Here is what the coronavirus pandemic has taught us thus far:
We need to take greater care of our health and boost our immunity.
The environment will flourish just fine without us. During lockdown, many nations have witnessed increased fauna sightings in what are typically human-populated areas. Additional testing of water and air samples will inevitably reveal the environmental effect of decreased human activity.
It has led to an increased awareness of how important it is to take care of the planet we inhabit.
Discarded rubber gloves and masks that litter our streets pose a health and environmental hazard.
The only certainty is change. Be grateful for today as there is no guarantee that tomorrow will be the same. We face uncertain times, and with that we are being called to draw upon our strength, courage, faith – regardless of what it may be – resilience, and one another.
Mother Earth is crying. She has reached a breaking point and we have ignored her plight for far too long. However, the darkest hour always comes before the dawn. Sometimes it takes a CRISIS to inspire ACTION. Maybe we were too comfortable; destroying the planet, taking for granted the things that Mother Earth so selflessly provided us. She asks for nothing in return as we humans take without thought. Sometimes it takes a wakeup call like a global pandemic for us to go inward; to reconnect with our divine selves. Out of the darkness is always born LIGHT. We are being given an opportunity right now for CHANGE. Do we continue in old ways- or do we drastically reevaluate? We are not separate from her. Just as the heart is not separate from the body, humanity is not separate from the Earth. Every decision you make is a choice to create a better world to live in, or to destroy. It begins with “me”, the individual. Our actions, our choices, our decisions. We have an opportunity to reflect on this pandemic as the mirror that it is; showing us what needs to shift. We need to change the way we are living on the planet. We need to be more aware of our impact on the earth and its inhabitants. We need to be conscious of the pain and suffering we cause. We can only destroy for so long before balance needs to be readdressed.
Are you ready to be a part of the shift?
