How to face COVID-19 without any fears using Rajayoga?

COVID-19 is spreading all over the world. It also brings with it the fears of death, and uncertainties of finances, job, logistics, health, etc.

Fear aggravates Parkinsons symptoms. SO it is necessary to have some tools of thinking to overcome these fears and uncertainties.

Rajayoga(RY) has an alternate perspective to the self. This is in contrast to the perspective of Western science’s view of the self. As per the latter, the self is body. When body ceases, so also the self. Fear is mainly due to the possibility of the failure of the desire of the self to continue.

RY offers the view of the self as an infinitesimal point source of energy. The point source of energy is indestructible and responsible for consciousness phenomenon. The point is referred to as soul.

So, who am I? I am a driver (soul) in a car (body). I am independent from body.

The independent qualities of a soul are peace, love, and bliss. But I forget to experience these qualities, when I occupy the body, and come into awareness of the self as a body.

Now when I switch my awareness to my true form: an infinitesimal point source, I shall experience my original qualities.

My true form is independent of the physical situations that I am going through.

Basically RY meditation is a practice internalising these concepts. I need to switch my awareness to point consciousness from body consciousness to overcome fears and uncertainities.

Below is a youtube video showing a sample practice of these ideas.

      The trick is in being lost in the awareness of the self as a indestructible and eternal point of energy.
