Yesterday’s email was met with a thunderclap of applause, based on the number of positive responses I received.
Yet, I would be remiss to overlook the fact that some folks didn’t agree with my main point, which was… enough of the fear porn.
One person wrote an “orange man bad,” diatribe. I deleted him.
A doctor friend presented some startling “anecdotal evidence” about why I should be afraid. What was it? His 90-year old grandmother in-law has “never seen anything like this.”
el Furecat replied: “My 97-year old father says he’s been through a lot worse.”
Indeed, he has.
In no way shape or configuration am I saying you should throw all caution to the wind.
My point is simple: Enough of the fear porn.
Fear weakens your energetic field, taxes your internal organs, compromises your immune system, puts you into a cortisol-induced catabolic state, and messes with your psychological well-being.
Thankfully, I have other doctor friends who lean toward optimism. They don’t buy into the fear porn. They understand the power of sorcery and the deliberate and intentional damage it can do.
You may think that viruses have tremendous energy, and they do – but the power of words and mental imagery are far more powerful.
Words have far more creative power than a virus. Words can be used to uplift as well as destroy, they can be used to create calmness or to push panic.
Those who instill and install doom and gloom know the power of words. They understand that people hear words and turn them into mental pictures. And they know that these mental pictures create FEELINGS of positivity or negativity. They also know that people will act, react or do nothing – based upon words and how they are delivered.
You can create layer upon layer of fear by telling people the following: Even if we get through this round of the virus, which is probably going to kill a minimum of X people, it will come back in the fall, and it will be even stronger than it was, and those who think they are immune to it will find out they aren’t, and they will get this virus again, and this time it will probably kill X people, and it will keep coming back, probably two or three times a year, for the next 18-24 years, and it will strip all of us of our DNA, RNA, T-cells, our grandparents, then our parents, then our siblings, then our children and their children’s children, and so on. After this it will attack your cats and dogs. In fact, it may kill your dog this fall, and your cat soon afterward. If you have more than one dog or cat, I suggest you euthanize all of them NOW because you don’t want to go through the horror of losing all your pets. And if you have other types of pets besides cats and dogs, they’re going to get hit, too. They might miss the first or second wave, but without a doubt they will get hit. And there won’t be anything you can do about it. So please, I beg of you, wash your hands, don’t touch your face and wait for the vaccine.
If you think the paragraph above is far-fetched, ask yourself if, six months ago, you would have believed the “far-fetched” narrative we’re hearing and living in today.
What people need now is the same thing they needed six months ago, a year ago, 100 years ago. And what is that: a reason to believe.
Here is what I believe, i.e. my prediction: I believe this virus will come and go the same way all other viruses come and go, regardless of how it was created or where it originated. At the end of this year, the common flu will still be responsible for far more deaths worldwide. Same goes for cancer, diabetes, heart disease and auto accidents. I believe we will also discover that the predictions on the number of deaths won”t be even close to the eventual actuality. And lastly, the drugs that will cure this virus will be the ones that certain people have been saying are either dangerous or won’t work.
That’s my Zen-atative super-intuitive prediction on this situation.
Last of all, should you stay at home? Yes.
Should you practice social distancing? Yes.
Should you wash your hands? Always.
But when you do all of the above, do them with optimism, with faith and with confidence – instead of in a state of fear and panic.
You are stronger than this and every other type of virus.
Here endeth the lesson.
