If You Are Infected with the Virus That Causes COVID-19, How Do You Deal with Your Fears?

Would you choose to live in presence today?

What if the risk of death is supposedly higher for you for some reason? Maybe you have diabetes or some other compromised state of immunity. Should you then, if infected, give in to the fear of death? No! But let’s look at it from the point of view of a a man who had good reason to fear dying. He was in a Nazi camp during WWII.

What does a concentration camp victim and author have to tell us about facing off fear in the time of COVID-19’s visit to our planet?   The picture below is of the Auschwitz Concentration Camp, where many faced a threat to their lives, including Viktor Frankl.  Many died, and only some lived, so it was a much greater threat to life than COVID-19 is to most.

Viktor Frankl wrote in “Man’s Search for Meaning”… “We must never forget that we may also find meaning in life even when confronted with a hopeless situation, when facing a fate that cannot be changed.

For what then matters is to bear witness to the uniquely human potential at its best, which is to transform a personal tragedy into a triumph, to turn one’s predicament into a human achievement.

When we are no longer able to change a situation… we are challenged to change ourselves.”  (Ref. the book)

Many who end up with COVID-19 may be gripped by fear, particularly given all they have heard on the news, all of the horror stories.

But even those with shortness of breath while infected with COVID-19 can use what is happening to raise their consciousness rather than give in to the negativity and die.

The ultimate truth is: “I am.”  The sense of “I exist,” will never leave you.

Your body may or may not fall from COVID-19 (nearly everyone survives statistically despite the difficult period of illness some experience), but YOU cannot die.  Your body can die, true, but you cannot die.

You are not the body that your consciousness runs around a small portion of the planet. You HAVE a body you are running around a small portion of the planet!  Know that and be free of the fear of death…

Once you know that truth, the fear will leave you, and you’re ability to survive will vastly improve.  The WILL TO LIVE is one of the most powerful healing states of consciousness you can tap into.  We’ve all seen it with the passing of family members after they have felt “their life was complete.”

I challenged my mother to stay alive through Christmas of 2018 if she wanted to, because she dropped her oxygen level to the low 80’s (much too low) a few weeks before Christmas as we were leaving a local theater.  But she had to make the decision to stay herself in order to do so.

I asked her if she wanted to live through Christmas at least.  She said she’d stay through Christmas and then decide when she was ready to go.  (To be clear, I am not talking about assisted suicide.  She knew that when she was ready, she would pass.)

Her body started dying quickly the morning after the rest of her grandchildren showed up for our Christmas get-together on Dec. 26th and she passed in early January.  Coincidence?  No.  That was her plan, though some would say “It was God’s plan.”  That’s fine.  If you are one with God, what’s the difference between your plan and God’s?  😉  Nevertheless, she still had to “ask to receive.”

If humans can decide when they die, don’t you think they can decide to when to live?

My advice to those who those with COVID-19 is to…

  1. Know the truth of who you really are. You are NOT the body. You are that which is running a body around. Once you know that deeply, you will free yourself from all fear, in the sense that it will never stick to you again.  You can feel fear as a warning and spontaneously allow the fear to leave you.  Fearing death is holding it in mind.  YOU cannot be extinguished no matter what happens to your body.  Once you realize this, you can relax into your life and live it fully…
  2. Decide you will live by exerting your WILL TO LIVE.
  3. Take the actions needed to live that flow from steps 1 and 2.  You may need to take several actions or none at all. Just be open to what is needed…
