Lots of wild things are happening around us now. The Delta variant keeps Covid a factor in our lives. Major fires are burning, sending smoke across the entire nation. Hurricanes are battering cities. If you sit and watch the news, there is no end of things to worry about. Yet what seems daunting to the fearful mind represents a huge opportunity to the higher mind. Every thought, feeling, word, and action is a choice between fear and love. The greater the fear, the more powerful the transformation when we choose to trust.
Are you wondering what company to work for? Who to hire to improve your house? Who to marry? Which friends to associate with? Which product to buy? Every day we have to make decisions about who we will work, play, and connect with, and which people and organizations we will support.
Many of us have lots of questions about what 2021 will bring. When will the pandemic end? Will I return to my job, or will I have to reinvent myself? Will the kids be able to get out of the house? Will I be allowed to go to a concert, travel, or visit my relatives? Can I hug people I love, or will everyone important to me be relegated to a little rectangular image on my computer screen?
What will happen during the coming year depends on who you think you are.
My neighbor Rick is a retired homicide detective. Nearly every workday for 25 years Rick went to crime scenes where someone had been murdered. While you might expect that Rick would be quite hardboiled after such a grisly career, he is a very gentle, sensitive man. He cried when he learned that one of our neighbor’s dogs had died.
