Actually rarely does, but we’re often called to become stronger and more resilient, and this is one of those times nothing’s ever wiped us out. We’re part of the essence of life itself. When we quiet our mind, we start to recognize the miracle of life within us and, ironically, what we really need is usually just below the surface of our fears.
So the question is: how do we make our way through these uncertain times, and the answer, of course is: we must use our god-given power of faith. This is not a religious statement. It’s, simply a statement of understanding our true nature.
Look. We’re all born with faith. We don’t have to learn faith because the truth is we couldn’t function without it, I mean think about it. Basic things you do every day. How do you drive down a highway with nothing but a painted, yellow line, dividing it from crazy people in cars? They’re, hurling head, forced you at 65 or 70 miles an hour, and you know that every single day people cross that line they killed innocent people.
Just like you – and I we all know that some percent of drivers are drunk. Some are not gonna be paying attention; they’re texting. Somebody actually be falling asleep, so you know the facts. The facts are every single day.
This happens and people are killed. In fact, 1.4 million people die this year in car accidents around the world. That’s more than 3,200 people a day that’s like a 911 every single day around the world, and yet we still drive when I’ve shutting down driving, we’re, not saying.
Oh, my god. We can’t drive, let’s. Keep everything driving to crank, keep those numbers down. Why cuz? We have faith that doesn & # 39. T mean that we don’t work. Gon na be smarter, doesn’t mean we don’t prepare ourselves.
It doesn’t mean we don’t. Do what’s necessary? You know what all of us inside know that this faith is required for life to be fulfilling for life and move forward. Listen without it, you can’t leave the house.
So why do we drive our cars? Why don’t? We just stay home cuz, we know the consequences of not leaving the houses, they have no life, no faith equals no life, we know being stuck or frozen and fear is not an option.
So what do we do? We choose to move form? We choose to be certain in the face of uncertainty, that’s. What faith is we choose to have faith, and you know that in our core we’re. More than anything we’ll ever face know this.
We know we can handle whatever life brings to us. We always have, and we always will – that is the power of the human race. We know what the possibility of challenges are paying in the future. Keep us from living our lives today and working to build a better tomorrow.
You know what else it’s possible to transfer your certainty when you grab it and activate it down to human beings and help them it’s also possible to produce uncertainty and unnerve them. It comes to in our voice.
It comes to in our physical presence vacuum happen in someone’s, physical presence. They can hear your voice from a distance on an audio and a voice message they can see that face. They can feel it in our thoughts they cannotice in our writing.
In our emails, our attacks and everything we’re part of why? Because human conviction has a viral effect, it spreads one. You can see this with infectious laughter. It’s. Somebody’s laughing your tail off.
You look might feel that way after was like stopping, you start to laugh, but maybe you’ve been in room. Somebody starts to yawn a few minutes. Two or three other people yawning stop yawning. We see it in the stock market, whether it’s, running up or tumbling down there’s, a herd mentality in most human beings.
When we run certain look there’s, other people to figure out what to do. That’s. What most people do, but that’s, not what leaders do leaders produce surgery within themselves? Now don’t get me wrong.
We all have a two-million-year-old brain. I do we all do in its art survival instinct that gets triggered by these fearful and uncertain moments. So what do we do to protect ourselves? Do we freeze or do we fight? Do we give up or push forward? We either lift each other up or we drag each other down by our level of certainty or lack thereof.
You know what it’s, all a choice. So today, maybe it’s time we become conscious. You become conscious of your power and remind yourself and those around you that the human race is resilient. It’s, flexible its flowing beyond imagination that doesn’t mean we don’t, educate ourselves and repair ourselves or train ourselves for challenges.
Of course, we do. Anticipation is power; it just means we need to discipline our fears and every day we got ta stand guard at the door. Borrowing lines you can’t just like anything in we don’t, let ourselves overly active, give things a magnified, meaning or an exaggerated risk that put you in a state of such fear that you only think of the worst-case scenario.
If you only make it worse case scenario, you’ll, do nothing so those who constantly learn worst case scenario often will say, but I’m, just wanted to protect people. No, you’re, taking people down. First of all, the worst case scenario almost never happens and, second of all, when you constantly focus on it, it affects you.
It affects the people around you. It depresses people’s, minds their emotions. You can even depress their immune system. So listen today is a chance for you to start brand new to step out of the fear that the natural human instinct don’t get me wrong.
It is our now change that can protect ourselves to do what’s necessary in the moment to look out for ourselves, but we’re more than our instincts. We have consciousness. The ability to choose we don’t have to live in fear and picture.
The worst scenario that doesn’t serve it doesn’t, create a way to live your life and it certainly won’t help. Anybody that you love so today lead don’t follow. We knew the truth of our essence that they think certainly are a natural birthright and our infinite abilities.
At any moment, we can awaken effect. We can activate it. So live the truth today and show everyone around you that we can solve any problem we face. The human race always has, and it always will thank you Tom.
During these times, it’s, important for us all to be reminded that life circumstances are meant for us to be experienced and that there’s, grace amongst the chaos, the grace of us, uniting and coming together and looking out for each Other and serving and loving and supporting each other and those of us in need.
You know there’s. Many stories of fear out there in the media right now, but there’s. Also many beautiful stories. You know a friend of mine, the other day sent me a clip and it was of this family in Italy.
They started to play a guitar and another one started to sing to create music, even though they were quarantined you through that music, they brought harmony. They brought joy, they brought light to each other.
It’s. A beautiful thing of the human spirit we as humans are one of the most complex, powerful, intelligent systems ever created, more brilliant than we could ever even understand is what most of us don’t realize is that we don’t only Have a physical immune system, we also have a spiritual and emotional immune system that supports us as well, but throughout all of life we’re all called to adapt and find kinder ways to evolve emotionally, and that allows us to deal with external circumstance With more grace, as long as we don’t get stuck living in our minds in fear, our power right now is to have our own clarity of mind, rather than getting pulled into the root line of fear alone.
You know during these uncertain times of social distancing it’s, also a gift to remember that we’re, all interconnected, whether we’re in proximity or not, we all affect each other at every level and we’re truly one.
You know we’re, all being called right now to unite together and as we do, we are truly collectively greater than any challenge. It comes our way. So a core message to you is don’t. Let fear control you do what you need to do to keep yourself healthy and strong.
Look out for those who love and those you meet. Take advantage of this time to be together. Take a breath, you connect and just remember. We’re, not weak. Our immune systems have evolved over millions of years and we, as human beings, have a capacity with anything that’s.
Put in front of us, so live strong, live with. Faith, live with, passion be well, and God bless [, Music, ]
