Grateful Sunday: how can this covid-19 prolonged isolation be useful?

what can time spent fearing something be better used for

It’s Sunday. April 5, 2020.

In the West, the Pacific Northwest to be exact, people are being forced to stay home until about May 4, or 5, or TBD. This is a time of extreme isolation. Truthfully, for me, it’s been too long already…it’s getting to the point where getting forced to stay home totally sucks; however, maybe, if the constant noise pollution from the construction across my street diminished, I’d feel rather different.

And, also, there’s the part where some of me must have manifested it somehow…in someway. Or, it’s happening for a reason, some greater good. I hope that one of those is the reason, and at the same time, I know that bits of everything is. There is so much to the truth; like, there is so much to this Covid-19 worldwide pandemic. 

Simply, Coronavirus is giving us a forced reset

There are things one cannot do while being home all day, yet there’s so much one can get done. There is so much that we all need to get done (as a species); the world sped up, way too fast, then about twenty years later, not many of us took the time to look around—to notice and observe what changed. 

Covid-19 is forcing us to do it. 

Has the internet and social media enhanced our lives? Be truthful. For me, it’s the former—the latter was, at times, quite painful, but the internet (overall) has been a ball. A gift that keeps on giving. Like, isn’t so wonderful how connected we all are despite being worlds away. Because of the magic of the Internet we are not alone when everyone is so alone. All of us are caught in uncertainty. None of us know what the outcomes holds. None of us know where this is all going. Yet, all of us have a part in the making of it. 

Where we go after Coronavirus is up to all of us. 

Wherever we focus on the road that we are taking is where we end up. Simple mechanics and explanation of the framework of the mind. You are the captain of your ship, you tell the mind where to go. Let the News co-captain, and have the News co-direct where you are going. Or, take the reigns to your own vessel, yourself. This is where we want to go: to a better future for all. Yes, that includes plants, and animals, and elements.

Planet Earth, we will take care of you, again, and all of your inhabitants. We will be vigilant in our cooperation with you Planet Earth, and each-other, thus no other pandemic will ever fall upon us. 

Doesn’t that sound f@#%ing wonderful. And, isn’t ever so possible? We have the technology for everyone, let’s not kid ourselves: capitalism is dead. The way the wheels were turning wasn’t working. A new form is evolving. 

Train your mind to see it. Refocus your mind to see the good in change. Let the humankind tribe THRIVE.

Let the coronavirus pandemic fulfill Souls.

Humankind needed this time to relax, to process how quickly everything got over the last twenty years—do you remember how slow the nineties were? Oh, that painful dial-up rhythm (it’s so loud in the back of my mind), it’s so prevalent because the nineties was less than a generation ago. It wasn’t that long ago when the world sped up. Minds collided, everything got smaller, yet most People didn’t take the time to see it. Now is the time for self-exploration. 

Where do you want to go? That’s where our world will go. What is it that you are currently focusing on, and feeling with certainty? That’s where you are steering your ship. Overall, remember that nothing is certain but the PRESENT.

So, what is real for you right now? Focus on that, and focus on being f@#%ing grateful. 

Finally, let’s get creative about where we are going after the coronavirus pandemic—let’s get someplace great.

TGIF; bye corona

The more I love myself the more love I can embrace from other people

It’s Friday.

Imagine life after Coronavirus, what will that be like? Relax your heart, relax your breathing, relax your thinking, and focus on one thing. That blissful feeling of no thoughts; just being.

observe: the world, it moves so slow. 

It’s Friday, but there is no rush. No one is trying to get from point A to point B, we are all just learning to be comfortable with where we’re at. How to enjoy that?

How do we just enjoy our PRESENT? We listen. We hear with our innermost voice the rhythm of our own heartbeat. Do you heart that? It talks. It’s speaks. It has its own language. It’s own rhythm. We are always banging always.

covid—19 says, let’s harmonize

What kind of music are you playing? Could the scared-song be relabeled excitement? Could the scared-song be remade into a nourishing tune?

Humans have a great capacity to learn, to get better, and to evolve. It’s not just us saying it,  Jean-Luc Picard said it last night while we were binging on some Star Trek. Yes, it happens, sometimes we need escapism. But it’s important to stay in-tune with reality; the true reality: CoronaVirus is a thing we all manifested. 

Every human wanted things to change; especially, here, in the west. We were all just tired of the same old tired news.

