Fear And Loathing.

In case you missed it recently;
We’re all gonna die!

Coronavirus is sweeping the lands, chopping down everything in its path.

Did ChiCom release a biological weapon, or are we are facing yet another flu mutation the likes of the Spanish Influenza a century ago?

Are elitist billionaire pedophile rings covering up their wrongdoings with the help of their media pals, or is this a major push by the Empire for blanket Communism?

Whatever it may be, we are all currently affected by it in some way or another.

A ‘Panic-demic’ is upon us.

Fights over toilet paper and baby formula, storefronts closing, people losing their minds on social media, and the words ‘crazy’, ‘fear’, and ‘panic’ becoming the language of the lame-stream media.

Billionaires posting photos wearing Gucci masks on their private yachts;
their vivid disconnect with their fanbase becoming apparent through their dissociative actions.

“Have fun, peasants!”

When times get tough, everyone’s true colors come out.

But, that doesn’t mean you have to join the crowd.

Be aware of the masses; sometimes the m is silent. 

Spend time with your family, go for a walk, exercise, meditate, read a book, do yoga, finish that project you’ve been putting off, check in with your friends and neighbors to make sure they’re doing okay.

Perform self-discovery work.

Set up a barter system where you can help people that you know; trade a haircut for an oil change, walk neighborhood dogs, help disabled or elderly people in your community with their yardwork, recycling collection, lawn care, etc.

Even with business closures and mass-hysteria projected by the media, my email inbox has been blowing up with business ventures, projects, and friends checking in: humanity is still alive and kicking. 

Images of Nature reclaiming what’s hers are circulating widely throughout the interweb, reminding us of the massive impact corporatism and greed were having on this delicate ecosystem that we call home.

I’ve witnessed people laughing and smiling, spending time with their families, connecting with friends, checking in on each other, and saying “stay safe.”

Supporting local business, learning how to grow/hunt your own food, conserving water and energy, caring for people in your tribe, maintaining your integrity.

All of a sudden that stuff seems very important.

I had a conversation with my grandfather in Scotland on the phone the other day, and he reminded me of his time as a kid, born after the Great Depression.

He was raised in the Gorbals, one of the roughest and most impoverished areas of the Port City of Glasgow. He and his 7 siblings shared 1 pair of shoes.

They would hide during bombing runs in World War II, and then go kick unexploded ordnance around to practice ‘footy’.

At the age of eight, he found his brother dead in a drawer, where they slept because they could not afford beds. His brother had died of crib-death (SIDS).

I cannot even begin to imagine what that would feel like.

I was lucky enough to have spent a day with him touring his old neighborhood, which has very much changed in the last century, and he showed me where he would hide with his family in the bomb shelters when the Luftwaffe would strike.

He nailed the point home to me that he had been through much worse than any ‘Coronavirus’ or bank collapse and that we must be strong and have faith.

If you’re still shitting your pants in a panic, then here are tips to stay healthy;

Wash Your Hands
Limit Alcohol/Tobacco
Less Sugars
More Fluids
Less Sitting
More Moving
Less Stress
More Rest/Sleep
Eat Healthy
Meditate

There you have it.

All the secrets to a healthy immune system.

In reality, I would be more concerned about suicide numbers during dark times than dying from a flu virus.

Suicide rates are already astronomical in a veneer-society where everything is at your service and immediate disposal.

When our comforts and conveniences are taken from us, we find out who we truly are on the inside. No more masking it in the matrix with hyped-up social events, alcohol, busy schedules, our favorite TV shows, or mindless face-stuffing.

In his speech delivered in 1963 at the convention of the Southwestern Social Science Association, Louisiana State University business professor Leon C. Megginson spoke this very real truth;

“According to Darwin’s Origin of Species, it is not the most intellectual of the species that survives; it is not the strongest that survives; but the species that survives is the one that is able best to adapt and adjust to the changing environment in which it finds itself.”

This is not a time to be scared or frightened.

It’s your time to adapt.  

Be well guys.

Ps. We’re all gonna die someday, it’s best to now live while you’re alive.
