Blog #21, Coronavirus, What Now?
Well folks, have you had enough? Enough of what? I refer to the fear, the panic, the distraction, and the stupidity demonstrated by so many people in the face of such a viral threat to our well-being, and even survival for those who are susceptible to coronavirus infection.
I am constantly amazed at the way people react, and abreact to any seeming threat, without knowing much about it. I am further amazed how our leaders, mostly, take advantage of this crisis to compound the fear, the panic, and yes, the consequential control over many people and the country they govern.
I am amazed at the naivete, the gullibility, the narrow conscious awareness of so many people in not knowing exactly what is going on, even though facts are being rammed down their throats on a daily basis. What are these facts?
According to the figures I have read about on the internet, the USA CDC estimates that in the USA alone, between 29,000 and 59,000 people have died of the common flu this winter, 2019/2020, the season of which terminates in May, so the figures could be even higher. The winter season of 2018/2019 saw 34,200 flu-related deaths, and 2017/2018 saw 61,000 flu-related deaths.
Furthermore, the WHO (World Health Organization) estimates global flu-related deaths are between 29,000 and 650,000 per year.
According to Worldometer on the internet, so far, in the world, as at 1st April, 2020, there have been:
- 858,127 cases of coronavirus.
- 177,141 of those have now recovered.
- 42,140 deaths.
So, I ask, why the hype? What is the intention? Allow me to give you some other, far more serious news!
I obtained this information the International Centre for Missing and Exploited Childre;
In Australia, an estimated 20,000 children are reported missing every year.
Australian Federal Police, National Coordination Centre.
In Canada, an estimated 45,288 children are reported missing each year.
Government of Canada, Canada’s Missing – 2015 Fast Fact Sheet.
In Germany, an estimated 100,000 children are reported missing each year.
Initiative Vermisste Kinder.

The grand total is 881,125 children go missing all over our planet every year. EVERY YEAR!!
Please let that sink in for a moment. Where is the hype? Where is the panic? Where is the concern? Where is the media? No hype, no panic, no concern, and the media is no where to be seen. I ask why? What do you ask? What do you say to this news? Yet, with 42,000 coronavirus deaths the entire world, or so it seems, is in lockdown. What do you think is really going on? Have you thought about the possibility that all this is intentional? If so, for what purpose? Is it possible that those who runs this planet, those unseen few, have a dire agenda for this planet, and for YOU? You do not have to be a rocket scientist to connect the dots, but so many seem not to be able to perceive anything outside their very narrow box of perception. Why? Does it have to remain that way?
In my attempts to study viruses, I note that many comments are conjecture, rather than factual, which tells me that either the scientists do not know, or they do not want the people to know. I am led to understand that viruses are not biological living organisms, and that they can only replicate within a host cell, utilizing the cell’s biological material to do so. I am told that you cannot catch a virus by touch, and that it has to enter the body in a manner whereby it can survive the T-cell protection by the body. It is possible that viruses are propagated through being injected with it, and this is a subject I wish to know much more about, because, it is also possible that the people are being fed misinformation, and are being deceived.
I have given you the bad news, with statistics, now here is the good news.
Every human being has a Divine Right to live out their lives in peace and well-being, according to their measure, as long as they cause no harm to others. Hippocrates knew about this and even created an oath for medical doctors to take before they begin practicing as doctors, yet, far too many seem to forget that oath.
Another positive point: The real power of any society remains with the people, always! Fact!!!
The problem is that human beings, presently, seem to be unaware of this truth, and they willingly give their power away to the very people they elect to lead them. They allow themselves to be disenfranchised, and ultimately, enslaved! If this is what the people of each country want, if this is what the people of the world want, then, so be it! The majority rules, just like a democracy! Then, it is time for me to turn off my computer, close my website, and begin growing vegetables, if I am allowed to do so.
On the other hand, if and when many more people choose to wake up and see what is happening before their eyes, we as a group, as a society, within each country and the world can make a different choice. We can institute positive change. If gasoline/petrol is too expensive, we can stop buying it, and the price will be reduced, of that I am sure. How do I know? Because everyone is in lockdown, people are not driving their cars at this time, and in the USA, the news says that the energy/oil industry is in the verge of collapse, and only after a few weeks. What does this tell you?? Do you see your power, as individuals operate in harmony with each other, as a group?
The main limitation to this incredible possibility, is that far too many people have been dumbed down over the years, they have been influenced and programmed to think, speak, and act in a prescribed manner, BY OTHERS! Just open your eyes! For instance, you cannot say a particular word now, because it is racist, and so on. There is still time to make positive changes, and it MUST begin with you, all of the people, all of us! What does this really mean?
All of us have been influenced and programmed how to think, speak and act by our parents, the school system , and any other system. In most cases, much of what we learned prevented us from being our true and authentic Selves. Instead, we became a reflection of those who taught, guided, influenced and programmed us. These programmes, beliefs and patterns of behaviour are learned, and most of them limit our creative and authentic expression, preventing us from being who we really are. Yes, most of us do not know who we are, really! We think we are the personality, but that is learned. We think we are the body, and we are much more than that. So, here are 4 questions, I have asked you before;
- Who are you?
- Where do you come from?
- What are you doing here?
- Where are you going?
If you are interested in knowing the answers, you are obliged to begin a journey of Self-education, so that you may learn who you are and what you are to do in this life, on this planet, at this time. To do that, you are to remove all obstacles and limitations that prevent you from perceiving that which is already in place. This is like the sun, which is always there, even when you cannot see it because of clouds. Remove the clouds and the sun is there. Remove your inner limitations and the real you is already there.
How do you achieve this? I thought you would never ask.
Over the millennia, many wise people have presented us with various techniques, practices and modalities to help us develop our greater human potential. I have written 18 books about all this, which can be seen on my website, this website, anthonyaltmanbooks.com. There are also many others who say and write the same information, in different forms of expression as I do, and they have videos and books. Thousands of them. It is for you to find that, if you care to seek it out. What I offer is a fraction of what is available, and could be a good start, on your sacred journey to YourSelf.
One practice stands out for sure, and that is meditation. This is something most people can do, and in many cases, it does not cost much money, or any money. However, to learn a formal technique of meditation like Transcendental Meditation, which provides you with a mantra, and really trains you extremely well in the art of meditating, a teacher is necessary, and a fee is to be paid. Such a guide can answer your questions which are the result of your subjective experiences during meditation. However, if money is an issue, then one can find other simple techniques that do not cost anything, but, neither do you have the benefit of a teacher/guide. To accommodate this, I have begun a Global Meditation Programme, twice daily, and details of this can be found on this website, or, if you are reading this elsewhere, go to anthonyaltmanbooks.com, and see the page, Global & Guided Meditations, in order to read the details. There are also two meditation techniques adequately described for use by those who do not know how to meditate. I am also available to answer your meditation question, by sending me your question on the Contact Page of the same website. Join the growing number of people who are waking up. Not woke, like the media uses this term. Just waking up, not being asleep, having the eyes to see, and the ears to hear more truth. Such people are doing something proactive in order to be e better version of themselves. Let us meditate together, wherever you are!
With best wishes and Good Health to you, and all others.
