Twenty Five: Courage in the Time of Coronavirus


I know now that I am a lion of cosmic power. Bleating no more, I shake the error forest with reverberations of Thine almighty voice. In divine freedom I bound through the jungle of earthly delusions, devouring the little creatures of vexing worries and timidities, and the wild hyenas of disbelief.

O Lion of Liberation, ever send through me Thy roar of all-conquering courage.

~ Sri Paramahansa Yogananda,
Whispers from Eternity

Now is the time for all men to step forward and be accountable. We can no longer be quiet sheep led to slaughter by the powers that govern our nation. Hundreds of thousands of us have perished in horribly ugly deaths when it does not have to be this way. It is time for all to speak our minds and to save our fellow citizens by following the CDC Guidelines of Social Distancing and Mask Wearing. We can no longer continue to be silent and to die. Courage is the strength to stand up and to be accountable no matter what the circumstances.
