Someday this pandemic is going to end, and people will leave it behind seeing a bright future ahead of them. They will move on with their life unfettered by the past. The current malaise will be like a bad dream dreamt and gone.
However, there is no better time to wake up from the dream and to stay out of the dream then now!
God is an ever-present help in any time of trouble. Right where material sense sees limits and constraints, spiritual sense finds opportunity and possibility.
Right where the material mind would sit around and complain, the spiritually inspired thinker is up and doing productive worthwhile activity.
My wife and I have some neighbors who are quite elderly and fearful of the pandemic. They stay home most of the time. However, I noticed they set up two chairs, 8 feet apart, and a little table in between on their front porch. They have single guests over to chat outdoors on their veranda. I thought, “Good for them! To a degree, they have refused to be isolated by Covid.”
The most important steps we take to stay out of the dream, though, are our metaphysical ones. It’s where our thinking resides that is most important of all.
God is an atmosphere of Love divine in which we live and move and have all being. God is a Mind that gives us ideas that take thought to new inspired places. God is a power that keeps us healthy and strong. God always has a purpose for us to work out, a meaning to understand better, and usefulness to demonstrate. Living with God, keeps us productive, engaged with Life, and protected all at the same time.
There is no need to suffer. Life with God goes on, pandemic or not. Keep living and stay out of the dream!
“When we wake to the truth of being, all disease, pain, weakness, weariness, sorrow, sin, death, will be unknown, and the mortal dream will forever cease” (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 218).
