The Corona threat? [blog]

Nietzsche ‘What does not kill you, makes you stronger.

Is there a “Paul view” of the Corona virus? Last walk I was asked that.

Let me say the following: “No country is prepared for the impact this virus has on humanity.”

It is the motto to contain and limit the spread of the virus. Governments are committed to preventing too many people becoming infected with this virus. Right. We cannot nurse thousands of people in hospitals in complete isolation.

Many hundreds of people die every year from all kinds of infections and viruses. But the Corona virus is really something for which we have no solution yet. People with poor health or who belong to the risk groups are more likely to die.

We must all act wisely and listen to the advice we hear from central governments. Looking away and ignoring are no wise decisions.

The corona virus is similar to the broken branch of the tree in the photo. The virus has an impact on humanity and the economy. However, the tree will continue to grow and the broken branch will disappear. It was half the tree. Still, the life of the tree continues. It will take a while for the tree to recover and continue to grow.

Nietzsche ‘What does not kill you, makes you stronger.

What Nietzsche means by this is that people cannot avoid negative life events. There are negative life events and you have to learn to deal with or to live with. That seems like an impossible task. A study by Mark Seery from the University of Buffalo and colleagues from the University of California at Irvine revealed that negative life experiences make our adaptability and robustness stronger, and therefore good for our mental health. Research shows that people personally actually grow through unfortunate circumstances and develop stronger well-being than people who do not have negative life experiences.

I myself try to approach the corona situation as positively as possible from a heartfulness thought. I take good care of myself and reason wisely when I take the advice of the authorities to heart.

Hopefully we will soon have warmer and drier weather conditions that will eliminate the corona virus. Until then I wish everyone wise choices and a healthy life.
