I live in Portland, Oregon where we've endured the coronavirus (like everyone else), protests with varying degrees of violence among persons and toward property and most recently, wildfires with smoke hazardous enough to keep even those fortunate enough to have escaped the flames home-bound.
I think Portland is a battle ground and a testing ground. We've been forced indoors, to consider what's most important to us. When many of our freedoms are removed, what's left?
The protests have showcased battles between and among races, the police/criminal justice system, protesters on the left and right politically and our politicians/government. That's quite a bit to navigate.
Personally, I think we're being directed by Source to reexamine our values and learn to compromise and cooperate. Each new crisis adds to the pressure to change. Each new crisis shows how we're not yet, as a collective consciousness, grasping the true purpose of the turmoil we're experiencing.
