Greatness in the Time of Covid
We’re so sick of it. That’s something upon which I believe we can all agree. We shudder at the mask-air-raid when we go out in public and are heart-sick at the extent of loss – which encompasses a vast spectrum.
But there YOU are…this person with your own power. Wow. You are still YOU and YOU can still rule your life. The world has lost its marbles but there YOU are: YOU can choose what you will think, what you will do with your day, what you will say, what words you will text, how you will maintain your home whatever the size and your things, however modest or grand. YOU still determine what you will eat and drink (or not) and what you will do with your organism (or not). YOU are still the arbiter and this is the last outpost it seems.
That’s still a good bit of freedom that you may or may not have tomorrow or six months from now. I’m not bringing that up to be all doom and gloom but to nudge you to use the vestiges of freedom YOU still have within your grasp to do great things!
How much greatness can you squeeze into this hour? How much space do you have left to choose?
It’s enough to assert discipline into your day to train hard physically, to think the most beautiful thoughts, to connect with Creator-Source and grow your precious, priceless living SOUL! It’s enough space to forgive your past (whatever and whenever that maybe) and to bring a heart full of kindness where there has been anger or even unrequited rage, it’s enough to bring self-control where there has been foolish, life-defeating over indulgence. There is enough space to become GREAT even as the walls close in around our freedoms.
There may come a time when you will lament “If only we had the freedom and space to think freely and spend our free time as we would wish…”
Hey, I’m an optimist. I believe good will conquer this dystopian nightmare. I really do! But I’m also a realist and I see the capitulation to fear and ignorance and it boggles my mind.
So I am busy preparing myself for any outcome. I won’t stand by and let my soul family be incubated like something out of the Matrix trilogy or have our human memory wiped like something out of The Giver. So I say a few words here and there hoping they’ll land on fertile soul…’er soil.
God bless and keep you, Everyone. Keep striving. You were meant to push through these boundaries, to move mountains! If there’s still time in your day, use it to grow your soul, feel your soul, grow your power, feel your power, breathe deeply and connect with the Creator-Source. If it’s late in your time zone, dream deeply and plan to spend the whole of tomorrow doing everything in your capacity to touch pure greatness, even (especially!) in this time of Covid.
Let’s pursue greatness in this time together!
In loving service,
