With Rev. Jimmie Scott
Traveling the road ahead is never devoid of peril. Primarily, because peril is as much a part of the human condition as joy and jubilation are.
In a manner of speaking, we are hardwired for joy and jubilation. All the world’s great holy books speak volumes about their impact on our lives and the good that is derived from joyous experiences, or jubilant activities. But peril also teaches well. Peril has a slightly harder edge, but because of the harder edge one is less likely to ignore its warning.
COVID-19 is proving to be a great peril. According to science, it is intelligent enough to adjust its behavior. Which lends credence to the belief that we live in an intelligent universe.
With intelligence there is implied responsibility to do what is right. When you are having a hard time trying to discern what’s right, give your ego a sixty second break. The Spirit will respond.
We know social distancing helps slow the spread of the virus. We know wearing a face mask is a helpful safety measure and has less to do with freedom than it has to do with personal ego.
We have traffic laws for the good of all and it is becoming increasingly clear that it’s going to take all of us to overcome this peril. So, may we each do our part.
Safe travels my friend…
