Safety and freedom: Inseparable

Much news during the pandemic has focused on the controversy between what’s considered safe behavior and the freedom to pursue normal activities and earn a living. How can society find the unity that’s needed to move forward?

I found clarifying direction one day in some words I saw on a T-shirt: “Begin within.” This spoke to me of two key spiritual teachings on how to find answers to anything important. First, instead of judging or fearing other people’s behavior, I can begin within to see how my thoughts and actions can contribute to healing. Second, I can find safety and freedom within God, the universal Mind, in which “we live, and move, and have our being” (Acts 17: 28).
