As of this writing, the entire world is dealing with the fear and confusion caused by the Covid 19 (Carona) virus. Many theories, accusations and apocalyptic postulations have been put forward as to the origins and purpose of this virus. One common observation which is emerging from the chaos is that our collective values and priorities as human beings have become misplaced. One example is Italy, which is experiencing a renewal of wildlife and natural restoration due to the reduction of traffic and pollution.
I’ve never been a tree-hugger, nor anything close to an “environmentalist” even though I grew up in a very rural area. I have come to realize, however, that nature is very much connected to God and that a spiritual lifestyle must include a profound reverence for nature and simplicity. In fact, this is the very essence of Positive Energy. It is valuable, priceless, majestic. Only a fool does not see the importance of respecting and nurturing the earth around us as is well demonstrated in George Carlin’s monologue.
Positive Energy does not argue with, coerce or manipulate you. If you don’t recognize its value it simply doesn’t let you in. Negative Energy, on the other hand, will blind you, put a leash around your neck and drag you around. Regardless as to whether or not climate change is due to human intervention, we know how to be responsible for our planet. To not be responsible is simply disrespect. Yet, demanding change by force is not the answer. Positive change must come through Love and Divine intervention. Sometimes, Love has to be tough. Showing the consequences of one’s actions by placing them in time out is one way of showing Love. Right now, all of us are in time out.
We used to have Public Service Announcements which reflected our values and respect for community and responsibility. I can remember the commercial below as well as
the Smokey Bear commercials and “Do You Know Where Your Children Are?” spots. At some point it seems that society became more addicted to greed and convenience and our collective Egos drifted from these values.
We need to explore new types of energy. We need to look more into Tesla’s discoveries. We also need to confront those in power who are corrupt and deceptive with the Truth and possible legal action. We need to care more for our neighbors. We need to sing more from our balconies. Something needs to change and it appears we have been sent a clear message that change is on the horizon, whether we like it or not.
