As this pandemic has unfolded around us, perhaps you have felt afraid at times, or at least concerned. You have probably had to reshuffle your life in some ways that are good or difficult, or both. Maybe you have put yourself down for getting worried or tried not to think about things that are scary.
As I have been contemplating my own feelings in this situation, I have come to think that both fear and love have a place. If a mac truck is barreling down on you, you get a surge of fear and jump out of the way. The body reacts to protect itself automatically. This pandemic seems to me to be a kind of mac truck that our bodies react to trying to protect us. If fear makes you wash your hands and saves your life, it has its place.
Let us pray for those who are suffering at this time and offer their welfare to the shelter of the Lord of Love, the Divine Mother, the Infinite presence. Om shanti, shanti, shanti.
