Social distancing is a luxury. Staying at home and not working is a luxury. The poor are always oppressed, and they are limited in this current COVID-19 situation as well.
The poor people lack adequate medical care, develop diseases which put them more at risk. They live in cramped quarters, and are exposed to the most toxic environments and influences.
Healthy, fresh food costs more money, so the poor tend to eat more fatty, artificial, and processed foods. This diet leads to diseases which are not treated, and early deaths.
So, Empire Consciousness is the cause of poverty, and the discrepancy between the haves and have-nots.
We are told things will "get back to a normal" soon. It is hard to believe that this is going to go away.
Empire Consciousness creates a hierarchical governmental structure. Those in power often have no real contact with those struggling at the bottom.
All the more reason to raise our consciousness to Oneness Consciousness. When we see all as worthy, equal, and deserving, life will change.
That is the message of Easter and Passover. Freedom from slavery to Empire Consciousnes. Crossing the Red Sea to the Promised Land is the liberation necessary if we want the planet to survive.
This current plague is Godwink in disguise. It is a WAKE-UP CALL. Wake up, people. Wake up from the tomb of ignorance and discrimination. Wake up from self-righteousness and entitlement.
