There are many lessons that can be taken from COVID-19 pandemic, but perhaps the first and foremost is the lesson of love. Love is the greatest and most powerful emotion; difficult to understand, much less describe. Perhaps it can be explained as divine energy radiating in all things. It is said, love conquers all and some believe it is better to have lost in love than to never have loved at all. We are all spiritual beings having a physical experience. We can see how easy it is to control the masses through media and how we are taking part, and involved in a psychological warfare of fear.
From a spiritual perspective, it can be used as a catalyst for those to decide who they really are, positive or negative. Ask yourself, are you living in fear, despair and hate or in love and compassion while helping others cope? People of all walks of life, regardless of belief system including Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist or Atheist, are all one people living on earth to learn the ways of love and wisdom. Perhaps this is our time to unite and support one another instead of spewing hate and discontent. We have all heard of patience and lack of; this is the time for calm and patience and not let the unruly mind take control, and certainly not to believe everything you hear.
Love is what our ancient teachers have been trying to convey to us for centuries. The ancient Chinese sage Lao Tzu said “Nothing but good comes to him who loves others as he loves himself” while Buddha tells us “When you see yourself in others, it is impossible to hurt anyone else.” Krishna said “to Me, all beings are the same. I hate none, and no one is more dear to Me than another.” and of course Jesus tells us, “Love your neighbor as yourself.”
There are 7.7 billion of us on this planet and within each is a Divine Power waiting to be awaken. Most disregard this concept simply because it is not something the five senses nor scientific evidence can detect. Our emotions, feelings and thoughts create our reality more than we will ever realized until now. Consider the COVID-19 as a humanity reset and now is the time to practice Love. Consider we are all one and how our thoughts, emotions and actions are creating and generating the global consciousness. We have free-will to choose love or fear.
