Sadhguru talks about the coronavirus from his spiritual understanding, in combination with science, in this 13 minute video on YouTube below.

He makes the point that a virus does have a form of consciousness and it doesn't want to destroy it's own habitat and goes on explain that they mutate into something milder over time because of this, and learn to live with us.

He concludes, saying that the reaction by the countries to lock down is the correct decision right now.


About Sadhguru: Yogi, mystic and visionary, Sadhguru is a spiritual master with a difference. An arresting blend of profundity and pragmatism, his life and work serves as a reminder that yoga is a contemporary science, vitally relevant to our times.

I 100 % agree with his analysis (maybe except the virus coming from animals ;) but we will never know this)

the virus is here to stay and we need to find a way to live together instead of having fear and wage a war against it

Major Ed Dames, who some of us know as running the solar kill shot project, recently had an interview with George Noory on Coast to Coast. He said the origin is from an animal from the Wuhan lab and an employee accidentally got infected without knowing, and spread it. The discussion got into countries that have developed bioweapons and gave examples of what they can do to show the similarities.

So to recap:
- man tinkers on a virus
- man infects the animal
- animal infects man
- man spreads virus to the world
So it could indeed be from an animal but I still think it is a manmade virus.

I heard another theory that an employee from the lab wanted to make some more money and wanted to sell it to the US but that the chinese intervened and that the vial broke in the process.


Not that it makes a difference in the current situation. We need to get trough it.

What he says I know is true of any kind of bacteria. Many kinds of them live in/on our bodies and we could not even live without them.

However, I do not know if he is right with this regarding viruses. They are also not seen as 'living' unlike bacteria. They are like 'programs' re-programming the DNA of 'living' cells / hosts to propagate and 'exist' (hence the computer analogy where we call these intrusive 'hostile' programs also 'viruses' as an analogy to the biological ones).

Yes we do have 'resident' viruses, such as the Herpes virus which many or most of us have in their bodies from early on. But they are not 'living' in our bodies but rather lie dormant/hidden until activated when their time has come.

Truly, viruses become milder after a time so this would however support the hypothesis that even these forms of existence (even if not 'living') change their survival program(ming) by not damaging the overarching host body complex (= human in this case) by occupying the cells/hosts or some of them in some organs (e.g. lungs).

I can't access the copy/paste function where I am right now but I've looked up the definition of a successful parasite and found the point that Sadghuru is making here. A successful parasite (can be bacterium, virus, any microorganism) is one who keeps the host alive; it doesn't reproduce nor grow too fast nor does it do really detrimental things to the host as that ends its own life.

Which, of course reminds me of our gut microbiome which is full of 'good bacteria' which make us their home and offer us all kinds of services in return, e.g. making B and other vitamins, help with digesting food, making it more difficult for 'bad bacteria' to take over. In fact, a wise human will select for the 'good bacteria' by eating probiotics which are the food they like, thus ensuring that the 'good bacteria' thrive and take care of their home (us).
If you'd like to read more on this topic I loved the book "The Longevity Paradox" by Steven Gundry. He delivers the concept in some fun and funny ways:-))
He calls these helper bacteria our 'gut buddies'.

It also reminds me of a point my high school biology teacher made to illustrate the point of 'symbiosis', i.e. that the mitochondria within every cell in our body were once a type of bacteria that lived separately from us and, over time, evolved to help us as we help them.
MItochondria make energy really effectively. So effectively they have plenty to spare for the cell that surrounds them, i.e. for us.
We provide food, protection and such so that they can specialize in what they do really well and outsource these other complex tasks to the cell.
We help mitochondria, mitochondria help us.
At our current point in evolution none of our cells survives without mitochondria and we consider them part of our cells.
Our teacher went on to state that though the science was pretty clear about mitochondria being bacteria that coevolved really successfully with us, we weren't yet (at the time) sure about the other organelles in our body but she thought that other organelles were probably also initially bacteria separate from us.
Sounds a lot like some spiritual teachings doesn't it? Don't think in terms of the duality of 'us' and 'them', instead think of us each as part of the whole, inextricably linked.

So, perhaps, as Sadghuru says, corona does not want to kill us. It is trying to find out how to live successfully and that definition includes living with us.

Even scientists cannot agree if a virus meets the definition of "life". But I think part of the definition is:
  1. It has a method to reproduce. (The definition I remember from long ago does not say "it reproduces on its own" it just said "it reproduces".)
  2. It uses a process to create energy. (Not sure if viruses do this or not. Not sure if a virus has mitochondria to make energy or not like cells do.)
