It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything on my blog because, I’ve not been writing, I’ve been listening. Listening for information, listening for clarity, listening for truth. What have I heard?, what have I learned? I’ve heard frustration, anger, uncertainty, restrictions, suffering, fear and hope. I’ve learned that in uncertain times we tend to lean towards fear more than hope and, I’ve learned that if we work together we can combat most anything.
We are living in a time of great uncertainty, with a virus that has never existed before, and that we have little protection from. This experience naturally breeds fear, and fear is a natural part of our human condition (fight or flight). Fear can move and motivate us to action, it can also shut us down, and kill us. Having our world change so quickly and dramatically is scary. The days of sheltering in place, working from home, wearing masks and gloves has provided us with a difficult transition. We are being asked to test our thinking daily, by living in a different way, and we are being asked to embrace transformational change, finding newness, oneness, joy and some peace, even in the midst of struggle. This event is shining a bright, (sometimes unflattering) light on who and what we are, and want to be.
We can do this!
