I no longer wonder how long it will last, but how long we will endure.
We are living in extremes. One side of the world weeps, while the other side burns in fever. One element, without the other, leads to imbalance. Just like in the human body. Too much yin swallows life force. Too much yang, burns it up. Yet, somehow, for now, we endure. Endure to hold onto extremes…
We reflect what we create.
Denial can be a powerful force of destruction. Eyes resist focusing on what brings discomfort.
Turmoil stirs the Earth, but it also stirs the self.
How often do we forget that what we sow within, we reap outside of us?
I find myself growing tired of excuses. The unchecked ego filled with self-affirming prophecies refusing to go inward to see outside the self with clear eyes.
I find myself growing tired of the selfish mind refusing to remember that we are here to take care of not only the self, but the whole.
I am tired of those who insist on being right at the expense of life. Denying a crisis serves no purpose other than for the ego to feel justified.
We are taught by our spiritual leaders that all life is sacred. That we are just one part of a whole. We are taught interconnectedness and to do no harm, yet the ego’s search for separation has led to a world that burns and weeps extremes. A world where more than 4 million people have died from a virus that is mutating out of control because there are so many hosts that refuse to believe it is real.
Refuse to see that inaction can cause harm.
Our Earth was created with free energy and that energy has never left us. Yet we burn her lungs for profit, and drill into the body that feeds us for industrial gain. Temporary gains leaving trails of disease and death.
We are, undeniably, a selfish lot, but we don’t have to be.
Small gestures can go a long way…
Getting a vaccine can not only save your life, but countless others.
Wearing a mask if you are at risk of harming your own life and others, is not a violation of your personal rights, it is an act of ahimsa. It is an act of grace and kindness.
Tending to the planet is not an act of weakness, it is an act of strength. It is an act of ahimsa. It is an act of grace and kindness.
