Breaking It Down, Building It Up
So far, 2020 has been the Year of De-Construction triggered by media-fueled panic over the "pandemic". It was amazing to me how fast most people were willing to "lock down" their lives, cowering behind face masks, without first stepping back and making some mindful observations about their own situations.
With the CDC drastically revising down Corona fatalities as we speak, this starkly reveals a teaching moment for all of us about money and power, and how common sense got lost amid the cortisol fight and flight from Hollywood movie-type scenarios, that were both falsely reported and exaggerated.
This "event" has shown us:
- What we wanted to believe overrode empirical facts to fit our narratives of environmental dangers and self-destruction.
- That media outlets over the past 40 years have increasingly relied on worst-case scenarios and cherry-picked facts to support frightening narratives.
- How fear is used to conduct social engineering to enrich the greedy, and further inhuman apocalyptic agendas.
- How fear divorces us from seeing the immediate solutions to problems causing the fear (e.g. hydroxychloroquine--in use by the military for over 40 years on hundreds of thousands of people as a safe cure; the need for "herd immunity" which is blocked by "social distancing", "sheltering" and mask wearing; Vitamin C, Vitamin D and zinc supplementation; remembering commonly known facts about how viruses are spread--UV light and heat destroy them, and that viruses are not easily spread via surface contact; and that the vast majority of humans either have or quickly acquire immunity thanks to the genius of the human immune system).
- Fear is the greater--and more lethal--threat to the immune system than any virus.
This has been a major social de-construction event, and will ultimately lead to a greater sense of gratitude for what we do have, and a greater empathy for all living things.
There's a deeper meaning for me personally. I've lived most of my life without a lot of material "stuff". I never really wanted much, and the things I did acquire, I got them through favorable circumstance, or through the generosity of others. I've been in a religious cult, surviving on $30 a week for years; I've misspent two small fortunes; I've been homeless; and I've been on several monkish spiritual retreats. What I'm coming to realize is that not having much has been way easier for me than acquiring stuff. I'm more likely to give it all away than to hold on to it.
Without being mindful of this natural habitual behavior, I have tended to break it all down in favor of building it all up, and that has resulted in a vast array of deficiencies, not only financially, but emotionally, and is certainly reflected in my relationship history.
Tearing it all down and clearing the land allows for new creations, new, higher ways of being and having, bigger and better ways to be what and who I am. But, if I just stop at clearing the land, and begin another search for something to tear down, aren't I going against the basic design and urge of the universe to create beyond measure? Yes, destruction is a form of creation, but creation comes before destruction.
What is the next level? What possibilities are there that can now come into being on this newly cleared land? How can I create new ways of being, new ways of doing things, and new ways of having?
Evolution requires destruction, but evolving itself requires vision and intent. It is easy to get enamored with discovering how and why it all fell down; but once that is done, it is time to take what was learned from the fall, and apply it to a glorious and inspired vision of what now could be.
So the world has fallen down. The pieces are at our feet. Now is the time to "step up", create a new vision of greatness, and carry on with the supreme knowing that the Universe has our back, and the angels are cheering us upward.
