Comfort With Discomfort
I took to the back alley as my walking route. Back alleys in our neighborhood are nothing foreboding. They are neat, tidy, safe and hardly a person you’ll see.
Now I’m not being antisocial by taking to the garage trail. I’m just trying to be obedient. The restrictions on Covid in Ontario are some of the most stringent in the world. On top of that whatever is being enforced as part of a lockdown, timeline wise, has now been extended to last into the month of May.
It is uncertain as to where all this will lead to. The reset in post Covid era will reveal a different world. Will it be a social-economic disaster? We shall see.
One thing is for sure, is that there is need for change. Over a phone call with a friend, Wade, from New Brunswick, we were concurring on the direction the world was taking prior to COVID-19. It really didn’t look rosy as far as we were concerned. For instance, obedience to the laws of nature and a seeking to the harmonization of our natural world were close to nil. That leaves much to be desired. We cannot see a world that is too happy.
And it will always be a place of imperfection and discontentedness. Somehow or other within the gloom of it all we are to find tranquility by going inward. We are to find comfort within the discomfort merely through a connection with the spirit. I am the spirit. I am not the body.
May the Source be with you!
