It’s fascinating to watch world events right now. Here in the United States we are seeing something being played out that is highlighting the shadows like never before.
The Coronavirus pandemic has been serving up opportunities to humanity on a level that most people can’t see yet. It’s highlighting imbalances in systems like economics and politics, business and healthcare. It’s no coincidence that the pandemic has disrupted the distribution of goods and services, and has created economic breakdown on a global level.
Like all viruses, it is attacking places where the weaknesses have existed for a long time. Like most viruses, it has been dormant, waiting for the right set of circumstances to be activated.
When the human has unresolved issues, it takes its toll on the physical body, weakening the immune system. When political and financial structures become imbalanced, the same happens to them.
With the global event in full swing, it is becoming harder to ignore where the systems are no longer working. The covid virus has highlighted other viruses. Political, social and economic.
’IT’S MY (POLITICAL) PARTY AND I’LL CRY IF I WANT TO.’
On a political level, Americans are being shown the corruption, abuse of power and hypocrisy of both political parties even more glaringly. They can no longer try to cover up the self-serving agenda from either candidate for the presidency.
If a candidate is coming from that self-serving place, and has been bought by Corporations, it will be revealed in full color like never before.
And with the most recent sexual assault allegations leveled against one party’s candidate, the elephant in the room can no longer be ignored. Although it has been by the mainstream (establishment) news media.
Have Americans painted themselves into a corner? They are now being asked if they will compromise their own integrity, and their best interests to put another bad choice into office. Or will they trust that there is another option?
That other option is a man who happened to understand for quite a while now that this country would do much better with healthcare for all. Look at what the virus has done with the healthcare system, now that so many people need treatment for COVID. It’s highlighting how disastrous that system has been.
And what is interesting is that this virus does not discriminate. People from all economic classes, from billionaires right down to the poor, are needing medical care.
This man has said for years that employee medical sick leave needed to be vastly improved. Look how Coronavirus is now creating huge issues with sick leave.
So, a swath of Americans have a choice now. They can continue to make decisions from a place of fear, and elect another bad leader, whether it’s a Republican or Democrat, or they can take a leap of faith, and do the more sensible thing. The thing that their heart is telling them to do.
This isn’t just about politics though, it goes to the core of human consciousness. It brings up in each human questions they need to ask themselves. What is truly important to them? What do they value?
And it brings up one of the most important questions, are you really ready for change?
People say they want change, but these times put that statement to the test. Because change requires letting go of old, outdated systems. It requires choosing from the heart and soul, not from fear and survival.
Many people truly believe that by playing it safe at the voting booths that good things will come. But they will discover that all they will be doing is perpetuating the old system, where the imbalances of power continue to shift further and further toward the abusers of that power.
The rampant misogyny that exist in both the current President and the other candidate (one is more sneaky about it) will become glaring. A couple of potentials can happen. People will continue in their cognitive dissonance and accept the misogyny, considering it just one of the sacrifices they are willing to make. Which by the way, misogyny is the most widely accepted of prejudices.
Or they will become so disillusioned with their leaders that they will finally look within themselves for the leadership they desire.
And from that place there will emerge more balanced leadership for all.
IT’S ALL GOOD
Viruses are designed to clear out the body. And that’s happening with many people. And those who are ready to leave the planet will use this as such an opportunity.
We see how it’s highlighting global imbalances, and on a personal level, it highlights personal financial, emotional and physical imbalances in the human. They could ask themselves, where am I not allowing more abundance into my life? What shadow, what part of me that I am not loving is this virus highlighting?
So on a few levels, the Coronavirus is really humanity’s self-inflicted wake up call. But only if they can get past the fear and see it for what it is.