Something about some celebrity, oh, and more and more were committing suicide—it was becoming a trend. Let’s not forget school shootings, with the occasional mall and movie theater angry teenage out burst. There was also a couple of wars, maybe a handful; something about oil and religion. Where are you now, God; they all shout out.

Little did they know, it was all God-sent…

Creation is teaching its children: no more messing with It. Let’s get better at serving Nature, at serving each other. Fill the hole in your heart with what it truly wants: wholehearted altruism.

But don’t take our word for it; hear your heart tell you itself. Get really, really quiet. Focus on your breath, then focus on your heart beating, and listen to what it has to say; attentively. Just listen. Observe. Witness. And learn for yourself, from yourself.

Thank you for reading. Namasté.

It’s time to get creative with the whole Covid-19 thing

Joy to the world joy to all the boys and girls joy to the people in the deep blue Sea Joy to you and me

The entire world is focused on one thing. What happens when we all focus on one thing?

What happens when we give all of our Energy and Attention to just one focus?

It’s easy to focus on CoronaVirus, it’s easy to get swept down the down-whirl spiral.  But it is just as easy to come up. You get really, really, really quiet, and you just listen to your heart; you talk to it. You may tell it to calm down. Remind it that it’s okay. Or something like that. Then, you practice this again and again because the CoronaVirus scare is everywhere.

Has Covid-19 affected you personally? That’s a whole other level. But you still don’t need anyone’s somber vibes and thinking.

We ALL need to think creatively about this Pandemic.

That’s how we got here to begin with; someone thought that they could possibly get sick from an animal, and they did; the disease miraculously manifested and jumped from a furry little creature to a human being. Then we all collectively accepted this disease and turned it into a worldwide pandemic because everyone on the planet needed things to change. So things are changing.

Let’s focus on change for the better.

It’s so easy to get distracted with the news, I myself have gone on several down-whirl spirals since the whole thing started. I practice meditation, I go on walks, I read good things, and feed myself healthy images. I lead others on guided meditations and mindfulness practice, I write about looking at the brighter side, I wear inspirational clothing, and have inspirational decals and pillows, still, I went on a couple of sad-rants on Twitter. Still, I got stuck on a thought, and for a while there, I couldn’t even hear my own heart beating. It’s the original language of the Soul, we NEED to hear it!

Thanks to the Absher co. construction disturbance in my neighborhood that I was totally bitching about on Twitter—because it truly was causing me unbearable headaches—I mindfully decided to get creative with what I was feeling. I went on a long drive yesterday; thankfully, my drive included the view of hundreds of moss-filled trees stretching up towards the sun. I talked to them, I pleaded for their help; someone listened. By the end of my drive, I had a plan. I remembered the earplugs that I’ve been carrying around for the last decade. Meant for protecting my ears in the water, I always forget to wear them when I go swimming. But I’ve kept them, so this morning, I wore them. Gasp! They worked. Not only did they block-out the nonstop banging and drilling sounds being carried in through the walls from across the street, the earplugs reintroduced me to the sound of my own heartbeat. That little dude was scared. It had been watching too many news, and it was trying to warm me otherwise. It was trying to get my attention away from CoronaVirus.

But it’s hard not to watch the Covid-19 headlines. It’s hard not to feel sad for people that are losing their family members, jobs, and livelihoods. I want for things to get better after CoronaVirus, I want for things to get better NOW; while, at the same time, I understand that sometimes it takes drastic measures to get people to change, to truly evolve.

What is the next place for the human race?

Is it six-feet underground, or can we learn to work better together for the benefit of all? Let’s stop with the deep-pocket game, that game is tired. Wohoo, you have all the money to do what? Get more stuff? Stuff is not the way to fulfill the Soul. The Ego has transitory needs; most of the time, the Ego doesn’t even know what it truly wants: it just wants. The Soul is different. It’s urging us to get more connected. The change is here.

It’s time to move away from wanting. It’s time to tap into the feelings of things. Feel how much better it is to help each-other out. Feel how much better it is to give-forward and back. Feel the fulfillment of the Soul. What does that feel like? Feel your heartbeat, let it talk to you.

Feel how much better things can be, and we will get there. Get stuck on a good thought; otherwise, if you get stuck on a down-whirl spiral, things suck, and you don’t feel good. So listen to all the feelings, they are but Energy in motion. So actively guide your Emotions to feel better, get creative with your thinking, and the feelings you are fueling. 

