Ever Since the pandemic started 2 years ago, the world around us has been painted with dark colors. There has been so much fear, anxiety, loss all around us. Not a day has gone by that we don't hear bad news happening in our neighborhood, with a friend or a family member. We are sitting on pins and needles waiting for the next news or the next bad event to occur. Going to restaurants, shopping or traveling is not fun anymore. Having a simple coffee outside with a friend can be as easy as attracting the deadly virus. So what has our life come to? Do we have to search for outside activities to make our life meaningful or do we have to search from within?
Philosophers over the past thousands of years have always mentioned that there is light after darkness. It's inevitable that after experiencing dark days, the better days are ahead of us. There is light at the end of the tunnel. But when is that light going to shine upon us and make our days and lives better. How long do we have to wait and when is all of this going to be over!
Obviously, no one has the answer as to when the pandemic will be over and our lives will go back to normal. I believe that everything is in Divine order and God has a plan for our lives . There is one solution to this pandemic and that is to light the spark within ourselves. This is a great opportunity to find out who we are, what we want to do with the rest of our lives . There is no doubt that we have all experienced an external change, but now it's time to change ourselves from within and decide what kind of life we want to live from now on. Who we are, how we want to conduct ourselves with our friends and family and what our ultimate goal is in life.
As we spark the light within, we can finally shine who we are and in turn make the world a better place one day at a time.
