The last 10 months of living in a worldwide health pandemic created major lifestyle changes for everyone. We are unable to gather with family and friends or worship together. Many loved ones have been ill, many more have died, and grief is part of our daily life. The economic impact on many folks has been extremely devastating. We have seen social injustice played out daily. Now we have civil unrest once again in our country, family, and friends standing against each other.
This is a sad historical time in America. For the second time, our country is divided politically, and morally. In Unity, we know we are all unique individuals with various beliefs, values, and political views. We know that we all are One seeking to find the Truth for all folks to live a joy-filled, peaceful life. As many have heard me say, there is no right or wrong, there is where we are in the moment and our next step forward to grow and change. Many mistakes from both political sides contributed to yesterday’s chaos.
Today, the outer experience many are facing creates a reflection of fear, unrest, grief, and scarcity consciousness. The darkness and chaos seem to be all around with little light shining through. Grief is one feeling many are expressing. The grief of daily life which many have created and the virus continuing has impacted the course of careers, education for self, and/or children.
What stories are we telling ourselves during this time of pandemic, social injustice, and climate disasters?
