It does intrigue me that circumstances have arisen where everyone has been asked to “go inside.”
Yes, I know the authorities intend that literally – don’t be mingling with the crowds – but I am finding more and more of us are looking at that on a deeper level, expanding our understanding of the instruction to “go inside.” It’s “as if,” to borrow Joe’s phrase, the coronavirus (perhaps as the agent of Mother Nature, or the Earth — good old Gaia – is advising us to turn inward, explore our own depths.
Or, at any rate, that’s how I prefer to mythologize and re-imagine what’s happening.
This is a long, leisurely, sweet hello – we should probably continue this in the main forums. There does seem to be a thread or two related to the pandemic already in progress in the Myth in the News forum. You might take a look and see if you can relate your thoughts to one of those and respond, or start a conversation yourself.
