Take care of and protect each other. Cats and Dogs may be a lot of things, but Stupid isn't one of them.
Do you suppose they are concerned with the color of each other's fur? I Don't Think So.
Update 19 June 2020
I watched episode nr. 3 (27 September 2017) of David Whitehead's Truth Warrior podcast this morning titled Survival/Warrior Code/Transhumanism/Free Will, in which he makes some excellent comments about identity, being confident and creating a Truly Empowered Self. The segment I'm referring to is in the clip below, but I advise you to watch the full episode for context.
I would translate what David is saying to be secure within yourself to such an absolute extent, that validation from without becomes irrelevant. If you can attain that level of confidence you will be a Truly Empowered Being- regardless of race, gender or any other label that society wants to assign to you- who is able to inspire and empower others in a positive way.
The internet is filled with the "COVID-19" opinion of every Tom, Dick and Harry and Molly, Nell and Sue on the planet, but the ones that are often overlooked are the meditations that are shared in quiet corners online. (yes, these do exist)
If you, like me, are highly intuitive and have been meditating for years, the information in these videos will most likely resonate with you. If you're not sensitive to energy and/or if metaphysical information of any kind gives you the creeps, skip these videos because they will sound like gobbledygook and you will not understand any of it.
It doesn't matter if you believe in "mediums" or "channelers" (and yes indeed, there are a LOT of kooks out there), or if you think these women found what they are saying on the beach written on a piece of paper in a bottle. Watch and listen with a critical but open mind and you just might learn a thing or two.
To quote Shakespeare:
There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio,
Than are dreamt of in your philosophy.
This video particularly resonated with me as I am of Creole, Caucasian and Chinese descent.
There are valuable insights in these 2 videos too. Freedom Rules.
I started reading Eastern and Western philosophy when I was 14 and this Zen parable, which is one of my favorites, is particularly relevant to the world today. (..only a handful of the books that I've read are listed on my site)
After having lost the comfort of daily routines, loved ones, perceived economic security and most likely even a sense of what's real and what's not, many people are craving for anything that seems like "good news" and they will latch on to anyone or anything that promises "something better".
This is one of the intended outcomes of the "COVID-19" trauma-based mind control operation, as it's the best way to get the global population to march into the psychopaths' Global Fascist Surveillance State without too much resistance. Being stuck in your surroundings for months on end and being disconnected from everything you knew before, with no sense of what's coming next is very traumatizing if you're not trained for it. Very few people are.
Let me remind you again that nothing in life is certain – "COVID-19" or no "COVID-19" – and you will die someday. Living a long, healthy and prosperous life is certainly a possibility, but you'll need to come to terms with your own mortality if you don't want to live in fear of the unknown.
Change is the only constant and it's very difficult to deal with now for most people, because the CHANGE happened very suddenly for those who had never heard of The New World Order before 2020. That's OK- you've had a major wake-up call and the takeaway is that if you work on your mental (often neglected but very important), emotional and physical stamina, you will be equipped to deal with whatever is to come. ABP, Always Be Prepared, but don't be paranoid.
Try to keep your mind sharp and be extremely vigilant and critical of whatever is being presented to you as a "solution" in the days and months ahead. Not all the key players are in the public eye and not everyone in the public eye is what they seem. There are forces at work, also for Good, that you could not even begin to comprehend.
Don't let the mainstream media or anyone run your mind and don't rush to judgment unless the moment absolutely calls for it. This doesn't mean that you shouldn't be proactive if you feel so inclined. If you feel inspired to act go for it. Not rushing to judgement means that, if and when you can, it's best to wait and see how things (start to) play out first, and determine your actions based on your best assessment of the development of events.
Remember that your assessments of events will only be as good, as the Quality of the Information that you base them on.
The whole process of Nature is an integrated process of immense complexity, and it’s really impossible to tell whether anything that happens in it is good or bad — because you never know what will be the consequence of the misfortune; or, you never know what will be the consequences of good fortune. – Alan Watts
Return to spirituality. Forget about religion because it isn't good for you.
Understand that in order for organized religion to succeed it has to make people believe they need it. In order for people to put faith in something else they must first lose faith in themselves. So the first task of organized religion is to make you lose faith in yourself. The second task is to make you see that it has all the answers and you do not. And the third and most important task is to make you accept it's answers without question.
If you question, you start to think. If you think, you start to go back to that Source Within. Religion can't have you do that because you're liable to come up with an answer different from what it has contrived. So religion must make you doubt your Self; must make you doubt your own ability to think straight.
The problem for religion is that this very often backfires for if you cannot accept without doubt your own thoughts, how can you not doubt the new ideas about God which religion has given you? It is religion which has created agnostics.
Everywhere religion has gone it has created disunity. Religion has separated man from God, man from man, man from woman, thus setting the stage for one of the greatest travesties ever foisted upon the human race.
Therefore, return to Spirituality. Find your own answers, Within.
