One thing has become crystal clear over the last few days and weeks…
Our HUMAN FAMILY is connected to a degree that we rarely get to tangibly experience. COVID-19 has shown us we are more similar than we are different.
No matter where we come from, our ages, or how much money we make…we are all vulnerable and our lives can be disrupted more easily than we’d like to admit.
We all long for health and life for ourselves and our loved ones - and we all experience pain.
Strangely enough, this global pandemic is giving us an OPPORTUNITY. An opportunity to embrace the powerful truth of our interconnectedness.
If we spend time MEDITATING on our shared humanity, we can cultivate new degrees of empathy and compassion for one another.
These past few days have helped us recognize that if each of us does our small part where we are, we will (not can…but will) have an impact, not only on our neighbors around us, but our neighbors on other continents across the world.
This isn’t a nice theory anymore, it’s become our tangible REALITY.
Let us never return to “business as usual”.
Let this trial, however long it last, teach us once again:
We LISTEN and LOVE.
Like Cain, we’ve been killing our brothers and when questioned, we begrudgingly reply, “I don’t know. Am I my brother’s keeper?”.
The answer is yes.
We are each other’s keeper.
We are connected.
We are family.
