Dear friends, dear visitors to our seminars, dear readers of this letter,
Yes - it is serious.
The corona crisis is more serious than we all thought.
It really does exist, this ghostly disease that is fatal to some people, is also contagious.
And there is the unspeakable fear that creeps into all cells.
There are endless discussions about how real and how dangerous the disease actually is,
and how useful the measures are that are taken against it.
But what really matters Now?
Should we just be more hectic, heroic and smarter?
We know that what we are writing now will provoke resentment or misunderstood as resignation:
but we write it very concious, and we are convinced that it will lead us to our strength and the really appropriate
From our point of view, it is now about
to acknowledge that we cannot fight reality.
That it is wiser to let her take hold of you
and surrender to it.
All of our respirators, disinfectants, and protective suits, or all of our anger at those who caused the epidemic, didn't really stop them. All of our anger at the nonsensical scaremongering or at the hoarding, did not appease the fear.
We are shaken from the ground up.
How about feeling this shock with every fiber of our being and looking where it leads us?
There is an inner voice in each of us that calls to us in this crisis,
what to do or not to do at any given moment.
Sometimes it will be a matter of strictly following the rules.
And sometimes the inner voice may also advise us to behave differently from what we perceive as the mainstream around us.
How about paying attention to this inner voice Now - and also just paying attention to everyone else, the government, the panic makers, the conspiracy theorists, the hamster buyers, the advocates - to respect everyone, however he behaves?
And also ourselves ...
How would it be to let this crisis take hold so deeply that it leads us to our innermost center?
There is the center of strength, trust, love, wisdom, devotion in each of us: our heart.
Let us walk with determination in our hearts. Only our hearts know how we can survive this crisis.
Our hearts do not let us sink under the fear of death: yes, there is death. But the heart also knows that it comes at exactly the right time for each of us and that we do not have to defend ourselves against death. He is actually our friend. It helps us to live. If we can face the fact that we are mortal, we can become very alive and make the best of every moment.
We can scold the curfews and whine about the financial crisis.
But we can also accept life's invitation to come to our senses now, to rest, to ourselves.
How about if we now take time every day for silence, for nature, for prayer, for meditation, for connecting with the great secret of life? And for the people who are particularly close to our hearts?
Psychoneuroimmunology knows today that prayer, meditation, love actually have a major impact on the immune system.
Now is the time. Of course, but not only for medical reasons.
We will discover that this crisis will change our own consciousness and the consciousness of humanity as quickly and as hard as hardly anything before. We will discover that we are seized by a new consciousness.
A consciousness that is anchored in the heart. A consciousness that comes from devotion to reality, from trust, from love, from joy, from connection.
Now is the time to open up to this new consciousness with determination.
We invite you if you can and like ro connect you with us in our daily meditation.
Maybe at 7 p.m. or at another time.
I sit up straight.
And feel the earth beneath me in gratitude.
I open myself to the love that comes to me from heaven.
Feeling into my hands, I leave doing and step into being.
And then I feel my breath.
I notice how it inhales and exhales in itself.
I feel the breath in the space of my heart.
I breathe in the name of Jesus.
And collect when you breathe in the name of Jesus
all fear, all worry, everything oppressive, everything heavy that is in me,
as well as what comes out of the world around me,
collect it and bring it to the center of my heart,
where it dissolves in the fire of love.
And then I exhale in the name of Christ.
I breathe out the name of Christ in light, joy, love, healing, happiness, peace.
And with every new inhalation in this way:
We wish everyone the courage of the heart!
With a warm bond

A letter from the virus:
From the creator of the virus:
Here is an excerpt from the book Queen of the Forest - a shamanic healing path with the homeopathic remedy Santo Daime (Ayahuasca), Johannes Latzel
My god, it's a roller coaster. I was almost convinced that my ultimate enlightenment had finally taken place. And what is that now?
In the middle of the ritual, I realize that I am in a malaria area. I don't trust malaria prophylaxis. And this Wolfgang I met here? Isn't it still all yellow? Yes, he said it himself: he has been here before and got malaria! And didn't I hear it clearly from him: Not only he, but also many other guests would have gotten malaria during their stay here?
In fact, the area consists almost entirely of swamps and tortuous streams. So many mosquitos! My God, if I get malaria here and die miserably? Hot fear creeps up on me. "Concentrate on the chants, concentrate on the prayer," calls an inner voice. "You know where that leads: energy follows attention. Concentrated attention is creative power. If you continue to think about malaria, you could do it on Really get the end, so stop and focus on the chants! "
No chance. The thought "Malaria!", Just a small plant, becomes a tree that grows to heaven. And grows and grows. With frantic speed. The highly concentrated thought "malaria" fills me up completely, fills every fiber, every cell of my being.
