I have said you have but two emotions, love and fear. ²One is changeless but continually exchanged, being offered by the eternal to the eternal. ³In this exchange it is extended, for it increases as it is given. ⁴The other has many forms, for the content of individual illusions differs greatly. ⁵Yet they have one thing in common; they are all insane. ⁶They are made of sights that are not seen, and sounds that are not heard. ⁷They make up a private world that cannot be shared. ⁸For they are meaningful only to their maker, and so they have no meaning at all. ⁹In this world their maker moves alone, for only he perceives them.(A Course In Miracles, T-13.V.1:1-9)
The above quote really sums it up. What we are is love – Love is all there is, as the Beatles once put it – and fear is the choice for the ego and the world, a state somehow separate from God, which is the realm of death and destruction for we are choosing time over eternity. The battlefield of Kurukshetra in Hindu-terms.
In medicine, it has been the shift to a completely materialistic view that has resulted in the reductionist reasoning that diseases were caused by something out there that attacked us. That shift happened most strongly during the time of reason, but it goes back as far as the Western preference of Aristotle over Plato. For a while it even seemed to make sense, but in that model we live in a fearful world. In the corona crisis politicians found they can manipulate that fear and make people do anything… except for the ones who smelled a rat and woke up to the fact that there really was no pandemic by any reasonable standard, there was only a pandemic of fear. The mean death from Covid has stayed above average life expectancy in most countries, so mostly older folks died perhaps a bit earlier and from a different cause, or it was people with serious comorbidities, starting with obesity. Any way you look at it, the public health response made things arguably 2-300x worse than they needed to be, first by shutting down the economy, which Sweden proved was unnecessary, and second by mass vaccinations, which are proving counter productive.
Exit Germ Theory of Disease
The whole paradigm of fear that we experienced with the Coronavirus rests solidly on the germ theory of disease, which always looks for a causative organism as an attack from outside and views the immune system as our own anti-aircraft battery – we are at war with a hostile world. However, there is another view, generally known as the terrain theory of disease, in which the immune system is viewed more as the body’s fusebox and alarm system. Dr. Sam Bailey explains it really well:
Within the paradigm of the germ theory we are on a war footing with the world we live in and we are periodically attacked by foreign invaders, and we engage in medical practices that promise to kill the invader and prevent the invasion altogether, and/or help us recover from any damage they did. But many of the methods may be counter-productive from a standpoint that is more oriented towards the terrain theory of disease.
In fact, suppressing symptoms, let alone permanently jamming a circuit open or even jamming the entire alarm system may not be smart moves in the long run, and in fact they are a major factor in why almost 90% on healthcare dollars are now spent on chronic illnesses, or stage two and three diseases. We no longer die from stage one diseases, and the burden of disease has shifted to chronic illness and iatrogenic illness. At first blush this appears much more profitable for the medical industry, because these conditions are – to a traditional MD – “incurable” and the patient is typically greeted with medications they’ll have to take “for the rest of their lives.”
Towards a Holistic View
The terrain theory tends to look more at an equilibrium of a “terrain” a microbiome in which the immune system simply maintains the balance, and if we are under stress be it psychologically, physically or nutritionally, it lowers its guard and de facto invites the invaders in. The focus now shifts to not “who gave it to me” but to “why is my immune system down?” And if we accept the healing time that is required by the primary illness that we now experience, such as a cold, the flu, diarrhea and such, we have time to take inventory and recover, right along with lots of R&R, lots of liquids, and so on. This insight is at the center of the Sharan-India Lifestyle Medicine protocol for Covid-19, which I discussed in a previous post.
Spiraling Medical Hyperinflation
The following video makes it clear how and why our allopathic approach to medicine has been so financially disastrous. We have eliminated the easy diseases, which are actually the “alarms” that allow the body to heal itself, and allow us to recover from the stresses and strains of life, accepting the forced rest as a necessary break and healing time. In the process, we have shifted the burden of disease to 2nd and 3rd stage illnesses, which now consume close to 90% of healthcare dollars in the developed world, and since these are all incurable in medical terms, there is an every increasing amount of dollars spent on useless medical treatments. The answer is however that the 90% of medical expenses are mostly unnecessary, since most of these lifestyle diseases are preventable and largely or wholly reversible. Lifestyle Medicine including the Satvic movement in India point the way. See this video for an example.
The entire framework of allopathic medicine is based on fighting nature with ever increasing costs as a result, and the current Covid strategies are just the most egregious example. Even if there were any merit to the vaccines, they should have been deployed on a risk-stratified basis. Healthy people under 70 do not need it, because, as Prof. Sucharit Bhakdi likes to point out, you could never prove if the vaccines improve outcomes or not to a level of statistical significance, simply because the risk is so small to begin with, so they are pointless. If they were safe, they might be offered to the vulnerable, either older or with comorbidities, but healthy people simply do not need them. In all likelihood, we (in the USA) were at herd immunity before the vaccination campaign started, because about 100 million people had natural immunity even before the vaccinations started.
In short, as long as we entertain this war mentality about health and wellness, we are fueling a never ending escalation. Before Covid, we were spending 20% of GDP on Healthcare, and now I guess we are on our way to 30%, with no end in sight. The governments of the world have seemingly become subsidiaries of Pharmageddon. In the vaccine campaign it has been pointed out by a range of experts, for a variety of slightly different reasons, all variations on the same theme, such as Dr. Geert vanden Bossche, Dr. Michael Yeadon. Prof. Luc Montagnier, and Prof. Sucharit Bhakdi, that the mass vaccination campaign itself is only making the pandemic worse. Moreover, the ineffectiveness of the vaccines is now being demonstrated by the talk about booster shots. Big pharma has created a population of increasingly sick people, who become customers for life, because every normal concept of health is lost. The selling of medicine is all about manipulating people with fear about tomorrow. The Covid vaccine campaign has been an extreme example of that. It probably is sufficiently serious to be viewed as a crime against humanity.
Choosing Love, not Fear
Robin Monotti Graziadei, an Italian architect living in London has done a lot of important work on the Covid issue, including developing his “Monotti protocol,” thanks to the fact that he had Covid in late 2019, and his doctor was able to treat him, so he saw right away that the notion that there was no cure for Covid was unvarnished BS.
In the aftermath of the crisis, he has started a website, Love not Fear Mankind to address the psychological trauma caused by the relentless campaigns of fear and intimidation that our governments have foisted on us and which many of us chose to believe. We can make another choice, and so I will close with the final two paragraphs of the section in A Course in Miracles which I quoted above, titled The Two Emotions, and these final two paragraphs reflect the choice for Love:
You have but two emotions, and one you made and one was given you. ²Each is a way of seeing, and different worlds arise from their different sights. ³See through the vision that is given you, for through Christ’s vision He beholds Himself. ⁴And seeing what He is, He knows His Father. ⁵Beyond your darkest dreams He sees God’s guiltless Son within you, shining in perfect radiance that is undimmed by your dreams. ⁶And this you will see as you look with Him, for His vision is His gift of love to you, given Him of the Father for you.
11. The Holy Spirit is the light in which Christ stands revealed. ²And all who would behold Him can see Him, for they have asked for light. ³Nor will they see Him alone, for He is no more alone than they are. ⁴Because they saw the Son, they have risen in Him to the Father. ⁵And all this will they understand, because they looked within and saw beyond the darkness the Christ in them, and recognized Him. ⁶In the sanity of His vision they looked upon themselves with love, seeing themselves as the Holy Spirit sees them. ⁷And with this vision of the truth in them came all the beauty of the world to shine upon them.(ACIM, T-13.V.10:1–11:7)
