10 classes that the world is studying now | Guided Meditation On-line

Meditation can help the world

As the coronavirus ravages the world with severe health and economic repercussions, deaths, unemployment and hardship are dire.

However, if we take a step back and look inward, the world will learn some lessons even if we are struggling to manage and overcome the crisis. And heeding these warning signs can be good for us when the crisis is over. We'll likely move to a new world where things are changing.

1. Military strength and weapons can be useless.

All countries have built up their armed forces and weapons. The most powerful of all – America – has been humiliated by an invisible enemy, none of which is useful to protect the lives of thousands.

2. Cooperation, unity and benevolence only between countries will save the world.

The world wars taught us that no one wins when there is a war. The pandemic wars have taught us that they can only be won if everyone unites. Russia and China deliver to America. Russia is also helping Italy – these are rare acts of unity that otherwise don't happen.

3. The rich get richer and the poor get poorer.

The stock markets are collapsing, quickly reducing the wealth of the richest. For too long, the rich have gotten richer at the expense of the poor, and the stock markets, which typically represent Wall Street corporations, billionaires, and big corporations, have been the primary vehicle for doing so. The current situation is shaving off the wealth of the richest with astronomical falls never seen before. Those who aren't rich but whose 401Ks and retirement accounts are falling in the stock market should have learned their lessons from the 2008 recession.

The world could return to a more equitable division of wealth, and real assets like land and gold could be the ultimate permanent wealth store. The value of the people who live on Main Street and provide services to others will also increase. The pay for nurses is already rising. Those who sit at home and make money trading stocks may be valued a lot less or make no money at all.

4. We need to help each other more.

The best in people is brought about through random kind actions, and people step in to help one another. We are taught that such acts are more likely to greatly aid peace and unity in the world. Robust individualism and the feeling of independence give way to the fear that everyone needs help.

5. Mother Nature shows us how severe and uncontrollable crises can be.

An aggressive climate protection action is possible and also necessary – only our will is missing, and our complacency and our ego let us plunder the environment. Scientists have reported that since orders and home lockouts began, we've been seeing bluer skies and a huge reduction in pollution around the world. This certainly does not have to be at the expense of the poor who will lose their jobs and livelihoods due to the lockdown, but the lesson is that we need to aggressively reduce non-essential travel for environmental reasons.

6. We need to pay more attention to our families.

We have walked too fast and done too many things without paying attention to time with our families and relationships. The home stay guidelines and lockdowns allow families to rediscover the value of their relationships and the need for love at home.

We were too busy to get in touch with our loved ones. Now the fear of losing our loved ones leads us to reconnect with them.

7. When medical and economic solutions fail, spirituality may be the only remaining solution.

There seem to be no immediate solutions to the virus and the world is trying hard to find something to hold on to. Many are afraid and desperate. These are the best times to find spirituality and spiritual solutions to our problems. Mere hope and prayers will not be enough. Discovering our deep inner selves to find solutions to our problems could be very instructive. Sahaja offers many such fascinating opportunities.

8. We can work smarter and more efficiently.

We've been less efficient by spending time physically commuting to places that can be online or remote. From visits to the doctor to grocery shopping to attorney and tax appointments, the world is realizing that many things can be done online and that we don't have to spend and waste energy remotely.

9. We have exaggerated many things in life.

The industries hardest hit by the lockdown teach us a few lessons:

Gambling – Yes, everyone would understand that the world needs less of it.

Airlines – They were the main reason human CO2 emissions increased. The drastic reduction in travel should make us think and only use air travel in the future when it is absolutely necessary.

Hotels – Perhaps it is better for us to live less in hotels and more at home and at home?

Live sports – Maybe we have been too playful and need to balance our life with some serious pursuits like spirituality and higher goals?

Cruises – Too much vacation and too exotic instead of focusing on staying ashore with loved ones?

Film production and cinemas – Perhaps the abundance of entertainment options was too great. Perhaps it is time to cut down the number of films and make more revealing, better quality films. Perhaps too much consumption of such entertainment has negatively affected our psyche and moral values? Should the overuse of vampire, science fiction, and psychopath murder stories be stopped?

Automakers and auto demand – Do we need a car dealer on every main street and do we need so many different cars?

oil and gas – Should we switch to renewable energy sources more aggressively?

Retail malls – Too much materialism in humans? Should we only buy the things we need instead of everything we want and with the money we don't have?

Conventions – Should we put less strain on our brain and instead concentrate on collective meditation – an act of access to higher consciousness? Perhaps collective silence is more useful than collective talking and debating?

Restaurants – Are you bringing back the balance of homemade meals that are healthier and have love in them?

Amusement parks – Too much entertainment, especially for kids?

10. Respect our frontline workers who are soldiers in this war and pay them higher.

Healthcare workers, food chain workers, suppliers and delivery people are fighting for us. They need to be much more valued and on par with the armed forces, if not more.

Everyone wants the world to be the way it was before the virus hit us. However, something tells us that this is not going to happen. The lessons to be learned are meaningful and those who learn them and adjust their lives and actions will be happy again.

What happens can be nature's way to develop and to reach a higher and better state of existence for humans. Unfortunately, we have to learn these lessons the hard way. On the other hand, nature may have been trying to tell us these things for a long time and we decided not to listen. Because we are human.

And we'll likely get back on the same path before the crisis is over. Until the next big wake-up call hits the world.
