So. On Friday I noticed the beginnings, just the bare beginnings, of a sore throat on the right side. No lymph swelling, however. That’s good. I began my usual protocols, customary two or three times every winter season — and, by the way, they always work, perhaps because I am in the habit of paying close attention to my 77-year-old body, and so “catch” symptoms early and adjust my life accordingly: Vitamin C, zinc, and elderberry tincture every few hours.
Yesterday my energy was somewhat depleted. So took a nap, also.
The sore throat (such as it was, only barely, remember), is now gone. Energy level back to normal. Will continue Vitamin C, zinc and elderberry tincture through today, and just to be on the safe side, will take another nap.
Oh, and I bought some disinfectant wipes to keep in my car.
As I deal with this slight sign of some kind of stress to my immune system, I think to myself: did the general fearful state that keeps washing through the collective get to me? Even me? Did it result in this slight symptom that I noticed and began to work with, right away?
I do think the poisoned psychic atmosphere is much more the actual root cause of any dis-ease hyped to the general public as a pandemic. And I will say it again: never have I seen such a coordinated MSM effort to drive the public into a fearful chaotic state. Clearly, there’s some kind of nefarious agenda at work. But should I be fearful of that agenda? Isn’t that just more fear-mongering, and this time, doing it to myself? See yesterday’s post.
Meanwhile, here’s an article on how the immune system is affected by the stress of fearful states of mind.
And here’s another contrarian’s view of the so-called coronavirus. Craig Murray (the one who is doing such a sterling job covering the Assange extradition trial) points to the root cause of FEAR, which is, of course, DEATH. The fact that each of us will die. And how terrified our entire civilization appears to be of this eventuality. So very Saturn/Pluto, this entire trumped-up scare tactic. Saturn: driving the same message in, over and over again, framing it in a certain constricted way. Pluto, the primal life force, which brings things into and out of form, i.e. driving the continuous birthing and dying process.
Consider this: 100% of those who contract coronavirus are going to die. 100% of those who do not contract coronavirus are also going to die. The difference in average life expectancy between the two groups will prove to be only very marginal. That is because the large majority of those who die of COVID-19 will already be nearing the end of life or have other health problems.
What worries me about the current reaction to coronavirus, is that it seems to reflect a belief that death is an aberration, rather than a part of the natural order of things. As the human species continues to expand massively in numbers, and as it continues casually to make other species extinct, it is inevitable that the excessive and crowded human population will become susceptible to disease.
As we see the catastrophic effects of human beings on the environment, including on other species and the climate, I am genuinely perplexed as to what are the underlying assumptions and goals of humankind. Do we really believe that medical science could and should eliminate all disease? There are numerous, well-funded medical scientists working very hard on research into the idea that ageing itself is a process that can be prevented. Because that is a notion very attractive to wealthy westerners, more money is being spent on preventing ageing than on fighting malaria and other tropical diseases. Where does this end? Do we really want a world – or at least a wealthy word – where everybody gets to be a centenarian? What are the effects of that on overall population, on demographics, economics and the allocation of finite resources including food and housing?
The mass hysteria around the current coronavirus is being driven by a societal rejection of the notion that the human species is part of the wider ecology, and that death and disease are unavoidable facts, with which it ought to be part of the human condition to come to terms.
Hey folks, let’s begin to work with Saturn/Pluto in a more creative way, shall we? Can we begin to look at how we can restructure our entire civilization to allow for more of the primal life force to flow through, fully and freely? What would that look like? And how can we begin to think this way in our own lives. What kind of personal, household, neighborhood, and community structures — both visible and invisible — can we build that will enhance our individual and common aliveness rather than detract from it? How can we move from Fear to LOVE, and stay there? It’s time.
