The second thing I want to share in this Newsletter are some beautiful excerpts from a friend of mine about how to use this “Cosmic Time Out” over the next few weeks. These excerpts come from a beautiful woman named Simran Sigh, a publisher and radio host in South Carolina with a great perspective. She writes:
“Nature has a way of cleansing and balancing itself.
This is the body of life clearing toxins that are floating through minds, hearts and expressions. At the base of all things is a spiritual illness. Just as in the wild, the process of natural selection occurs. This moment feels like nature making space, clearing and balancing.
“We do not like the idea of dulling, death or winter…
but all of these things support aliveness, life and new spring. Times like these are not for the mind to understand; they are of a cosmic proportion. There is a bigger picture, one we cannot fully fathom.
- What better way for life to gently and compassionately heal than to physically isolate everyone so they have to be with themselves, hear themselves, see their own lives, words and actions?
- What greater way to discipline us back to inner connection, that of Source and each other?
What more powerful way to illustrate the fine line between reality and illusion, sanity and insanity, the virus and the cure?
- What more collective way could life orchestrate shifting our systems and structures from how they used to operate into being social enterprises that collaborate, share and co-create?
- What better way to get grown-ups in government, and between countries, to stop bickering and start cooperating.
“When did you pray for the world to stop for just a day or a week or a month so you could get caught up, or get clear, or have a reset? Take what has been given, and watch what you do with it. How you handle this…
says a lot about how you handle everything.
“There is innate intelligence moving through all things…even a virus. Trust that. Life is smart enough to use ‘whatever we create’ for our next best step.
“Conspiracy theories or not, deep state or darkness, virus from bats or engineered… even these things are utilized in life’s grand and divine plan. There can be no wrong: only the judgment of such. Be present to your fear, panic, depression, rage, greed, oppression or love, compassion, kindness, heartbreak and hope.
“Watch how outdated systems are crumbling and new ways of social institutional inclusion are awakening. See the hierarchy of the world flat line so that people stand side by side rather than on a ladder of importance. Feel how the energy of connection births through the mask
of our quarantine to help us move through any prior invisible distancing we used through technology, status and cliques to isolate. Parents are spending time with their children because they have been given it. Schooling in traditional institutions is evolving into home-schooling.
Generosity and caring is building even despite physical distancing. Life knows how to evolve.
“You’ve been given a gift of time… of presence… of space… and of devotion. This is a moment to do your work, feel your feelings and clear through your viruses of the mind. It is an opportunity to let go of the resentments and anger that are really little things in the grand scheme of things.
“Here lay the gifts to deepen into yourself and truly connect with your heart and soul… the art of you that has often been ignored, abandoned or dismissed. It is the disciplined moment to look at how we choose to contribute to the worlds’ ills in big and small ways.
