Corona We Know Whatz Bad – So Whatz Good? – The Positive Side Of The Coronavirus – There’s Always Something Good

I have come to learn that nothing is totally bad in life.  This belief even applies to the Coronavirus.  I will show you its positive sides in a list of good things that will ultimately result from us enduring through this pandemic. 

We tend to see only the negative aspects of challenges because that is what we are dealing with in the present moment.  We have become accustomed not to expect the positive aspect, though it is inevitable.  We don’t see anything positive because we do not look beyond the surface.

But based on my life experiences, often my worse trials and challenges resulted in unforeseen good, which was ultimately realized many years later. 

  • Being very ill made me more conscious about taking better care of my health and lifestyle.
  • Being an insecure people-pleaser for years, through disappointment and pain, lead me to confidence, better self-worth, and self-love.
  • Losing nearly all of my material possessions, becoming bankrupt to care for my elderly mother, humbled me. Now I need less, have less, and am happier.

Experiences like these are what changed how I evaluate trials.  I am constantly looking for the good in bad or good situations.

“Any kind of crisis can be good. It wakes you up.” – Ryan Reynolds


God really is good, all the time. 

If you look for a silver lining in every situation, it will be there.  I believe that exemplifies the belief that God’s understanding is mightier than ours.  The infinity of God’s understanding goes far beyond whatever negative emotions that we may experience at the time.

“Great is our Lord, and mighty in power; His understanding is infinite.” – Psalm 147:5 – NKJV

We often focus on what we experience in the present never realizing that present pain ultimately leads to reward, discernment, and joy someday in the future.  Today’s rain will lead to blooming flowers.

“In This Corner, Religion” – “In This Corner, Spirituality” – Religion VS Spirituality – Yeah, I’m Gonna Go There!

The world is a kind of spiritual kindergarten where millions of bewildered infants are trying to spell “God” with the wrong blocks. – Edwin Arlington Robinson

I can no longer say that I am a religious man.  I am a spiritual man, with religion in my spirit, but I am not a regular participant in organized religion. 

I haven’t fancied being a part of any large organized groups in general, since high school.  Therefore, part of my reason for not being religious is that I do not like to be a part of large groups.

Being a religious man is like saying that you are an outdoorsman, a romantic man, or even a party man.  The driving words before ‘man’ implies regularly participating in that specific sort of activity, outdoor sports, romance, and partying, respectively.

I am not a religious man because I do not regularly go to church.

I stopped going on a regular basis in 2014 after my mother passed.  When caring for her, I attended Catholic mass, our family religion, out of respect for her.  I have years prior moved away from the Catholic church.  I came back to respect your religion.  Though my mother was religious, she was also spiritual.  One does not have to negate the other though it often does.

“De-virusize” Using Da Lightbulb In The Sky – The Sun, Son! – Devirusize UR Health With Da Sun!

Devirusize Urself With Da Sun

In the first post of this series, I will discuss one aspect of Devirusizing, properly using the sun.

I spend time in the sun as much as I can.  Colorado has about 360 Days of sun each year, even when it snows.  After preparing this intensely researched post, I am much more educated about the sun.

The new information I gained was quite enlightening and will result in me adjusting my habits, as I hope will be the case for you.  You may just learn sumthin.

People’s Opinions On Life’s Road During Crisis – I’m Talking About ‘Some People’ & ‘Them People’

“I am as convicted, as passionate, and as certain as I am today because of the trials I’ve endured, conquered, and failed.
I thought that I was only whistling and walking down this road called Life.” – Kevy Michaels

Kevy Tying To Take A Peaceful Stroll Down Life’s Road

I’ve walked on many of life’s roads which led me through the uptown side of town. I’ve also strolled ‘Backatown‘, tripping over a few street ditches.

“Back of town,” said by many locals as “Backatown,” is a term that asks one to visualize New Orleans as front and back. The “front” would be the streets and neighborhoods directly along the Mississippi River, starting with the Vieux Carré (the Old Square) aka the French Quarter. – Nov 4, 2013 -Go NOLA – Back of Town


I am what New Orleanians refer to as a “river rat“. I grew up two blocks from the Mississippi River. In other words, I lived ‘offa Tchoupitoulas Street’.


