I’ve been mulling around in my head where I think we are going with this COVID-2019. Yes it will: upset our life as we know it, create huge pain and misery, have us questioning everything we thought we knew with certainty and generally question our lives and how we thought it unfold.
Tough heady thoughts indeed.
I’ve basically been mentally preparing for something like this for years. Still time to fight climate change, fight wealth disparity, prepare for peak oil, counter biosphere collapse, educate regarding our poisonous food/air/water. I didn’t see it as a coronavirus event rather a slow unwinding of our lives due to the Giant Turdballs.
The coronavirus simply, is now. Gotta deal with it. Most are not ready. Resilience will be the key. However that may be difficult as everything around you, all stable beacons of rational thought seem to disapear.
Time to grow up, and live. The alternate I find unacceptable.
I’m not sure how this will unravel, where it will hit hardest and who it will affect terminally. But, that’s life. It’s how its always been and we have allowed our modern comforts to shield us from this reality.
I need to stop spending days on end here, but am at the same time compelled to do something….Lead, Follow, or Get out of the Way, so to speak. I’ll let you know where I’m going on this later. For now I leave you with this article. Take 15 minutes of your owe-so-important day and read it. And think about where you see yourself in this new order coming. Kinda frightening but some crystal clear thinking. Which we have avoided for too long.
- Grab Your Bits and Shoulder Your Kits, We’re Going In! by Alexander Aston. “He describes how once the world has passed through the -narrow- bottleneck of the coronavirus and its effects on our societies, which are long overdue for a redo, and on the central bank-engineered distortions of the markets that are -make that were- supposed to be the foundation that allowed us to flourish, there will be a better world waiting.” And this is one way to look at it. There will be others.
Have at it. Press onward and upward.
