The New Normal for now…
Well this hardly feels normal but then again maybe the world could use a slowdown, to remember and re-integrate practices in life that have long been forgotten or dropped entirely. With so much stimulation at our fingertips every hour of every day I would venture to say that many of us were constantly running around and most times on empty, perhaps this is the Universe’s way of cleansing out these toxins.
It’s not surprising that there was so much instant gratification available in the world until now, anyone trying to get anywhere had to be constantly on that wheel to stay ahead and relevant in the “human race”. With these options now on global pause it gives us all new opportunities and while love may not be the answer to getting this new normal under control I believe it is the answer to getting through it.
- Loving life and humanity enough to ensure you don’t take risks.
- Moderating what you actually need so there is something for everyone.
- Sharing what you can, when you can with those who are struggling.
I’ve always been so focused on my goals and dreams that when I get over one mountain I don’t take the time to celebrate and bask in the glory of my achievement before I start looking for the next mountain to climb. While this is a good motivational plan, there are many steps that must be checked off and if I don’t take the time to enjoy the little victories how can I appreciate all that it took to get me there? This global pause in a way has been good for me because I don’t have a choice. #self-reflection, #faith
Everything in its time and everything in its place, we cannot manifest what we cannot embrace.
My visual analogy of the Universe as a whole is like a body of water, each of us the singular droplets that make it up. How intimidating would you believe a droplet of water was compared to an ocean? You see divided we do not have as much power but connected we are a force to be reckoned with.
It is the human “ego” that divides that connection, the part you fight with to maintain equilibrium. Things that are so plain and simple become convoluted and messy when the ego gets involved. It’s really easy to express authentically but it is rarely done. Maybe now we get so much time with ourselves we grow a greater appreciation for connecting with others. Maybe now we have compassion and empathy for those in difficult times and less fortunate. Maybe now we respect and love our environment more so it can be bountiful for generations to come.
Maybe this world of anything and everything all at once and all the time is merely overwhelming and things couldn’t have continued so fast paced and addictive. What can I say I’m a curious thinker?
So being inside I am bound to watch a movie or two and the one that was recently on again was the movie “Lucy”. I’d seen it before a few years ago but the part of the movie that got my imagination going then and now was the part about the percentage of the brain we utilize.
A further extension of this was the theory regarding cells, choosing immortality or reproduction dependent upon the environment in which they reside. I found this equally interesting and was very curious about the possibilities and parallels within our existence and environment.
I am by no means fully or even half versed in these topics but I do like to dive deep at times into a variety of thoughts while staying open to any and all perspectives and theories. The reason this time brought this movie to my mind is because when things occur whether isolated or global my mind wants to look for the reasons and answers. Sometimes I feel it is in the way we live, the way we treat others and the way we respect our environment.
With all the other awful things that go on in the world how well are we really taking care of each other?
This time, which I’m hearing a number of different timelines being projected for is creating a big change in the world around us. The question is when all is said and done will we all go back to how it was before? Can we? Or is it possible that we create something new, something better, something positive?
Maybe this global pause will help us all re-ground ourselves and come to comfort within our hearts so we can start to see and connect with the glimpse of heaven that lies within all of us
