@liminal_luke These are some very interesting questions and I like to answer them from my perspective and invite others to invite those from theirs. What has been most difficult for you about the pandemic? The feeling that the world has changed forever. Like the feeling after 9/11 but even stronger. We all seemed isolated and the feeling of freedom was lost. I also missed going to clients, both being in a different place and talking to people. Being with my wife for 24/7 was also hard. After a while the lines blur where I end and she begins. What have you learned about yourself during the pandemic? That I want to help people more. I aided a lot of people with filling in their PUA. It got me to think of getting a law degree and made me go back to school to get my Bachelor degree. Although it was already an ongoing process, I finally realized I am an artist in nature. I also learned that I neglected the fact that I am an introvert and need alone time to recharge and accomplish things. I further learned how "busy" hectic society is, and that is not healthy or productive. How have you maintained connections with other people during the pandemic? I froze my ass of in my backyard in this Chicago winter, but we still had people over. I also connected to people by helping them with paperwork. I still talked to people, only outside instead of inside. I used my phone more. How have you taken care of yourself during the pandemic? I started college, walked in nature and had the time to rethink my life. I would say that for us the pandemic had a huge silver lining. I made a home office in the basement and realized I needed this secluded space for years. I also shifted my goals from what society considers successful to what my soul considers fruitful. I also see a shift in the people around me. A change in priorities.
Greetings bums, This topic is intended as a platform for providing alternative outlooks on the current pandemic wrecking havoc in various ways - but first and foremost in people's minds. Comprehensible as their concern for their well-being may be, little is it understood that the very focus on apocalyptic scenarios - powerfully reinforced by the messages governments and media are constantly giving out - can only contribute to their eventual manifestation. It goes without saying that lots of people's hopes rest once again on conventional medicine coming up with a vaccine and/or cure for covid-19, when as a matter of fact methods that could treat it effectively have been known for a long time, but are woefully neglected by mainstream physicians and the general public. We may well go into those methods in due course, but let's start this discussion by reviewing the words of Dr. Edward Bach concerning the nature of infectious diseases. Known today mostly as the founder of a widely popular method of treatment using flower remedies, it should be noted that Dr. Bach started his career as a successful bacteriologist and vaccinologist and was gradually lead to a metaphysical understanding of illness and health. Due to his background, we can assume that the man was talking from personal experience and observation when he wrote: From: Edward Bach: Heal Thyself, ch. 7 I feel these words remain just as true today as when they were written down back in 1936...
