One World

“There is only one world, the world pressing against you at this minute. There is only one minute in which you are alive, this minute here and now. The only way to live is by accepting each minute as an unrepeatable miracle.”

My little miracleNot so long ago I came across this quote in a post, I enjoyed the post immensely but it was the quotation that really resonated. It was a reminder to take each minute in our lives as it comes to us, to appreciate where we are in that minute. I couldn’t help thinking there was more here to consider.

We link new thoughts, new ideas to ones we are familiar with. We add to our knowledge base constantly, and from there we create new thoughts. Right now, everything seems to be about Covid 19. This quote doesn’t appear to be at first, at least until I related it to the world around me.

There truly is only one world – the world we all live in. We are truly alive in this minute but what happens tomorrow if we don’t treasure this minute? What happens if we don’t do the right thing for ourselves and those around us? Are we adding to the nightmare rather than creating miracles? Remember, everything we do in life is measured by our behaviour.

At the moment there are some truly atrocious behaviours. Last night I listened as the news informed us of two teenagers that had crossed the border, lied to officers of the law, ignored the fact they could spread the virus (thankfully they were negative thus Covid free) but no-one knew what to do with them. They couldn’t go into quarantine without a guardian and in two days of listening to news reports no-one has mentioned the parents. What are two underage females doing on their own in another state? Why haven’t their families come forward? If the girls concerned lied, they knew they were doing wrong so they had some sort of understanding of the current crisis, right?

I find all this strange myself, but I won’t dwell on it because unfortunately, it is one of many situations. A football coach of certain repute broke isolation because he was confused about what he could do or not do. Considering the great lengths utilised so we here in Australia could continue a season of sports that we love, I also find this strange. This person is a role model and has been part of the decision making. And, last time I looked (five minutes ago),  media coverage on not breaking quarantine is endless. How can people not be aware of what should be done, or is that only for other people and not them? Do they seriously think this is a joke? Or that a miracle cure will come along? It might and soon, but it might not be soon so until then….

I think, and sadly so, that no-one in these scenarios understands the importance of the possible miracles that might be created in that minute where we do the right thing. They choose to be blind.

What is the right thing? The answer is simple – taking responsibility for our actions and for each other. Read the quote again.

“There is only one world, the world pressing against you at this minute. There is only one minute in which you are alive, this minute here and now. The only way to live is by accepting each minute as an unrepeatable miracle.”

I know a lot about some things and extraordinarily little about others. There is always more to learn but I am certain of one thing- there is only one world.

Till next time,
