This blog article is not about the pros and cons of mask-wearing. Instead, I’d like to suggest a possible deeper meaning for this whole phenomenon. All around the world, people are wearing masks, for mutual protection and individual/collective health. When I pass someone on the street here in Massachusetts in winter, I see eyes and a mask—and lots of clothing. COVID has made us almost unrecognizable, one from the other. Sometimes it seems eerie or surreal—a science fiction scenario. Yet people often wave or gesture in a friendly way as they go by, bridging the social distance between us. In our anonymity, we are still human. And maybe, ultimately, that may be the gift of COVID: to show us in an unforgettable ongoing visual that we are really all the same. The masks hide our differences, and our common humanity is clearly visible in our eyes.
All the stars are aligned we are all allowing our awareness to expand.
Together we are finding ourselves exactly where we should be… the moment of Truth. As the Earth has been resting, part of humanity has been experiencing fear instead of awareness. Soon we will all feel an awakening as the Earth yawns and stretches. Our planet’s deep inhale will hold new elements. It brings in a burst of cosmic energy and the ability to expand. With the expansion we will see changes on the surface, and feel quickening deep in the core. It also brings a vast amount of creative energy that has been waiting. In the point between inhale and exhale there is a moment of stillness. This may hold the polar shift. On the deep exhale, all that is not needed in the new consciousness will be released. We will then experience great nurturing for all of humanity and beyond.
