To say I needed this would be like saying water is wet.
Which it is, just as chaos is order and there’s bad in good and good in bad. ☯️
With everything going on, I keep saying: kindness, compassion, and gratitude can spread more quickly than any virus. We learn this truth in suffering. It is the pain that makes us ask the question that gives the answer. Pain is often our greatest teacher. It’s also our own mother’s pain when we are born. It is part of life, and suffering is usually caused more by trying to avoid the pain than accept what is.
What is right now is scary, confusing, uncertain.
At the same time, this virus just holds a very true mirror to our faces. We can die at any moment. We can suffer at any moment. But in every moment, we have a choice. To be here for your life, to experience the rainbow of life, and to appreciate the life you have or survive the life you don’t want. And in the next moment, you make the same choice again.
Every moment is a chance to live before we die.
My only fear is to have not lived before I died. So I live and love knowing I’ll die only because I have lived.
When things feel like they are ending, it is because it is time for a new beginning.
Every moment is an ending. Every moment is a beginning.
In any beginning, a new choice can be made.
Kindness, compassion, and gratitude can spread more quickly than any virus.
