We’ve talked about this in our study group. Some of us feel it’s all a kind of wakeup call to the world. Clearly, it is all the result of our wrong-mindedness, unawareness of our unity with the whole planet; not just human life but all life. It’s bringing about an increased awareness of our interrelatedness. The Course advises us that it is all a bad dream caused by our subconscious guilt over separation, and can be healed by our change of mind. We can hope that we will come out of this with a highrer level of consciousness in general.
