This morning as I walked into Panera, I went for my usual seat at the counter, where they keep the wall plugs, so I can recharge my iPad that seems to be losing juice more frequently (that’s another story). I dumped my stuff on the counter. The barista I know there allows me to sit at the counter, even though it breaks the six foot rule. They are getting a little more lax these days.
But a woman at the next table informed me that the counter was off limits . I smiled at her and said, “it’s ok, the barista lets me sit here.”
To which she responded, “But it’s not six feet.”
It may sound insensitive but I thought most people at this point are relaxing more about the virus. I was wrong.
I waved an apology and found another table which fortunately had an available outlet. So it all worked out.
Except……well, it pissed me off. Don’t get me wrong, I totally respected the rule when I was asked to, and I respect the woman’s request, of course. I wouldn’t want to live in a world that didn’t.
Except….I was pissed off. And, I know why that is. It’s just a little impatience.
I understand why the Coronavirus is here at this time on the planet, and that it’s not random. I understand that if someone contracts it, they invited it in, for their own purposes, even if they were not consciously aware of the purpose.
on a level their human mind can’t fathom, they need it to help shift their consciousness. The virus is here at this time to assist humanity to shift their consciousness, which has been stuck.
I also understand these masks we are asked to wear do very little to prevent infection, even if people could be randomly infected.
I understand that most people get themselves so distracted from the purpose of the virus that they wear themselves out.
A handful of us understand this, those of us who have gone through our awakening and we, no wait, I’ll speak for myself, I have never worried about contracting the virus because I’m not of that world.
But it’s sometimes hard to be the observer of that world that still believes something from the outside can randomly insert itself into their experience.
But having said that, it’s human nature to feel vulnerable to things happening to us from the outside. I feel that way about some other things in my life, even as far as I have come in this awakening. But I understand more than ever that those emotions, the fears, the concerns, are from my mind. And are not from my heart or my soul.
And that even though those emotions are very compelling, it doesn’t mean they are my truth.
I am becoming more consciously aware that whatever we are experiencing on the outside is within our own energy. And I’m becoming more acutely aware of that as time goes on.
Or maybe another way of putting it is, things and situations are attracted to us proportionately to whatever predominant frequency we are giving out. Energy is always serving us, even if it doesn’t seem that way. It’s serving our joy and it’s serving our fears. It doesn’t discriminate.
If we use the example of the woman who asked me to sit elsewhere this morning,…..if my predominant energies were combative, we probably would have gotten into an altercation. Verbally, or worse.
But I’m no longer into drama, at least not to the degree that would get me a shiner, or throwing of chairs.
So my point is, and I do have one…..well, you’re reading this so you’re among the ones who understand what I’m presenting here.
There are many perspectives of the same situation. The practical, nuts and bolts one, and the broader one. Most people are in the nuts and bolts perspective. They can’t see the bigger picture on an energetic level.
But they are beginning to sense that life as they know it has changed forevermore. They are confused. And they feel defensive, more so because they feel so vulnerable.
But they believe they are vulnerable to something out there, and there’s no end in sight, so they believe.
Which is where we come in. We understand that there is the bigger picture, and that we create our reality with our own energies. We have been through what humanity is going through now.
Our lives are not picture perfect, but we do have the broader perspective, and just by being here at this intense time on the planet, we can show others, through just enjoying life here, sans the drama, and the fear, how it’s done.
