THE CORONA VIRUS AS REVELATION
"There is a dangerous, invisible and contagious virus that has been insidiously spreading and replicating itself throughout the human species that is re-shaping and potentially destroying human civilization – but it is not the coronavirus. The Native American people have been pointing at that humanity has been afflicted with a mind-virus that they call “wetiko.” Wetiko is a psycho-spiritual disease of the soul that is literally at the root of the collective madness—and the resultant evil—that our species is destructively acting out all over the world. Called by many different names throughout history, the spirit of wetiko renders every other issue secondary, for wetiko is the over-arching umbrella that contains, subsumes, informs and underlies every form of self-and-other destruction that our species is acting out seemingly uncontrollably in our world today on every scale. Though largely unrecognized, this mind-virus—which cultivates and feeds on fear—is a far more deadly global pandemic than the coronavirus.
It changes everything when we recognize that the coronavirus is an emanation into our world of the higher-dimensional wetiko mind-virus. This is to say that if looked at with the proper vision, we can recognize that the coronavirus pandemic is a revelation of the formless, invisible virus of the mind called wetiko. Having its roots within the collective unconscious of our species, the immaterial wetiko mind-virus, by distorting our perceptions and sense-making, acts itself out through our unconscious blind-spots while hiding itself from being seen by us – keeping us in the dark, so to speak. Seeing wetiko, however, simultaneously dispells its power over us while empowering ourselves. The coronavirus pandemic could potentially be the lens that helps us bring into focus and see wetiko, which would be a profound demarcation point in human history.
It is a limited and overly one-sided materialistic viewpoint which thinks that the coronavirus is solely a physical virus. Having multiple theaters of operation and channels of influence, the coronavirus is multi-dimensional in its impact. It is affecting our world—both outer and inner—in practically every way imaginable. The virus deeply impacts the underlying social matrix that fashions human culture, leaving no stone unturned in its effects upon our world and our psyche.
Encoded within the biological virus are catalysts which trigger reactions within the human psyche (fear, stress, anxiety, etc.) which change our thinking and behavior. These psychological and behavioral reactions are not separate from, but rather, continuous and co-extensive with the physical virus, appendages of the virus’ subtle, psycho-physical energetic body. This is to say that the virus’ myriad effects and repercussions throughout every area of our lives are not separate from the virus itself. The effects of the coronavirus on our world—and within our minds—can only be separated out from the physical virus in thought only, which is to say that the idea that the virus is separate from its effects is just that—an idea—with no basis in reality.
Similar to how at the quantum level—which is to say at the reality level—mind and matter interpenetrate each other so fully as to reveal themselves to be indivisible, the physical coronavirus and the wetiko mind-virus are not two separate things interacting, but are inseparable aspects of a greater whole unified quantum field in which mind and matter are one. It greatly behooves us to step out of our dualistic mind-set, expand our limited and fragmented vision and see the actual multi-faceted and multi-dimensional nature of the coronavirus from a more wholistic perspective in which we begin to recognize the inseparability between the physical world and consciousness.
The coronavirus and its multitude of effects in both our world and within our minds, when all seen together as interrelated aspects of a greater whole, are—just like a symbol in a dream—the revelation of something deeper. This something deeper is the wetiko mind-virus that has been plaguing humanity from time immemorial." Paul Levy
