Here’s a prompt from Writing.com I answered tonight. I’m probably one of the few who can say, “I really love this quarantine.” Not only since I paid off some debt and continue to do so, not only did I get back in touch with my creative side, and took a deep look at my life. I also experienced a lot of kindness and Mother Earth has benefited from our quarantine.
Prompt: For everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose under heaven– Ecclesiastes 3:1-8
Since it is so, spiritually speaking, why do you think our planet now has this Covid 19 pandemic?
Since we’ve been under quarantine, Mother Nature has healed herself. Without our driving, without our pollution, without what us humans do to destroy beautiful Earth, Mama has reset herself. Carbon emissions have gone down, smog has gone down, and every negative trend has turned positive.
Until George Floyd’s murder, the world was getting kinder; even though we had to be physically distant, we could get together online, or we could talk to others from a distance on walks around neighbourhoods. Without gyms, people have been walking around where they have lived for many years, and getting to know their neighbours. I can say with the internet socials, we’ve been able to connect with friends, family, and other co-workers, we’ve been able to be more kinder and gentler. I’ve also gotten to know people even better than when things were my frenetic normal. We have been able to slow down with our frenetic energy
I would also say greed has subsided for a bit too. Everything that needed to happen without a pandemic has been able to happen because of the quarantine. Although putting our lives on hold is annoying, we needed this reset.
There’s a lesson here and I hope others heed it, I know I am and will continue to do so, even when there’s a vaccine available.
