“The world is too much with us, late in soon.” Those are the words of the poet William
Wordsworth. And how applicable they seem today for those of us living through the Pandemic. Just think. Everyone on the face of earth is going through the same tribulations. What could this possibly mean?
Meaning is important to humanity. There has to be a meaning to our lives, or what’s the point of living? As Nietzsche said, “He who has a why to live, can bear with almost any how.”
Recently, I consulted the Akashic Records and asked about the Pandemic. I asked specifically about how the present Pandemic would affect the United States and the world and if any good would come of it.
Interestingly, I was reminded of two bible stories; Jacob wrestling with the angel as described in Genesis 32:22-32; and the Tower of Babel as described in Genesis 11:1-19. The Jacob’s story represents the fate of the United states and the Tower of Babel represents the world’s fate.
Like Jacob of old who prevailed against the Angel of God, and whose hip was dislocated during the struggle which caused him to limp the remainder of his days, the Pandemic will cause the United States to also walk with a limp. It will take several years or more before it returns to its previous level of strength—if it returns at all.
In the Tower of Babel story, mankind having one universal language was building a tower that could reach to the heavens. God saw what mankind was doing and destroyed the tower scattering them across the face of the earth. He feared that if he let mankind to their own devices, then nothing would be impossible for them to achieve. They would usurp His powers and threaten the natural order.
The parallel to the present Pandemic is obvious. We are now in the Digital Age where on average human knowledge is doubled every thirteen months (industrytap.com)! Our technology and science (new universal Language) is outpacing our social systems, and we lack adequate ethics to manage complex decisions regarding artificial intelligence, genetic research, and global warming. We are on the verge of usurping God’s powers again. And like in the Tower of Babel story, man, is being taken down a notch.
Seems harsh. Yet, unfortunately, most of us will not change unless forced. We are the most hardheaded, tenacious species on the planet. It is the reason for all our great achievements, and may one day be the reason for our own destruction.
Is there any hope? According to the Akashic Records there is. Some of the positives I received— Because of the Pandemic people will begin to understand who and what really matters in their life, as they now have more time to reflect on their relationships and the meaning of life in general.
Many will become more spiritual which will help to bring more positive change in societies. Inequalities between the haves and have-nots will become more apparent forcing governments to do more for the poor and the disenfranchise. The world will become safer as nations are too preoccupied with the pandemic to project on to others and wage war. Nations will become more cooperative to prevent further outbreaks and world catastrophes. Because of food shortages, we will look to local suppliers, result being our food supplies will become healthier and fresher.
Of course, the Akashic Records do not give predictions of our future, only indications of what can be. We must be willing to listen. All I can say is observe the times. When you see dark clouds gathering, you know there is a storm approaching.
Or we may wind up as Nietzsche prophesied:
“In some remote corner of the universe, poured out and glittering in innumerable solar systems, there once was a star on which clever animals invented knowledge. That was the highest and most mendacious minute of “world history” —yet only a minute. After nature had drawn a few breaths the star grew cold, and the clever animals had to die.”
