Corona: An alternate perspective



It is a fact that about 38 trillion bacterias and 380 trillion viruses already live inside our body. Corona virus is a pathogen, the kinds that are believed to be attacking us. From what I have understood about it, is that it is also a virus, that can live / survive only inside a living organism. However, since its an aggressive being, the way it behaves in the body becomes so overwhelming that the body starts to feel attacked. Hence the immune system gets into a fighting mode because it wants to throw out this attacker. However, the virus itself just wants to live or co-habit. Its not attacking, its just this guest who wants to get comfortable in your home and make it its own home.

However, we fear it because we see it as the one who has attacked our comfort zone. We have a mental, emotional and comfort zone, the essence of which is encapsulated in the word ‘home’. So within our body, the virus is trying to create home for itself whilst our immune system wants to kill it and protect its home.

If you think deeply, what is another way to deal with this virus? Most logically, the answer I feel is to ‘accommodate’ it within ourselves. Viruses are known to mutate themselves into milder versions of themselves in many cases. This theory makes me wonder, what if we become less defensive to protect our current identity? What if we allow ourselves to be thrown into a little discomfort? What if we let go of the idea of a well chalked out life? What if we embrace and accept strangers and welcome them to our homes? What if we open our hearts to a bit of unconditional love?

If this can be done, as a healer, I feel our immune system will not have to fight the virus but in fact the virus will mutate itself to stay in our bodies for as long as it is comfortable and leave when its role of pushing us to our new sense of being is done. 

I watched a video by Sadhguru that initiated this thought process and I further researched to see this video that finally gave me a sense of direction regarding this concept. 

I know many people will not agree to me. I am not a scientist nor a medical professional so some of my stuff may not be medically accurate but I am a healer who believes in the power of love that each one of us holds within. I sure home we can use this power now, more than ever to heal ourselves of this virus’s negative impacts.

  1. What a divine thought!
    Reading the article brought a good deal of calmness in me. It’s all about acceptance of the new and unknown.
    If we understand that no organism actually wants to destroy its habitat, we it does Minal.

    If we understand that no organism actually wants to destroy its habitat, we will understand so much beyond the current fear. understand so much beyond the current fear.

  2. Yes... I too experienced fear since last 2-3 days for the virus and it actually gives more power to it..
    Let's give more power to healing and focus on love to heal ourselves.
    We must remain in the awareness to follow the rules as responsible citizens for staying at home. But lets focus more on healing and acceptance rather than on fear♥️
    This blog is awesome and so timely..thanx so much for sharing ��

  3. Truly said. The virus is just like other organisms meant to boost our way of living here. We may see it as a threat now but that's what all it starts as our understanding of our being. Thank you for enlightening us :)

  4. This is very insightful.What you have written is in fact, a very plausible idea. Countries all over the world are trying to make a vaccine for Corona.And vaccines do just that-they inject a mild form of a disease into a person so that they protect the body against that disease. And that's why we get fevers etc quite often after getting vaccinations. So your article has given an explanation from a spiritual viewpoint-which means that science and spirituality are now on the same page😊

    Such a thoughtful writeup !! I completely resonate with these lines .... " However we fear it because we see it as the one who has attacked our comfort zone"
