What You Didn’t Know About Corona

The Uncertainty Time Are the Best Time

Many people if they were told to look through the window the only thing they will be able to see would be only the curtains window glasses or woods, and other material that made up the window.

But have you ever think they are more than just a window full of curtains, window glasses, or woods?

Yes, there are more than that, but let’s start here first.

Dear reader, if you are in Africa, America, Asia, Europe, or any part of this world, I understand we are in the uncertainty time. And so many things happen in between that makes a lot a part.

Precisely, during this time of uncertainty, many have carried different kinds of thinking and the eyes to see different things from their perspectives too.

They are the ones who think we are in a horrible world, things are bad, nothing will ever change or even thinking these are the last times in the world — and that’s okay.

Ooh! Well, what if I invite you to see the other side of this world?

Bring your eyes through the window again and see how beautiful the sky is, it’s blueness make your eyes still.

The sun is shining out there and the birds are singing, don’t you know that is a gaze to your mind?

The rain is falling out from the sky and make perfect weather, while the wind is blowing so well, even the trees and grasses can’t stand its natural stillness.

In this time instead of seeing the world just like the way how many puts their perspectives on you from the news, magazines, friends on social media’s e.t.c… (which only allows you to see the curtains, window glasses or woods from the window) it’s time for us to make a shift by asking the bigger questions,

“What should we learn here? Or, what should I learn during this time of uncertainty like this?

Because this is what I believe, living in this world, we aren’t here only for material development, mind, or body but we have to grow spiritually too.

And it’s true, we don’t pay attention to our intuition or how life talks to us, then life has to teach us strongly; either to lose our lovely ones, get sick so badly, hits the trucks, get fired, break up in relationships or anything that bring a break — believe me, it’s a breakthrough to the human spirit.

But also in this world of duality, good and bad, positive and negative, death and birth, health and illness — all of those things have to happen so that things can be in balance.

In the duality believes system, we understand nothing can really exist without the others.

There is short because others know how tall looks, like.

There is ugliness because people understand how beauty looks like.

There is evil because people understand what it looks like to live in goodness.

There is life because there is death, so does death give meaning to life.

There are always dichotomies in everything and if it were my master, he will probably tell you that “Just be in the paradoxical unity of those dichotomies and learn to enjoy it.”

What should we learn during this time of uncertainty?

(What I have been able to learn)

Individualization Isn’t Separation

So many of us now are in solitude mode (others term it as isolation). We should know that solitude isn’t loneliness and if you found yourself unhappy simply because there are no people around you, maybe it’s time to give it a try — get time to know yourself. As we have been caught up with a lot of worldly busyness so we don’t know our real nature.

The master writer of meditation master Bhagwan put it this way,

“Aloneness means bliss in being alone. One is alive when one has become capable of it, when there is no dependence anymore on anybody, in any situation, on any condition.”

Discrimination Is Necessary

“The mind require the right information to produce a positive or peaceful life.”

To make a good sandwich or chapati, one has to have the right ingredients. Either it’s good flour or cooking oil, I am sure you can’t use sand or kerosene — so, do your mind require the right information to produce a positive or peaceful life too.

People have to come to their real sense that sometimes we are the ones who make ourselves sick.

Indeed, we will always get sick if we keep holding sick thoughts. Sometimes we have to let the dead alone and saying that I didn’t mean people shouldn’t care about others, but it’s time to learn what kind of information we really want to put, either those which confuses us or empower us — you have a choice.

What It Means to Take Responsibility

“Change situation or remove yourself from the situations, if you can’t do any of that you should at least learn to stop resisting any of the life events.”

Either you remove yourself from the situation, change the situation or accept things as they’re — if you can’t do any of that just stop resisting things, and let things be just like the way they are, and that it means you have learned to take responsibility.

It’s not about blaming, fearing, taking all the time (from the social media, with your family, during morning or even during dinner time) about the uncertainty, or anything that will cause madness situations to your mental calmness.

If You Are Still Sleep This Is a Wakeup Call

Maybe we forget who we are and this is just part of the awakening time — that humans are nothing without God and there is a time we cannot define our power as it’s He, who makes each step. (I didn’t mean that God bring this situation but humans alone with their free will).

So, who are you to decide the time to travel while you don’t even know if you will wake up tomorrow?

Who are you to think that you can go to your work all day all long without even take a rest with God’s equipment (His body, mind, and soul)?

You work 6 days a week and a 7th day you spend your time thinking about what you have done in those 6 days.

It’s time to wake up and realizing that it’s not us who keeps ourselves alive, it’s not us who we are in control or in charge of this life — there is God (you can call it whatever name) who is in control of everything.

It’s time to learn to trust His natural way of working things out, instead of worrying, blaming, or even wishing things shouldn’t be just like the way they are now.

What if, we all became so grateful as we are healthy and well?

What if we use this time to become aware and know our true selves?

What if we learn to get along with our family, lovely ones, forgive others, teach our kids something new, and learn to exercise or read more productive books?

I believe there are a lot of things to do — just a lot.

And it’s not about fixing things and thinking — I wish I could change the situation. For your information, no one can take over the world. There is someone who is in charge of everything. (And I didn’t mean you shouldn’t do anything but stop trying to controlling everything).

If you don’t get it all, maybe through the Tao Te Ching by the Chinese Master, Lao Tzu you can get it.

Lao Tzu sums this up perfectly in this short observation:

“Do you think you can take over the universe and improve it? I do not believe it can be done.

Everything under heaven is a sacred vessel and cannot be controlled.

Trying to control leads to ruin.

Trying to grasp, we lose.

Allow your life to unfold naturally.

Know that it too is a vessel of perfection.

Just as you breathe in and breathe out,

there is a time for being ahead and a time for being behind;

a time for being in motion and a time for being at rest;

a time for being vigorous and a time for being exhausted;

a time for being safe and a time for being in danger.

To the sage all of life is a movement toward perfection, so what need has he for the excessive, the extravagant, or the extreme?”

Sure, what need has he for the excessive, the extravagant, or the extreme? It’s only your ego is trying to protect you because your ego can’t stand any stillness moment.

Through your ego, you only identify yourself as who you are is what you do, have, or what others think of you. That’s why you are trying so hard to not lose those identities.

So if you miss those, you lose the sense of who you are, that is why… so many are depressed, stressed, confused, and a lot of collisions in between.

But with our free will what I believe is that,

“We can choose to awake and let God or keep being hostages to our ego and keep suffering — we, all have a choice.”

And if you still wonder how you would cope with the situations?

I call it “The Corona Effect
