A Beautiful Hug for Our Best Friend The Leaders

Written by Gede Prama

In countries where statistics are more transparent, during these lock down months the suicide rate has risen sharply, the number of domestic violence has also risen very sharply, the unemployment rate has gone sharply too. Reading signs like this, let’s knock on the hearts of our friends who sit on the government seats.

Saving human lives to be saved from the corona virus is certainly important, but saving people’s stomachs from starvation is also important. In times of crisis like this in particular, life choices are no longer bad or good, but is the choices of worse or worst. Humans who die of corona are of course bad, but if the economy isn’t opened for a long time period, much worse things can happen.

In a number of developed countries, it is reported that security forces have been fought by people who are hungry and need work. In the old science of leadership it is long said, to look at life with a helicopter point of view. Pull yourself up, then look at the corona issue in a broader perspective. It is not only related to viruses, but also related to many other things.

When a crisis occurs, concentrate your energy on cooling the places that are prone to burning. And at this time, billions of people who are threatened by starvation due to losing their jobs are prone to be a wild fire. Billions of children who misses their friends and school. Millions of people who have the potential to experience depression and even can conduct suicide.

Inspired from here, remove all the lockdown horse goggles. Health officials continue to work to save victims of the corona virus, at the same time concentrating energy on creating as much work as possible, returning the children to school. Above all, stop spreading excessive panic mainly through decisions that can make people more chaotic.

As seen in the daily life, if ordinary people panic then only a few people will be afraid. If the leader panics, the human race is gripped with fear. And human collective fear can invites many dangers later on. Since the earth is vibrating on higher level (Co2 down, ozone pits are closed, conflict and war stopped), let’s invite all people to vibrate in a higher level too.

And the best vehicle for human vibration to rise is beauty. For that reason, return the world of children to be beautiful again. Return the life of adolescents to be beautiful again. And the most beautiful act is giving jobs to billions of people who are threatened with hunger. Thank you for giving you precious time to read this open letter.

About the author

Gede Prama

Gede Prama started his spiritual journey through a dialogue with his symbolic Guru in a village at the north of Bali. The journey is then being enriched with his experiences of studying abroad, his meetings with the world greatest spiritual Gurus: His Holiness Dalai Lama, The Venerable Thich Nhat Hanh, as well as Professor Karen Armstrong; and also being deepened by his intense meditation practices.

Despite the fact that he was once a CEO of a large corporation with thousand of employees, and was traveling abroad frequently for the purpose of teaching, yet, being deeply moved by the Bali bombing incident in 2002, he then decided to leave everything and went back to his home island.
He has never leave Bali for the past few years. In fact, he rarely leaves the silence of the forest where he lives, except for the purpose of teaching at the sacred sites within Bali.
