It’s not an easy time right now. Uncertainty and fear are growing. Confusion over who and what to believe abounds. We don’t know what is going to happen next.
In times like this, our baser instincts tell us to protect ourselves and those we love. And, sure, that’s important. Very! But the age where we could lock ourselves up with our clansmen has passed. The world is different now than it was 50, 100, 200 or 500 years ago. We are too many. Too interconnected.
Yes, we need to isolate ourselves right now to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and protect our loved ones, but more than that, we also need to make ourselves available to help those who are vulnerable and in need. So don’t buy guns (or even crystals!). Buy supplies (yes, even toilet paper!) for yourself AND for your elderly neighbor. Offer to take out his or her trash. Ask your imune compromised friend if she needs any medication. Be positive. Help. Share. Spread love! Not fear.
Dickens said, “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way…”. And maybe he was right!
For in every moment there exists the duality of great goodness or great despair. So in this moment, let us work for goodness, for love, for hope, light, and for each other.
With gratitude from all of us at Crystal Heart!
