In the final analysis, the questions of why bad things happen to good people transmutes
itself into some very different questions, no longer asking why something happened,
but asking how we will respond, what we intend to do now that it happened.
~ Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
I wrote this paragraph a couple of weeks ago. Today it serves as a reminder:
Change is a constant. We all know that. But transformation is something else again. By definition, it means that something familiar is dying and something new is being born – though its nature is still unclear. At this time, transformational forces are in play at many levels from a microscopic virus to global weather patternnnzs to the US government in between. It’s an understatement to say that this time is profound. And, at the same time, we live each day with as much ‘normalcy’ as we can muster.
How are you _(fill in the blank)_ during this time?
– managing stress – both for yourself and for those around you
– getting better at what you do
– spending your extra time (if you have it)
– feeling from day to day
– grokking the magnitude of the pandemic
– staying safe and well
I eagerly look forward to hearing from you if it feels ‘right’ to respond. Just hit reply.
Blessings and Fare Well!
