The New Journey

It’s funny how things work out… actually, no, funny isn’t the right word, that’s just a stock phrase which we’re all so used to using; and not just phrases, stock everything – stock lifestyles, stock clothing, stock emotions.

The word “funny” would be a huge downplay over the monumentality of what is happening across the globe right now, and what is happening within every person that resides on it.

There are two very opposing results coming from this pandemic. On one hand, thousands of lives are tragically being lost, millions of livelihoods are being destroyed and fear has swept the globe in a way that we never thought possible. But on the other hand, the entire world has leveled; a sense of unity between all of us on this planet is in formation and a huge shift within every individual is taking place.

Not one life has gone untouched in one form or another.

There is a hugely positive shift that is putting people back in touch with their values, with their sense of purpose, and reconnecting them with not just others but also themselves. This reconnection is coming from a place of love and a place of certainty within us. I believe we are all calling on the very cores of our being right now, as only now with our world so fragile and uncertain, do we realise that we are in fact the only certainty. And it is from this place of love and acceptance of ourselves and those around us that unity between all of us is being formed.

As much as we have preached to others and been trying our hardest to live by our own truth, so many of us have never been able to fully get there. And honestly, deep down I believed that we were too far gone to ever get back to where we once were and who we truly are.

But, here we are.

It’s taken our entire lives as we know them to be suspended, our “stuff” that we placed so much value on and defined ourselves by to be stripped away, and the things that we really care about but took for granted to be threatened for us to finally get to our hearts and recognise ourselves.

Whether it’s mother nature, God, or some conspiracy theory; that is merely a detail in the grand scheme of things. This pandemic is the catalyst for the formation of a better world for all of us to be in.

We have had the wake-up call and we are just getting started on our new journey where we can welcome peace, joy and happiness once again into our lives now that we truly know what we need for it – which is very little and all of it free.  We are currently in education; a crash course in love, in values and in sustainability.  We have the opportunity to make our planet a healthy and thriving environment to carry out our lives in now that we can fully see the consequences of our actions.

The planet is indeed healing; the skies are blue, the water runs clear and the birds have never chirped away so happily. There is beauty all around; in nature, in human connection, in ourselves. And every single one of us has ability to serve others expecting nothing in return, and every single one of us will be served by others in the very same way. This is what makes the world go round and will provide a beautiful life for us all.

  • I love what you have written and I really do hope this pandemic will lead us to better lives in the future, but sadly, I fear that once it’s over and people have to recover the losses they’ve faced, extended mortgage periods, higher taxes etc, we will all very quickly be in the same position as before, with the same lust for money and material items and the virus, like all the others before it, will become a distant memory. If I had my way, we would all go back to a subsistence lifestyle, with our own little plot of land, growing our own food and having no need for social media and the material lifestyles that are thrust upon us daily by big businesses. Maybe one day, something bigger than COVID-19 will force the human race to finally accept that going back to basics, helping each other, getting rid of all material belongings and living in peace and harmony would be the best thing for all of us.

  • The saddest thing will be if we go back to the way we were. I do fear this too for all of us and also for myself. We are all reliant on each other to keep things flowing in our lives and to earn money to put food on the table which instead of doing honestly could wind us back up “playing the game” and that game sees the pushing of more materialistic and shallow content across media to force people to feel inadequate and need things which turns us away from our true values and purpose and winds us up chasing stuff we don’t need all over again. I so hope we remember all we are currently learning during this period and I hope our awareness increases enough for us to put necessary boundaries in place so we can live much happier lives out of the other side.
