A Letter from the Virus

If we look at the coronavirus pandemic through the lens of a spiritual call, then what might we see. 

Part of what working with the Enneagram invites us to do is to dis-identify with our contracted Type structure.  As we observe ourselves on automatic and pause, as the Narrative Enneagram invites us to, we can begin to see that we are more than the narrow range of choices our type offers us.  We can begin to open into that “more than” way of being.

This video, “A Letter from the Virus,” is asking us to step back and see how identified most of us in more privileged circumstances are with a life style that is harmful to our very survival.  It shows us how important it is to dis-identify with our life style, not just our contracted Types. 

This is such hard work, both at the personal level, but also at the societal level.  But, perhaps it is time to do both.

Dull, grey day
Listening to gentle rain fall out the window,
The whir of the dishwasher downstairs
Finding a quiet space inside
To feel grateful  (SD)
