A Pandemic’s Silver Lining

An Inspirational Message

 “We will not go back to normal. Normal never was. Our pre-Corona existence was not normal other than we normalized greed, inequality, exhaustion, depletion, extraction, disconnection, confusion, rage, hoarding, hate, and lack. We should not long to return, my friends. We are being given the opportunity to stitch a new garment. One that fits all of humanity and nature.”—Sonya Renee Taylor 

We do not need more words to grasp the intent of Sonya Renee Taylor’s words of wisdom. Nonetheless, I will offer mine.

What has inspired me during this pandemic was my awakening to how fragile humans are, how flimsy civilizations have become, and how tolerant Mother Earth has been for several thousand years. This pandemic is a warning. Our governments were not prepared, and some did not care. Our health systems were inadequate, and our medical scientists bewildered, though caring. But worse of all, many societies worldwide, were virtually dependent on their leaders as to what to do, yet hesitant leaders were clueless when they found out, especially in the industrial nations. This pandemic demonstrated the calamity and absurdity of who we are, and how insanely stupid we’ve permitted most governments to politicalize and scrutinize the truth of the pandemic matter.

Being home on self-quarantine has offered me the opportunity to be mentally and emotionally silent enough to hear my inner voice. Listening to my intuition has propelled me to understand better my purpose in Life, and my mission, which boils down to my love for all my brothers and sisters worldwide.

My quest and mission to help generate peaceful governments that desire to exists for the sake of its people, respect for Nature and the evolution of Spirituality for humankind hold fast in my heart. 

Should I ask how? Remember the joke: How do you make God laugh? Answer: You tell Him about your plans. But did you know how to make God laugh hysterically in tears? Answer: You tell Him how you will do your plans.

God’s gift to every human embraces our creative gifts. But the majority of humankind sadly follows and surrenders their gifts to those who govern. Mother Earth grows impatient with our nonsense. This pandemic serves as a wake-up call. Humankind needs a make-over; it needs to have heart-driven leadership, or does it wait for another deluge?
