Love in Action

Outer chaos, inner calmness, and healing 

Master Glenn Tobey

Addressing your emotional response to the pandemic.

April 5, 2020




The topic today is love in action.


The virus and the global reaction to it have brought us illness and death. Absolutely reality. This brought us social distancing. This brought us the need of vaccination, the need of ventilators. All that is reality. Responding to that reality is absolutely important. The question is the safety or vulnerability or fears.


The virus is so powerful in the reality of things. What does virus bring us in spirituality? It brings us love in action.


This morning I was washing the kitchen floor. Yes, I do clean the house, too. While I was washing the kitchen floor, I was listening to some songs. One song is about a river. It brought some images to my mind. The river flowing. I had this vision of a river flowing in front of me. The ancient wisdom of a river. The river is always the same. When you look at, the river is always the same. Going passing this rock. When I stood in the river, it was going passing my knees. The river is always the same. That's the reality.


But the spirituality of the river, the consciousness of the river is always different. It's never the same. The reality, everything seems the same. The spirituality, the consciousness, no, it’s always different.


When you go to a funeral, in order to mourn the loss of one individual, that’s the reality. The spirituality, not so much on the religious side, the spirituality of the funeral, the grief of loss of a spirit. The consciousness of grieving is mourning the loss of everyone come before us. The reality of grieving is mourning the loss of this one person. Both are really important.


So, the virus has provided this sense of loss. The sense of need to do something. It also says that the current pain and suffering are real. How do we respond to it?


The spirituality part says, “It is just the current pain and suffering.” If we got caught up by the loss of one person, if we disconnect with that one loss, not moving into a large picture of it, then we move into depression. We move into a sense of powerlessness.” Then we live in the past. Wondering who died. How can I keep holding onto that death. If we move into anxiety, we have uncertainty. Then we move into the future. What if I die now? What will happen next? Who will get ill? Either way, back into the reality. Move into the past – depression. Move into the future – anxiety.


What is the spirituality of the virus bringing to us the current pain and suffering? Have you noticed this global consciousness more and more? The countries, the people really give up to goods, services, equipment for a greater wall?


On the reality side, politicians could be cynical, could manipulative. Could play against one to the other. That would be the reality side. Is it real? Is it not real?


The spirituality side, what is that level of vibration? The goodness of people. You have a choice to enter the reality to fight for things. It's important. But entering that spirituality. Put the love in action. It's to believe people are doing for each other in a higher level of global consciousness. You can join in that higher level of global consciousness by putting your love in action.


It seems that a lot of healthcare workers those people directly involved in the front line are abscess angry. They are angry at Democrats or Publicans those kinds of things. They are angry that they do not have the equipment. Put more love into action. Live in the present saying, “I need these things in order to put more love into action.” If I don’t have these things, I cannot put love into action.”


So, the world’s respond helping find this equipment in order to put love in action. Beautiful. Find a way to put love in action.
