How are you doing today? How are you feeling, dear friend?
It seems there are ebbs and flow with our emotional landscape which seem heightened with the advent of the Coronavirus. Days where we feel more settled into this new normal and then days where there is a wave of fear, grief, sadness, or anger that just seems so heavy.
Yesterday evening and today were heavy days for me. The trigger for me seemed to be specifically a concern for the escalating number of seriously ill patients with Coronavirus in NYC, where my parents and other close family members reside. Then I also received an email sent by the NYS Department of Health asking for physicians, nurses, physician assistants, and other health care workers to sign up to volunteer our help during this crisis where there is a shortage of medical personnel.
I watched the clouds of doubt, fear, and worry move through my mind. I felt these emotions as well. There was a heaviness in my chest and lungs. My throat felt sore. My whole body felt tired yet the mind was not at rest.
This morning, as I sat in prayer and meditation asking for help, I was unsure if I could even facilitate the zoom session for today. What did I have to share? How could I pretend to be peaceful when I was feeling heavy, afraid, and uncertain?
And what I heard in prayer from the Beloved Presence was this:
I am not asking you to pretend or hide your emotions. I am asking you to show up just with your willingness.
Just willing to share your beautiful heart that feels the pain of the entire world and wants to be of service.
Your willingness to show up as you are, where you are, how you are.
Knowing that I am there with you, guiding you all the way.
Beloved child, you are not alone. I got you. And all your loved ones and the entire world you see.
So today, I showed up as the Beloved asked me to show up. And it was truly a very healing session for us all. A few of the participants expressed how they were feeling heavy as well, another powerful witness that we are truly interconnected, One Mind, joined by Love.
I was also inspired to read from A Course in Miracles from Chapter 13, Section 3 where we explored this profound topic about how we are afraid of love. It is like the famous quote from Marianne Williamson:
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
― A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of “A Course in Miracles”
During our meeting, we also experienced a very powerful meditation about the Beloved Presence/Master Healer guiding us through what seems to be a very dark cave. The Presence lights our way but we need to truly link arms and hands with all our brothers and sisters so that we may safely cross the darkness into the light and experience a profound healing. What we experience is a light that is beyond this world, something we have never experienced because it needs an inner vision, the spiritual eyes.
