COVID-19 Health and Gandhi

COVID-19 Health and Gandhi

I am currently absolutely fascinated by the way in which people on social media and in general are so polarised around information, evidence, facts, fiction, comedy and opinions about this Enigma we all call COVID-19. My position is simple, I believe that the FEAR campaign coupled with the draconian legislation enforced here in Australia as an extreme response to COVID-19, has and is doing far more damage to people’s holistic health and well-being than COVID-19 will ever do, and I have now been observing what it has alleged to have done globally for around 9 or 10 months. 

The significant impacts of this FEAR campaign and the laws and legislations being enforced, I can see and perceive all around me, but the direct impacts of COVID-19 itself are completely undefined and illusive in construct. For example in all my contact with people everywhere in over 10 months I have only heard of one person who I have been told may have had this disease and he was the brother of a friend ( who is a medical doctor)  that lives in Botswana South Africa who apparantly survived the disease comfortably through maintaining a healthy immunity and a good sensible diet and lifestyle.

In some regards it is interesting that the media no longer reports on terrorism I guess when you now have something to FEAR that can be presented as being everywhere by the near completely controlled media, but in reality cannot really be seen or perceived by the senses, nor defined or explained in a way that is clear, nor really determined through observation nor even actually truly identified through tests or symptoms, and it could be in anyone anywhere at anytime and can spread anyway, then you in a sense have the ultimate terrorist. 

However, what I have determined is that COVID-19 completely disappears if you turn off all the FEAR driven media, unfortunately though when you do this, the new laws and legislations and the FEAR in the people created by COVID-19 does not just disappear. Therefore we must challenge the laws the legislation and the FEAR for they are real, the COVID-19 enigma however remains completely unknown in TRUTH.

Serendipitously today happens to be Oct 2nd the birthday of Mahatma Gandhi a man recognised in our western history as one of several significant global champions of human rights.

So today is a great day to consider and study his teachings and especially to study “Satyagraha” and his teachings on health.

Excerpts from “A Guide To Health” – Mahatma Gandhi

“As Milton says, the mind can make a hell of heaven or a heaven of hell. So heaven is not somewhere above the clouds, and hell somewhere underneath the earth! We have this same idea expressed in the Sanskrit saying, Mana êva Manushayanâm Kâranam Bandha Mokshayoh—man’s captivity or freedom is dependant on the state of his mind. From this it follows that whether a man is healthy or unhealthy depends on himself. Illness is the result not only of our actions but also of our thoughts. As has been said by a famous doctor, more people die for fear of diseases like small-pox, cholera and plague than out of those diseases themselves.” 

“We have got into the habit of calling in a doctor for the most trivial diseases. Where there is no regular doctor available, we take the advice of mere quacks. We labour under the fatal delusion that no disease can be cured without medicine. This has been responsible for more mischief to mankind than any other evil. It is of course, necessary that our diseases should be cured, but they cannot be cured by medicines. Not only are medicines merely useless, but at times even positively harmful. For a diseased man to take drugs and medicines would be as foolish as to try to cover up the filth that has accumulated in the inside of the house. The more we cover up the filth, the  more  rapidly does putrefaction go on. The same is the case with the human body. Illness or disease is only Nature’s warning that filth has accumulated in some portion or other of the body; and it would surely be the part of wisdom to allow Nature to remove the filth, instead of covering it up by the help of medicines. Those who take medicines are really rendering the task of Nature doubly difficult. It is, on the other hand, quite easy for us to help Nature in her task by remembering certain elementary principles,—by fasting, for instance, so that the filth may not accumulate all the more, and by vigorous exercise in the open air, so that some of the filth may escape in the form of perspiration. And the one thing that is supremely necessary is to keep our minds strictly under control.”

“We find from experience that, when once a bottle of medicine gets itself introduced into a home, it never thinks of going out, but only goes on drawing other bottles in its train. We come across numberless human beings who are afflicted by some disease or other all through their lives in spite of their pathetic devotion to medicines. They are to-day under the treatment of this doctor, to-morrow of that. They spend all their life in a futile search after a doctor who will cure them for good. As the late Justice Stephen (who was for some time in  India ) said, it is really astonishing that drugs of which so little is known should be applied by doctors to bodies of which they know still less! Some of the greatest doctors of the West themselves have now come to hold this view. Sir Astley Cooper, for instance, admits that the ‘science’ of medicine is mostly mere guess-work; Dr. Baker and Dr. Frank hold that more people die of medicines than of diseases; and Dr. Masongood even goes to the extent of saying that more men have fallen victims to medicine than to war, famine and pestilence combined!– Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi
