Survival of the Fittest

Yes, it is heading right there. The way the virus is spreading, it surely looks like it is going to affect a lot of people. My question to you is, so what?

Statistics have proven that it is fatal only to the old and to those who have an underlying health condition. They have a reason to be worried. Why are the 90% of the rest of the population freaking out? Thousands of them got it and they have recovered. Why don’t you look at those statistics too.

What you should be doing is SHIELDING the old and the sick. You know for sure that even if you get it, you will be fine. The only way you won’t recover is by being scared, which in turn, plummets your immunity. The 90% of you out there should stop thinking about yourself. This is not about you, you are safe even if you get it.

Shift your focus to the sick and the old. Protect them as much as you can. Keep them in quarantine for the next 3 months or so. Take care of them, give them books to read, movies to watch, good food to eat, sit and talk to them, and don’t expose them to anyone coming in and going out of the house. If possible, confine them to a room or a floor. It is going to be tough for them to be confined, not to meet the grandchildren, or not to go out for a walk.

Remember, they will be frustrated and they will take out their frustration on you. Always remember how they patiently took care of you when you were that adamant and obstinate child. They never lost their patience, did they? You asked them innumerable stupid questions and they patiently replied. You got angry and yelled at them, but they kept their cool. So, it’s time to repay them for the years of patience, protection and care they gave you. Explain to them that human existence is going through a filtration process and this is something nobody in the world is able to stop so far; they are trying. Meanwhile, it’s our duty to protect you, as you are vulnerable. If we catch it, we will be just fine. This is what they would have done to you when you were a child, talk, and explain!

It is very important to take them into confidence, tell them that they have to do it, and reassure them that you are there for them. If you are going to get scared and do not stand as a shield for the sick and the elderly, few of them will perish, but in the bargain you will also perish due to your fear. If you realise that it cannot kill you and stand strong, you and most of them will survive.

This doesn’t mean that we act stupid and not follow the social distancing that we been advised to follow. It is very important to stop further spread in whatever way we can.

To be able to fight the virus, you need to understand that nothing will happen to you even if you get corona. It will just affect you like a common cold or cough. The only way it will weaken you, is by weakening your strong immunity and it will happen ONLY IF YOU LET FEAR GET TO YOU!

Let all those who are not at risk, muster courage, become a shield around the old and the sick and take the fight to the virus.

    Thanku Dr Manoj for u r mindblowing&mind boosting msg given by u in rite time. But thing is oursubconcious mind is slave of super conscious mind it can’t discrete good or bad it blindly follows what ever suiperconcius mind commands as per eminent psychologists and most of the spiritual guru. We remove the negative Mudras from our subconscious mind by feeding our superconciouse mind by positive thoughts other wise called mind management with help of different types of meditation s this is accepted by so called modern sciences also hence my appeal to people follow such methods and be fittest. Thank u dr Manoj plz for give me if any thing is wrong. Bye bye

    Yes doc you are right. I’ve gone through many hurdles from very young age of my life but every time felt like “ok let the difficulty happen I’ll see when it comes to me”. Now the present situation of carona, pandemic, I’m having the same feeling of ok let it come, will see what it will do. I’m following all the measures that Govt is advising, eating healthy & sleeping well. So no fear. The moment we get fear heartbeat will increase. So why to trouble ourselves and the best way is to keep ourselves busy doing some physical work I feel. Thank you doctor. I had my health problems healed by you in a short-time and I’m very happy now. I’ve Refered many of my friends and they are also very happy. I’m following your articles.
