I understand how you feel because I feel the same. The only question is to question the reality of what we’re experiencing.
It is being said we are facing monumental pivotal moments leading to the extinction of humans or earth.
It is also said we are facing one crisis after another. COVID being one them and felt by most including myself.
COVID has introduced us to the darker side of governments and their ability to lock us up and restrict us.
So what is the reality versus what we are experiencing right now?
What we are experiencing right now are two things.
The first is an event on Earth that really isn’t that unusual or even as great as we read in the media. When I say great I mean as in ‘great disaster ‘
There has been worse much worse.
For example, if we could speak to someone that survived the bubonic plague, Spanish flu, the smallpox outbreak, or even leprosy outbreaks they would probably let laugh at our reactions.
Yet our reactions are based on our life experience – not historical experiences – which really means our reactions to ourselves are justified and always fear or emotionally driven.
The truth really is that what we are experiencing is nothing like what has been before.
The second thing is our leaders. Unfortunately, almost all leaders usually have zero specialization in what they are doing. They are mostly driven by an urge to either help others or magnify themselves to others.
Most leaders aren’t tested. Like a band is stretched until it snaps most leaders are rarely stretched so we mostly never see their breaking point or weakness.
COVID has exposed their inability to understand and know what to do. This means they take advice from others that actually might not know either or they simply copy and late what other governments are doing.
This is highlighted time and again when Boris Johnson uses this for his reason to lockdown. His words…’This is what others are doing in Europe so we should FOLLOW’ … (paraphrased)
What we are seeing is a mass thought being played out through many countries that are simply not sure what to do. So rather than do nothing they do something. Something is on the basis that something is better than nothing.
Does this mean our draconian laws are something more sinister? I don’t think so. I simply think we are reacting g in fear to something we have never experienced before. They feel they are also doing the right thing despite proof to show otherwise.
This means we as the public are facing things we have never faced before yet things that have passed before and passed much worse.
We have no experience, they have no experience. The result is a fear-driven response that can change daily.
This creates high anxiety. High anxiety can lead to fear of the unknown. Fear of the unknown removes purpose in life. Life with no purpose is no longer life.
So despite what we are facing right now the question must be asked is this
‘Is my current perceived reality real?’
Our current reality will always be far happier if we are in control of our lives and thoughts. When we leave control of our life to others this will make us unhappy if we are forced to do something we do not want to do.
So this is a gifted time in history where we are being asked by nature to make a real choice.
The choice is this.
Are you in control of your life or is someone else?
During this period you will see suicides and mass fear. This is because a lack of deeper belief in themselves to control their own life. The other problem with not being in control of your own life is you are making another responsible for your happiness.
I began a new daily mantra for my 3rd U.K. lockdown. This lockdown is looking brutal. It’s looking strict.
The government is trying things they’ve never tried before. It will hurt and kill many.
So I decided to start my daily mantra I’ll share with you as it might help you.
I am responsible for my own
You cannot take that from me
You cannot control me
I am in control of my own life
And in harmony with that, I created a plan to maximize my life during lockdown 3 in England.
I will do what keeps me happy first.
I will take control of my own health and stop curing the government for gym closure.
I don’t need anyone to keep me safe
I am fully responsible for my safety
I don’t need anything from anyone
I shall create my own wealth.
And my reality is none of this is that hard. All it takes is a very simple lockdown 3 plan.
So in harmony with the above, I have created a plan and that plan is in my control no one else’s control – if I control it of course.
At the first lockdown on March 23rd, I had the same approach, but not as refined. 2020 was one of the best years I have experienced in terms of life, prospects, and wealth.
The reality is humanity has been through much worse. This is a blip on the scale compared to what’s been before.
In the meantime, you just sit tight, create your plan, and more importantly take control of what you can take control of. And never forget there has been worse and this period will pass.
Stay in control of your life and you will thrive during lockdown 3.0 England.
