Right now, with the Covid-19 virus, climate crisis, unemployment, immigration, etc, we see a lot of troubles, a lot of problems, a lot of a big mess happening in our world – not just our country, but our whole world – right now. Everyone has a story. Everyone has a complaint. Everyone has an opinion. Everyone has everything with regards to each others experiences.
And… we are asking questions. For some of us, one of the questions we also HAVE to ask is – “How does this serve me?” as an individual, and “How does this serve us?” meaning humanity. (I consider this 1 question even though it’s asked in two ways.)
There are real questions to ask, and this particular real question has a much deeper answer than just the surface answers being more complaints, more problems, and more opinions. This is a question which can bring an even greater understanding of our spiritual path, our spiritual place in life and our spiritual work in this situation.
It is also a question which must be looked at, considered, and let simmer over time. If we simply repeat the problems and gripes as if that were the answer, then we don’t have the answer. This is a question which must be examined in depth.
We can equate it with Christ’s dying on the cross. If we were standing at the base of the cross 2000+ years ago, we would think the answer is just another problem, loss of hope, and sign of more danger. But, looking at this question 2000+ years later, we can see there is a much more expansive answer to the question.
How does Christ’s death on the cross serve me? How does Christ’s death on the cross serve humanity. With asking it now, we can see that, for our self, there is more to the answer than just a momentary immediate answer which we might come up with off the top of our head.
We can ask the same thing about Gandhi’s death, Martin Luther King’s death, or many of the events which we consider disasters for people throughout history.
There are answers – deeper and more meaningful answers. And …. each of us can only ask for ourselves, because each of us has our own unique story, perspective and understanding. My answers come from my story, perspective and understanding. Yours come from yours.
The question is worth asking, because the answer that comes to us – for us alone – is worth knowing, … and the answer has meaning at some of the deepest parts of ourselves.