Tchoupitoulas Street (CHOP-i-TOO-ləs) is a street in New Orleans, Louisiana, USA that runs through uptown (where I grew up). It is the through street closest to the Mississippi River. Formerly, the street was heavily devoted to river-shipping commerce; but as shipping concerns gravitated to other locations in the latter part of the 20th century, more of the street has been utilized for residential and other business purposes. – Tchoupitoulas Street – Wikipedia

‘Corona Casandra’ Is Something Else – Kevy’s Earth, Wind & Fire Method To Put Her In Check!

My mind is weird.

I attribute it to being spiritually elated repeatedly through life’s seasons. It’s as if after each trial, I was rewarded with a strong, yet lighter armor.

You see, through the trials I endured, in addition to losing a part of my old self, I practically lost everyone around me, including my immediate family and closest friends. Through my trials, they abandoned me. This, I’m sure, is a familiar story. It was partly my fault because my tests were devastating ones. They devastated me.

Finding myself alone from most people in the aftermath for years, several of which were with my elderly mother as her caregiver, I learned to go within, pray, and meditate. I didn’t practice like a normal person, though. I don’t do anything like a normal person. I kinda celebrate being different. I practiced more like my devout Creole Catholic mother, like an old Catholic novena mass-attending Latina, morning, noon, and at night.

But, I prayed even more than that! And, I meditated heavily, while my mother Eunice did not. I tried to teach her and caught her watching me, when her eyes were supposed to be closed. It didn’t work. She was too old school and that was just weird to her.

I spent hours praying and meditating, even while working, exercising, jogging, and writing. Over time, I got really good at it. I still practice this way today. After over 30 years of regular practice, it has elevated my vibration. Today, I see all sorts of visions, epiphanies, and creative ideas. Sometimes having these regular inner visions alienates me from others. I take that as part of the responsibility for these gifts.

“Through devotion, blessed are the children. Praise the teacher, that brings true love to many.” – Devotion – Earth, Wind & Fire

Anyway, the way that it relates to my mind being weird is that I was jogging just yesterday, and all kinds of ideas were popping into my head. I was using my new Fitbit Versa 2 for the first time, listening to the soul music group Earth, Wind & Fire. The music stopped for a mile or so, so I jogged and prayed, as more ideas would pop into my head.

Law of Pure Potentiality – Kevy’s Experience In The Field of Pure Potentiality – Fighting The Gravity Of Life – Part 2

“The experience the Self or “self-referral”, means that our internal reference point is our own spirit, and not the objects of our experience. – Deepak Chopra – Washington Post

7 Laws of Spiritual SuccessThe spiritual Law of Pure Potentiality requires that we reach our essential state of pure consciousness.  The field of pure potentiality is an abundant spiritual influence, and in our essential state, we become our spiritual selves and are therefore granted access to God’s horn of plenty.

The law of Pure Potentiality recognizes that there is one divine spirit that connects us all, including nature, in spite of our seemingly infinite diversity. The only thing that separates us from the field is not knowing or experiencing our true nature, not embracing God in us all.

Discovering our soul should be our greatest desire for in this discovery, we are granted access to healing, wisdom, virtue, and many blessings, in the field of pure potentiality.

Experiencing and knowing our true self is critical to the law.  Our reference point must be on our own spirit, not anything external to us.  This is important because it requires relinquishing control from our egos, and seeking God within us.  This lens connects us to the God of the universe.

This means that our life experiences should never be influenced by objects outside the Self, such situations, circumstances, people, and things, seeking approval of others, or response to our every action.  Living this way fear-based.  Living in fear never has beneficial consequences.  Living in fear is like living without trusting God.

In self-referral, we become unfearful of any challenge, have respect for all people, but feel beneath no one. Self-power is therefore true power.  Power based on object-referral (external things), however, is false power.

Self-power is eternal because it is based on the knowledge of the Self.  It will draw people to you, as well as the things that you desire. It magnetizes people, situations, and circumstances to support your desires.

“This is also called support from the laws of nature. It is the support of divinity; it is the support that comes from being in the state of grace. Your power is such that you enjoy a bond with people, and people enjoy a bond with you. Your power is that of bonding – a bonding that comes from true love.” – Deepak Chopra

Deepak Chopra’s Seven Laws of Spiritual Success

I held off for some time before completing the series on The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success, a life-changing book by Deepak Chopra that I first read about 20 years ago.  This book is my favorite spiritual guidance go-to!  I have read it several times and have distributed copies to people around the world.  I can say that I strive to live by each of the seven principles in this book.
