They Are Trying to Take Our Breath Away

By Lisa Maliga, copyright 2020

When I used to hang out on MySpace back in 2007, I often came across people who had the following quote on their profile:

“Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.”

It was a quote that seemed to concentrate on life’s highlights. What took people’s breath aforestcatway? A dramatic sunset, a rainbow, blooming flowers, majestic waterfalls, kittens and puppies, new fallen snow, seeing a loved one after a long absence, and so on. While I appreciate any of the above, I want to be able to breathe with no obstructions. I’ve been practicing yoga for many years. Breathing is essential, you can’t go more than a few minutes without dying.

Yet due to this alleged virus, sometimes referred to as a disease, we are supposed to be wearing face masks/coverings and resemble women living under Sharia law. Right after the 9/11 terrorist attack, anyone wearing a head covering was considered an enemy. Two decades later, Americans and those in many other countries, are being forced to cover most of their face because of Covid-19/corona virus, a sickness with an incredibly low mortality rate.

Our ‘new normal’ is of a society that discourages hugs and handshakes. Smiles are hidden. Prayer, singing, and chanting are forbidden in churches and temples.

The forced mask-wearing in most parts of the world is all about fear, fear of germs and viruses. Fear of each other. Fear vs. faith. It is to make people more compliant. To take tests that are very inaccurate and to test positive can make some quarantine for two weeks. It’s house arrest. The next step is to make fear-ridden people clamor for a vaccine so they can return to normal. A vaccine that will allegedly eradicate coronavirus/Covid-19. Will it? Will the flu shot stop the flu? Why is it called a flu shot instead of an ANTI-flu shot?

The mass hypnosis/hysteria around a flu that can’t survive in the high temperatures of summer is insane. It messes with people’s minds and makes them OCD, incessantly using hand sanitizer. Doctors and other experts are telling us to wash our hands with soap and water, and to do so for at least twenty seconds! Have we regressed to kindergarten?

SANITIZE, SANITIZE, SANITIZE

Another way they’re trying to keep us from breathing properly is to poison us with hand sanitizers. The ingredients contain mostly alcohol with some fake fragrance that can contain up to 200 ingredients, but the FDA doesn’t require them to be listed.

These alcohol-laden sanitizers are liberally sprayed on shopping carts and baskets. All products on store shelves, along with the shelves, are covered with sanitizing chemicals to keep that alleged Covid-19 at bay. Want to touch and inhale [even through a mask] more synthetic chemicals? You will when you check out and discover that all the store’s surfaces have been sprayed. A clerk said it had to be done every hour. Wow, what a fun job she had.

Germaphobes must be giddy with relief, feeling they’re getting their time to be in a world awash in sanitizer.

When the virus scare began in March, I was astonished to see customers waiting for an employee to spray down each shopping cart. I saw that nonsense and took a cart from the parking lot and pushed it in, avoiding the free chemical spray.

It’s now the land of “we spray it for you” and they use the power stream setting. I encountered a shopping cart that had been so over-saturated in sanitizer that I thought it was drunk. I flagged down the masked and gloved employee, who, through foggy eyeglasses, noticed that the plastic seat flap was now a pond. She insisted on cleaning it off and it made little difference.

10 minutes later I felt my throat was closing up. I choked back a cough and a sneeze. My nose started to run. Even blowing my nose would’ve garnered fearful glances from masked customers. I was a suspect! It was all so ludicrous. A year ago, such a scenario was unimaginable.

I went outside and into the fresh night air. I felt fine again. It was obviously the germ-free cart that was upsetting my allergies.

In mid-July the mandates from governors and mayors increased and the big chain stores were requiring all customers to mask up. A few that weren’t were advertising the fact. I went several miles out of my way to shop at a store that wouldn’t bother customers about covering their faces. I was hoping I’d be around unmasked people like it was 2019. Hah! Every employee and customer sported face diapers. I chatted with the teenager cleaning the carts with his spray bottle. He was cordial but I noticed he pulled his mask higher.

There is a simple way to clean off any sanitized cart or basket. It’ll take you about 30 seconds. Bring along a few paper towels or clean rag and wipe off that germ-free cart or basket. Pay attention to the handle[s]. It does the job and you won’t be inhaling toxic fumes.

I have a book about Tibetan Ayurveda [medicine]. There’s a section about skillful behavior and if you suppress the urge to breathe, which is what wearing a mask does, then this is what can happen:

~ Dulling of mental clarity
~ Tumor formation
~ Heart disease

Additionally, wearing a mask for long periods of time can result in headaches, a weakened immune system, acne, and a staph infection may occur if the mask isn’t cleaned or changed frequently. 

If we continue to allow our rights to be taken away, what do we have to look forward to? A police state of perpetual surveillance, lockdowns, social distancing, unsafe 5G, testing and vaccinations, mandatory masks, medical tyranny, restricted travel, no belief in God or freedom of a spiritual path. There will be no allegiance to anyone but the leader of the new world order/the great reset–the Antichrist.

One of the saddest images I saw occurred when I was waiting in line to enter a supermarket. A frail, elderly man limping past the masked shoppers, leaning on a cane, looked at us and softly apologized for not wearing a mask.

Why should a disabled senior citizen apologize for wanting to breathe? Why should any human being, regardless of age and physical condition?

Many Christians and readers of the bible think these are the end times. But God also helps those who help themselves. Buddha Shakyamuni spoke of the degeneration of society 2,600 years ago. Mahatma Gandhi said “Be the change you wish to see in the world.” That is possible, if you believe it. Start by not wearing a mask. By smiling at those you see whether they are covered up or not. Don’t be angry at those who live in a state of delusion and march lockstep to unjust rules and fear mongering. They worship the god of this world. Love them, love them as they have that seed within them that is the same that is within you. Be at peace with yourself and others will be at peace, too. We are not alone. We never will be. We are all interdependent.

  1. The virus has been hard but we are so very lucky. Over half a million in the USA alone have died from it. The majority of those people had loved ones who are missing them desperately and many of those people died alone. It has been hard on my niece, an ER doc as she weathered the worst of the first onslaught.

    We are all in the same storm but not the same boat. I worked in the arts. I great many of my friends in the ‘arts gig’ economy had their career and lives destroyed. It’s been tough for ALL of us. My husband and I lost a great deal of work/money this year but we also gave away more than ever this year. The first thing I did is organize my friends and neighbors into making masks, we gave over 2000 of them away to people we did not know, including the Navajo Nation. When manufacturers caught up to the need we turned to supporting the front line workers.

    It’s been hard. I see my friends and neighbors are also having a hard time and so I, we all, practice random kindness.

    In the end it is what how we choose to react. Our Grandfathers and Great Grandfathers fought WWI and WWII. Our families survived the grinding despair of the Great Depression. We are so spoiled. I practiced yoga, have asthma and am on the spectrum and can’t abide things on my face, but I thought of my niece, elbows deep in other human’s chest, sucked it up and wore the dammed thing.

    So grateful that we got the second vaccine today. I will continue to wear the mask as I value others.

      1. I’m handicapped. I am limited in what I can do with my time. I won’t be making soap but I’m sure it’s great for people who are craftsy. I’m just an artist. Thanks! 🙂
