“Such spirit born individuals are so remotivated in life that they can calmly stand by while their fondest ambitions perish and their keenest hopes crash; ; they positively know that such catastrophes are but the redirecting cataclysms which wreck one’s temporal creations preliminary to the rearing of the more noble and enduring realities of a new and more sublime level of universe attainment.” [UB 100:2:8]
Thought Adjuster: “The above statement appears to you as very prophetic. Recently, many planetary affairs have come to an abrupt standstill due to the severity of the pandemic threat. This state of worldwide emergency affects each one of you, disrupting your daily grind. How are you coping with this sudden turn of events?
Are you entrenched in an unbecoming victim mentality or have you nobly surrendered to what is beyond your control, doing your best to adapt to the planetary gear's downshift that led to the shut-down of many of the elements that composed your lifestyle? Did the disappearance of familiar landmarks trigger a personal identity crisis?
This drastic change of scenery can turn out to be a much-needed clarion call for humankind to come to their ‘spiritual senses’ and objectively reassess the essentials of righteous living. It may be similar to a Near Death Experience—an event that temporarily lifts you out of your down-to-earth mentality, presenting you with a revealing bird-eye-view. Such a personal shake-down can be the catalyst for your spiritual awakening. When such a conversion experience occurs, there is no coming back to your previous operative mode.
Crises can be inner door-openers, prompting you to develop resourcefulness. Worst-case scenarios may lead you to discover the Best in you— the reassuring presence of your Divine Indweller. They act as the midwifery of your spiritual Renaissance, facilitating the radiant emergence of your eternal soul.
From that positive take, despite the discomfort of your current predicaments, you can experience surprising surges of profound gratitude. You grasp that they are the dispensers of high-grade spiritual nutrients—not on a silver platter but in your unpretentious field-canteen.”
