We are all still staying at home, and in this process, we may feel isolated. However, the truth is we are not alone. We are all in this together. Although we are more confined than most of us would like to be, it does give us the opportunity to connect to loved ones, and talk to people we may have not talked to for a long time. For example, I talked to my cousin who lives in another state, whom I hadn't verbally spoken with for several years. Even though we connect by email on a regular basis, it was nice to hear his voice! It put a smile on my face and love in my heart, to hear how his family is coming together in this present situation.
Thank God(dess) for technology! A friend called and stated she wasn't a fan of technology, (phone, computers, etc.), but admitted she would have to get over herself because if not for technology, we would not be communicating or getting information about how things are happening.
The truth is, we are not alone. I'm hoping this crisis will allow people to be human to each other again, and show kindness in ways we haven’t lately because we have been too busy, being busy.
I experienced this the other day while walking my dog. A dog behind a fence was barking at my dog. So, the dog-owner came out of the house to see why her dog was barking. Although I was across the street from her house, we were able to have a conversation about dogs. This woman was a complete stranger to me, but we connected, if only for a few minutes.
So, one of my hopes from all of this craziness is that we do realize we are not alone and we are all in this together. I can’t say that enough! There is a God(dess), or whatever you believe your Higher Source is called, that has a helping hand in the bigger picture, that we know nothing about. Our job is to keep focusing on the positive as much as possible, to meditate, and to pray. I will continue to say these two things as a reminder, because the more we can raise our collective consciousness, the sooner things will get better.
We need to pray for the people in the service industry. Namely, the people in ALL the businesses, who show up so that we can still have what is needed for us to be healthy and safe. Let us send continued blessings, love, and light to these wonderful folks, so they can stay healthy and well also. One of the things I make a point of doing when I do go out to the store, the post office, or the bank, is say, “Thank you for being here!” I do this because I want them to know how much they are appreciated. When I say “Thanks”, it puts a smile on their face. Let us all get in the habit of doing the same, and also reminding those we love, how much they are appreciated as well.
