Awaken From Our Sleep

“All human things hang on a slender thread, the strongest fall with a sudden crash.” — Ovid

It’s no surprise there’s still a lot of uncertainty given the situation with the pandemic. People’s health is at stake, not to mention their livelihood. This can cause panic and fear because we doubt our capacity to cope with what is taking place.

Reflect on this for a moment. Is it the fear of the unknown that frightens you or doubting you will make it through the crisis? Be honest and examine what is taking place beneath the fear.

Sometimes, we try to avoid negative emotions, but they can be useful if we deal with them instead of running away from them. This is the essence of people’s dilemma; they are not well equipped to manage negativity because they stow it away.

So, when we don’t know what is going on in our lives, the best we can do is be open to receive what is for our highest good. There must be a lesson humanity needs to learn within this experience, otherwise it wouldn’t be happening.

Blaming does little to move us forward. It keeps us trapped in our circumstances and whilst it may appease our suffering for a little while, it disempowers us in the long term. This pandemic is highlighting the consciousness of humanity in its current state, which is steeped in fear and anxiety.

Therefore, we are being forced to awaken these qualities within ourselves, and must heed the lessons sooner or later.

Are you comfortable with this idea that life will present us with an experience or series of experiences to awaken us from our sleep? Perhaps you faced something similar, whether it involved losing your job or the breakup of a long-term relationship? Think back to the lessons gained in the time that followed?

It is my experience; we can never go back to our old way of life when faced with a situation of this size. Something awakens us to our greater purpose, and unexpectedly we are put on the path towards our destiny.

What if this experience is foreshadowing the same awakening for humanity? I don’t know, nor do I believe anyone else…
