So what are your latest thoughts???
Has anything changed in your thinking?
Are you buying the narrative…from either side?
What statistics can you believe? Is this really a virus? If not, how come people are dying, and what are they dying from?
Does quinine or hydroxychloroquine really work? And is it safe?
Lots of questions here, and fake news too!
So who do you believe?
May I posit a solution?
But to do that, you must know yourself first. Otherwise, your mind will “make up things.” It goes round and round and usually ends up opposite of what would be good for you!
And how do you know yourself???
By Learning that You are Loved.
How about this quote from a major religious text:
Nothing can separate you from the Love of God! Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow… No power in the sky above or the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God
Pretty clear isn’t it?
Next step, you have the right and ability to Love Yourself, because You Are Loved!
Remember Love Yourself as You Love Your Neighbor? I turned it around, but the meaning is the same.
So Love Yourself first, so You can have Compassion for Others!!!
It also turns the narrative around from outward to inward-looking. That way all the junk going on outside is in the background. Besides what can you do about all the confusing and unknowable stories out there?
The only thing you can really change is You!!!
And when you change, others have to react…and they do…both positive and negative, but it makes them make a decision. Do they like you or not? Decisions are the basis for growth!
So do you have to go out there and “change the world” or “have an impact?”
That shouldn’t be your main focus.
Loving Yourself develops compassion and empathy for yourself and then others. And then they notice and change happens.
That’s how it works…always!
So let’s change the World by Loving Ourselves!!!
