The coronavirus is exhausting – I do not have it but the media coverage of the virus is exhausting. I understand that we must be informed of the developments – but the constant onslaught of depressing news is just that – depressing. Let’s keep informed, but let’s only share facts that have been checked. I am guilty of this – I was sharing stuff early on that I had not fact checked and am now going to only share fact-checked stories. It’s definitely good to listen to updates but let’s not spend 10 hours a day watching the news!
I am not a follower of psychics as they really aren’t ones to be factual, I did however come across the prediction that Sylvia Browne made:
“In around 2020 a severe pneumonia-like illness will spread throughout the globe, attacking the lungs and the bronchial tubes and resisting all known treatments. Almost more baffling than the illness itself will be the fact that it will suddenly vanish as quickly as it arrived, attack again ten years later, and then disappear completely.” A quote from the book of Sylvia Browne in 2008
While it would be nice to believe that this will go away as quickly as it came, I don’t believe that part. However, despite this prediction happening at the same time of SARS, this is eerie. I am somewhat hopeful that this will, in fact, happen but that is just wishful thinking.
As I walking this morning in the beautiful spring weather, I was thinking about the most recent news, being that the air is becoming clearer in China, the canals of Venice are clear enough to see in, and other phenomena that are going on. Perhaps – and please remember this only me thinking aloud – but perhaps some greater being has looked down on us all, looking at the greediness and the wastefulness that has been happening for years and years by all of us, and they decided to make us clean up our act. Now this is quite the drastic way of doing this – but it gave me some pause to think – maybe we should look at this virus as a way to become more healthy, less greedy, less wasteful, take better care of ourselves and those around us, and become better, kinder people.
So let’s hope that Sylvia Browne was right and that this will go away as quickly as it came, let’s clean up our environment, help our neighbours, and become a better world. We may have to wait a while to do this, but I know we all have it in us and that we can do it. I will be doing my part – will you?
