How To Turn Corona Into Crown

Mental Emotional Spiritual Strength

Mental

#1 The first and most important thing is to not be scared.

# 2. The second most important thing is to understand that as all viruses and flues (from the very beginning of time – including this winter’s flu, which infected unfortunately 25,000,000 people, killing 25,000 (mainly through secondary issues) will soon pass.)

Emotional

#1 As Judaism (and confirmed by science) instructs – if every morning when you wake up (as the first thought of the day becomes your daily train of thoughts,) you count at least five blessings (imagine what you would miss, – even your eyes, teeth, feet, hands, if nothing else… (especially if you think about those things that really made/make you happy, like children, spouse etc.) you install in your psyche gratitude, which leads to hope and happiness. (This is a small price for the biggest prize!)

# 2. As we humans are social creatures, make a time every day to talk (have at least 1 daily talking partner – Remember, others need you, as much as you need them!!!!)

Spiritual

#1 As everything comes from G-d, therefore we need to practice as the Baal Shem Tov
(the greatest Jewish masters says) If you can find the good in the bad, the bad will become good! so: a.Corona virus is helping the world realize, we are all alike. b.Corona virus is humbling (hence as humility increases intelligence) making us all, a lot more wise. c.Corona virus, as is humbling – is also makes us more sensitive (for when things are all good – and we think we are our own God – we become self-centered (sometimes arrogant) and callous (insensitive.) ●

# 2. Most importantly, based on the great Rabbis in our time, they are teaching us that the final redemption in which the world will know no more hunger, nor sickness; no more pain, nor suffering; the era when the entire preoccupation of the world will be to get to know G-d better; and universal abundance – both material and spiritual – culminating with the resurrection of the (good) dead is literally almost here – so in the words of the sages: Do Teshuvah (return with all your heart, soul, and resources.)

The Ten Things We all need To Get

#1 Nothing is random (which doesn’t mean you can understand – as one lady wrote, “I would never wish to serve a God, I understood.”)

#2 As obviously God cannot have fear, therefore He cannot have anger, as He cannot have anger, therefore everything is a blessing.

#3 The greatest blessing that exists, is enlightenment (knowledge of beneficial matters.)

#4 The greatest enlightenment that can exist, is that God in His infinite love, wisdom, and ability, causes us to go through circumstances which inform us (to the extent, that transform.)

#5 As God is infinite, our ability to download more enlightenment is infinite (though it will need to go through sequences.)

#6 As God is infinite, the finite physical dimension, do not contradict the unbounded infinite spiritual.

#7 As is obvious, to do God’s will; but as the Kabbalistic Masters’ teach, when we do a Mitzvah (say put on Teffilin, light Shabbos candles) the infinite unbounded spiritual unites, with the limited physical.

#8 As is obvious, to live in hope, which comes from faith (especially that Moshiach will soon, will be here! – a time where miracles… all illness, poverty, will disappear! and universal infinite (eternal) enlightenment will ensue!) is about to come! and this is much better than being depressed and afraid.

#9 If you don’t know what to do, ask a friend who is experienced (and through this God will give you His wisdom.)

#10 To the extent that we wish to be god, is the extent that we are “His, (really our, )” nemesis.

I got an interesting question "Rabbi, to what extent is the coronavirus from God" and the answer of course is, that everything comes from God… and I think this is a good time to discuss a very fundamental question, and that is, a lot of us don't like to believe that bad comes from God, and the answer is that 3 realities occur at all times, and that is number one, everything comes from God for a good reason; number two because we don't understand the reason, therefore a. we are challenged to both live within reality and do what we can, as well as to find a lesson, which will enhance ourselves and reality
