How the Coronavirus is Boosting our EQ

The coronavirus is helping us finally understand how the system works, and our purpose in it.

Before we start applauding ourselves, let’s look at some post-disaster scenarios. If you go back to Chernobyl today, you will see how the area is flourishing. How is that even possible? Because there are no longer humans living there. The universe has endless healing and balancing forces. When humans do not interfere, there is total harmony.

Why We Must Connect — Now More Than Ever

We must maintain our connection at a time like this.

The Coronavirus has brought all kinds of restrictions with it, and this will be remembered as a time of isolation, separation, and distancing. Beyond closures at various levels that governments have put into place, countries are distancing themselves by closing their gates to each other. Even at the private level, people need to keep their physical distance and prevent unnecessary gatherings. In Israel no more than ten people can gather — what will be tomorrow, nobody knows.

In the near future, we’ll see how it is precisely these preventive measures we are taking now, which will bring us closer together in the future.

If we take China as an example, the isolation technique has proven itself because the number of people infected and dying is in decline. So apparently right now there is nothing more to be done than self-evident preventative measures, which means that if we have to move away from each other to keep one another safe — then it is definitely a positive thing. But it’s only positive as a preventative treatment, without really getting to the root of this problem.

Positive Renewal in the World

Addressing the results that are being revealed is good, but only provides temporary relief. It won’t solve anything in the long term. The only way to lead to positive renewal in the world is by dealing with the root of the problem. The root of the problem existed long before the breakout of this virus. Now we have a situation where we’re finally being forced to address it.

It turns out that the root of the problem of the world, does not come from the Coronavirus. The virus is the result of a distortion in nature. What is the single part in the system that can cause change? Beyond our mental and emotional capacities, only man has the ability to make calculations and alter future processes. So besides humans, who else can change anything in the system, the lions? The zebras?

I think we can all agree that man is the chosen living creature in all of nature. That if something was created, it was created in our honor. This has to do with preventive elements as well, because we are the only creatures capable of taking responsibility and managing what’s happening here — for better or for worse. This is the point where we also realize that we’re responsible for the future of the world.

So if it all depends on us, it would be wise to start treating each other according to nature’s rule, “the individual and collective are equal”.

That is, on the one hand, we have to maintain the uniqueness of every detail, since every person is essentially a small world. And on the other hand, the individual derives their entire development from the whole. As more and more parts are gathered into the system, the whole becomes larger and larger, and this expanded perception of reality is also expressed in the individual.

So let’s not get confused by the temporary divisive measures to prevent the spreading of the virus, which are currently distancing us from one another.

This disaster has expanded our capacity to care and be concerned for others, and this is what will bring us to the next and truly exciting stage of our development.

In the near future, we’ll see how it is precisely these preventive measures we are taking now, which will bring us closer together in the future. This disaster has expanded our capacity to care and be concerned for others, and this is what will bring us to the next and truly exciting stage of our development. Why is it exciting? Because we’ll finally understand how the system works, and our purpose in it.

To succeed we must gradually prepare stronger and more stable networks of connection everywhere — in the home, at work, and with friends.

At the end of the day, we must not forget that we really don’t have anything else except one another. A bright future awaits us after the Corona crisis — a great new transition for both the world and man.
