After posting my article last week CoronaVirus – Immune Nourishment & Resilience, I have been reflecting on human behaviours and peoples panic responses during times of uncertainty.
When people’s deepest vulnerabilities have been tapped (thank you media!), we have seen an inordinate flurry of people hitting the supermarket shelves and panic buying toilet paper in the trolley loads. This hasn’t only just happened here in Australia – but is a phenomenon taking place all over the world, in countries where there are cases of Corona Virus.
Why? Why toilet paper? Isn’t the CoronaVirus attracted to the lungs ?
Scarcity & Hoarding
When faced with a perceived crisis, there are many people diving deep into the lowest possible denominator. Their deepest fears of death, survival, scarcity of resources rise up from the subconscious, such that their behaviours may become irrational or even obsessive.
This response comes from unconscious beliefs, a deep sense of separateness in this world. Its a ‘dog eat dog’ world after all, and if I don’t ‘grab what I can’ to ensure my survival then I will surely perish.
Per Nikki Edwards (School of Public Health and Social Work, QUT):
Toilet paper symbolises control. We use it to “tidy up” and “clean up”. It deals with a bodily function that is somewhat taboo.
When people hear about the coronavirus, they are afraid of losing control. And toilet paper feels like a way to maintain control over hygiene and cleanliness.
Toilet Paper then can be seen as a means of ‘controlling the uncontrollable’. The MORE that I BUY and stash away, and to hell with what other people may need in this world, then the better I will feel about being in charge of my wellbeing. Damn the consequences, all I am interested in doing is taking care of me.
Personal self-care, nurturing & self-love are most gracious gifts to embody. They are behaviours that serve not just yourself, but also the betterment of society. They serve connection, and a fellow love of our global human family.
However, when your ‘self-care’ is ‘forced’ (from a place of fear) & to the exclusion of others or when your actions take from another or cause injury… then that is not self-care. That is narcissistic viral seeding.
Viral-Infection of the Mind
This deeply felt fear of lack. Scarcity. Separateness. To me I see these core feelings as the REAL VIRUSes that are running rampant. They could even be THE MOST INFECTIOUS dis-ease that creates the problems we see in the world today.
The panic, the selfishness, the frenzied actions that CoronaVirus has triggered in people is highlighting the viral-infections that exist within the global mind of a humanity that are fast asleep.
Could this viral-fear, be ‘feeding’ the CoronaVirus ? We already know that fear/stress suppresses the immune system of the body. So could GLOBAL FEAR be the catalyst that teleports the virus & fertilises its epidemic spread ?
There is a Gift
Personally, I see this epidemic, ok, PANDEMIC of irrational behaviour as a beautiful gift. Whilst we cannot change the behaviours of others, we can certainly focus our Hearts & Souls on our own behaviours and create a collective momentum of change.
A light has been shone on this shadow side of human nature, so maybe this represents the perfect time to demonstrate more deeply the qualities of compassion, caring, empathy and sharing. That life is a gift.
To reach out to others when they feel alone, unloved, or scared. To share your bounty – even if its one square of Toilet Paper at a time. To demonstrate that at the Heart of things, you value kindness… and maybe, just maybe this will inspire other people to do the same.
How can we as a humanity find our way back to being BENEFICIAL to WHOLE.
