The human race is under attack. We are being challenged from a force that has us believing it is so great that we are at its beck and call. We must live a certain way, we must have values that have been laid out for us by religions and governments, and sold to us via our media outlets. Everyday those values seem to change. They become more outlandish, more bizarre by the day.
Let us take virtue for example. What does it signify? It is our integral qualities, our moral fibre, the assets that we each hold that keep us honourable and good.
It is compassion, empathy, benevolence and most of all love. But now we have a new virtue to add to this list, accept for many of us it doesn’t quite sit right. Doesn’t feel as though it fits into the jigsaw puzzle of our soul.
Fear, once considered a mere emotion is now an exemplified state of being. This collective wave of emotion, that is now engulfing us. We have been sold the concept that unless you are afraid and proud to exhibit your fear as part of your set of values, that you are unkind, selfish and a danger to the rest of the world.
I have spoken to many people who honestly feel that if someone comes too close to them who isn’t wearing a mask, that that person is threatening them, and not only them but their family too. The mask becomes like a badge of honour, and there seems to be a genuine fear towards those who do not exhibit an outward sign of the same fear of the virus. It is the same feeling towards those who feel they would not want a vaccine, that the unvaccinated are unkind, or uncaring, and endangering the lives of others.
It is only serving to drive yet another wedge between us. To make us not only argue about it on social media, but in real life when we should be engaging and connecting, we are being forced to stay apart, to disconnect through our fear. And if you do not feel the fear, because your belief system doesn’t fit the narrative then you become the offender. You face fines from authorities, and fear from those who would once smile at you and offer a greeting, because you have been painted as the “new criminal” on the street.
But who is the real attacker? Is it the young father on the street who is running and laughing with his children, enjoying the fresh air? Or the quiet lady in the supermarket who is doing her shopping? Ask yourself this question from a very quiet place within you. Do these people really mean you harm? Do they honestly pose a threat? If your fear rises when you ask yourself, then ask it to sit quietly for a moment and maybe ask yourself the same question as if it were just six months ago. Your perception of a normal human being has radically changed, overnight. Are you really just fine with that?
It seems to me that every new advancement in our current way of living is making our real enemy stronger while we get weaker. When we sit behind our computer screen, or behind the wheel of our car, we are alone. In our own little bubble. We may feel empowered by this – with something mechanical to control and express ourselves from within the confines of, but really we are disconnected. This isn’t power, its weakness.
We are being deliberately disconnected from each other. Our very values have been attacked, destroyed and reassembled into something new. Something that drives giant wedges between us. You only have to turn on any news source to see how politics it ripping the world into shreds. People spitting hatred at each other because of the things we now feel are a part of our integrity.
Division. It has effected every echelon of our society, every race, every gender, every age group – our elderly when they need their family most around them, even our children are being forced to stay apart from each other, when we know how social behaviour develops during our formative years.
We are under attack. Not from aliens. Not from a virus. Not from politics. Not from the Elite, The Cabal, the Deep State. Not from racism, sexism or communism.
We are being tested as a race, collectively. ALL of us. Not just as individuals, although the fight back must come from each of us. The threat is real, it is a collective challenge – is our race strong enough to come through it? Our real enemy is time. It’s no longer on our side, it’s against us. We must wake up from our isolation, our self imposed solitary lifestyles and our egos, and communicate, connect, come together again, and realise that we are all the same, no matter what we are being fed by our politicians, and leaders, and what we are being sold in the media. We are the same. We are all human. We all have a beating heart in our chest, that pumps oxygenated red blood through our veins. We breathe the same air and live under the same sun. We all live here on one beautiful planet, together, and the only way we are going to survive as a race is together.
Its time to wake up. Not to any theory, but this time to the truth. The truth that is unity. Re-connect. Find a way to look beyond your fears. Give love, to as many as you can every single day. You partner, your children, your siblings, your parents, your friends. Tell them how much they mean to you, even though you may have differing views. Our views should not disconnect us. Then step outside your door and give more love to people who pass by in the street, a smile (even with a mask on, make eye contact, and let them know you are smiling), to the shop assistant who serves you, to the dog who looks on expectantly hoping for a little affection.
Love is our weapon against division; against hatred; against fragmentation of family, of society. Lets get time back on our side, lets rise to the challenge of imposed division and show it that and that the human heart is strong enough to defeat it.
All we have to do is re-connect, while we still have time.
“United we stand; divided we fall”
