There are certain things that are on the cards that are meant to be, and if like me you follow the spiritual path like that is exactly how life happens.
‘What is meant to be will be’ whether we are comfortable with its concept, or not. My blog and my book were fated. What happened around my disability was meant to happen. I was meant to get to this place with my writing.
Then there are things that happen that aren’t fated, but became fated, things that are self-inflicted. Covid is a virus we have brought upon ourselves. Experts believe that coronavirus is likely to have originated in bats or pangolins – a small mammal poached for use in traditional Chinese medicine in China.
The first transmission to humans was in Wuhan, China. Some reports trace the earliest cases back to a seafood and animal market in Wuhan, and it is possible from here that the virus started to spread to humans. But we are to blame now, because we’re not being careful enough and we’re being selfish.
Governments are to blame for not responding quickly enough to the pandemic. For going into lockdown too late and easing lockdown too early, but the general population is also not working with what they know and by many now not masking up, the virus is spreading.
So, I go back to ‘what is meant to be will be’ but we are also responsible for changing certain elements. Yes, certain things are fated, but certain things are self-inflicted, and those ‘things’ then become fated. But we need to pull back, we must change.
