The unwilling(ness of) coronavirus

“Back in June I said that everyone is trying to will the coronavirus out of existence. And look where that has gotten us to,” my friend said.

While it is fine to think of everything as objects of the mind one still questions whether it is helpful to do so or not.

Because in the end, objects of the mind of object of reality must be dealt with in terms of being objects of reality, not as objects of the mind.

In short, given that all things are equal to prioritise the mind over matter is more problematic the opposite.

If we are to survive this pandemic we need to take physical as well as mental precautions. We cannot believe that by simply ignoring it or by willing it away, it will go away.

    An instructor of mine said there is three types of willing:

    1. To have will. Ability to do. Self, desire.

    2. will-Full-ness: as in full of oneself; self centered Being.

    2. Willingness: as in open to. The act of Being itself.
