COVID-19 Truth, Fiction and Hope
Just 10 days ago, I had to make the difficult decision not to fly to Seattle, Washington which was named "ground zero" of the Corona Virus in the United States at that time. I had planned on visiting a dear aunt, sick with lung disease.
Between the time I booked my ticket and my date of departure, things had escalated in Washington to the point the city had start shutting down and visitors banned from facilities
as a protective measure. At this point, the gravity of the situation started settling and the reality that life has changed.
Life is unsettling right now and there's a warranted degree of anxiety based on uncertainty. I'm an information junky and my way of coping is to research and understand whatever situation I'm facing and then proceed accordingly. This pandemic is no exception.
I came across a video by Gregg Braden, a five-time New York Times best-selling author, researcher, educator, lecturer and internationally renowned as a pioneer bridging science, spirituality, and human potential. I found the information he's provided comprehensive and insightful though I wish to emphasize that this is my opinion and I always encourage you, the reader to do your own research and act accordingly.
We have challenges ahead. This is not the first and I believe that we can emerge from this crisis stronger, more balanced and closer to our loved ones and ourselves. There's an obvious (potentially) positive outcome of the pandemic and its the fact that we've been put in touch with our true priority which is life, living and remembering to be human beings instead of human doings.
