Thought Adjuster: “It seems that the ‘you-know-what’ virus threw a mighty wrench in the movie set of your life, affecting its entire cast. Suddenly, its overbooked schedule is coming to a halt and, in the process, gets stuck in a multitude of still frames. How do you feel when you look at them—no longer the actor, but the observer?
“Are you unsettled by this unforeseen time-out that puts you face-to-face with a self you may have been unconsciously avoiding through endless multi-tasking and meaningless distractions? Have you become a stranger to yourself, or are you welcoming the intimate complicity that this quietude is bringing to your inner world?
“What are you going to do with all the bonus time on your hands? Will you seize this mighty opportunity to reinvent yourself, rethink your lifestyle, edit it to empower your life as never before? Which newfound passions will you pursue now that the veil of ignorance and oblivion has been lifted or brutally torn, depending on your modus operandi?
“Why not view this time-out as a sneak preview of the orientation you will receive when you cross over—as a golden opportunity to come to your spiritual senses? What will remain of the sandcastle of your material life once the tides of change have wiped out its apparently solid, yet ephemerous substance? On which foundations—if any—will you remain standing?
“Which type of living quarters have you designed? Were they straw-light or solidly anchored in the enduring values of Truth, Beauty, and Goodness? Did you cohabitate harmoniously with your higher self? All this will become obvious the day you shed your material body. What then? Will you be left standing, overwhelmed with regrets when you finally get to admit to the errors of your material ways? Or will you have already wisely set aside in a stable spiritual trust fund the many dividends of a life focused on the acquisition of absolute spiritual currencies?
“Today can be the landmark of your rebirth—of your reorientation. The planetary standstill provides an unprecedented opportunity—yours willing—to secede from your private time zone and reset your clock according to the universal time zone. Indeed, the day when your life stood still could turn out as the precursor of a great leap forward.”
