Coronavirus

por Jayeshbhai [English below]

Due to our local county’s guidance around Coronavirus risks, this week’s circle has moved to a virtual space! To learn more about the online circle,  just RSVP here, and we’ll send you the details by email.

Queridos Amig@s,

Estamos siendo informad@s de manera continua y muy generosa a través de muchos sitios web, redes sociales, y de los medios de comunicación, sobre las medidas de seguridad y precaución que nosotr@s en colectivo podemos tomar contra el Coronavirus

Si bien este flujo de información ha alimentado una cierta sensación de escasez y miedo, podemos aprovechar esta oportunidad y transformarla para re-equilibrar nuestras vidas en la abundancia. Si bien continuamos temporalmente manteniendo un aislamiento físico, que ésta sea una oportunidad para unir el espíritu de comunidad y el poder de una sociedad resiliente. Y fortalecer las raíces como la de los robles.

En lugar de consumir más de lo que se necesita por temor a agotar los recursos, podemos entender que podemos compartirlo con nuestros hermanos, hermanas y otros seres silenciosos con los que compartimos este planeta y saber que hay suficiente para llevarnos colectivamente a través de “Éstos” tiempos difíciles. Construyamos mejores hábitos alimenticios, mejores opciones de vida, mantengamos nuestro medio ambiente sano y limpio. Sé más consciente, atent@ y amoros@s con nuestr@s seres querid@s, vecin@s y familiares que aún no hemos conocido.

Podemos ver ésto como una oportunidad para superar los límites de la casta, el credo, la raza, el color de piel, o los pensamientos que nos siguen dividiendo. Confiemos en que esta naturaleza nos llama a hacer una pausa para recordar nuestras conexiones humanas.

Que tod@s aceptemos esta invitación para entrar en nuestras más altas aspiraciones y servir, con amor, hacia el bienestar colectivo.

Amar a todos – Servir a todos – Compartir con todos ——–Jayeshbhai

Junto con Virenbhai y Anarbhen, Jayeshbhai es uno de los fundadores de Manav Sadhna en el Ashram de Gandhi. La organización es una incubadora de amor donde l@s voluntari@s de todo el planeta se inspiran para crear cientos de proyectos que sirven a nuestra interconectada comunidad. En los veinte años desde su fundación, Manav Sadhna ha tocado la vida de miles a través de programas de educación, salud y empoderamiento para las mujeres, entre muchos otros.

No nos asustemos … en su lugar, fortalezcamos nuestras virtudes hacia el bienestar colectivo. Verás entonces, que la humanidad extenderá su fragancia a través de la Compasión (Karuna)

Let us not panic … instead, let’s strengthen our Virtues towards collective well being. You will see then, humanity will spread its fragrance through Compassion (Karuna) 

Dear Friends,

We have been continually and very generously informed through many social networking websites as well as media; about the safety and precautionary measures that we as a collective can take against Coronavirus.

While this outpour of information has fueled a certain sense of scarcity and fear, we can turn it around by taking this opportunity as a way to re-balance our lives into abundance. While we continue to maintain a temporary physical isolation, may this be an opportunity to bring together the spirit of community and the power of a resilient society. And strengthen the roots like that of the Oak trees.

Instead of consuming more than one needs out of the fear of depleting resources, may we understand that we can share it with our brothers, sisters another silent beings that we share this planet with – and know that there is enough to collectively take us through at such trying times. Let us build better eating habits, better living choices, keep our environment healthy and clean. Be more aware, mindful and loving towards our dear ones, neighbors, family that we have not yet met.

May we look at this as an opportunity to rise beyond the limits of caste, creed, race, color, or thoughts that continue to divide us. Let us trust this nature’s call for us to pause and remind us of our shared humanity. 

May we all embrace this invitation to step into our highest aspirations and serve, with love, towards the collective well being. 

Love All – Serve All – Share with All ————Jayeshbhai
