Spiritual Awakening in a World Under Quarantine

The quarantine is forcing us to turn inwards. This is an opportunity to spend time healing yourself. So many of us have pain and trauma from early life, and now the system is down you don’t have to keep running away from it anymore.

Turn off the news, just for a few hours.
Turn off the conspiracies and speculation.
Shut off the external noise.
So you can, instead, find your own signal.

Many self-help teachers, life coaches and spiritual gurus will sell you on some particular technique or course to help you, but the truth is you do not need anyone or anything outside of what you are.

You simply need the courage to honestly sit down with yourself, by yourself, in the space of not knowing.

Know thyself. As Socrates wrote, is the beginning of wisdom.

From here, what you need to act on, process, or deal with will come up all by itself. Nobody can tell you what your issues or inspirations are, only you know that.

You’ve just been avoiding them. We all have. On the hamster wheel of life.

Cycling on the endless inner narrative of thoughts, beliefs, anxieties, dreams and fears. Building thoughts upon thoughts upon thoughts, and it’s the thoughts that become our sickness.

We are sick with an egoic addiction to thinking.

And so, we perceive ideas that aren’t really there. Imagine enemies where there aren’t any. Build a self image full of doubts and beliefs where there was no tangible self to begin with — not outside of the thoughts creating one.

You are hallucinating. Dreaming up a plethora of ideas that have no actuality in an altered state of consciousness called ego.


That’s what we’re waking up from.

Awakening or enlightenment, is simply, a non-altered state of consciousness.

Tuning into what is left when you stop believing in your own thoughts.

So, what is left?

Blaise Pascal once wrote that “All of humanity’s problems stem from man’s inability to sit quietly in a room alone.”

I could tell you to explore yoga, dancing, journalling, poetry, painting or meditation to get you there. But that misses the point. You must find your path, precisely because you are the path.

The Worlds has ground to a halt now.

What happens if you do too?

Dive —in.
