No efforts are being spared to find a cure for the coronavirus. Research is being done in so many laboratories in different parts of the world. In the meantime, all kinds of suggestions are being made….HCQ, steam inhalation, Vitamin C, Paracetamol, Doliprane…. The world has gone through many waves of flu outbreaks. Swine flu, bird flu, Influenza A, B, C, D… And we also hear how the viruses mutate, and with each mutation makes it more difficult to control. Researchers will surely find a vaccine for the coronavirus. But we know that if mankind does not obey the natural law of God, viruses and other diseases will continue to show up.
“Aissaa giaan vichaaram”
Satguru Kabir Saheb calls us to reflect on the truth, on that which will save us from sufferings. Academia is here to teach us to earn money, spend money, build houses, build cities… And to a great extent compete with each other, fight with each other. Academia teaches us the skills for survival; the Guru teaches us how to live, see the unseen, and reach that destination from where we do not have to learn any more.
“Ek jevri sab laptaane”
We are all connected through the same vine, all clinging to that same creeper. How do we get out of it, how do we get disentangled? Spiritual knowledge from the Guru leads us to detach ourselves from that creeper. Those who are happy with the deceptive happiness of that fantasia do not let go of the creeper. Thus falling back in the traps of Kaal.
“Mandir baithe chahoundis bhige, baahar rahe te sukhe”
He who sits with himself (meditates) is soaked with divine knowledge; he who wanders outside remains dry, devoid of that knowledge which will unlock the door to liberation. The recurrences of H1N1 then H1N2 then H5N1 and many different variations of bird and swine flu are actually the result of those who have continued to defile nature. Once cured, they still violate the chastity of our existence. The one cure for all is to revert back to our natural reality, which is to live as a spiritual being.
“Bin nainan ke sab jag dekhe, lochan anchte andhaa”
The spiritual eyes allow us to see the unseen, to see everything. Those who pride themselves in being able to see everything thinking they have the sharpest vision are in fact ‘blind’ sighted. They take the wrong decisions pulled by their sensory cravings. What is the use of having such sharp vision and misusing it for the collapse of humanity? More than 1.6 million people have been attained by the coronavirus, and almost 100,000 people have died of it over the last 3 months. And the numbers keep increasing. Should we not go for that one cure which will immunize us from all viruses? Let us be driven by our spiritual eye.
“Kahein Kabir kacchu samajh pari hai, yeh jag dekhe andhaa”
Do not follow blindly. The world has gone blind. After going through such shocking times, should the world not refrain from violating divine laws? Let us allow the Divine presence to permeate the whole world. It is time for those who have got the message to inspire others. The whole world is at risk. The whole world needs the cure.
