What if we are now living what we're supposed to live?
(instead of being distracted by modern life)
What if the modern (accelerated) lifestyle is an invention of the ego, and a consumerist system that is not aligned with our true essence?
What if we're in a consumption detox?
What if our brains and bodies are designed to do few things in a day?
Note: The first cause of death in modern times relate to heart disease and high blood pressure.
What if this concept of working "full time", is not aligned with our nature, and we pay a high price (on health and quality of life) to maintain it?
What if we realize that our true (biological) nature is that parents are closer to their young (children); instead of being outside all day, doing "more important things"?
What if we discover that the role of the government is not just to impose rules, but to support its citizens in difficult times?
What if we learn that happiness is inside us, and that we can learn to feel good, regardless of what is happening outside?
(sometimes personal work is required)
What if we are re-learning to live in harmony with nature?
It's sustainable to spend all day burning gasoline in the traffic jam, or overconsuming things we don't need.
What if the appropriate thing was always to allow nature to recover from the damage we do to it day by day?
What if this pandemic, instead of being a discomfort, is leading us to connect with who we really are?
What if from here, instead of losing, we're winning?
What if from now on we are going to start being who we are, instead of being as society wants us to be?
(or rather, the economic interests that control us).
What if we find out that we've been hypnotized and that we have the alternative to wake up?
What if it's time to get out of collective hypnosis?
If we look at this from another point of view, we may learn something, and get something important out of this pandemic.
Maybe we'll end up thanking her.
Maybe we end up evolving... or rather "de-volutionizing".
Perhaps, the mission of the human being is not to do things, but "Being-Human".
I hope everyone can do their best of the challenging situation we are experiencing.
Note: The human being has existed for hundreds of thousands of years. Throughout that time we have lived in a way very similar to how we are living now (with the pandemic).
Consumerism, unmeasured capitalism and globalization are inventions of the last century. Although they have their merits, they are economic and political systems that do not stand up. It is possible that a correction is being given that is returning us to our origin.
