The greatest writing ✍️ occurs during the worst suffering.
Suffering is universal. It is inevitable. Humans do not have to travel long or far in this world before suffering rears its ugliness!
This is the primary reason why I believe my writing on my personal suffering appeals to others—because people suffer daily.
But I have seen beautiful words from countless people across social media channels.
We long for truth, goodness, & beauty. In the face of a faceless enemy, we unite.
There exists tremendous beauty in unity.
I can’t remember a crisis where I smiled so much during the present moment. I learned to find the grace of my past pain over through hindsight.
But we are presently in 2020 (hindsight). The mystery of suffering leads us to the mystery of Truth.
United we stand. Divided we…never mind. I don’t think we will get too divided. This crisis is too big to let our differences to get in the way.
I wish it didn’t take suffering to unite. But that is the way reality often works.
Let’s be thankful for more time at home.
Focus on fostering unity in your family. Thank God for social media as we can stay connected mentally & emotionally in spite of physical distances.
One day you will be able to hug your brother or sister or friends.
Until the virus is contained, please exercise good hygiene, common sense, and ask the Holy Spirit to give you fortitude and kindness. 🖖
