An Esoteric View on the Corona Virus

AN ESOTERIC VIEW ON THE CORONA VIRUS

In the time frame of the execution of this contemplation there is much awareness, richly spread by the media, about the so called 'corona virus', scientifically indicated as 'SARS-CoV-2', which leads to the disease 'COVID-19'. The virus and disease are thought to originate from Wuhan in China and currently they are spreading fast around the globe. Here we shall esoterically contextualize the appearance of this virus.

Firstly it is obvious that the corona virus is a virus. Viruses fall, together with for instance bacteria, under the category of germs.1 As such a germ can be understood as “the 'seed' of a disease” but can more generally be considered as “[t]hat from which anything springs or may spring; an elementary principle”.2, 3 Esoterically a germ is thought of as a point of energy having the potentiality to affect surrounding energies, which affection may consequently work out on the physical plane.4 Viral diseases should thus be considered as the physical plane results of certain points of energy which inimically affect the energies underlying physical bodies.5 Viruses attacking bodies are the physical plane results of points of energy inimically affecting coherent energies. Differences in the nature of these points of energy and the nature of their affection on energetic level will lead to different symptoms on the physical level and thus different names shall be ascribed to such diseases. The virus name 'SARS-CoV-2' indicates for instance that it causes a severe acute respiratory syndrome [SARS], but these specific symptoms are only indicative of the nature of the energy point that underlies the corona virus.

It may be asked where these points of energy come from. And the answer given shall be that they are, mostly unconsciously, created by humanity as a whole itself. All psychic incentives, all emotions and all thoughts, create points in emotional and mental, in psychic, space. And these points will correspond in nature to the nature of the psychic incentive. Wholesome psychic incentives create wholesome psychic points and unwholesome psychic incentives create unwholesome psychic points. How potent and vital these points become shall depend upon the aggregate of attention that humanity gives to these points. The collective fear of the people in a war area may for instance create unwholesome points in psychic space and gather with prolonged and aggregated attention much vitality around these points. These vitalized energy points then will work on the energy bodies of humans and then it shall only be a matter of time before these energy clashes precipitate on the physical level as viruses attacking physical bodies.6

So humanity as a whole is creating its own viral diseases through unwholesome psychic incentives. If humanity thus wants to prevent outbreaks of such viral diseases it should not only sanitate its physical life, but also its emotional and its mental life. Massive psychic sanitation is crucial for the prevention of viral diseases. It shall be clear however that people in war areas cannot be expected to not fear bombs and bullets (unless they are of an exceptional spiritual status). And thus the abstinence of war, as also the abolishment of poverty by the equal sharing of resources, must become part of the human physical sanitation. This is a message for even the protectionistic humans on our globe. For hiding behind a powerful military and economic protection will not safeguard them from getting virally infected. Viral infections must be prevented by creating first of all safe environments for all human beings so they don't have to fear circumstances.7

To the aforementioned all individuals are called. We are all called to create safe environments for everyone. Thus a conductive habitat for hygienic psyches is created. With an overall hygienic psyche humanity shall not so likely suffer anymore from viral diseases. Psychic hygiene is with regards to the prevention of viral diseases however also important when looked upon from the individual level. It was mentioned that basically humans get infected by viral diseases when unwholesome energy points affect the energy system of a human being. On an individual level it is possible to wear off unwholesome energies. This is done by keeping one's own energy system vital and positive. Thus one's own energy system will become itself influencive instead of influenceable, which is the nature of a non-vital and negative energy system.8 This vitality must be present in the entirety of the individual energy system, for where there are breaches the unwholesome energy points, which on the physical level are known as 'germs', shall still be able to do their havoc. Now it is through a hygienic and awakened psyche that a full vital energy system can be maintained, because energy follows thought.9 Healthy food, sun and relaxation also play their part.10

The above suggestion does not mean that all healthy staying individuals are maintaining a perfect psychic hygiene and that all viral infected individuals are maintaining a bad psychic hygiene. Many factors will determine whether someone will get infected, such as hereditary factors and plain accidence. However individually a hygienic and awakened psyche is the best protection.

As an addition to the above it shall conclusively be clear that in the present condition of the manifest coronavirus the physical precautions and treatments do good service as well. However to prevent future outbreaks of viral diseases global psychic hygiene must be promoted in all ways. So we shall thus all stay healthy.

  5. Ibidem. “In relation to disease, a germ still remains a point of energy, but it might be regarded as energy which is not functioning correctly in relation to the particular form which has become susceptible to its activity or aware of its presence.”

But they are in this case a result of the Law of Karma. The crisis that manifested itself as the SARS infection in China and elsewhere, for example, the epidemics of flu throughout Europe, are the direct results of the fear generated from the crisis conditions set up by the US attacks on Afghanistan and Iraq. It is not a question of God punishing the aggressor. It is a simple law of the interconnectedness of all atoms in the universe. What happens here sets up something that will inevitably happen elsewhere by the law of action and reaction.”
  7. 'Esoteric Healing', Part One, Ch. I, 1, C. "Worry and Irritation are dangerous because:
    1. They lower the vitality of the man to such a point that he becomes susceptible to disease. The scourge of influenza has its roots in fear and worry, and once the world settles down to freedom from the present "fearful" condition, we shall see the disease die out."
  8. Ibidem, Part One, Ch. IV. “When the vitality is great and the life force has free and unimpeded circulation, then there will not be these predispositions, the germ cannot find a lodging, and there will not be the risk of infection.”
