Who decides the time line of Corona pandemic ?


We are nothing but inconsequential specks of moments in the infinity of time

What is Timeline ?

A timeline is a list of important events arranged in the order in which they happened. … Timelines are often used in history textbooks and biographies — they explain what happened during a certain period of time or to a particular person, starting with the earliest event and moving forward through time. vocobulary.com

Can we predict things in advance ?

With advancement in science,we are confident ( rather over confident ) about the various events happening in this world and are in a position to predict certain things,based on scientific models,examples include

  • Hurricanes
  • Cyclones
  • Tsunamis
  • Floods
  • Tornadoes
  • Snow storms
  • Desert storms
  • Eruptions
  • Wildfires
  • Landslide

And we are proud about our achievements and brag too.

Any thing that we can’t predict?

Though we are highly intelligent creatures,still we are not in a position to predict global disaster of other kind like

  • Pandemic like corona,what we are seeing these days
  • Earthquakes
  • Nuclear war

Now that we are in Corona Virus grip,let us talk a little bit about this.

Based on the enormous amount of information obtained so far by the so called sophisticated scientific means and with the help of models, can humans make a timeline for the virus pandemic ?

Can we say that so and so time the virus is going to disappear ?

  • Some said virus is going to die a natural death like in most of the earlier pandemics.
  • Some said the virus takes anywhere between 3 months to one year to disappear totally.
  • Scientists are busy inventing the vaccine for the corona virus and telling ,the solution is near.
  • Some are talking about the difficult times regarding economy to come back to normal and can take 1 to 3 yrs to recover.
  • Some are busy informing the number of deaths in each country.
  • Everybody playing politics by pointing fingers at the source of the infection.
  • Some saying the end of world is nearing.
  • some people are high lightening global warming as the cause and only when this is addressed ,all the other problems disappear.Each one on one’s own prediction ! Climate change & Corona Virus link
  • Some scientists predict that planet is in the midst of its 6 th mass extinction.
  • Stephen Hawking said humanity has only 1,000 years left of survival on Earth and that our species needs to colonize other planets

Who is correct & who is wrong ?

Who decides the time line ?

Dr.Antony Fauci,top infectious disease expert said “You’ve got to understand that you don’t make the timeline, the virus makes the timeline.”

And in turn God decides the fate of the virus.

We don’t really have a place in the universe, as far as on a timeline. But nothing else does, either. Therefore every moment really is the most important moment that’s ever happened, including this moment right now. Kaki King

Is not this high time we realize the presence of all powerful God ?

Just to refresh your memory,none except God makes the timeline.

The Bhagavad Gita states: “Some speak of God in wondrous terms. Some are charmed at thought of Him, but few know what He really is.”

God makes everything according to His plans.

Sometimes God makes better choices for us than we could have made ourselves.

“You make the decision with vision and God makes the provision” Mark Victor Hansen

And the conclusion is….

You can control nothing in your life and don’t cry because you are helpless.

The only thing left for you is to control intensity of your reactions to the events unfolding in this world.

Let us make our best to help each other in stopping the spread of the virus and let God do the rest.

Stop imagining the worst.

Thank you. Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

Hearts 💓 of hope


Don’t let your hearts be overwhelmed by the adversity.May you have the strength,hope and courage to overcome the situation Lailah Gifty Akita

As the corona pandemic is sweeping the World with lock downs everywhere,along with news of increase in the number of deaths, creating a gloomy picture.

As the pandemic started showing it’s true colours by isolating millions of people around the world….social media movement has started to instill Love & Hope.

Have you decorated your home with Hearts symbols ?

Social media groups like Hearts in the windows,Hearts of Hopes & A World of Hearts are formed and encouraging people to decorate their homes / windows / entry passages / side walks,with cut out of Hearts symbol,which can bring happiness to those people who are isolated.Some are decorating their homes with Rainbow symbols.

Why Heart Symbol ?

The heart has long been recognized across cultures as being a symbol of Love, charity, joy and compassion.

I am talking about the Red Colored heart❤️ (which symbolizes the classic expression of Love) and not the other colored hearts.

Hearts of Hope

Spread the Love not the Germs

Any heroic tales ?

No doubt,these days are depressing yet one can come across any number of heroic tales.

People are becoming unsung heroes.

From the courageous medics ,scientists working hard to produce the vaccine,neighbors developing community spirits rather than being greedy and suspicious,Philanthropists,securit personels helping to transport essential commodities,people joining together to help the vulnerable society,old age homes,old people,teachers & gym instructors taking online courses….I can go on….

This kind of act by volunteers, giving us a ray of Hope.

We are all Grateful to these great souls.

Don’t be panicky & anxious!

There is hope on the horizon.Don’t let Corona Virus infect your mind !

And we hope soon the pandemic comes to an end and the cure is available at the earliest.

Hearts like wild flowers

“I hope you are blessed with a heart like a wildflower,strong enough to rise again after being trampled upon,tough enough to weather the worst of the summer storms,and able to grow and flourish even in the most broken places” Nikita Gill

OK. I have a question.

What is that first thing you want to do,when everything goes back to normal ?

Can you answer ? please share your thoughts.

Thank you. Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

tired ?

There are two types of “tired”,I suppose.One is a dire need of Sleep,the other is dire need of Peace

One is ‘physical tiredness’ & and the other is ‘mental tiredness’.

If it is ‘Physical tiredness’ …easy to recover.Just take good rest.

But if the tiredness is because of Mental stress,how are you going to recover ?

Can you give mental peace a chance ? Is it possible ?

It’s easier said than done.

But time is the greatest healer.That is what they say.

Are we not  just finding an escape route just by uttering this ??

There is one phrase which is amazing in sense,one can use it in ‘bad times’ and it makes one happy and the same phrase if used in ‘good times’ it makes one sad.

“This time (moment/situation) will also go away”

Life isn’t perfect,but it has perfect moments

Life is n't perfect,but it has perfect moments

It is not the years in your life but the life in your years that counts  Adlai stevensony 

We all know that Life can never be ‘Instagram Perfect’.

But still,why we all make our life miserable ?

1.Because we worry about future which is unknown.

2..We quarrel among ourselves for what happened yesterday,who is responsible etc and trying to blame others or ourselves in the process.Yesterday is past….and nothing can be done,but still we worry for the things that happened.

3. We forget to be happy  today conveniently because we have something or other priorities to attend.

Things don’t happen as per our wish,not readily waiting for us on the silver platter.

Do you remember the quote”Good things come to those who wait” It is nothing but rubbish.Life is never kind and it owes us nothing.There is no such thing called ‘Happy Life’ and my point is that you have to ‘live’  in the moment and make your life ‘Happy’

“It’s not a case of finding the meaning of the moments,but giving the moments meaning”. Steven Redhe

This life is our own and it resonates how you want it to live.If you want it to be miserable ..it’s the way it’s going to be for you.

“you can frame a moment,But you can’t frame life”    Armin Houman

‘Hope’ is good,no doubt it sustains us but then we should make attempts to make that hope a reality by living in the ‘moment’

Then how not to feel miserable in life ? My thoughts are simple.

1.Stop over thinking.

2.Stop judging others.

3.Remember,nothing under your control.Just move along the flow

4.Avoid the mentality of perfectionist.

5.Stop criticizing.You know only part of the story.

6.Avoid negative thoughts .

7.Most importantly stop comparing yourself.

Thank you
