The system is crumbling, but self is the answer - Anton Fernando

As we know it, the system out there is crumbling under the pressure from the #CoronaVirus outbreak. 

By the system I mean: the banking system, the money system, the political system, the healthcare system, the housing system, the labor and employment system, the educational system, farming and food systems, basically all things that suppose to support life on earth, for a life of dignity and well-being. 

Profiteering has taken a serious toll, everything is for a profit, caring and supporting is not the principle of management of systems on earth, everything is used and abused for profit and power. 

Let's not blame the Chinese for the Corona Virus, sure their intense desire for profiteering within the wildlife animal business may have contributed to it, but this desire for profiteering at any cost exists in all cultures, so everyone is equally responsible for the madness that's unfolding in the world today. Its a serious moment for self-reflection, cant' go on blaming anyone or any group. 

The desire for profiteering must end within self, in that we can create a new system that supports all life, that honors all life, and cares for all life. 

So as the system crumbles, fear not, for something new is busy birthing itself, but we must do our part: breathe, reflect, and share solutions that are best for all. Everyone has a voice that can contribute to creating a new system, everyone has that power of life within themselves to make a stand. Again, the change must start within self, end of profiteering must start within self. 

Self is the key for a new world system to be born.
