We are in the middle in a Global Pandemic called COVID-19 with every crisis there is a learning process.
That learning process is what we should be looking at. What are we learning? I have noticed that people are acting more out of kindness and reaching out to neighbours. I have people buying groceries for an elderly or disabled neighbour next door. We are trust science over greed. Under the advisement of science-based experts, economies have been shut down or slowed to the very basics. Listening to science before doing business is a new and much-needed thing to save the human habitat. Science is going to be a strong part of our new normal in society. We are learning to lean less on market value and more on science during this time. There is more.
Coming into Covid-19 we have been abusing what our planet has to offer and taking up more than our fair share of the space on the rocky planet we call home. In the past few decades, we have spread human life to over 90
% of available landmass thus muscling out many other species. We have burning up the forest for housing and farming. Farming of food has been based in death when we consider hot housed vegetables and having all fruits available any time of the year even during winter months. Some countries are even throwing away food that could be eaten with ideas like sell-by dates. Then the factory farming of animals were calves and feed cellulose so they get fatter faster and then sent to market for slaughter faster. Mass antibiotics and steroids being feed to animals to make them grow faster. We are starting to discover that all beings need kindness and freedom. Along with this human being are not any better than other animals. So, the learning continues to regrow forest and slow. These are just so of things that could be a good start. I recently had a conversation with Sara Troy of the Self Discovery Network about what our planet is trying to teach us with Covid-19
