Here in Ft Worth they've brought in refrigerated trucks to store the dead bodies - shutting down businesses again - people struggling everywhere - stressed
It' real where I live. The hospital around the corner from my house is running out of ICU beds to treat acute patients.
You have 6.5 million active cases in US as compared to 360,000 in India, for example. You should fear Corona more than Allah. We have two of our people in US.
And the implication is that we are required to be afraid on behalf of other people -- that it is our social responsibility to be very afraid.What I really don't like is people trying to project their fears on me (at work, my supervisor keeps saying, "we are all afraid" Uh, speak for yourself...
For the most part, I agree with what you are saying. What I definitely know is that any time some one or some thing is trying to scare you in any way, shape, or form, that is a huge red flag. The Bible even constantly talks about not being afraid, having faith in God, etc. My faith as a Yogi says the same thing in the Bhagavad Gita, and most likely all other religions in their own way in their sacred writings.. What I really don't like is people trying to project their fears on me (at work, my supervisor keeps saying, "we are all afraid" Uh, speak for yourself...Others can act however they like, but I'm not letting a virus run my life. The only one that runs my life is God.
Everything on TV is to entertain (even the news), to make money and get high ratings, and the media will say ANYTHING for high ratings. The sadness and tragedy of this is there are consequences in these actions--the spiritual principle of cause and effect where intent and actions of an individual does influence the future of that individual.
Instead of trying to scare people, or the ignorance of trying to project one's fears on another person, one should approach this (as with everything else in life) with love. Believing in something bigger than this virus, knowing history so not to be so surprised about this thereby taking comfort in knowledge that this too shall pass.
But unfortunately, many people have replaced God with CNN and the like, so I don't talk much about the virus at all anymore. If people want to be afraid, live in hysterical fear, or live just in fear, that is their choice in life, that is their preferred path in life, so I let them be.
Good for them. My wife is working in said hospital, and they are not in the position to belittle the situation. Staff is short because so many are sick, and the rest are overworked.They've been making claims about mass hospital bed/ice lack of space, hospitals being filled up too much...since the beginning of this whole thing. I've heard reports from people...including nurses and doctors saying that the media and govt claimed their hospitals were over run...and these individuals have said ...this is a load of baloney.
I can understand that. Here's a thought: what about dying in fear?
I would agree, no need to fear Covid 19 or panic over it. At the same time however, I think it is quite foolhardy to deny it even exists and encourage others to ignore safeguards.
God charged us with looking out for one another. So, while Covid 19 does not worry me in the least, I'm more than willing to do my part to protect my fellow man.
Mat 21:21 ...if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done...
God didn't say ignore that mountain or the mountain isn't really there. He said it is within us to remove it. The way I see it, Covid 19 is like that mountain and by doing our part, we can remove it.
