We can’t have everything and nothing belongs to us anyways. Spiritual truths. Quarantine truths. We’re all having to let go of so many things during this time. Oftentimes, when we let go of one thing, we gain something else. I pray that the things we are letting go of on the physical level, we will gain instead internally: strength, patience, increased compassion.
For something new to be born, old things must die. If nothing dies there is no room for the new. I felt this when I was pregnant with my son. I experienced so many small deaths during pregnancy. And I didn’t let go easily. I didn’t want to let go of the ways I was used to being. I had to let go of productivity, the ability to work hard, my energy, my own body. All to let something new be born through me.
So hopefully all these deaths we are experiencing will allow new growth. And we will birth many new and even more beautiful worlds. Certainly, we are being strengthened, certainly, we are learning patience, whether we like it or now. Hopefully, we are learning to surrender to the process of life.
I remember holding my son when he was just a few weeks old and realizing that he didn’t belong to me, that I was only being trusted to take care of him for a little while. Life is like this also. Nothing external from us is truly ours. The things that are really getting us through these times are the internal qualities: patience, surrender, compassion, and love. Those are ours. This external world, it’s not ours but we get to take care of it.
I pray we are learning to take better care of ourselves, our loved ones, this planet, and all beings.
We can take care of each other. We can love each other. We can surrender and surrender again.
