Appreciate Life and honor those around you who are insecure about living.
Living each day as it might be your last is the truth about Life. We have no guarantee. BEing present now lets us shed our past behaviors and move out of the shock that can surround us quicker.
What do you now have time to notice about being you?
