Going shopping with a friend seems an unlikely scenario for a miracle to happen but the thing about miracles is they are always unexpected. I had asked a friend to go shopping with me on Wednesday. I have never been a ‘good’ shopper because I don’t like shopping. Consequently, I know nothing about which stores to go to for what I need. Then once I’m in a store I can rarely find what I’ve gone there for and I even have trouble finding staff to help me once I’m in the stores. Really! Shopping doesn’t come naturally to me.
Overnight the world has changed for everyone.
Can we find purpose even in this moment?
One of the many things that brings me joy is the interconnectedness of everything; you, me, him, her, and those guys over there. The world is rife with individualism, it appears impossible to heal the concept that myself is separate from yourself. But then something like, oh say the coronavirus as an example, comes along and makes it really clear that we are interconnected, that we are all exactly the same. I am just as susceptible to the virus here in Australia as somebody is in England or China or the USA.