Go for a walk, go for a drive, get off Twitter. For the past two days, while I was mad Twitting, people either offered their support, or said that I should deal with it; no one got creative to help me out with the most simple answer: earplugs.

Pained from the constant rumbling, I couldn’t see past my own headache. I couldn’t get creative. I just needed a simple solution, I needed a kind voice of reason; thankfully, my drive and the trees offered that. Thankfully, I get to write about it now, and perhaps, help someone else who may be going through a similar experience.

Everyone is hurting nowadays, in one form or another, everyone is facing uncertainty. What is in the other side of CoronaVirus? Let’s start to feel all of the goodness that this Covid-19 pandemic can bring.

this is what covid-19 is helping us learn

overcome your self

It’s okay to have bad days. It’s okay to fall into a mood. It’s totally okay to feel things and be Human; what is not okay is to let those moods and bad days become one’s personality and life.

Social distancing and prolonged isolation because of Covid-19 is not easy on anyone, even introverts.

People are social creatures by nature. Even introverts need to be around people sometimes. Humans need each-other. It warms my heart to see so many people being extra kind lately because of CoronaVirus. In Seattle, a city known for its many introverts and subsequent #SeattleFreeze, people are now actually looking up, making eye-contact, waving, and starting conversations. It’s beautiful, very heartwarming, and helpful during these uncertain times. What’s more, people are actually taking it upon themselves to get out to clean the streets and parks.

Driving around, I see many Humans of all ages with garbage bags and trash pickers cleaning up the Emerald City. And the kindness doesn’t stop there, signs are being posted in various apartment buildings offering residents assistance. If they are not able to fend for themselves during these uncertain times, people are offering to help.

CoronaVirus may be stressful, but it’s bringing out the best in others.

More and more people are looking to the bright-side. More and more people are reaching out to others; friends, family, strangers. More and more Humans are stepping up to help. This was much needed in our world.

When one Human hurts, everyone feels it, whether or not they are conscious of it, because we are all connected. That is why the extremely rich are so unfulfilled. How many world-wide pandemics will it take for them to learn: money is not everything. Too much money leaves a gaping hole. The Soul is only fulfilled in service of others. Try it, and see how much better you sleep at night. It’s time for Humans to learn.

Let CoronaVirus teach you.

Learn to be kind(er) to others. Learn to be of service to peoplekind. When we take, take, take without giving, we get out of balance, and our Soul gets disturbed. What does a Harmonious Soul feel like? Give, and find out. Give, and find rest. Give, and feel Harmony within. It’s your true nature, that’s why your Soul yearns to do it. But your mind and pockets may say otherwise. But the Culture we were living in didn’t fully allow it. But the world we are creating is in your hands. It is in the hands of each of us that are currently Present in this existence.

May Covid-19 be the last lesson Humans need.

May you, reading this, find restful slumber tonight. May you, reading this, find Soul fulfillment in your Life. May you, reading this, maintain Inner Peace and Harmony. And may you Thrive, regardless of uncertainty, regardless of Covid-19.

Thank you for reading. Namasté.

I am so thankful—long sleeve American Apparel Navy shirt

Gracias. Merci beaucoup!

Let CoronaVirus pandemic refuel your Soul

mental health is a commitment to reality

Life. Is. Incredible. Here we are, spinning in deep space. Out of BILLIONS of galaxies  and planets, here, we exist. Look at all that Humans have created thus far; cars, planes, the Internet. We’ve managed to prolong Life, no longer are people dying at 40, 60, or even 80. We’ve added decades to the Human Life capacity. We’ve trailed forward not giving a f@%* about what we trample along the way. We think that we are invincible. We think that life is forever. But we are mere mortals; mortals whom are meant to die. And that is a good thing.

Death, allows us to perceive Life with an attitude of Gratitude. Every little breath one takes is precious. Every little step forward is counted. Every little action and interaction counts. If we don’t forget about Death, we don’t forget about Life.

Covid-19 is giving us a chance to remember.

Death is part of Living. Death is but a natural part of Nature, just look at all of the bare trees that we have up here in the Northern Hemisphere. Their leaves have died. Why?

