COVID-19, like Pharaoh, presses us to come out of Egypt, namely our ego. It shows us that we are dependent on each other and it is pointless and foolish to care only for ourselves. Egypt is not a place; it is a state of being locked inside the ego with no way to come out. But these days, as we recognize our interdependence, we acknowledge that unless we do it together, we will never be freed of Pharaoh, the coronavirus.
The heart will never agree to mutual responsibility on its own. It will always be forced to accept it. But it’s better to agree to cultivate mutual concern of our own volition than through the pressure of tyrants like the crown (corona) virus.
Yet, when we accept the commitment to care for one another, we will discover, like the children of Israel, a land flowing with milk and honey—the delight and pleasures found in warm, caring connections among all. Today, we must forge these connections in all of humanity.
