We are in “troubling times” for the human drama playing out in our Earthly lives. The world is spinning with news which, when seen through fear filled eyes, seems scary and negative. I wish we could “just get along” and live in Peace where we support one another… BUT, we seem to be swimming in human drama and major conflicts. It is NOT time to stick our heads in the sand. Our spiritual pursuits of acceptance and equanimity are severely tested. Wow, what can we learn from this???!!! Maybe, we will pull together and back away from the abyss, learn our human lessons, and “get along.” Sadly, this is not the habit that humans have practiced in our “recorded” history. We keep forgetting that war, anger, conflicts and ignorance lead to pain and discomfort.
Perhaps, from a spiritual perspective, this is why over 7 billion of us have shown up in our current incarnations. The “Adventure Travel” experience from the higher realms where we get to test out our wisdom and put on our Spiritual Red Cross jackets and run willy nilly to pull other pilgrims out of the mud called human life in 2022. Perhaps we have shown up to watch the cataclysm of human history. One thing for sure, we can test our resolve for beaming love in the face of anger and fear. We can reach out and be of service. We can rise above the fray of emotional negativity and grab the hands of fellow traveller to assist them as best we can…
At times like these, I am reminded of the book by Viktor Frankl, “Man’s Search for Meaning,” where he recounts his year as a Jewish man in Auschwitz Death camp in World War II. He was one of the survivors who not only told the tale of the atrocities of war but found a way of being of service from the lessons he learned in this manmade hell on Earth. He suggests that we look for “meaning” in the experiences we have undergone and then use this gained wisdom to be of service to our fellow humans. And, yes, he celebrated the miracle of finding a green blade of grass growing in the dirt of this death camp. Finding a Joy in the darkness can be a profound lesson in the most difficult challenges we experience. “What does not kill us, makes us stronger,” is an expression of what is possible after enduring life’s darkest times.
We have come to serve in some way. We have come to witness. We have come to raise our consciousness. We have come to experience life, yes, even the hard times. And, we have come to be tested in our navigation of these challenges with the limitations of our three dimensional “human” minds… On a spiritual level, these are amazing chances to allow our highest consciousness to rise to the surface and for us to be the beacons of light (and love) in these dark and difficult days. YOU are a miracle. YOU are up to the task at hand. YOU are here to learn and to serve…
So, take a deep breath. Know that you are loved! Find the Divine Spirit within your consciousness and light the way to brighten our experience of the human drama. No matter how you choose to respond in these times, you are PERFECT! You are in a role that only YOU can play and you are doing an amazing job of being YOU!
Where possible, lead with Love. Namaste… and look to celebrate the perfect souls you bump into as you tread your path on this Earthly plane.
(And, nobody said human life would be fair or easy… except in the movies and fairy tales…)
