CoronaVirus Pandemic

- sent to me here at the lakeside sequester by my stepfather -

An Imagined Letter from Covid-19 to Humans

Stop. Just stop.
It is no longer a request. It is a mandate.
We will help you.


We will bring the supersonic, high speed merry-go-round to a halt
We will stop
the planes
the trains
the schools
the malls
the meetings
the frenetic, furied rush of illusions and “obligations” that keep you from hearing our
single and shared beating heart,
the way we breathe together, in unison.
Our obligation is to each other,
As it has always been, even if, even though, you have forgotten.


We will interrupt this broadcast, the endless cacophonous broadcast of divisions and distractions,
to bring you this long-breaking news:
We are not well.
None of us; all of us are suffering.
Last year, the firestorms that scorched the lungs of the earth
did not give you pause.
Nor the typhoons in Africa,China, Japan.
Nor the fevered climates in Japan and India.
You have not been listening.
It is hard to listen when you are so busy all the time, hustling to uphold the comforts and conveniences that scaffold your lives.
But the foundation is giving way,
buckling under the weight of your needs and desires.
We will help you.
We will bring the firestorms to your body
We will bring the fever to your body
We will bring the burning, searing, and flooding to your lungs
that you might hear:
We are not well.


Despite what you might think or feel, we are not the enemy.
We are Messenger. We are Ally. We are a balancing force.
We are asking you:
To stop, to be still, to listen;
To move beyond your individual concerns and consider the concerns of all;
To be with your ignorance, to find your humility, to relinquish your thinking minds and travel deep into the mind of the heart;
To look up into the sky, streaked with fewer planes, and see it, to notice its condition: clear, smoky, smoggy, rainy? How much do you need it to be healthy so that you may also be healthy?
To look at a tree, and see it, to notice its condition: how does its health contribute to the health of the sky, to the air you need to be healthy?
To visit a river, and see it, to notice its condition: clear, clean, murky, polluted? How much do you need it to be healthy so that you may also be healthy? How does its health contribute to the health of the tree, who contributes to the health of the sky, so that you may also be healthy?

Many are afraid now.
Do not demonize your fear, and also, do not let it rule you. Instead, let it speak to you—
In your stillness, listen for its wisdom.
What might it be telling you about what is at work, at issue, at risk, beyond the threats of personal inconvenience and illness?
As the health of a tree, a river, the sky tells you about quality of your own health, what might the quality of your health tell you about the health of the rivers, the trees, the sky, and all of us who share this planet with you?


Stop.
Notice if you are resisting.
Notice what you are resisting.
Ask why.


Stop. Just stop.
Be still.
Listen.
Ask us what we might teach you about illness and healing, about what might be required so that all may be well.
We will help you, if you listen.

a common childhood disease is killing who? Stop putting dirty things in your mouth. Take care of yourself and allow people to care.
You probably live on stolen land, in a fake country with zero consciousness. All the while perpetually committing genocide against the native people blissfully living a consumerist culture wondering why mass shootings occur.

Idea!

A lactating female that has been exposed to covid-19 is generating antibodies

But will it matter?

The following article is hinting at the death blow to the economic realities the whole country faces.
And why ts lost me as a customer
This country ain’t going to be the same after this.
https://hbr.org/2020/03/what-are-compan ... oronavirus

https://riskandinsurance.com/top-five-u ... ble-risks/

https://www.nytimes.com/2020/03/05/busi ... rance.html

I’d say close now and get out while the getting is good. If a company like amazon hasn’t done anything in preparedness until now we’re all holding the bag.



Google has even realized its own liability, goodbye freedom of information, does anyone even know what a sticky clause is?

It was nice to have a member tell me I was just handwringing
They told me the same stuffs when I railed about climate change in the rants.
Just no vision, intelligence or heart in the car hobby. It was fun, while it lasted. But Germanic centric racist stuffs has always been a bit much for me.

Really should been worried about what I have never told you.
So bored with sheeple telling the wolves to be calm.

Troll indeed. That’s like admitting you’re totally powerless over another’s brain.
You probably live on stolen land, in a fake country with zero consciousness. All the while perpetually committing genocide against the native people blissfully living a consumerist culture wondering why mass shootings occur.

You remind me of my president. Self-referential to the extreme and hair-trigger to take offense and insulting to others. I have little patience for this, "Germanic centric racist stuffs", no. Don't go there.
Consider this a warning.
