I don't know if anyone is reading my blogs, but I need to write - for myself if anything.
It is hard to stay silent when the world is going into shutdown under martial law. And no one is fighting it. We just entered the Warrior Wind today on the New Moon. The Warrior is about carrying the burden of truth, bursting through our illusions and being accountable for our words and actions. Humans are under a mass illusionary spell, being hypnotized to follow orders.
When will humanity accept that illness, aging and death is a natural part of LIFE?
The fear and panic around a mild virus... yes mild... if you look realistically without the fear and panic... the numbers are relatively low compared to the amount of people on the planet.
In all species.... human, animals and plant... Nature finds a way to cull the weak and sick, the old and dying. In the wild, wolves kill the weak and old caribou and deer. It is only since humans decided they were above nature, better than other creatures... that they began to fight against Nature. That is when we began to do more harm than good to ourselves, our animals relations and the planet.
Behind the intense health and fitness craze is the deadly fear of being vulnerable, weak, sick and dying. I understand it is scary to be vulnerable. But in the modern world today, people don't even take care of their sick or their Elders... they hide them away in institutions to be at the mercy of strangers, for better or for worse. And now suddenly, they are shutting everything down in the guise of protecting these same Elders. And those dying are not allowed to have their loved ones beside them in the hospitals. In Indigenous traditions, there are sacred roles, those who care for the dying.
It seems that humanity is digging itself into a big hole that they can't get out of and there is no turning back! But what if we each took small steps in our little part of the world to bring change, a long-lasting change, not just instant gratification or the attempt to ward off things that we dread.
I know that my perspective is unusual but I don't agree with the government sanctions. If I get sick, I will either recover or die... it's that simple. Maybe it is easier for me to say because I am old. But my health is still good and I much to do before I die. Still, I know I need to be ready at any given moment. I faced my death at age 32 and learned not to fear it. In fact, it was incredible!
Anyways, I know it's not my time yet. But I am willing to die if it means helping to reduce that overpopulation, which is what nature is trying to do. But we are fighting her all the way, as usual.
Did anyone ever ask the Elders if they wanted to survive this pandemic? I realize that there are young people getting it too. But we need to look at our fear of death. Death does not just belong to the old. We are preventing those who are meant to die from going where they need to go. There is a mass migration of souls that need to leave that planet at this time.
One of the problems is that most people do not believe in reincarnation or the afterlife. Or they fear the unknown. If you are reading this, you are probably a believer in something bigger than yourself, something or someone that guides our life, our death and our destiny.
But how many people follow their true destiny? I remember one of my teachers, Seneca Elder Twylah Nitsch, saying that if you are not part of the solution, you are part of the problem. In my mind, the problem is not the virus, it's the fear and panic reaction to it. And the results of these attitudes and actions... the closing of schools, businesses etc, as well as the economic and psychological effects this is having on us all. Childrens help lines are on overload because of the trauma they are feeling with the public reaction to the virus. Stress can kill too. Imagine telling children not to touch their faces. This will leave an imprint on them for life. We are teaching them to see their bodies as diseased, contaminated, untouchable.
I go out for a walk and see maybe one or two people on the street. They won't look at me as if they fear a glance will make them sick. I smile and say hello. I will not be part of the mass hysteria. I will continue to do what I do, to laugh and live and remain calm. I will accept if I get sick. I will accept when it is my time to die. Not to say I won't take precautions, I don't plan to flirt with illness and death.
Dream as if you will live forever. Live as if you will die tomorrow, because one day that will be true.
Enjoy your loved ones, help out your neighbours, take care of yourself, but don't buy into the fear and panic. Breathe! We cannot fight those who are imposing control over our lives, but we don't have to believe everything they say or follow everything they do. This too shall pass! And life will go on, but things will never be quite the same again. The control measures put in place will not go away completely. This is the new world we are entering. We will survive and learn how to adapt.
Be safe, be well and love one another.
