This blog is going to be very different from the others I have written. Last night I awoke physically, emotionally and mentally. The awakening was this: We must go back to work.
Having spent my whole career as a Healer / Helper, my focus has always been on how to extend life and make the journey of life more fun, interesting, and successful. That is why for the last week or so I have been preaching wearing masks to preserve your health and stay well.
It is now time to go a step beyond and look at the bigger picture. The whole world has been put on hold. Businesses and personal lives have been vastly altered. We have been fearful for our own lives. What if I get this virus and die? We have been overwhelmed with opinions and theories and blame and finger pointing. The frustration and anger were clearly seen yesterday in the dialogue of my post.
It is time to stop focusing on who is right and think about what is right.
Our world is built like a house of cards. If one segment falls, the rest becomes very unstable. When we stop work, that world becomes very shaky. As long as all the parts keep going, we can keep it all together. But, now we are like that deer in the headlights. We have become paralyzed. By fear, by government mandates, by lack of services, by shortages, by the discrepancies in the stories, by bloggers and hoax promoters, and by many other things.
We are entering a critical time. We have to return to work. Let’s wear our masks and protect ourselves but let’s restart the engine of this world.
We have been coasting. What will be the cost of that?
Many people are going to die from this virus. However, on a lighter note they will soon be replaced with the baby boom of 2021.
Seriously, we must restart the world. If not, the supply chains will begin to fail. Look how easily we were out of toilet paper. Talk to your bosses. Talk to your senators and congressmen and women. Call the governor’s office. Talk to your local law enforcement officers. Tell them you want to go back to work or you want to reopen your business. We must end the quarantine. We must go on with life.
Yes, the virus will spread even faster. More people will die sooner, but that is going to happen anyway. We have slowed it down enough for the medical communities to get better prepared. Now, we must move forward. If we do not fix this now, only the Amish and the survivalists are going to get through this because 90% of the earth’s population cannot sustain themselves.
Everyone of us played a part in the world before. Suddenly, a huge part of the machine quit working. We can salvage this. It will not look like it did before. Ultimately, it will be better. If we start now, we can still save it, otherwise it is going to get very ugly.
We must go back to work.
Will some of you get sick? Probably most of us will get this virus. The good news is that most of us will survive the illness and then we can get past it and continue to rebuild an even better world.
Some of us will die. So, like I said in previous blogs, YOU must make peace with that. If you believe in eternal life after physical death, then no worries. If you do not, then it will not make any difference anyway. Death might be a portal to another dimension. Nobody really knows for sure what lies beyond, if anything. That is why we are afraid. The unknown.
What we do know is that as living beings we have a life cycle. We are born, we live a while, and then we die. We have created many stories about what lies beyond. Whatever your story is, make peace with that. Then move on with your life as long as you can.
Be sensible. Protect yourself as much as you can. But stop all the nonsense of trying to figure out how you can beat this virus. Let your mind, your body and your own immune system do its job. People are doing stupid things like nebulizing peroxide into their lungs and drinking fish tank cleaner because there is hydroxychloroquine in it. Wash your hands when you have contact with others but relax. You do not need to wipe every surface in your environment with disinfectant. Be reasonable. Sure, do not lick the counter top in the checkout at the grocery store. Just do what you have always done. Practice good hygiene.
Stop reading every internet article that you can find. Stop re-posting everything you read. Stop watching the news. Stop looking at Worldometer or the CDC website. You are alive, be thankful. Start putting your world back together.
Stop for a moment. Get a grip. Know yourself. Trust yourself. Trust your intuition. Trust your God if you are a religious person. Let go of your fear and get back to work.
