DIS-EASE

DisEase. It can spread quickly and along with it, hand in dirty hand, panic. I have no doubt that these small viruses multiplying rapidly have a purpose on our planet. DisEase is here to teach us a lesson as we experience this lack of ease.

Ease is to “move carefully, gradually, gently”. DisEase is the opposite of this. It can spread quickly and make us move quickly too. Humans might make careless, rash decisions. Exactly the kinds of decisions DisEase wants us to make.

Ease is the “absence of difficulty or effort”. DisEase is the opposite of this. It creates chaos and makes us go through strain. Humans might make things more complicated than necessary. Exactly the kinds of decisions DisEase wants us to make.

Ease is “to make less serious or severe”. DisEase is the opposite of this. It is relentless, harsh. Humans take matters in to their own (dirty) hands and begin to make matters worse. Exactly what DisEase wants us to do.

But Ease is persistent. Just as persistent as DisEase, although a bit slower. Ease is careful. Ease is gradual. Ease is gentle. It will ease its way into the lives of Humans again, and when it does, Ease comes with far more power than DisEase. For when it does, Ease brings with it a new sense of awareness. Humans begin to move with more caution. Observing their efforts. Making sense of it all. Before we know it, DisEase has fulfilled its purpose. For now.