Because they are ready to embrace the new Spring growth. Winter was coming, it came, and it’s given us a huge opportunity to sit quietly and reflect. Reflection is a much needed process for growth. Quiet time to recuperate and revitalized is essential for Human evolution. 

Use this CoronaVirus isolation period!

Find out what you truly want for this Life. Isn’t miraculous that you exist in this time period. We have the whole-wide-world at our fingertips! We have the best scientist working to fix this. We have the best minds shining their light on others. We have the best intentions for each-other. We are ALL the best. Yes, YOU, reading this. You’re a freaking WINNER. Yes, YOU! You already won the lottery, you beat an innumerable amount of sperm just to be born in this Life. While being Alive, you’ve already beat many obstacles along the way, you got up on two legs, you beat gravity and started walking. Or, if you’re stuck to a chair, heck, you can sit upright, and that chair makes it possible for you to move from point A to point B.

Let Covid-19 help you embrace the bright side.


There are an innumerable amount of opportunities available to humankind  right now. Yes, it takes effort to look, but you gotta look. Look closely at all that you’ve been given. Be grateful for all that is miraculous, and that includes your own existence; currently, in this time, the best time to be Alive yet!

Are you truly living beyond what you are perceiving from the media about this whole Covid-19 thing?

It’s okay to rest, it’s okay to relax, it’s okay to experience Joy and Happiness amidst Death; because Death is just a part of life. So, may you, reading this, and all of your loved ones, be Happy, Healthy, and Fulfilled throughout this whole CoronaVirus pandemic thing.

May your Soul flourish.

Thank you for reading. Namasté.

Life after CoronaVirus

Your good fortune is my good fortune

The week is over, everything was different, yet you’ve remained the same.

Filled with ease, Inner Peace, and Harmony. The new CoronaVirus news did not disturb you, for you are well aware, things happen for a reason.

Name one person that was satisfied with the status quo, with the way things have been.

Name one culture that wasn’t hurting in some way.

Name one act that can make us strong

destruction.

Destruction of the old paradigm is bringing out the best in others. Destruction of the old paradigm is uniting all humanity. Destruction of the old paradigm is releasing the Human Ego.

The story that humanity had been caught up in wasn’t serving all the good that we are capable of displaying, producing, manifesting as a species.

Name one person that wasn’t feeling the void before this Covid-19 thing. The need for something more. Could it be a real connection to all? Could it be purposeful living? Could it be respect for Mother Nature and Father God; or if you don’t believe in that, respect for Creation…

Destruction deserves respect too. Destruction brings forth new possibilities. Destruction produces new ways of thinking, acting, feeling.

What do you feel about your life right now?

What is in the process of Destruction?

What is in the process of Creation?

What is trying to Live and be born?

Are you willing to go back to the old ways before CoronaVirus, or are you ready to embrace the new way of living? What’s does this period of isolation mean for you?

Is it the time to party up, get high, and drink, drink, drink. Or do you see that there is an alternative trying to emerge?

The old ways before CoronaVirus are shifting. You, reading this, can feel it in your bones. Now feel it with your heart. What does that feel like? Is it expansive? Is it fulfilling? Is it real Life?

What does real Life feel like? Yes, it is fulfilling. Yes, it is expansive. Yes, it is Abundance, Joy, and Courage.

Find the courage to stay strong throughout this Covid-19 thing. You do not get permission to run and hide—because there’s no going back from all of this. Thanks to CoronaVirus the world is shifting, in mega proportions, unlike anything we’ve ever seen before.

What are you doing to get ready for the new world after Covid-19?

What are you doing to Thrive beyond this point?

Ourstory is in the making. It’s not his-story anymore, but a new way of life where we encompass the whole. The feminine and the masculine unite as one. The People and the Nature collaborate more and more. Destruction is bringing forth all of this.

See Covid-19 for what it really is: Ourstory in the making. Ourstory is shifting.

Believe CoronaVirus is for the better, and it will be for the better. Believe Covid-19 is for the worse, and it will be for the worse. Whether or not it’s easy to refocus your attention, it’s your focus and attention that mark the destination to Hell on Earth, or Heaven on Earth. The choice truly is yours.

Throughout this whole Covid-19 thing, what are you choosing to feed?

What do you choose to nourish?

The opportunity to determine your new future is now, it is in your hands, what are you doing about it? What are you choosing to focus on? Mind you attention, mark your destination. That’s how you’ll get there.

Thank you for reading. Namasté.
