corona You’re The Expert Now!

The best lesson from the ever growing list of unclear, sometimes contradictory coronavirus advice and even facts on daily living and long range plans, is this.

Deepen and strengthen trust and faith in your critical thinking skills, willingness to thoughtfully and responsibly take good care of your life, and take further steps based on the outcome of this combined awareness.

Do so with an honest and caring mind and spirit since our individual outlooks and actions affect other people.

Clear minded knowledge of your values, priorities, along with an open and critical mind is necessary now both to protect oneself and contribute to our community functioning.

Whereas there always exists the potential for disagreement or dislike of government laws, the dominant thrust of coronavirus times’ laws uniquely is it seeps into life sector areas which are highly personal.

Being personally affected invites a personally thought out response.

I may not like paying taxes or the number of traffic lights along a particular street.
I dutifully comply with each of these, neither of which infiltrates how I use my time, space, and whether or not I dress my face with a mask.

Experts have limitations in knowledge and purpose.
They are often not neutral on a particular subject, may not directly state this before speaking their position, and therefore give the impression of telling plain truth.

You already are potentially your own expert on personal truth.

And, as you gain skill in understanding your own unique values and assessing how and when to apply these to coronavirus government statements and local advice, another benefit to you will be a stronger ability to critically recognize other areas of your life which you feel may benefit from examination.

Relationships for example, whether romantic or meaningful in some other way, such as with friends, co-workers, or neighbors, are all candidates which may gain from applying your increase in ability to examine them.

Develop and know who you are, your highest concerns in balance with others in your life and surroundings, and how to integrate your self-knowledge to increase your life quality, which when applied in a spirit of service helps everyone.