"Stop! Be attentive to the songs! "Calls the inner voice again.
Suddenly I know with unmistakable certainty: my attention has fallen into the primordial ground of creation, the deepest ground of the soul, where my reality arises, the matrix of creation. I know I'm going to get malaria. And nothing will be able to stop the disease. This is hell! This is unspeakable agony in the face of unbearable fainting. The devil caught my soul. There is no way out ... Everything in me is dark, jet black ...
And yet I sing, if I continue to dance with the last of my strength, I hold myself like a drowning man to the singing and dancing of the community, which, to the best of its ability, continuously focuses its attention on God.
There. A tiny little light. A very small, tender thought: "Then you lie in bed, maybe you will die and maybe not, but in any case it was that with your exploration of the rituals, then you can no longer participate. You can't continue studying at your university! "
"No longer participating in a ritual? Stop studying when I'm here at this incredible university? I want that though! I would so much like to be taught by the Queen of the Forest! "
Queen of the forest!
It's a different idea than malaria. A thousand devils struggle to blow out the light of this thought again, to divert my attention from the Queen again. But it doesn't work. I sense that it has to do with my real interest. Or should I even call it love?
Suddenly I suspect that our world is being created anew every moment. It is created in our own soul ground by what we love and fear. Our interest is our creative power.
We have to meet what interests us. We will not escape it. Except our interest changes.
In any case, one thing is certain: the queen of the forest is more important to me than malaria.
The light grows very slowly. The giant tree of disease begins to shrink. At some point I know: I won't get malaria. I will stay healthy here all the time. Deep gratitude fills me. The gratitude of someone who has just seen someone save their lives. "
Dear readers of our newsletter,
different positions are represented in the current emotionally heated atmosphere. Some point to specific cases of severe respiratory diseases, even of young people, and deaths from respiratory diseases. Many are very afraid to fall ill or even die and are grateful to the government for making every effort to combat the corona virus with rigorous measures. Others point to the actual death rate and the difference between "infected" and "actually sick", the fact that not everyone who tests corona virus who dies has died of corona and scolds the scaremongering. Still others are furious against the fact that in a few days basic democratic laws such as freedom of assembly and freedom of movement will be overridden and critical articles will disappear from the Internet after a short time due to obvious censorship. They sense the influence of unprecedented targeted manipulation in the mass media and suspect that they are governed by power and economic interests. Still others are finally demanding a meaningful scientific investigation into the real danger of the corona virus, or even suspecting that the government is still not implementing it because it is afraid of losing face, as the inappropriateness of the measures would then become apparent. Still others look stunned at the flood of advertising for breathing masks and shake their heads at the fact that apparently some have in mind nothing other than to profit from the crisis for themselves.
It seems to us that wisdom and inner calm are the top priorities. And humility. Probably none of us clearly see the whole truth.
From our perspective, the corona crisis is the beginning of a process in which humanity is entering a deep transformation process - a process of spiritual awakening.
From psychotherapy we know the phenomenon that individual people get into a mental illness in the initial phase of their spiritual awakening. For example, you develop an anxiety psychosis or a mania or a depression or even alternately all three of these varieties of psychoses. It is then crucial for the therapist of such a patient to pay attention to the phenomenon of "transmission" and not to be infected by the psychosis of his patient, but to be vigilant: otherwise the psychotherapist falls too easily into the relationship with the patient himself fear or even anger.
It seems to us that almost all of humanity is currently in a state of anxiety. We see this as the beginning of a collective healing process. The opportunity to wake up like never before. The process of awakening means letting go of resistance to reality more and more. To be able to accept reality more and more in love as it is. Not to judge anyone. To understand everyone. And to connect with the place in the core of the soul that is always healthy, always healthy, always at peace.
We cordially invite you all to meditate in silence with us every morning and evening, whoever likes it, as we suggest in our text on the corona crisis on this website, or however you like to do it. If possible, we meditate in the morning and evening at seven o'clock for a quarter of an hour or even longer. And if it is not possible at seven o'clock, then at a different time.
"Energy follows attention," says a key word from Hawaiian philosophy. In times of crisis, it matters where we focus our attention. In this context, we refer once again to the excerpt from the book that we quote at the end of our text on the corona crisis on this website.
Perhaps you may also let these two very different statements by authorities work on your heart.
Professor Sucharit Bhakdi:
Professor Christian Drosten:
Perhaps you may also participate in this petition, which Ms. Merkel asks for a scientific investigation into the dangerousness of the corona virus:
The bond in silence is a great force. Thank you for connecting with each other and with your heart.
