The Blessings of the Corona Crisis

These days which are seemingly like those of the Black Death in the Middle Ages are feeling for some of us like a prison (house arrest) or like the stripping away of everything that was giving a sense of comfort (like going to the sports club).

But for others of us these days are the beginning of a new era. A time when humans are giving more attention to their environment, like appreciating clean air (less planes are flying nowadays) and where the economy is more focussed on the balance and welbeing of everyone, instead of that the high profits are going to a small group of wealthy, white men.

So how are these days for me?

I am really enjoying it. I understand that it is easy for me to talk like this, because the Corona Virus has not come very close to me. Happily my neigbours and family members are still healthy … but even when it would come closer … I am really enjoying the beautiful blue skies and the brilliant sunlight. Did someone notice that the sunlight seems to be brighter these days? The Spring is surprising me with an abundance of flowers, colours, smells and beautiful, little, flying animals.

And I am enjoying the company of my kids. These days I have gone far more times to the playground, which is laying for our house, than anytime before ๐Ÿ™‚

So yes … please … even when you are experiencing financial difficulties … even when you are feeling stressed .. please try to focus on Life and Light.

I know for some of us it is very difficult …

But please do’nt let your mind distract you. Please let the worries of daily life not overgrow you.

You and I … We are far stronger than our ‘weaknesses’ and tough moments.

There is a Power dwelling inside our bodies which is divine. It is giving us humans a divine design and ongoing energy. ‘God’ lives inside us … Is present in our blood, our veins and in our muscles …

So please, doโ€™nt be distracted by the form of us humans.

There is a Presence inside us that is shining and hiding its Light behind our (facial) features. Our characteristics are less fixed than our most rigged thoughts and feelings …

So, please be comforted … And try to be a comfort for yourself and others …

Love yourself … and love God inside others … Humans, animals, trees and flowers …

There is and will be always an abundance of Light and Life.

Even in our – by our minds – obscured ‘dark days’ … ๐Ÿ™‚

Turn on the lights!

How many lamps can you connect to this and keep them on?
(the answer is the number that is the symbol of eternity which is unchanged, even when it is upside down ๐Ÿ™‚ )
