Coming Out Of Lock-Down

One thing I asked of the Lord, that will I seek after: to live in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to inquire in his temple. Psalm 27:4

Jesus, looking at him, loved him and said, “You lack one thing; go, sell what you own, and give the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; then come, follow me.” Mark 10: 21

But the Lord answered her, “Martha, Martha, you are worried and distracted by many things; there is need of only one thing. Mary has chosen the better part, which will not be taken away from her.” Luke 10: 41-42

Beloved, I do not consider that I have made it my own; but this one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead. Philippians 3:13

To further the conversation

We have been living in the strange new world of COVID-19 for what seems a long time now. We have been living in the world of isolation and social distancing in the midst of a global pandemic. So, what have we learned so far? I have been meditating on that question a lot. For me, I would say I have learned a great deal more about humility. I have been confronted once again with the true nature of my fragile being and my complete dependence on the Spirit. I have seen panic and fear, but I have also seen courage and compassion. I am learning what I value, not in the abstract, but in the real time of my own life. I am learning what would remain if everything else was taken away.- Bishop Steven Charleston

You (Teresa of Avila) lived that beautiful balance between active service and quiet contemplation. Teach us to be of use in this troubled world at the same time we cultivate joyous intimacy with the Beloved who lives inside us. -Mirabai Starr

Life is not the way it is supposed to be. It is the way it is.  The way you cope withs it is what makes the difference.  -Virginia Satir

My grandma who is in isolation accidently dialed a wrong number yesterday and spoke to a random lady also in isolation for twenty minutes about their lives. They’ve exchanged phone numbers to keep in contact and meet when this is over. -unknown author
