We are born into these bodies, and we have only one choice for our entire lives. Every moment, every day, just one choice.
Fear or Love. In this moment, do we choose to come from fear or from Love?
We all experience fear. It is human. During times like these, all of us whirling with concern during a pandemic, the choice presses against us calling us forth with intensity.
One moment and then the next, friends. Being responsible around the coronavirus, staying home out of respect for elders and others we care for, is a loving thing to do. One moment, you get to decide what Love is asking you to do, and then the next...
Though there is pain for so many people who are facing death and afraid for other reasons too, times like these present an unusual opportunity to choose Love.
It is what you're made of, after all.
One moment, and then the next.
