Can we agree on something? Despite which side of the many fences of Cvd you are on, can we agree that we have been living in chaotic times for the past two years. Is Cvd real or is it a fake narrative? Do vaxeens work or do they kill people? Do masks work or do they cause more lung infections? Do lockdowns help or do they cause more damage? Does the government have the right to put us in lockdown or do we have the right to make our own decisions? What you believe relies almost entirely on what you listen to through the media. If we were not told there was a “bug” out there, we would never have known about it. I mean, honestly – think about this – if you had never been told that there was a “bug” out there that was potentially deadly, would you have known about it?
Yes, a lot of people got sick with symptoms that could have been related to a bad flu season in prior years. Do people die from the flu every year? Absolutely! We would have believed it was the flu based on what we had experienced in the past if we had not been told it was something different. If we had been told that there was a very contagious “bug” out there and the way to combat it was to make sure we were getting lots of vitamin C, air out our homes and get as much fresh air as possible, to spend at least 20 minutes out in the sunshine without sunscreen so our bodies could make more vitamin D and get plenty of exercise to build the immune system, how different would our world be? If we had been told that if we became ill, use common sense, rest and drink plenty of fluids and we would get through it unless we had additional underlying conditions that may require us to seek medical treatment. What if we had been told that once you recovered from the “bug”, you would have natural immunity to this particular “bug” for years to come? How different our world would be!
We wouldn’t have shut down small businesses around the world which caused many thousands of them to fail in the end. We wouldn’t have been scared out of our wits to go outside. We wouldn’t have been locked out of our places of worship. We wouldn’t have stopped seeing our loved ones and we wouldn’t have stopped living our lives. Would the death rates been any different? I don’t think so. Would the emotional toll have been less without the restrictions? I believe there would have been much less emotional toll on the entire population of the world. Have we allowed our children to be hurt by all of this? Absolutely! There is no question about this topic. Our children have absolutely been damaged beyond our wildest beliefs by what our governments have done to us. Is this the last time in history our “ruling elite” will sabotage us? Absolutely not! Remember from my last post, in order for the “ruling elite” to remain in power, they have to keep us enslaved. How do they keep us enslaved? The make us feel afraid. They instill fear so that we will look to them to take away the fear. They do this through the narrative they push.
So, the question is this: how do we find wisdom during such times of chaos?
First of all, what is wisdom? The definition of wisdom according to the Oxford Dictionary is:
“The soundness of an action or decision with regard to the application of experience, knowledge, and good judgment.
The quality of having experience, knowledge, and good judgment; the quality of being wise.
‘listen to his words of wisdom’
From this we are able to discern that to have wisdom one must look at the situation from all sides, compare it to past experiences and lessons learned from past experiences and to use good judgement. In other words, don’t immediately fall into the trap of fear. Instead, step back from the situation and thoughtfully assess it. Resist the emotional urge to become panicked when we are given a situation that is meant to instill such panic. Instead of blindly following the crowd and running wildly with the crowd in whatever direction everyone else is running, take just a few minutes to assess the terrain. Take time to notice that just ahead of the stampeding herd is a cliff. While the herd is panicked and running as fast as possible away from the threat, they have their heads turned looking back behind them to see if the threat is gaining on them. While their heads are turned, they fall en mass off the cliff to their deaths. Would it have been better if the crowd had first questioned the narrative and actually looked to see if there truly was a threat? For example, if you are sitting in your house watching TV and all the sudden you smell smoke. Do you blindly start screaming that the house is on fire, run out into the street while calling 911 or do you take a quick look around to see where the smoke is coming from. Oh! I see I left something on the stove that is burning and causing smoke. Let me calmly remove the pan from the heat, turn off the heat, let things cool down and return to my TV program. In my opinion, the second situation would be better. By panicking and running away, things could have escalated and turned out much worse. While you were running out the door and calling 911, whatever was on the stove could have actually gotten hot enough to catch fire. Then the fire trucks arrive, break down the door, spray your entire house with water which ruins everything and you end up suffering fire damage as well as water damage. You could easily be without a home to live in and all your possessions that you worked so hard to accumulate could be lost. This is what panic does. It causes us to make unwise decisions.
In the case of Cvd, we had the option of using wisdom to assess the situation. We could have acknowledged that there was a “bug” and looked around. Were people dying on the streets? Were there so many dead bodies that they had to be loaded on carts and hauled off to mass graves? No. OK, so this must not be as bad as the Black Death suffered by the people during the Middle Ages. Do I know anyone who got the virus? Maybe yes. Did they die? Most likely not. If they did die, did they have underlying causes? Most likely yes. Is death inevitable in every single one of our lives? Absolutely. So, if people are not dropping dead in the streets, the homeless population is not dropping dead in droves and people seem to be recovering from the “bug”, do I really need to panic? With a little bit of discernment and wisdom we could see that if we took reasonable precautions such as good nutrition, taking care of ourselves if we felt ill and using good hygiene, all the chaos around the world could have been avoided. Of course, if the fear and chaos had been avoided, would the “ruling elite” have suffered? Absolutely.
