Quarantine diaries-Day 2

Day 2
During the dinner I had with my son day 1, we were talking about the epidemy we are passing through now and how this situation will affect us all. How difficult is it to know the truth.
As Montesquieu said, “Error runs down an inclined plane, while truth has to laboriously climb its way uphill.” It made me think about how extreme situations are making children grow faster and become more focused on their future. Their instincts sharpen, their logic renewed with fresh common sense thoughts. Again common sense!
Even without defining, instinctively, the young generation uses amazingly good SWOT analysis!
SWOT being Strenght Opportunities Weaknesses and Threats! Good old school! Before Bologna.
We both agree, after analyzing lines and in between the lines of the statement by different institutions and individuals, that opportunities are rising with the threats and that the strength obtained will exceed weaknesses!
It was a beautiful exchange of thoughts that brought comfortable and deep sleep.
A new day, number 2, came without asking if it is acceptable to approach as time is not considering our needs and thoughts. It comes, and it goes. Nothing is forever!
While taking the dog for a must walk, I remembered the following quote:
“I must not fear. Fear is a mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me, and when it has gone past, I will turn the inner eye to see that path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.”
Reading this quote from Frank Herbert’s novel “DUNE” one thought came to my mind.
That common sensed human mind free of fear can do miracles!
But the issue is if the world needs miracles! Status quo is another option as those in power do not want change! Or they do? Cosmetic one.
It is like that beautiful joke when Londoner goes to the pub in some rural place in Ireland, orders pint of beer, and pays with a 20 pound note. While enjoying the Guinness, the men get puzzled about why he is not receiving change. Then when he realizes that change is not coming he askes the barmaid “What about change, please?” and gets an immediate answer
“Change? No, we do not like change here!”…
That is what is mind concept of the majority of us, human beings. Stuck with what we have and afraid of change!
To start with changes, an opening event is needed. The one we are living in now. Good or bad, we do not know at the moment as the game is still in play.
What we know is that we ask for miracles when something goes wrong and when the structure of different interests and the whole concept starts to crumble. Those forces that are coming to the top have the benefit not to destroy the old idea, but to take from its positive achievements and insert them to the new system, the original concept of power—something that Marx did with Hegel.
Is it that what is happening now, the two-day quarantine brain can not answer.
However, if we start to judge not by the appearance but by the meaning, we might discover the truth! If we comprehend what is in between the lines! If we sharpen our common sense!

All for the future of the people coming after us!

Everything is transient, except our deeds! What we do today will affect and us and someone else tomorrow. Better to be human, positive, and kind!
