It is quiet. I cannot hear the sounds of traffic nor hear the laughter of children. Every so often the sounds of nature intervene with cricket chirps and bird chatter. Families are hidden away inside their homes. The police stop any drivers to investigate destinations and reasons. They are deeply committed to fining anyone who break the laws of isolation, leaving home for anything other than medical reasons, speedy food purchases or essential jobs. The world has gone on a massive go slow program to counteract a catastrophic event of humanity. The years of my spiritual study have pointed to this worldwide viral calamity as has the bible in its last pages. The difference is that the world will not end and we will prevail. There must surely be a reason for this. What can this be all about?
It is Easter without festivities, and although frustrating in a myriad of way, this down time is an opportunity to consider a new future. In many indigenous cultures, it has been prophesized that there would be events that create unity of mankind, bringing people together. It is said that through adversity, mankind can learn gratitude and compassion for each other. The Universe has much to offer in the way of teaching us how better to respect Mother Nature, animal life and each other. What can we learn?
It happens to be the anniversary of my teenaged son’s death over Easter. My life changed and opened the doors fully to my pathway of spiritual learning. My son when alive, insisted he must leave his life on earth early, in order to help. I did not rebuke him. It frighteningly, felt true in my heart and indeed came to pass. There was purpose to his loss and I then studied much about the ways of the Universe as the driving force of my spiritual journey. My son continues to give me hints that this event will ultimately provide us with food for thought. There is much to discover about treating each other with more respect, compassion, love and acceptance. Money and power has ruled our world and we have stripped Mother Earth in the battle to achieve this. Will we change?
Perhaps we can help the world by taking a moment to tune into our higher wisdom, our deepest intuitive thoughts and see the need to change our direction towards a kinder, more loving existence. We can take note of how we can individually become the best version of ourselves by following our passions and using them to offer service to improve the systems currently in place. My son kick started my journey into faith, hope, love and improvement. Maybe the prophecies are correct and this global event is geared to help all of humanity to discover integrity, warmth, care and growth. Our front line workers are digging deep and need our support. The world grief is huge and requires compassion. Opportunity for love abounds. Can we reach this better future?
