When I think of Covid19, I dont think of a virus. Instead, I think of deception from those we depend on for knowledge and understanding.
Every which way I turn I hear so many different stories. I don’t know what is truth and what is fiction.
Many people of this world have their own agendas for spreading their version of the truth. Some even knowingly spread untruths for the mere sake of creating uproars in our society.
Then you have the followers who give these monsters power over them. They’ll listen to anyone who makes the story interesting and can keep up the most chaos.
While oblivion is not a good place to be, I wish we lived in a society where our people would not be so easily influenced by just any old thing that is put before them.
I think a happy medium between oblivion and utter pandemic would be a nice compromise.
When I think of a young child who is introduced to a food item for the first time and doesn’t think twice before he devours it, it reminds me of some of the people in our society who are doing that very thing with the information that is put before them.
Then, you have the finicky child who picks and chooses what he will and will not ingest. No matter how much you try to persuade that child to eat this food, he just refuses to eat it. That child has the intelligence to choose what he is willing to accept.
We as a society should be more like the finicky child and know what we should take at face value and refuse to hear the rest so we can avoid letting ourselves become blinded by things that may be misguiding us into this dark place that is fast developing all around us.
If someone says “I want you to drink this poison”, will you drink it? I think you would be greatly opposed to doing so. Well, in my opinion, poisonous information is no different because it can be just as deadly as that poisonous drink if we don’t compartmentalize the information we receive and throw out the bad stuff with the trash.
I don’t know what to believe anymore but I am currently not allowing myself to become obsessed or overwhelmed with grief and fear over what is or is not happening in our society.
I see people panicking and running rampant over the first bit of information they receive and its sad to see the people of our society being so self destructive and turning against each other.
We were taught in kindergarten that if our clothes ever caught on fire, we were to stop drop and roll to put out the fire because if we ran the fire would just get bigger and bigger until if devours us.
This is what is happening in our society, people are running with rumors without assessing what they are receiving, ultimately being devoured by the chaos.
I think our society should stop and think about what we are doing before reacting and compounding the emotional fires of this world. It saddens me what is happening.
We should drop all the nonsense and stop creating unnecessary chaos, and roll with the punches by doing the best we can to help each other rather than hurting each other because at the end of the day we are all God’s children and we are all negatively impacted by all this destruction.
Whether directly or indirectly we all pay the price eventually. Sadly, our children will probably pay the biggest price in the long run because of the way we are influencing them.
Just something to think about…
