We all know that the Mother Nature is the Faithful Healer of The Soul. It is also said that “A walk in the woods walks the soul back home.”
Mother Nature has always provided all our needs but we have become so engrossed and selfish that we could no longer see how much harm we have done to Mother Nature and thus in return to Our Own Selves!
The nature has its own ways of pointing out the need to preserve and respect the natural resources. With Coronavirus pandemic, millions are getting affected globally each day and majority of populations have been forced to stay indoors.
With the spread of a virus so mighty and mysterious, the entire world has come to an almost standstill. It has spread across more than 210 countries and has affected millions. All this is the result of our callous behavior towards the precious gifts of nature.
Now as many of us are indoors, nature has begun to breathe. Animals and plants are relishing their moments with no or less human intervention. We all have seen pictures and videos on social media of animals and birds moving around freely in what they could not dare to in the past because of high human commutation.
The world has slowed down and nature is breathing a sigh of relief!
As the nature is healing, so you should also do. It is the time that you also start working towards your own healing – The Healing Of Soul.
We at Brahma Kumaris believe that there is a mystical connection between our consciousness, thought process and actions and its impact on the world. You should understand that to bring in any long-lasting environmental or social change we need to first change the minds and hearts of people.
The present environmental crisis indeed needs a change in paradigm of our thought process and actions. We all have to start working towards awakening of our souls first.
Once your soul is healed and connected to the divine, you will be able to derive the highest source of joy.
The healing process begins with healing of your soul followed by your mind and body healing. You have to start looking inwards because that will change your attitude and you will be able to see world with different vision and take actions as per the new world requirement.
As a spiritual organization, it is our duty to help people around the globe to come out of this distressing situation with lesser pain and as a better human being. We believe if the following principles are followed with true compassion we will see the dawn of a new world very soon:
- Live with simplicity
- Buy Compassionately
- Use economically
- Learn continuously
- Share generously
When everyone will start living a non-materialistic and simple life we will be able to see that Mother Nature has enough resources to feed us all. We all need to be little compassionate and think about other’s needs as well while buying essentials as if one person buys with all the money there will be millions left without anything to feed them.
We should thrive to learn and grow everyday as that not only nurtures your mind but also your soul. Last but not the least; we should not stop ourselves from sharing our fortune with the lesser fortunate. We should support the needy ones and share generously.
Let us all learn the lessons which mother Earth wants us to learn through testing times. Learn to be thankful, compassionate and generous. These human traits are lacking these days in human race and thus need to restructure our outlook towards the world.
In order to work on your thoughts and actions, you need to start listening to your inner self. So, to listen to that voice you need to calm your mind which can be done through RajYoga meditation.
Just sit calmly and focus on what going on in your mind. Don’t interrupt it. Then with every inhale imagine all goodness Mother Nature has provided you with and with every exhale release any worry or stress you have in your mind. This exercise will help you to become stronger inside and you will be able to fight through the pandemic with lesser stress and better vision of the world.

Yoga – As we are locked down indoors and it’s not allowed to go out and do your regular walk or running but you can definitely do yoga at home to keep yourself fit and healthy.
Drink Warm Water- As advised by health practitioners, it is a must to drink little warm water at regular intervals to keep yourselves hydrated and don’t let your throat to get dry any time.
Wash Your Hands Regularly - It is a must as you wouldn’t want COVID-19 virus to get into your house. Wash your hands for good 20 seconds with soap and then rinse it completely. High standards of hygiene need to be followed by each one of us even when staying indoors.
