Video: Coronavirus Pandemic, Global Fears & the Role of Priests and Priestesses.

The world is reeling with thousands of deaths as a result of the current Corona Virus pandemic. No one is beyond reach of this virus.. Every aware human is facing this fear of death! Scientists & Health service professionals are beyond busy – doing their best to save lives and stop this pandemic. Many nations are in lock down to stop the spread of the virus. So what are we …Pagan priests & priestesses doing to help? Are we any good to anyone if we feel crippled by our own fears, shadows and the dark that’s lurking in human collective at the moment..? I have some reflections on these matters..and what we Priests & Priestesses should be doing! -Mani

Mindful Living & Loving during pandemic!

Mindful Living & Loving during pandemic!

Every moment has always been precious.. but till now many people had not realised it. Now suddenly, with their own fears and potential for death just around the corner of the next hour or day or week.. every moment has become important.. Because the next moment might be your last!

There are no guarantees … Anyone can catch this Covid-19 virus.. Anyone can recover..or anyone can die.. Young, middle aged, healthy, old or ones with existing medical conditions.. Practically anyone is a possible next victim..or if lucky..the next one to get immunity!!

At a time like this…take nothing for granted. Not the air you breath. Not the food you eat.. not the calls or contacts you make with another human (or pet).. or the hugs.. or kisses or smiles ..or tears. None of it.

We do not know if the last time we met someone…this morning or yesterday or last week is going to be the last time. They could die… or you could die.. or you might both survive!!

So take the moments seriously.. Be mindful of what you are doing. Don’t take your own fears or frustrations out on loved ones or friends. Let that be not the last thing between you.

Many are on isolation.. perhaps in different places.. different towns, cities, even countries. The phone calls and these online messages – facebook, whatsapp, emails, videos and messages are the bonds that keep people connected .. lovers, partners, parents, children.. Nearly all relationships of the heart.

As we know all too well.. the non-face-to-face communication is fraught with a minefields of misinterpretations!! One wrong word or sentence can end in a text-breakup.. or a family feud across continents..or a business falling apart!

Be Mindful…
Slow it down..
Be kind..
Be charitable..
Be compassionate..

Keep your humanity about you.
And we’ll survive this.. !!

Bright Blessings on this eve of an Aries New moon
