Love in the Time of Corona

A few people have sent me questions asking how to pray about Corona virus.

In short you don´t.

That might seem a bit strange but let me explain.  We have the belief that Father Mother is not present in the human realm – not because He has given up on it (God is not a person – he is a Force described in many different ways) but because the human realm is a world of simply wrong thinking, a world which is formed by man creating his own lusts and desires – holding the view that he is the starting point of everything and that what he sees with his eyes and his touch is real and is effectively his world. It is an illusionary place with its own rules and desires (and 24 hour reporting). It bears no comparison to reality except perhaps when man catches sight or an idea of eternity and even then it is usually seen within the sensual realm of the potential of the human existence.

It is not possible to pray about something which doesnt exist – and it is not just about Corona, it is part and parcel of this whole wide belief system that Love/God, Father Mother is not present in our lives and what we see with our eyes is what we get. In this case 60 years and death.  I believe it was the Buddha who said “With our thoughts we make our world”. So a world based on investment return or what Tom Hanks is doing today is simply not sustainable, at some point it will fall. But have no joy or sadness over this because it will reinvent itself – illusion generally does that.

  1. God does not see this – so you cant beg him to take it away – and if he is Love (instead of a guy on a throne) – your prayer can´t reach God as a human mind.
  2. God is not your slave – why would he (even if he had a human mind) listen and decide to obey you? Human prayers have a wrong starting point – the human realm.

The way to deal with this issue is to displace the whole system not just a perceived virus within it. 

Closing your eyes, even for one minute, quietening your mind with a scripture like “I and my Father are one” or “He Leadeth Me” – without any kind of desire is enough for you to hear the voice of Peace – quietly listening and to let God get into the picture. The best thing you can do right now is to switch off the roaring lion telling you that we are all going to die and simply close your eyes even for 2 minutes. When you feel the Peace, you will know that God is on the scene – that is enough to bring change. Try to do this hourly – you will be amazed at the results.

When your whole identity becomes that of Gods, your world changes, including your perception and what you see around you.
