Now is the time when we all learn that we are all equal, that we all put our pants on one leg at a time. Corona Virus is the great equalizer. The us and the them is the Great We. Why is it that we only recognize this as a Universal Truth during such times? Why is it that we cannot learn from our history? We as a species, have a long history of building “Great Societies” and watching them fall, yet we never seem to get the lesson. The human ego is such a demon if you let it be your guide, it is fragile and weak. The human ego manipulates information to make it look good to others, even when it knows the truth is something other than what it presents. Have we all fallen victim, yet again, to the great human ego? The mind is a blessing and a curse. The mind helps us gather information, learn, grow and build upon past experiences, whether learned from a book or actual experience, but it seems to leave out all the painful lessons that came with all that learned knowledge. Do we simply forget that we are still human? Human animals, one of many kinds of animal on this great planet we call Earth. Do we simply forget that we all need fresh air to breath and fresh water to drink? Animals are fragile creatures, hungry, thirsty and subject to disease and disaster. We are human animals, our minds tell us we are better than all the other animals on the planet, our minds lie.
We shut out the body that tries to tell us what it needs. Air to breathe, water to drink, food to eat, rest, and comfort. Our hearts, our souls, try to tell us what it needs, love, compassion, companionship, intimacy and community. Yes, our minds want to know more and more, yet with the whole history of the world at our fingertips we pick and choose what we want to know, and only what we want to know with the precision of a surgeon, cutting out unwanted, cancerous parts of the body. How can we forget that we are human, precious, fragile, creatures?
It is only now, that we are all faced with a dis-ease that has no discernment, it cuts without mercy, do we recognize our own mortality. We are all going to die, someday. We are all here to learn lessons on this beautiful planet we call earth. Whether it is by this disease or another, we are all going to leave our bodies and pass on to another place eventually. The time is now, to reconcile the Body, Mind and Soul. Lets all live like we are dying. Because we are all going to die, someday.
