What is COVID-19 Virus Teaching us, from Bill Gates Spoof Story?

As many of you know, Bill Gates founder of Microsoft and Billionaire and philanthropist is also very spiritual.

I’m gonna outline what Bill recently said about ‘What COVID-19 Virus Teaching us?’ and add my thoughts to it, the average citizen.

Bill: It is reminding us that we are all equal, regardless of our culture, religion, occupation, financial situation or how famous we are. This disease treats us all equally, perhaps we should too. If you don’t believe me, just ask Tom Hanks.

Thoughts: Why the majority of us don’t treat each other equally is not because we were born to judge. It’s because we were conditioned to be that way, based on the environment you were subjected to.

Bill: It is reminding us that we are all connected and something that affects one person has an effect on another. It is reminding us that the false borders that we have put up have little value as this virus does not need a passport. It is reminding us, by oppressing us for a short time, of those in this world whose whole life is spent in oppression.

Thoughts: We are all connected, more than we know. Our hopes, dreams and desires are so much alike. The colour of your skin, or where you come from, does not define a person lower or better than the next person. Being aware that we have a soul, a spirit that is made up of energy that is renting the body we are in for a limited time until we reach death. Death is just a word, leaving a body to transform into the next journey of your life, we can’t be afraid of death. So many people have lived an entitled life without any oppression. It’s great to reflect and experience how many have lived the life of oppression, by being forced to live in self-isolation for awhile.

Bill: It is reminding us of how precious our health is and how we have moved to neglect it through eating nutrient-poor manufactured food and drinking water that is contaminated with chemicals upon chemicals. If we don’t look after our health, we will, of course, get sick.

Thoughts: Being connected to everything is true. Having that balance in that connection to everything is also needed. Chemicals are also part of our Universe. But manufactured food and chemicals lose that natural flow of growing food in your backyard the natural way. Every home can have a greenhouse garden in their backyard, with enough fruits and vegetables to last a household all year round. Being active in nature, eating healthy is all connected with the flow of energy and vibration of the universe.

Bill: It is reminding us of the shortness of life and of what is most important for us to do, which is to help each other, especially those who are old or sick. Our purpose is not to buy toilet rolls.

Thoughts: Fear, causes panic and anxiety. Not taking the time to balance your inner self will leave you exposed to an unhealthy mind, which affects all the other parts of your body. Practicing Meditation, or learning how to meditate is a start. Being mindful also keeps your energy clear and balanced.

Bill: It is reminding us of how materialistic our society has become and how, when in times of difficulty, we remember that it’s the essentials that we need (food, water, medicine) as opposed to the luxuries that we sometimes unnecessarily give value to.

Thoughts: Living in a material world can’t be the fault of every citizen when the media, movies and music industries have made it their business to create such a society in which citizens are living and calling it ‘Life’. Trillions of dollars were spent to condition people into living in a material world. Now all of a sudden we want them to have an epiphany, grow a few billion cells of wisdom and they should just know how to be wise? Those industries should be giving back to the people in a time of crisis. Being patient with them, helping them rebuild, not only themselves but to reinforce the message that we are all in this together. That to tell its customers, ‘That you had our back when we were thriving, now we got yours!’

Bill: It is reminding us of how important our family and home life is and how much we have neglected this. It is forcing us back into our houses so we can rebuild them into our homes and to strengthen our family unit.

Thoughts: Building family bonds is priceless. But you know what else is priceless before building family bonds, building yourself first. You can’t love someone else if you don’t love yourself. Perhaps that journey needs to be done alone, or perhaps together as a family. Families also have bad blood, bad habits, old wounds. It’s hard to tackle all those things in a family unit. But there is no better time, through thick or thin that with family. I’m sure everyone is gonna have their screaming moments. Those are all tests, pushing you to grow into your new better self. Let go of your pride or ego and don’t take things personally.

Bill: It is reminding us that our true work is not our job, that is what we do, not what we were created to do.

Our true work is to look after each other, to protect each other and to be of benefit to one another.

Thoughts: Yes, our true work is not our job. Our natural state of who we were meant to be was lost a long time ago. Perhaps now is a better time than any to redefine yourself.

Bill: It is reminding us to keep our egos in check. It is reminding us that no matter how great we think we are or how great others think we are, a virus can bring our world to a standstill.

Thoughts: True. A negative thought can break up relationships and a pattern of such thoughts can be considered as a viral negative way of thinking. But life goes on when the latter happens. All ways to identify yourself must come down at times like these. To take on any form of identities actually diminishes your ability to grow your inner self. To grow your energy to a higher vibration.

Bill: It is reminding us that the power of free will is in our hands. We can choose to cooperate and help each other, to share, to give, to help and to support each other or we can choose to be selfish, to hoard, to look after only our self. Indeed, it is difficulties that bring out our true colours.

Thoughts: True. Hard times do bring out the true colours of people. It comes down to again an element of fear within the mental conditioning of people that prevents them from being unselfish. Carrying around that kind of vibration also prevents a person to grow their inner self.

Bill: It is reminding us that we can be patient, or we can panic. We can either understand that this type of situation has happened many times before in history and will pass, or we can panic and see it as the end of the world and, consequently, cause ourselves more harm than good.

Thoughts: You can only point outwards so much, everyone has to start taking accountability of the kind of person they are or have become. To drop any identity that defines them in society, or defines their ego, needs to be put to bed. Identity is a label such as: Man, Woman, Religion that most people define themselves by and then build their own norms, such as, “A man does not do that.” Or, “I will not help a Muslim.” When one labels themselves and forms an identity, they have limited their growth to see beyond their ego.

Bill: It is reminding us that this can either be an end or a new beginning. This can be a time of reflection and understanding, where we learn from our mistakes, or it can be the start of a cycle which will continue until we finally learn the lesson we are meant to.

Thoughts: These times upon us now are a test to a new beginning of our authentic natural state of self.

Bill: It is reminding us that this Earth is sick. It is reminding us that we need to look at the rate of deforestation just as urgently as we look at the speed at which toilet rolls are disappearing off of shelves. We are sick because our home is sick.

Thoughts: The planet needs to heal. Humanity the way it has been conditioned has turned us into a virus destroying our planet. Not only do we need to self check ourselves, but we need a timeout from our planet.

Bill: It is reminding us that after every difficulty, there is always ease. Life is cyclical, and this is just a phase in this great cycle. We do not need to panic; this too shall pass.

Thoughts: Learning how to control fear is gonna be one of the greatest tests for humanity.

Bill: Whereas many see the Corona/ Covid-19 virus as a great disaster, I prefer to see it as a great corrector.

It is sent to remind us of the important lessons that we seem to have forgotten and it is up to us if we will learn them or not.

Thoughts: We are all born to die. We’ve lost our natural state of thinking, being and living. This reset not only within us but onto our planet is a blessing.

The Universe always knows what it is doing; whether it’s connecting people to form long-lasting relationships, or taking a life away to be transformed into something else. The cycle of life is not just us dying and being born, but it’s also to do with all life around us. From planets to ants, to trees, to the skies, to the moon and beyond and back to our dreams.
