Corona comes like Shiva and Brahman, the destroyer and the creator. Corona comes like an alien invasion to destroy our comfortable assumption of what’s real. The great Comfort culture that we have created in America has been under attack since the 50s and it’s belief in Scientific Utopia. By now, (and I remember) according to the scientific fixation of the 50s we should all be living in a perfect utopia like the Jetsons.
Global Warming has cracked our belief that our scientific materialism will create paradise on earth. Instead, our good intentions are destroying the earth’s habitats. And now Corona comes to destroy our illusion about our own immortality and safety. Corona is destroying our cultural habitat.
Oh, and I should not fail to mention Trump as the destroyer. Brannon said Trump comes to destroy the administrative state, even the defense shield Obama had created for pandemics. (ironic)
Both Global Warming and Corona come to wake up Brahma, the creator aspect of the Hindu trinity. Shiva the destroyer, Vishnu the One that is Two, out of which Shiva and Brahma rise, and Brahma.
First comes Shiva, the destroyer. Now destruction comes in many ways. Just having a new member in your household can destroy old relationships and spacial relationships. Any upset is destruction. Shiva is always on the loose. Anytime we have negativity, a rub with the world, that is Shiva. And then Brahma comes with insight, invention, creation, discovery, a sudden fix of a problem, a new viewpoint. Brahma is everywhere Shiva is. They dance together.
But the fearful mind separates them. The comparing mind separates them. Why Me? This should not be happening. OMG.
In my viewpoint, Vishnu is the Buddha Mind that sees destruction and creativity as One. Everything is Just This.
If you are ironing your shirt and ironing y our money, what is the difference really? You hold the iron. You hear it’s steam breathing. You layout the money/shirt, and iron it. What is its meaning? Is that crazy?
If there were not Corona as the context, ironing your money would be insane. But with Corona, it’s perfectly sane. How knows what was on that hand that just gave you that money. Did you lick your thumb when you counted the bills?
Sanity depends upon the context in which the act is performed. Corona changes the context in which we perform actions, changes the meaning of everything. Corona is not good or evil. Corona is just change, rapid and unexpected change, to be sure, and we must change because Corona says Change or Die.
Deny Corona and you cannot change behaviors necessary for survival. Denying Corona is like denying lung cancer when you are a chain smoker.
