“It is not the germs we need to worry about; it is our inner terrain.”
― Louis Pasteur (1822-1895)
2020 has been the year of SARS-CoV-2, the novel virus belonging to the family of coronaviruses and responsible for a global pandemic manifesting as a severe respiratory disorder known as COVID-19. As this blog is being written, according to the Johns Hopkins Coronavirus Resource Center, there are more than 85 million COVID cases Globally, over 20 million in the US alone.
Viruses are some of the most primitive known life forms on the planet, with the ongoing debate about their precise biological placement. Viruses are very interesting in that they can only survive inside a living cell. So they must have a living cell to survive and replicate. Hence they are often considered as ‘organisms at the edge of life’. Like all living organisms, they contain genes and can evolve through natural selection. But they differ in that they lack a cellular structure and cannot maintain a metabolic process or reproduce outside of a host.
However, what’s most interesting to us is the prospect of the availability of tools within us that might indicate our pre-disposition to attacks such as viruses. And Sahaja meditation has a particularly unique and intricate inner subtle energy mechanism, pointing us in this direction.
