Gatherings and, simultaneously, loneliness are the conditions of a writer’s life. ~ Jerzy Kosinski.
Technology has certainly come to our aid during the current times of lock-down difficulties. As gatherings have now been outlawed, meetings have become very much a digital affair. Personal contact plays a big part in our daily lives. When it’s taken away, we perhaps begin to realize how we took it for granted. Whilst it’s not akin to the grief of losing a loved one, it has created a very lonely place for some. Many of us are doing what we can to connect and offer what help may be needed. Whilst gatherings may no longer be allowed, it does seem to have planted seeds of true welfare for neighbours etc. The numbers volunteering for the NHS are a testament to the willingness of peoples caring attitude.
We can all gain from helping others, however that maybe. Putting yourself out there can also alleviate your own tension during the present situation. We heard recently that the difference between anxiety and excitement is simply the way we breathe. It’s very true in a practical sense, any online community you can join for meditation, yoga or physical exercise can help. The lack of parties and gatherings generally will disappoint a lot of people, especially children. We can only try and do what we can to make life happier for those who will inevitably lose out.
The need for consultations on relationships and family life generally will soar as we all become more restricted in our movements. Its vital that we keep our mind, body and spirit active during this difficult period. Everyone needs to stand firm in their beliefs and understanding. Unless you have a solid spiritual foundation, you are open to the vagaries of serious emotional problems. We recommend time in, and connection with nature to help everyone. That’s not necessarily easy for a lot of people right now. http://www.lionelpalatine.com
The likelihood of any festivals going ahead this year is very slim. Gatherings of any sort may be curtailed for a considerable time. It could be generations before the world gets over the economic problems that could potentially ensue. We’re all vulnerable as individual people and the planet as a whole. Not only from this current Corona virus but by the way we live. Unless we all begin to change the way we think about everything we consume, the future could look very bleak indeed.
Some are blaming the growing use of 5G internet has possibly aggravated the disease. Others are claiming conspiracy theories and the intentions of the higher echelons of wealth to create it. Some want to believe there is blame to apportion to the ‘wet markets’ and the Chinese culture. The simple reality is the world is overcrowded. The likes of Google and Facebook know more information about you than anyone ever before. There are positives and negatives in everything. We need duality and the varying degrees of opposites to create balance. Without awareness, acceptance and appreciation, we as a population are likely to suffer far worse problems to come.
