Despite the coronavirus turning our day to day lives on end, the fact remains that there may be a lot of good that comes from it if we can get out of a limited egocentric perspective. This article illustrates just one example of this.
We, humans, have a limited perspective and tend to view ‘good’ and ‘bad’ only from that perspective. Losing work is terrible; getting married is good; getting divorced is terrible; winning money is good.
However, pandemics, natural disasters, global shifts, and spiritual awakening all come from a different perspective. It is not that the human view is wrong or bad, but it is limited and focuses on human needs. The divine aspect is not limited and, in a sense, could care less about individual human needs and wants, or even humanity as a whole.
To hold and integrate both perspectives simultaneously is what I call enlightenment. Not one, or the other, but both. Divine and human, integrated, whole, not one, not two.
