Coronavirus — time to reflect

Coronavirus -- time to reflect

By Prof A Majeed Chaudhry

The recent developments around the world in wake of Corona Debacle makes one wonder that this world is very temporary and fragile.
There seems to be a total loss of control.

No super power, no nuclear power, no economic power seems to have any answer.
One wonders that the whole world had gone astray.
There was no respect for humanity.
We are all divided on one or the other context. Total disrespect for humanity; be it in the form of uncalled for wars on trivial excuses like “weapons of mass destruction” and so many other things alike.

The supreme authority of Almighty had to come in action. Time for everyone to ponder over and mend our ways to live peacefully in this very temporary and short life.

Here are words of Spanish Mr Vivienne who says the earth whispered but you did not hear.
The earth spoke but you did not listen
The earth screamed but you turned her off.
And so I was born…
I was not born to punish you..
I was born to awaken you..
The earth cried out for help…
Massive flooding. But you didn’t listen.
Burning fires. But you didn’t listen.
Strong hurricanes. But you didn’t listen.
Terrifying Tornadoes. But you didn’t listen.
You still don’t listen to the earth when.
Ocean animals are dying due to pollutants in the waters.
Glaciers melting at an alarming rate.
Severe drought.
You didn’t listen to how much negativity the earth is receiving.
Non-stop wars.
Non-stop greed.
You just kept going on with your life..
No matter how much hate there was..
No matter how many killings daily..
It was more important to get that latest iPhone than worry about what the earth was trying to tell you..
But now I am here.
And I’ve made the world stop in its tracks.
I’ve made YOU finally listen.
I’ve made you take refuge.
I’ve made you stop thinking about materialistic things..
Now you are like the earth…
You are only worried about YOUR survival.
How does that feel?
I give you fever.. as the fires burn on earth.
I give you respiratory issues.. as pollution filled the earth’s air.
I give you weakness as the earth weakens every day.
I took away your comforts..
Your outings.
The things you would use to forget about the planet and its pain.
And I made the world stop…
And now…
China has better air quality.. Skys are clear blue because factories are not spewing pollution unto the earth’s air.
The water in Venice is clean and Because the gondola boats that pollute the water are not being used.
YOU are having to take time to reflect on what is important in your life.
Again I am not here to punish you.. I am here to Awaken you…
When all this is over and I am gone… Please remember these moments..
Listen to the earth.
Listen to your soul.
Stop Polluting the earth.
Stop Fighting amongst each other.
Stop caring about materialistic things.
And start loving your neighbors.
Start caring about the earth and all its creatures.
Start believing in a Creator.
Because next time I may come back even stronger….
Coronavirus.. — Pak Destiny
