THE WAY I SEE IT | Susan Amoroso
There are billions and even trillions of creatures in this world, many of which have been discovered, many have gone extinct but were fossilized and recorded. Still there are yet to be discovered. Each one, even the nanoparticles have specific roles to play. Many are intertwined and are codependent on each other’s existence. The world’s a stage with different levels of awareness.
This realization has become acute with each day. As I walk along the path of my life, the myriad experiences, emotions, people, places and things that dot each moment of my life are as unique to me as they are to those whose lives I touched whether I am aware or not. This is also true with each one of us human beings and other creatures that exist in this world. The universe is another entirely on their own level. The universe is a different equation as the earth is where I am right now.
Suddenly I know that I am a nobody while being somebody to some. Though I am just another one of the billions and billions of creatures on this planet called earth, I know that my existence is important one way or the other. Something and somebody will not exist nor be if not for me. This is true for each one of us.
This is the reason why now I do not think so highly of myself. Yet at the same time I do not diminish my very existence. I know I have a role to play in this world and this role is given to me by my creator for a higher purpose.
Now whenever I see pain, happiness, beauty, ugliness, dirt, cleanliness, the highs and the lows of life, I am not anymore surprised. I know everything happens for a reason. But one thing is sure, there is a sublime being that rules over the earth and the universe. The very fact that each movement of every planet within its axis as they revolve around the sun follows a definite order.
Have you ever peered into a microscope and seen for yourself how each molecule, each gland, each nanoparticle of each organ in our body has a specific role to play in the make up of the human body?
Have you ever seen how the macrophage envelopes the bacteria and the viruses so that these harmful foreign entities that can destroy the integrity of our human tissues are annihilated and expelled through the bowels, the lungs, kidneys, mouths, nose and sweat glands?
Our immune system works that same way. Our DNA or deoxyribonucleic acid is equipped with a tracking system that flags the entire body system to guard against danger, be it harmful bacteria and viruses.
Our creator created our body that heals itself. See how our wounds heal by themselves in a few days or weeks without doing anything. This is also true in how the planet can heal itself. Carbon dioxide that is the by-product of burning and oxidation is carried off by winds and becomes the food of every tree, plant and grass that grows all over the surface of this planet.
This is the reason why I am so optimistic that this pandemic will come to pass and I am not afraid. God is the ruler and knows everything. He is ever in charge and I trust in Him.
