What is the Corona/ Covid-19 Virus Really Teaching us?

I’m a strong believer that there is a SPIRITUAL purpose behind everything that happens in this world whether that is what we perceive as being good or being bad.

As I meditate upon this,
I want to share with you what I feel the Corona/ Covid-19 virus is really doing to us:

1) It is reminding us that we are all EQUAL regardless of our culture, religion, occupation, financial situation or how famous we are.
This disease treats us all equally, perhaps we should to.

2) It is reminding us that we are all connected and something that affects one person has an effect on another.
It is reminding us that the false borders that we have put up have little value as this virus does not need a passport. It is reminding us, by oppressing us for a short time, of those in this world whose whole life is spent in oppression.

3) It is reminding us of how PRECIOUS our HEALTH is and how we have moved to neglect it through eating nutrient poor manufactured food and drinking water that is contaminated with chemicals upon chemicals LIKE SODA etc.....
If we don’t look after our HEALTH we will, of course, get Very Sick.

4) It is reminding us of the SHORTNESS of life & of what is most important for us to do, which is to help each other, especially those who are OLD OR SICK.
Our purpose is not to buy TOILET Rolls & Clear up the Shelves without thinking of others.

5) It is reminding us of how MATERIALISTIC our SOCIETY has become & how, when in times of difficulty, we remember that it’s the essentials that we need (food, water, medicine)
as opposed to the LUXURIOUS that we sometimes unnecessarily give VALUE to.

6) It is reminding us of how important our FAMILY & our HOME LIFE is and how much we have NEGLECTED this.
It is FORCING us back into our houses so we can rebuild them into our home &

7) It is reminding us that our true work is not our job,
that is what we do, NOT what we were created to do.
Our true work is to LOOK AFTER EACH OTHER as our Grand Parents did , to PROTECT each other & to be of BENEFIT to one another.

8) It is reminding us to keep our egos in check. It is reminding us that no matter how great we think we are or how great others think we are,
a virus can bring our world to a standstill.

9) It is reminding us that the power of freewill is in our hands. We can choose to cooperate and help each other, to share, to give, to help & to support each other or we can choose to be selfish, to hoard, to look after only ourself. Indeed, it is difficulties that bring out OUR TRUE COLOR.

10) It is reminding us that we can be patient, or we can panic. We can either understand that this type of situation has happened MANY times before in history and will PASS , or we can PANIC & SEE it as the END of the world & consequently, cause ourselves more harm than good.

11) It is reminding us that this can either be an end or a NEW beginning. This can be a time of reflection & understanding, where we learn from our mistakes, or it can be the START of a cycle which will continue until we finally learn the lesson we are meant to.

12) It is reminding us that this Earth is sick.
It is reminding us that we need to look at the rate of deforestation just as urgently as we look at the speed at which toilet rolls are disappearing off of shelves. We are sick because our home is sick.

13) It is reminding us that after every difficulty, there is always ease. Life is cyclical, and this is just a phase in this great cycle. We do not need to panic; this too shall pass.

14) Whereas many see the Corona/ Covid-19 virus as a great disaster, I prefer to see it as a *GREAT CORRECTOR IN OUR LIVES*

It is sent to REMIND us of the important lessons that we seem to have forgotten & it is up to us if WE WILL LEARN them or NOT.... 🙏🏻

Recently I watched a commencement speech given by Admiral William H. McRaven, a retired U.S Navy Seal, in 2014 to the graduating class at the University of Texas. I was so intrigued listening to his speech which recounted 10 lessons he learned from his 6 months of gruelling, demanding, tiring and debilitating Navy Seal training. These 10 lessons not only apply to life as a Navy Seal, but it equally applies to the challenges that each and every one of us endure as human beings living in an uncertain world.
