What if.... The virus is here to help us? To reset. To remember. What is truly important. Reconnecting with family and community. Reducing travel so the environment, the skies, the air, our lungs, all get a break. 🌳 . Parts of thw world are seeing blue sky and clouds ☁ï¸Â for the first time in forever with the factories being shut down. . Working from home rather than commuting 🚗 to work (less pollution, more personal time). . Reconnecting with family as there is more time at home.👩🏼‍💻 An invitation to turn inwards — a deep meditation — rather than the usual going out to self soothe. ðŸ§Â˜ðŸ¼ To reconnect with self — what is really important to me? A reset economically. The working poor. The lack of healthcare access. The need for paid sick leave. How hard does one need to work to be able to live, to have a life outside of work? To face our mortality — check back into living life rather than simply working, working, working. To reconnect with our elders who are so susceptible to the virus. The presence of Grace for all. There is a shift underway in our society — what if it is one that is favorable for us? What if the virus is an ally in our evolution? In our remembrance of what it means to be connected, humane, living a simpler life, to be less impactful/more kind to our environment. It was time for a change, we all knew that. And, change has arrived. By ~ Gurpreet K. Gill MD #differentperspective #raisethecollective #motherearth #grown #peace #love
