The coronavirus may seem like a collective catastrophe, but it is actually a wakeup call to humanity to change our destructive ways
A crisis, like a global pandemic, arises because Nature is trying to teach us a lesson.
A crisis is a situation created through an inability to live in accordance with natural law — the laws of Nature governing the Universe. The crisis is the signal, the red light, alerting us to change direction in order to avert a perilous danger lying ahead. Nature always knows best how to organize. Nature also always gives us whatever is best for our growth and evolution.
Nature is like a mother. When a child errs, the mother always acts to correct her offspring.
The coronavirus is the voice of Mother Nature leading humanity to a higher level of understanding and functioning. It is Mother Nature’s way of clearing the obstacles which have accumulated on the path of human evolution. If our collective mistakes are not corrected now, global extinction could be the result.
So, what is the message of this current crisis? This is the time to go inward. Stay inside. Staying in doesn’t just mean stay in one’s house. It means: Go Within. Reflect on what we as human beings are doing to our planet.
What are we prioritizing in our life? Is it the mad pursuit of wealth for ourselves or is it shared human values? Are we allowing the exploitation of the masses by a few billionaires or are we dedicated to sharing our natural resources to alleviate poverty in the world? Is material progress more important to us than spiritual development? Is a health-oriented lifestyle or chronic disease becoming widespread? What is the reason for the present scenario? How have we as individuals contributed to it?
What can we do now to re-shape our future on this planet and create a new order of living that reflects our innate interconnectedness?
This moment in human history will never be forgotten. We are on Halt. Brakes have been put on because we must: Stop and Look and Listen. The red light is flashing. What will we do now? In which direction are we heading? It is our choice!
Human actions have caused global warming, environmental degradation, loss of biodiversity, and ozone depletion. Factors such as excessive deforestation, water contamination, over-consumption and exploitation of natural resources have led to this crisis. If we pollute the air, the water bodies, the earth, the food chain, the entire biosphere, then the earth will send calamities, crises and catastrophes.
Human civilization has caused the loss of 83% of all wild mammals and threaten the extinction of half of the 28,000 plant species. Human beings have also cut down at least 46% of the trees on earth. Between 1990 and 2016 alone, over 1.3 million square kilometers of forests have been felled. Land degradation is a process in which the value of the biophysical environment is affected by a combination of human-induced processes acting upon the land. It is estimated that up to 40% of the world’s agricultural land is seriously degraded.
This is a red alert signal to warn humanity. If nations continue to focus on developing weapons of mass destruction, and amassing more and more power and land to assert their superiority over other nations; if their aim is to earn more and more wealth to become a superpower in the world in order to force other nations to bow to their commands, they will suffer the consequences of such decisions. Such actions damage the holistic fabric of life and Nature’s flawless reaction always follows because there is an integral design which weaves the harmonious pattern interconnecting all living beings on this planet.
Each individual is like a cell in the cosmic body of the Universe. A disease in one part of the body necessarily and inevitably affects the health of the whole organism.
We are all an interdependent web of life. We are all ONE. To take care of ourselves, it is incumbent on us to take care of each other. No nation can afford to place self-interest at the forefront and disregard the wellbeing of other nations. Each nation must learn to care for the health of the whole world in order to ensure maximum development for itself. Global harmony, success, and progress depend on the world functioning as an integrated whole.
This pandemic is a warning from Nature. It is also a blessing because there is love embedded in this cosmic message from Mother Earth. If Nature didn’t love us, Nature would allow us to destroy ourselves and the planet. But whenever violations of natural law reach a certain threshold, Nature always sounds an alarm. At present, alarm bells are resounding worldwide!
The ecosystem is in distress. To strengthen our immunity, we are being asked to turn inward. Turn to the power of love, the power of peace, the power of compassion. This is the only power which is inexhaustible.
It is time to go inward, reflect and take a U-turn towards love, peace, harmony and prosperity for all humanity.
The more we give, the more we have. Every vibration of love, peace, and harmony we send out into the ethers spreads out to touch the farthest reaches of the Universe. Every action we do now to help others pass through the challenges and tribulations the world is facing will help us collectively rise to a higher level of global unity. We can save our planet by radiating love, peace, harmony and compassion in our thoughts, words and actions. That is how we can sow the seeds for a grander, brighter, and more heavenly life on earth.
