Why not pause for a moment?

During these days when religion takes a hold on the occidental world and when all roads lead towards celebrating a vacation, it is a good moment to make a pause in our hectic life.

Surprisingly, already the years’ first trimester has gone by, we sense the spring time and summer is just around the corner.

But, it’s during these days when people make a stop in their daily routines to meditate how the year has been to them. Companies take this resting period to analyze if the year’s projections have been right or if they have to make adjustments in order to be able to comply with the goals.

The majority of the human beings uses this period to make a genuine introspection of their own spirituality and is looking for individual and collective alternatives to increase that divine connection that reminds them of their humanity.

On the other hand, there are those that take the opportunity to reinforce the eternal indoctrination, based on punishment, to “crucify the lost souls that are submerged in sin and take the opportunity of this period to make them repent and return to the Lord’s flock”.

Fortunately we are living in a time in which the conscience is grandiosely awakening, when people finally are living and understanding the difference between what is spirituality and what is religion.

Luckily the vast majority of persons is making a pause in their lives and are analyzing if their daily decisions they are taking are helping them and how they are also helping their communities and their immediate family.

They are also becoming more conscious that their actions go hand in hand with their words, that if they profess having faith, hope and love, it is a lifestyle and not some mere actions during a determined time during the year.

We are living in a time during which everyone, without distinction of color, race, gender or any other difference, is making a pause since all of us, as a collective, are looking for our purpose in life, better yet our mission.

During this search for “the truth” and in response to our internal calling that we believe is born from an unknown seed that was possibly sown at our birth, we forget that no matter the meaning one wants to give to spirituality or religion, we are all equals, we are all in the same search, we all feel love and desire more than all reasonable doubt to feel the true significance of the word “belonging”.

This week when people don’t eat red meat, altars are worshiped, churches and beaches are visited and people spend quality time with their loved one, it is a perfect moment to make a pause and appreciate everything one has.

That simple act of humbly recognizing all that one has is simply the best way to remember who we are, where we come from and all that we have achieved and also recognizing our humanity.

Now that you are reading this, it is only a simple reminder of what you already know, of what’s born daily in your soul, of what is in your DNA’s cells and what, more than ancient rituals, it’s a recognition to our humanity and to the sense of belonging to a human race, that in its majority loves unconditionally, without distinction and without prejudice.
