This morning I got up at 4:15 in order to join a global mass meditation as described here.
This might sound strange but actually I was a bit uncertain wether it was really a good idea to directly ask for dissolution of the Corona pandemic and healing of all patients. Why? When you see a person that has an obvious source of suffering (say, an extreme headache) and you want to help them, you might be tempted to do that with the intention of fixing the headache. This is however not a correct way of looking at this. The pain might be there for a reason and fixing it may deprive the person of the opportunity of learning an important life lesson. Or, the pain may only be a symptom of some deeper issue and by fixing the pain you only provide short-lived relief at best. Some even argue that providing help that is not asked for results in a karmic debt. This is why, in general, I will only give a very general healing intention to my sessions. I usually trust the energy to know what needs to be done, and I only do it with explicit permission from the individual.
So maybe there is a global lesson going on here for the human race? I don’t know, but it sure is something we are learning from, whether it was intended that way or not. This doesn’t mean I don’t see the tremendous suffering, but I also sense more unity, I see the teddy bears and hearts in the windows of the homes, people helping each other everywhere. There’s a lot more compassion. People are much more aware of each other because of the social distancing rules and as a result there is noticeably more greeting between strangers in public. On the other hand it’s the elderly that are even more lonely than they were and the poor people and refugees are about to get hit hard.
Like everything in life it’s probably best to not try to categorize this event as Good or Bad. It just is. Someone who lost a loved one to the illness will see this differently and my heart goes out to those people.
Back to the Global Peace meditation. It sure didn’t eradicate Corona and it didn’t heal all patients, but I was pleasantly surprised when I noticed the YouTube group chat going on below the video after it finished:
This went on for at least 45 minutes. I was touched to see the responses of people from all corners of the world, and this in itself was enough for me to be glad I joined in.
May all beings be healthy and compassionate.
