This pandemic can teach us so many things. Most of which, we will be ill prepared for. The American citizen is a truly blessed person. There is a good reason why we say that God truly blesses America. On my lunch break, as I work from my comfortable home, I reflected on one of the quotes from one of my favorite Solutionaries of our time. She once said:
“When a poor person dies of hunger; it has not happened because God did not take care of him or her. It has happened because neither you nor I wanted to give that person what he or she needed.”
St. Mother Teresa
Many people may believe there is no God, when they see so many people struggling to survive.
If there is a loving God wouldn’t He stop this needless suffering?
After years of personal reflection on this topic, I have come to understand, as St. Mother Teresa herself, God does not interfere with the free will of His people. We are His vessels to serve one another on earth. Just as in the case of a pandemic, God could do away with this hardship but if He did, He would be interfering in the creation he created. The virus is a byproduct of the good things of the nature He created. Just as a storm is a byproduct of the life-giving climate that we enjoy. He does not wish us ill, but when it does happen, as it is destined to do, He expects His people to come together to care for each other.
As I pondered these concepts it brought to mind the importance of the perspective, we each have in our individual lives; leading me back to my studies on the Power of the Wisdom of Three.
The Cycle of the Vision of Life; Our Vision…
- Changes our Motivations
- Which in turn changes our Perspectives
- Driving our desire to change our Location
Which starts the cycle all over again.
The physical, mental, and spiritual visions that we enjoy are unique to where we are, creating internal motivations, forcing a change of perspectives which fuels where we want to be!
During this special and unique Lenten season, during these tumultuous times, when the opportunity of all human contact is being taken away from people not accustomed to living in this manner; shouldn’t we take just a moment to consider that this perspective is the everyday reality of our homeless, forgotten and less fortunate brothers and sisters.
When our lives do return to normal, and they will, I pray that we do better toward their regard and learn lessons from our very short journey, taken in their shoes.
