You wake up in the morning and discover this letter in your box:
"Hi David. Just to let you know that a new 5G aerial is being installed on your property at 3am tomorrow morning. Two days later, because this council owned pole is on your property, it will have 4G, 3G and any other aerial that your government feels is beneficial installed on the pole. The fact that you have a government owned electricity pole and perhaps a Telkom pole carrying a Telkom cable on your property means that your government has the right to not only install cables on your property, but also to install ANY type of Wifi device on your property. And if you normally switch off your house wifi at night to minimise electrical interference, don't worry, because the pole outside your house will be transmitting and receiving 24 hours a day. Thanks for your loyal vote. We appreciate it. Regards, Your Government."
I put this in quotes, because how would you feel if you woke up tomorrow morning and found this letter in your post box?

My first book has been published.
Title: The Torah as an Enlightenment Toolkit
Author: David Lipschitz
Publisher: Smashwords, Inc.
"David is uniquely skilled at making the age-old Torah accessible to all. His very up-front, candid skill at translating an essentially symbolic and anecdotal tome into something that is immediately usable and relevant to today’s society is awe-inspiring. This book by David is critical to maintain the relevance of this holy wisdom in today’s modern, crazed world; something the world desperately needs. David, thus, takes us backwards, in order to go forwards, skilfully connecting our spiritual history & direction with today’s fast-paced, modern world. All the answers are in the Torah; David gives them to us in a language one can relate to and understand.
"David’s acute skill in creating “The Torah as an Enlightenment Toolkit” enables society to re-ground themselves in an age-old, G_d-given wisdom. This effectively, and expertly, replaces today’s societal lack of moral understanding with guidance that is solid, clear and usable by anyone. His skill at delivering this unique expertise is firmly encapsulated in his hard-hitting, energetic and explanatory skills that do not offend. Rather, his method immediately draws one in like a magnet to the unique, magical and critical messages offered by the Torah. David skilfully reinvents the Torah for the modern world at large."

I think we should be aware of Corona Virus, especially for any group events we do, but we shouldn’t let it distract us from our mission(s) and we must not let fear override our common sense.
Of course we must take precautions, but we mustn’t shut down our lives.
There are energetic ways to protect ourselves as well as opportunities to boost our immune systems.
For example we can use this time to stay away from sugar and starch (sugar) and perhaps take up intermittent fasting and stay away from fast foods.
We have an opportunity to use Corona as a catalyst to change the way we think. And especially to get others to change the way they think.
We have an opportunity to investigate how short our lives are and how much work we still need to do.
Let’s take these opportunities without being fearful and with the knowledge that whatever happens we have taken the right path, thought the right thoughts, eaten the right food, and as best we can, shared our world with each other.
Here’s to our health and the health of our planet.
