Today a group of us from all over the world (including the USA, Japan, Germany, and Philippines) joined in the mighty purpose of healing our minds so we may shine our light and love brightly to support and heal ourselves and our brothers and sisters. I shared a story from my background working as a pediatrician and how all my medical training of over 35 years led me to a profound discovery that I found in the teachings of A Course in Miracles: Health is inner peace, and healing is the acceptance of peace.
But how do we stay peaceful in such unpeaceful and chaotic times?
How do we handle our fears, worries, anxiety, sadness, and even anger that arise during these times?
I share about how Lesson 76 from ACIM provided me with a beautiful framework to see the whole experience of Coronavirus from a different perspective. That it was here to teach me that I need to truly look at where I feel I will receive my safety, security and comfort from; and all the ways I judge the world through the egoic lens of separation and expectations; and all the laws the ego has set up. Laws about health, medicine, nutrition, exercise, economics, friendship, and even religion. I am learning that I don’t need to judge these laws, or even resist them. So, taking medicine, hand washing, as well as precautions such as social distance – all are all okay. But I will not find my peace here. I need to first go within and realize that the only laws that are truly real 100% of the time are the laws of God (Love) and it is here where I can rest. It is here where I find my true security, comfort, protection, and perfect peace. Then all the outer symbols (medicine, money, support, and so forth) will be taken care of and orchestrated in the most beautiful way for the highest good of all concerned.
Wow! What a powerful lesson that can be a medicine we can take in daily and as many times a day as we need with no side effects 🙂 In fact, the lesson encourages us to remember this four to five times per hour because we are in a state of forgetfulness and can feel almost mesmerized by the laws of the outer world.
You can listen to the full audio here.
*Please note that my father was trying to get on the call to join so there is a phone ringing a couple of times in the first few minutes of the recording and again around the 43-minute mark! I am going to forgive the laws of technology (and my beloved Papa) and hopefully this will be a non-issue next time. 🙂
In addition, there is a beautiful reflective poem written by my new friend, Gurpreet Gill, that invites us to see this situation from a more expansive, above-the-battleground perspective.
What if the Coronavirus is actually here to help our evolutionary process?
