The coronavirus killed our egoistic inception and brings us much closer to each other. It drove us all to the same state: everyone is sitting at home, out of work, and we do not know what will happen tomorrow or what today will bring.
All of humanity, the entire globe, billions of people, are in a single state regarding the present and the future.
The coronavirus places us all into one community, one system. This is not just a virus but a special spirit that takes root in our mind and our senses and creates a muddle out of us. We suddenly begin to understand and feel each other, to sense our closeness. It is easy for us to visualize any condition that has befallen others.
Look what this virus has done, how skillfully it works. In one swoop, in just a few weeks, it built a new humanity out of us. Of course we still hope to return to the old, thinking that this pandemic will end if not today then tomorrow.
But the quarantine might last a few more months, and when we get out of it, we will find ourselves in a new world, in a new humanity, among new people with a different mentality, different perception, and different attitude.
Everything will be different.
This virus will wash us, clean all the stupid things out of our heads, it will return us to our families. It will teach us to stay at home instead of rushing from place to place. We will get used to a new life. We must thank the virus for doing this job.
Of course, we see that the coronavirus brings death and suffering. But on the scale of all of humanity, it is making such useful changes in society that previously seemed possible only at the cost of terrible blows and wars. When we summarize the changes made by the virus in our lives, we will understand that this is a messenger from above.
For the first time in history, a tiny virus is making such changes simultaneously around the globe, in all of humanity. And doing this despite all our modern development, global communication, understanding, and knowledge. But look at how it dealt with us. In an instant, everyone surrendered and accepted its terms. Is there any other force in nature capable of such actions?
