I believe Loneliness is a bigger pandemic than Covid 19. But because of this corona virus, we`ve isolated ourselves, though not of our own accord. And readjusted to a life we didn’t even think could exist – a life in isolation and fear. And it`s become so natural to hide behind masks, computers, smart phones and TVs ….
What if a loneliness` vaccine is found and it works without any side effects?
That loneliness is one of the greatest diseases of our time is not just my idea. (I even dare to call it a pandemic). In fact, when this idea was born on my white paper, I decided to see if others had made the same analogy. It turned out that I was not the only one to come to this conclusion. If you don’t believe me, google it and you will find interesting articles and statistics, for example you can have a look here (https://socialpronow.com/loneliness-statistics/).
We all need to be loved, heard and understood, to feel significant, liked and accepted as we are. I wonder if you got that weird feeling of emptiness when even with family, school, visiting friends, or even at a party, you felt you’re all alone. I know such people and I admit that I have also “fallen into this hole”, but no longer. Um, are there absurdly happy people who are on top of the wave every second. People who always find balance and have never been sad and lonely ?! I deeply doubt it!
I don’t know what your loneliness` vaccine is, but I`ve found mine … and I don’t know exactly when it started working. Now that I think about it, I don’t even remember the last time I felt lonely! Angry, powerless, offended, irritated – yes, but not lonely and empty! It is only now, as I write these lines, that I realize that there is a “vaccine” for that deep void with which every human being is born on this earth. Unfortunately, many people fill this, let’s call it a “vacuum” with the wrong things – pleasures, money, parties, extreme sports, alcohol, drugs, sex, gambling, video games, fashion, workaholism ….. and when they wake up in the morning – they are lonely again and even more spiritually empty and robbed. And they delude themselves that they are happy and that they live truly … and their souls are so robbed and hollow.

Many are just too shallow to even notice those feelings😏
Does soul even exist in modern society?
Thanks for you comment! 🙂
I totally agree with you! Something interesting I found in the Bible once: it is written that: God calls us ” living souls”. It is quite deep meaning I think. But I guess what you mean about if soul even exist in modern society. Well, a spiritual person has noticed that many people live, behave, think, and talk as they do not have a soul. People in our days just become more and more insensible, without love and sympathy, mean, self-righteous, angry, and so on (oh, it`s a long list). The best explanation is given by Jesus: ” Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold…” (Matthew 24:12). He meant that this coldness in people and lack of morality will happen before His second return, the time we live in now, actually. Even prophet Isaiah who lived in 8th century BC said:
“Woe to those who call evil good
and good evil,
who put darkness for light
and light for darkness,
who put bitter for sweet
and sweet for bitter.” (Isaiah 5:20)
Isn`t that the condition of the modern society? – Things that were inadmissible and unmoral, and even crazy 20 years ago now are so normal and acceptable….”The New Normal”….
